    Glad it went to a player who will hopefully continue the legend of this guitar playing it on recordings or even an appearance on stage.

    Although, I would love to see it return to it's roots and playing the blues.

    One can only hope that the future of this exquisite instrument is assured for the foreseeable future, in the hands of a musician of some standing. Bravo. :thumb:

    Congratulations to everyone (whomever you may be) concerned in bringing Greeny back to making music. You have done very very well indeed...:applause:

    Long live Greeny!!!

    Great news. I'm glad this spells the end of a "shady period" in the life of this amazing piece of musical history.

    I was never a Metallica fan but I respect Kirk Hammet and know of his love for vintage guitars.

    Excellent result.

    :)

    What difference does it make which guitar you use?

    Kirk first used it last Tuesday in Prague in front of 40,000 people for their version of 'Whiskey In The Jar' which was very fitting.
