old applehorn aurora or iris violet???

Post by jonaweinhofen » Mon Jan 03, 2011 12:57 am

found this on a swedish ebay type site. apparently its an old applehorn aurora. looks like iris violet finish and apparently has IA's signature on the back of the headstock (not sure if its printed or he just signed the guitar)



here is the translation

Halloj! This is an ad interest to see what someone might offer
for this beauty? Can also think of selling it but change at any time.

It's a Caparison Apple Horn Aurora. Mattias IA Eklundh's elderly
signature model fixed omlackad and with IA's autograph on the back of the head. The
only visible dangen sits on the head and the caparisonägare any time
agree with me that it's easy to hit in the head so that a small
splinter of wood is lost. But it will not be on.
The value of this new gem was around 25,000. It is produced not
longer and it was only 100-150 copies of it.
I have treated it as my baby since I bought it. Band rods and bridge is in mint condition. No rust.
A slightly worn, original hard case, tremolo arm and the tool to adjust the neck resulting in

Trades I would be interested in are:

ESP Eclipse (in good condition)
Gibson Les Paul Standard / custom / classic

Or another quality guitar with a fixed bridge. Please come with suggestions!
I check emails daily, but can also be reached by phone! Contact us about this
sounds interesting!

Price: 11 000 (but change at any time against any of these guitars as I say!)

More photos can be emailed if interested!

works out to be about 1600 bucks, pretty decent.

:shock: :shock: :shock: FUCK... I just had to saving up to go to Finland in the summer... Colors like these prove to me that the older models were the best looking. The Iceberg, Iris Violet, and this are drop dead gorgeous!

After being to Freak Guitar Camp I have seen a lot of guitars signed by Ia on the back of the head and I must say that it really looks like crap. This is probably the case with this guitar too, since he doesn't show any photos of this. :)

That one looks absolutely awful! Can't grasp the fact that someone would like to ruin a perfectly nice Apple Horn Aurora in that tasteless way! Seen this for sale for years, and it saddens me every time I have to see it :)
