    I was offered this from a friend of mine for a very good price. Washburn A20V.. And I have always wanted one since I saw Carlos from Quiet Riot playing one. But I just can't justify it right now. I have almost all but stopped playing.. Plus I have enough guitars as it is.. But I really like it.. It really resonates unplugged.. More than any of my Les Pauls..

    This isn't it but it is identical except the whammy is black..

    I've seen the see through wood version, which was dark brown wood.

    I passed, they were a heavy lump of metal. they're getting harder to find.
    they'll just sit in people's closets or basements.

    so, come on feel the noise!

    its guitars like this that bring you a pretty penny later cause everybody that had em trashed em and there are only stories about the few that are left somewhere unknown.
