USA Custom "Silver Snake"? - ...why did I have to get marrie
Was in my favorite music store a few weeks ago and had the chance to pick up an "un-used", never owned '89 USA Custom for a very good price. It has the silvery/grayish snake skin pattern on front & back, and is silvery/gray on the sides, rosewood board with white shark tooth inlays, single stock Ibanez F-1 pup in the bridge position. Neck has some back bow (you would too after 13 years in the same position). Funny tho, I went to the Ibanezregister.com gallery and what they called the "silver snake" and the "gray snake" both look brown to me. Anyone seen this one before? If I wasn't in the middle of buying a used UV777BK at the time (which I got today), man I'd have snapped this thing up, and will next month if it's still there. It's funny that I've looked at it for years, but never bothered to play it, but this time I did and it almost killed me to walk out without it.
Did you ever just come so close to just saying "screw it, I'm getting it"? Man that GAS attack lasted 3 days.
