I started playing in '92-93. My older cousin had a pink BC Rich warlock...that was the absolute coolest thing in the world to me. 80s glory!! I remember hanging out at his house and flipping through his guitar mags/catalogs and seeing the Ibanez universe/jem/rg series...the neon ones were my favorites. I dreamed of just playing one. Ownership was not even an option at that time.
This one has been at the pawn shop for a while. I got a crappy prs se single cut in a trade, fully intended on trading it away when I got it. Had about $200 in that one with a brand new hardshell case. Well...gave the pawn shop that prs and $250, kept the case for an esp strat I had picked up sans case recently...went home with pinky. Really have closer to $350-400 in it. Thing looks unplayed. No grime on the fretboard, not a single mark on any of the hardware...the headstock doesn't even have any of those surface scratches, just some light pick marks on the pickguard. I've bought brand new guitars off the shelf with more wear on them.
That same shop has a dual rectifier head that's been there for some time....just thinking out loud.
