If you could go back to 1987 and buy a brand new LNG...

It would look just like this. Just arrived, complete with the original receipt.

100% mint with the original strings, all plastic still on the pickguard and cavity covers, all paperwork, and original case. Big thanks to my buddy Mike for working this deal out for me.

wow, that is amazing... was it in storage for 24 years? you'd think there might be pitting or something if it's been sitting for so long without attention with the original strings on it... looks great...what an amazing find...nice score!

Nice. If you don't mind me asking. What was the original price?

Only $1590 back in December, 1987. Nice investment for the dude that put it under his bed.

$1590 in 1987 Apple would be $64k today. Just goes to prove you have to be lucky choosing stocks or guitars to tuck away!

Every photo I've tried to load doesn't load, and it says I've exceeded my quota. I've placed two in my photobucket account until I can get them uploaded to my personal website in a few weeks.

Math is hard, buddy. You're forgiven.

Math is easy, it was $10/share in 87'. Figuring in the 3 splits and multiple dividends, not so easy! It's still just math, if you have all the data, which isn't so easy unless you're an Apple stock specialist.
