Crazy "Flying A"

Post by diablo272 » Wed Apr 30, 2008 9:54 am

Flying A

This guy has written a crazy description of a crazy guitar. Some excerpts:

"It looks like a flying V, but it's really a flying A!" - I'm glad you've made that clear!

"This particular Flying A is a one of a kind ESP custom shop that was most likely handmade." - I don't could have been made on an assembly line in Korea.

"There are 21/22 frets" - You mean I can choose?

"This doesn't affect playability at all and it's not ever going to totally strip and wear off or anything either." - That's right, the paint won't EVER come off, EVER.

"It has a Seymour Duncan humbucker in the bridge position AND a Fernandes sustainer single coil in the neck" - That's right, it has BOTH!

"I will do my best packaging and boxing job on this baby since I know how rare it is." - So what kind of a packaging job do you do on your other, less rare guitars?

What a strange looking guitar. Has anyone ever seen another like it?

:lol: Creative description I guess.
Certainly not uncommon, the shape. The glitzy shit? Well, that's uncommon, thankfully!

the sparkles and colour remind me of that contact paper you have on your books back in primary school to stop them from getting dirty etc. That colour and effect was all the rage in the early 90's where i went.

The shape carved out of the V looks like an ass.

More like a different body part that only certain creatures have.

I wonder if the seller did any gigs with that thing in Oklahoma in the 6-7 years they owned it. But considering they are confused about the number of frets I think probably not.

See other thread on Alfee related guitars and the sparkles and other crazy stuff is not as surprising as the regularity of these things getting listed on ebay. Buyers remorse in the worst way?

It is not a one of a kind.
But this is a limited Takamizawa's model.

That finish is just terrible. There was a dude on this forum (suguzio??) that contacted his guitar with some silver glitter stuff and that looked pretty cool, but thats just ick!
