Question for anyone at the LACS (Mr. Hosono?)

I've got my eye on a used LACS guitar and was wondering if anyone at the LACS had any information on it. The serial number is LA112490 and is singed by Mace Bailey on the back of the headstock. The body is a strat-like shape (almost lookst like an S series but twice as thick) and is red with a flame maple top and white HSS pickups. The neck is solid rosewood!

Thanks,

Allen

Re: Question for anyone at the LACS (Mr. Hosono?)

Someone else bought it the day I was going to finally pull the trigger on it

Here are the pics the guy at GC took (they're kinda blurry):

I had tried to put it on hold with money down but got a BS line about the policy having changed on used gear and that they can't put used gear on layaway anymore (even though another store would still do it for me).

*sigh*

It's looked like this guitar was made by Mace. I think he made this guitar for his own use, not for some artist. Mike and Mace made some strange guitars before my time.

Thank you so much for the personal reply! Sadly, I missed out on the guitar at the last minute

Re: Question for anyone at the LACS (Mr. Hosono?)

that's a gorgeous guitar. Wonder why Mace got rid of it if he made it for his own personal use?

Not sure. It might be on the block as I've gotten too used to JEMs.
