    That is just stupid CLEAN ! Not much flame, but WOW :jam:

    The name should be able to come off.
    Bet Dave Johnson could take it off . :naughty:
    Maybe not. It's a glued on 3D cut out . :(
    Yeah, Dave could make it look right ! :dude:

    The low E and A strings are wound the wrong way on the peg shafts !
    $20k off for that ! At least ! :)

    It's better to leave that on. If the glue didn't bugger the finish, the fading around the name would still make it look stupid.

    I think it looks kinda cool, and it certainly adds to the story factor!

    Greg~ Have you heard of any Great repros coming out of Sweden ?

    A good buddy of mine from Buffalo NY, ( Sold a lot of Bursts ,You probably know who I'm talking about ) mentioned that one recently entered the market as a real burst.

    We were discussing this guitar and he had a question as to why such a
    fine example as this guitar & at a good price, hadn't been picked up by Dirk & Perry already.

    What's your thoughts ?
