This is a long shot, but I'll give it a try. The ONLY guitar I'm interested in would be a Vintage 55-60 Les Paul Special in T.V. yellow. I MIGHT consider an outright purchase on this if I can get a line on what I'm looking for. Call me if you have what I'm looking for, or to inquire if I have a line on one and you are interested in a purchase on this. ****NOTE**** I am officially posting this as a FT only, because the only way I'd sell it is if I had a line on a Vintage Special, and that would dictate what I need out of this outright. Again, feel free to call me from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. E.T. 7 days. 810-923-8297 If I can't pull this off by Christmas, I'm just going to keep the Slash.....it is a monster in it's own right! I don't know the exact weight, I'll say 9 lbs. to be safe. Neck is fantastic!!! NOT super fat, but a nice handful.
