I bought this guitar almost 3 weeks ago and finally got around to doing an NGD. It's a 1997 J-Custom s3040bs and came with the original case bearing the same Reg. number as on the headstock. It was bought in Dublin Ireland in 1997 and I bought it from the original owner. There is a little tarnish on the pearl gold hardware but that is to be expected. Everything is stock and it is really nice to play and sounds great through my Mesa dual rectifier. Hope you guys like the photos. Thomas C.
