Red face Is this a Cromeboy?

270495846186

I have a chromeboy, and mine has plates with the number on the back, this one doesn't. Is this one real, just another model I don't know about or what? Not that I would ever consider paying that price for ANY guitar.

Re: Is this a Cromeboy?

I could be wrong, but to me it looks a lot more like a JS2PRM


Not sure about the plates??? The seller doesn't seem to know a lot about it. "THIS GUITAR IS BASCIALLY AN S SERIES PRESTIGE"

It sure is and the moron that had the stupid idea of getting the body signed by Joe should have his balls chopped off for getting a PRM signed on the body.

I didn't know the code letters. I know what a Chrome Boy is.

Sorry, but I'm missing something. What's the issue? Will the ink damage the aluminum somehow?

No mate - just spoils the look on the front and also easy to rub out if you play it (as I do - i have one and gig with it).

My opinion only - obviously the owner didn't mind having a signature on the front.

Got it, thanks. At least he didn't paint it, engrave it, chip holes in it, burn it, whatever. I wouldn't do those things with MY Ibanezes, but I say "it's his guitar, he can do with i what he chooses."

Just don't get me started on movie producers that destroy classic cars!
