Are there more pictures from this shot? I like the lighting here. And what's the story? I thought a certain Kirk H. owns it? :hyper:

Frank is Kirk or Kirk is Frank? ;)

I'd seriously pay just to strum an open G chord on that one.....
Yeah, everyone knows Kirk owns "Greenie" now so...........?? :)

Greenie, Skinner and the Beast would be my dream Originals to play.

Sorry for the late response, guys. This is the first time all day I've been on the computer.

The guitar I posted yesterday does, in fact, belong to me.

However, it is actually an '01 R8 that Dave Johnson performed his magic on back in 2009, to very closely replicate Greenie (before the CCs were introduced). It was commissioned by Mark Bishop, from Mark's Guitar Loft. Mark also did some work on the guitar, aging some of the parts. And then after I bought it from him, I did some additional work to it to get some of the parts even closer in appearance to the original. I also put together the display shown in the photos shown previously, trying to make them look identical to the display used for the original Greenie when it made some appearances at a few guitar shows back around '08/'09. Here are the photos of the guitar taken by Mark for his website back in '09:
