just a couple minor dings here and there, but overall in great shape. this one has a darker finish than my other one. no serial number. everything is original except the tuners, which have been changed to Ibanez locking tuners (nice!) original Vantage case too.

"Old Surfer Dude"? Only in California... :D

These look very dull but I expect the playability is anything but.
Nice score Mike.

I've the same Guitar. Mine looks really ugly, but hte Sound is ingredible! The best Guitar for Hard Rock and Metal. Not well for Jazz and Blues. The Ghost is great to Play. Best made of Matsumoku. I'll rebuild it in the next Month.

Have fun with it!
