NGD-1988 540SHH DY
Well I was very pleased to get a new to me Ibby today, but now Im in a quandry.
This is an 88 Sabre, all original (even still has the backstop) in Desert Yellow. I bought this guitar to use its parts for another build. But this thing is MINT. Just some super minor wear on the Low E Saddle, Couple of pits in the cosmo trem base. Super minor scratch on the edge of the headstock. No real dings, chips, or anything else. The DY is super brilliant, if there is any fading it is almost to hard to be seen by the eye.
Now even though they are great Im not a S guy, I like my 540p's and RG's. Soooooo, do I still rip it down, keep it whole for my collection, or sell it to someone jonesing for a first year DY saber.
I am a believer in keeping guitars as they come for the most part. The only reason I do project guitars is if the original body is beat up or neck got broken, yada yada.
