Congratulations on a GREAT acquisition, John. This guitar is poetry. Enjoy!

Thanks. This one was never posted to the in stock.
Yesterday in his live stream, Jeff said that this one and a few others would be going into the in stock.
And while he would not offer them at the run pricing, he said that he would split the difference for anyone who called in before the end of the day.
So I still got a good deal.

That is definitely one of my favorite Vanquish guitars I've seen ever. It reminds me of a banana B-B-Bat. Remember those?

Those old enough to remember the first round of headless Steinbergers and Kramers will know what I'm talking about.

And I could see Greg Emm loving that, it matches the general banana/chocolate colors of his Avatar.

Congrats on another great score JCG. That's a sweet stratty type guitar.

I've been trying to get a handle on the color. It's supposed to be a new color, but i can't quite see what makes it unique.

I asked Jeff to describe how it differs on a Q&A, and he basically said, "oh, it's different. Totally different. Not the same at all."... and that was it. Ha! I can find photos of their past yellows that look exactly like it, mostly like ElfDude's C66's non-deep flamed yellow.

Sometimes I have no idea what jeff is talking about with some of these newer finishes.
The photos don't do them justice.

This looks like, uhhh, trans yellow?

Regardless though, it's really a kickass guitar!
Congrats.

Doesn't look all THAT different from a trans sorta vintage yellow, no?
