She's in pretty good shape, mostly complete, and the OHSC is a definite bonus!

The only complaint I have about this model is that the dot position markers, which are already small on the Spectrum series, are black instead of white as they are on the other models.

That makes it difficult to see against that shiny blue finish, especially if you're in a low light environment. The edge markers are in white though, so that helps a bit.

Nice that the seller references our forum. (I edited the Wiki entry link information a few years ago to have it point to our website and forum. Did not change the main content though. I wonder who wrote that originally, Neil maybe?)

I don't know who the author was; perhaps even David Blair?!

I love everything about this guitar but cannot bring myself to bid - I have 20+ that I don't play now without adding another!! There's an APII XX in blueburst in NZ at the moment, too, that I covet....

... but no; I shan't be bidding. Sad

Nope! Can't do it. If either one needed major work then maybe, but just to say I own one isn't a good enough reason.

You'd likely have to do a pup transplant (UBC)...

Anything stirring?

Unfortunately, no. I just cannot bring myself to do it.....


.... but a nice Tonerider Rocksong at the bridge would do the trick....
