Talking New guitar day - 1990 DY

Just sharing a new friend, picked up a '90 DY on the bay. Was listed as in player condition, however this is in really decent shape considering and mostly needs cleaning. The neck is real dirty, the expected NJFC, and one chip on the top horn. Other than that there are not many scratches and despite stings that may require a tetanus shot after playing, it sounds great. Neck is in really good shape and has medium fretware. No buzzing or bad spots on the neck. Can't wait to clean it up! Some pics of course.

Re: New guitar day - 1990 DY

Thanks all! I went a bit crazy this year and picked up an '88 SK too. Been saving for a while, waited almost 20 years for these.
The DY was $1,600. not too bad considering some other prices I have seen.

An SK!!!

I love them! I think I'm going to get one of them as my 1st JEM. Or a DY but I already have a 20thRG in DY so i might leave that for a while!

Re: New guitar day - 1990 DY

Yes it does. Most of the SK's i've seen are pretty faded or dull. That one pops really nicely. Good score. I hope to have the "big 3" of SK, DY and LNG some day. By the time i'm ready to get one they'll probably be 10K a piece.

How 'bout some more pics of the SK and a family shot!
