Re: Anyone see the JS Proto #1 on ebay?

It'll be one of the wood sampling guitars they used to test woods in [ironically] the JS6 prototyping. Joe said they were absolute **** and returned them all, evidently Lipe didn't figured actually making finished guitars was a priority. The angled jack on mine is hideous. But I suspect some chicanery and I wouldn't doubt those serial numbers were stamped after they were returned and [possibly] Lipe sold them privately. LACS would not have sold them IMO. And I'm thinking he stamped all the serial numbers to make them more "desirable"

Here's mine, 91 #1
