Neil Finn, one of the greatest songwriters of the past three decades or so. More commonly seen with his now famous red Gretsch Jet Firebird.
"I don't know why we asked him to join the band 'cause the rest of us don't like country music all that much; we just like Graham Lee."

Yep, he played a 2000 normally when he was first in Split Enz. The one in that photo looks like a 175 though...

Doesn't look like himself in that pic... the firebird is the guitar I associate him with.

He was quite young when he joined Split Enz if I'm not mistaken. He also looked a LOT like Joffrey from GoT.

And related to this thread, I FINALLY GOT ONE. YAY.

I don't think either John or Johnny will influence the used guitar market very much these days. I love them both but neither are that high-profile lately.

GOOD. Hopefully they stay relatively cheap so I can accumulate more of them....
