Description:   I bought this guitar for $75 sometime in 1989 from a guy I went to college with. He had it in his barn in a rural area of Arkansas. He had gotten the guitar when he was in the Navy in CA. It was orinally bought in 1979 by a girl for her boyfriend who played in a band out in CA. He was apparently murdered and somehow along the way the guitar was smashed. The girl died somehow and the family gave it to my friend. When I got it, the body was in 3 pieces, the finish was stripped off the Koa, the brass nut and the frets were all oxidized and green, and the fret board was loose. I polished the green off the nut and the frets, glued the fret board back to the aluminum neck, and screwed the body back together. The wood piece between the pickups is missing, along with the pick guard and one tone knob. The guitar looks beat up and worn, but considering it's history I think it's fitting. It's a great playing guitar and even though it's beat up, I think it looks cool. I will get a pic made and post it...I just found this site.
