NGD...Zion Radicaster

Haven't done a NGD thread in awhile, but thought this one couldn't go by without one. This here is late 80's/early 90's Zion Radicaster. The finish is apparently called Technofrost....a variant of the Metalmarble finishes the did on alot of these.

I love these guitars, if memory serves correct, this is the 6th Radicaster I've owned....7th Zion overall. True superstrats.......more so than say an Ibby RG or anything Charvel/Jackson or ESP, as these retain alot of the feel and characteristics of Fender Strat while still being great shred/heavy rock guitars.

Stunning!! That is hands down the best looking Radicaster I've seen.

I took in a late 80's Radicaster last year with the blue marble/magenta burst (bowling ball) finish which is a great looking guitar but your's looks much better. They are damn good guitars as well.

Thanks man, I saw the Zion you got........love it, I had a great one that looked exactly like it. Actually, I was wondering if it could be my old one.

Hey, no worries. Could be your old guitar, who knows?? I'll fire up pics if you wish??? Your Zion will still remain#1. Easily the best looking Radicaster ever. How did you come by that??

Cool, I have all my guitar pics, so I'll look for the SN#. I got this new one off the auction site that shall not be named. Awesome price too........$630 shipped!!

I wont be flipping it, so I guess there's no strategic disadvantage in divulging the actual cost. It's a whole lot of guitar for the money, for sure.

The serial number on the one I took in was '8'. That's it...just 8. You got that one at a great price, $630 is a steal.
