Just picked this up from Daves guitar shop. All comments welcome. I know its not everyones cup of tea. I love Customs.....but do not like Gold hardware. I played one with a 70's van custom paint job that just didnt do it for me. I loved the guitar though. This one I thought was def. cool. I love everything about Japanese culture.....loved this skyline look on the black custom theme from the custom shop. It was reduced to a price less then a reg. USA custom.

From Daves: ustom Shop, Glossy finish, 1 11/16th” nut width, The neck thickness is .84″ at the first and .99″ at the 12th frets, 8.4 pounds, With the certificate and Lifton hardshell case, Excellent,

I was all over it. The more I look at it the more I dig it......... :love:

I think it is REALLY cool! Congratulations! I'm sure you had to pay a pretty penny for that one. I saw the L.A. skyline version and it wasn't cheap!

Oddly enough, the first thing I thought of was Miami Vice. Don’t know why. I do like it, though.

Where’s Mal?

I dislike paintings on guitar tops... except this one is strangely very attractive! It really works. I think having the sky doing its own kind of burst is clever and good-looking; it's like having a burst on one half, and a black beauty on the other. Really nice! ...except for the speed knobs, which suck IMO.
