NGD - UVMC77 (Heavy Mustard content)

Picked this one up a few weeks ago…. Not the worst swirl I've seen on a MKR and I love that it was one of the yellowest ones you could find. Got it at a great price and yeah…. I couldn't resist haha!

Unfortunately once I received the guitar there was a crack in the lower horn of the body. Looked like just a surface crack typical on these however it was enough for me to send it back to the original owner. There were also a couple of neck pocket cracks. I kind of wanted this as a 'Mint' example, oh well….. Nice to own a MKR for a week, it played quite well but nothing like my UVBK7. Money is refunded so all good!!

Enjoy the pics!!

Nice, man! While I've never been a terribly big fan of the MKR swirls, I will say that the paint quality on them is miles above that of the original ATD's. A lot of the original ATD's look pretty rough with the way the pink has faded on them.

Ouch, TC. I returned a used '98 7VWh for being a little too used. Had it for about 2 weeks. Also thought I paid too much, so that did not help. Ended up getting a new one about a year later. Hope you find another too!

I sold that one 15 years ago. The finish crack happened during shipping to me. Was a shame.

I find amazing how Rich reminds his guitars and the stories about them.
Like a father who meets a son who he haven't seen for a long time.
