Explorer Custom Graphic - any ideas? ever seen one?

This was sent to me recently the note that came with it said it was a WRBM3 looks like an explorer shape apperntly it was a 'production' model? (not sure on that) of around 10 years ago. (not in any of my catalogues). *May have been a Jap only job. is it a Reb Beach model as the number would donate? great looking guitar would be very interested in any information anyone has.

cheers

I remember seeing pics of Reb with that guitar back when Winger became "popular" I guess you can say. I may be wrong, but my guess is it was made just for Reb. I know I have a GFTPM from back in the day buried in a filing cabinet that has a pic of him with that guitar.

It was a home market model. There's a dealer over in asia somewhere still has a new one for sale, can't remember who now. I think it was $1100.

I think Rich is right about the Blue Horizon site, and I think Kevan has a link to it.

I could be wrong

That's one of the most disgusting body shapes I've ever seen.

I've played these guitars before and they play excellently! Love the neck, and the EMGs....most ibanez guitar can't take emgs, they sound really bad in them, but this on..wow! And it's got an edge trem in it, the most flutter I've experienced before. There's even an autograph from Reb on the back plate. I believe the fingerboard is ebony.

Nice guitar, dunno about you guys but I love the shape, reminds me of the jackson kelly!
