    I think that might be the "left out in the acid rain burst" model. I still don't get why folks pay extra for somebody to beat their guitar up and leave it for dead! :hmm:

    What the.......ok....no defending that thing. That is absolutely ridiculous. From the aging, to the location of said aging, to the stupid color. Wow.

    I thought this was someone's god awful restoration of an original at first and thought it was a good deal. $9K for (what someone above pointed out) an iguana burst.

    The Gecko burst at least has a sort of theme going. The wear on the golden puke burst is all wrong. If it was played that much were is the wear around the knobs? So many problems.

    It looks better than ever. Currently, it has that distinct 1959 Eric Clapton is a disappointment-burst vibe.
