A few that we're missing...

Post by Stereordinary » Sat Feb 03, 2007 9:27 am

I was just thinking about this last nite, and then the Antigua thread pushed me over the edge.

Between the lot of us we have a ton of offsets in a ton of colors, ranging from all-original to heavily modified.  But, there's still some that we're missing.  What I mean is that nobody here has one.  If we ever had a convention of our own, it would still be a little incomplete.  Even with Zhivago's '61s, Justin and Jay's new XIIs, Alfred's VIs and so many other beautiful guitars to name we'd only have three-quarters of a convention.

I'll start the list:

A Jaguar in Burgundy Mist Metallic with matching headstock.

A Black Starcaster.

A an Antigua offset-anything.

A Marlin-Burst Jazzmaster.

A Shoreline Gold Bass VI (sorry Alfred).
  :P

I'm sure there's many others that we could think of.  Let the fun begin, and the GAS explode!

You can cross off the black starcaster. Michael (mjet2453678915) has one.

What about this potentially 'yummy' one - a Fender Electric XII in Burgundy Mist Metallic with matching headstock & tortoise scratchplate.
Has anyone ever seen one?
