    In a word...DAYUM!

    And in other words, this is why you don't just "play the shit out of it" and not worry about whether or not it gets dinged or scratched up. -Rod-

    The first thought that popped in my mind when I saw the pics was "how much home-equity do I really need?"

    Beautiful guitar, but I think I should leave now...;)

    The adjustment screws face the neck on ALL ABR-1 bridges, vintage and reissues, unless you put it on backwards. :cool:

    That's torn it. I was just about to buy a used Epi 56 Gold Top but having seen what the real thing looks like, now I don't want it anymore.

    Maybe I'm not hardcore enough for a real 56, but I don't fancy 10 years of walking to work.

    Just imagine the cost of resoling shoes.

    You can't deny that it's an exqusite example of an awesome guitar, but how the hell has it STAYED that way. Has it even BEEN played to its full potential. Clips needed.

    Man, I would buy that in a New York minute if I had the money. If I gave you a hug and promised to love you forever, can I have it?
