My new Chromy Toy! - Yes....it was the deal of the century!

Well...I got it. *My shiny new JS10th has arrived, and I'm definitely impressed. *It was described as being "mint" and its probably more like mint minus. *NOT dead mint, but...VERY nice. *There is some VERY faint swirling from polishing and what may be some faint pick marks on the front, along with a couple of faint marks on the back. *Aside from the usual factory bubbling, etc., it's VERY clean! *I definitely can't complain. *The case and all goodies are in present and accounted for as well: strap, cable, warranty, owner's manual, etc. *Overall, probably a 9/10. *Not sure if I'm going to keep it though. *It's nice enough that I'd feel bad gigging with it. *I think it'll probably have to go to make room for some more practical gigging guitars

Exactly as Rich said...it bears a striking resemblance to a $2250-$2400 Chromeboy. * *It's just like any JS, but much shinier. *I'll try to get some pics up though if you really want some.

Here's a front pic- It's kinda linty-had some fuzz from the polishing cloth on it.

I would love to keep it, but...I've already got #008 that's dead mint. *I was kinda hoping that the one I just bought would have a bit more play wear on it-then I could use it. *But, it's in really nice shape, so I really can't justify having two killer guitars that I can't play! *It's hard enough leaving one alone...it'd be torture to have two that have the "look but don't touch for fear of scratching" rule *
