    1989 Navigator Blister Top

    Really nice older Navigator showed up today. Love the blistered maple top on it. Has a really nice one piece mahogany back, headstock has no wings, MOP markers, nitro finish. Plays and sounds fantastic, will be getting plenty of my attention. Props to @Udonitron for helping me date it.

    1980 Navigator LPS-200?

    Picked up a really nice early Navigator with pots dated to second week of Oct 1979, so I'm assuming it was made in 1980. Info is thin on these, the 1980 catalog has LPS-90, 100, 120, 150 and 200. No way to be sure of the model, but this one was has some great specs: Solid flame top, DiMarzio...

    NGD '80 Greco EGF-1200

    This is an overdue NGD, but there's a bit of a story Greco fans will enjoy. I got this guitar back in October and was really surprised just how nice its condition was when it arrived. Straight away I dropped it off at a local luthier for a level, crown and polish of the frets. Where I live is...
