Unicorn NGD...Jem DNA!!!

I've been trying to find one of these on and off since like...2012 or 2013 and could never find one in Canada. Once the new CITES regulations came into effect in early 2017 I gave up entirely and completely forgot about scoring one of these...

Then, about a week ago, one of my friends that I've bought and sold some gear with messaged me saying he saw one pop up on a local classifieds, so I reached out to the guy and I ended up buying the guitar later that day!

For those that don't know, these are swirled with some of Steve Vai's actual blood, which is...interesting to say the least. 0_0

The guitar plays extremely well and sounds awesome too, although to be honest I prefer my beat to **** mutt Jem BFP but this DNA isn't really for playing so NBD.

Anyways, pics!

Re: Unicorn NGD...Jem DNA!!!

I bid something like $3750 on a DNA on evilBay... IIRC, I was high bidder at close but didn't break the reserve.

That one's a pretty sweet swirl... congrats!

Re: Unicorn NGD...Jem DNA!!!

Congrats with an iconic guitar! I remember when these came out and i couldn't afford one. The prices of these collectables sure have gone up the last 10 years.

Re: Unicorn NGD...Jem DNA!!!

Congrats ! This is a nice swirl. I am sure, the DNA will be a collectible. She has outstanding features with this blood/DNA concept and the swirl of ATD. So the problem is: play or not to play, that is the question. She's a cool player with such a thin neck, playability is a dream. I played mine seldom, because i had fear to cause any damage.
Cheers !

Re: Unicorn NGD...Jem DNA!!!

Yeah I'm actually in that boat. Played it once and it was awesome, especially since I've been playing my single coil equipped Tesla for the last year. I really want a beat up swirl now that I won't feel bad about playing but ughhhh. Who knows lol.

Congrats! Very cool guitar. You need to find some powder cosmo strap pins for it.
