The infamous signed "Loch Ness" guitars a new surf

Greets,
Ok so for years I have went to my pals house that owns this old yellow ibanez with pink pickups and pyramids for inlays.He had won this guitar in some kind of contest I remember distinctly it was back in the METAL GLORY days for me I was in and out of bands etc. I think it was somewhere in 1987?I recall the Steve Vai signed guitar well, it had this little weird symbol Steve drew on it and I thought it was the weirdest thing and wanted to ask Steve what it meant.Well here I am years later and now after coming to jemsite I have learned about just how famous these guitars are but here is the thing .. they were not all green ones perhaps you guys know this perhaps not?His(Tim is his name btw) is a DY "desert yellow" so for the record I posted here so you know where they are.This "Yellow Loch Ness" is located near Cincinnati, Ohio in a town called Hamilton once called "little chicago" you sorta have to live here to understand that one i guess .Sorry for my awful punctuation being almost 36 years old and not to mention an 80's musician puts me slightly over into the nearly burnt at times catagory ok maybe not.But I am unclear wether you guys had this information on the yellow guitars as well or were you just calling them green knowing good and well there was a few yellow ones in the bunch?

p.s I'm going over there tonight hopefully equiped with a digital camera standby for pics!!!!!!

There are no "limited edition" DY's, but there are plenty of signed ones. Steve has signed litterally thousands and thousands of guitars Just because he drew a couple hyroglyphs on it doesn't make it any more special. BTW, Lock Ness is the color green

Oh man I feel silly
Ok clear me up on this my friend used that same term you just used "limited Edition" why?What is that?And for the record there is no markings on this guitar or serials or anything no 777 stamped on neck or anything?Time said he won it in a contest so I thought it may have been just one in the bunch cuz they ran outta green ones ehhe I will say this it's real old and real cool regardless Hey shouldn't you be off to the post office or something?

LNG's were the limited edition, signed and numbered, 1 - 777. The DY has a neck plate and the serial # is on the plate

Well, you're lucky to just 'look silly'. You did the right thing by asking. I can't imagine how many people believe that crap and actually pay high prices!
