There can't be many more beautiful than that. I think it's an example where the cherry sunburst color really looks great because it's faded just a bit from full strength.

Its a beauty.

The reason I put it away is that the tuners are so crappy (worn out) and some previous owner put ugly p.u rings on it. Also the tail piece is changed.
But she sings well!

Its almost a 1-piece body. There is a 4-5mm thick stripe in the bottom

And it doesn't have braz board

My friend made me take a "sleezy" pic today. Normally not too fond of taking these kind of pics

However: from left: 850, 1000, 1200, 1800.

Note that all of them have braz boards apart from the 1200.
The 850 has brazboard but poly finish

Damn....must be nice LOL. Hope you do not mind, I took the photo and made a few adjustments on it so it brings out the color and detail a bit. The other one I just added some "artistic flair" to it

Too much contrast for my fragile eyes.

Lucky you I didn't sell the pic to Universal, Disney or another nazi company

Oh well....You made the 850 into a tobacco burst

HAHA the contrast shows off the figuring in the tops, thus why I did it

A little more mellow...what camera are you using man?

From these 4 I think I would only sell the 1200 and the 1800.
The 1200 is so beautiful but I cannot stand the fact that it doesn't have braz board. The 1800 is such a great guitar. sounds like a summer breeze and feels like the hands of a hot gal So she deserves to be played more and I can't offer that cause I am not a LP player (Strat. SG, Jaguar and Jazzmaster only).

how do you know for sure its not braz?

since in a previous thread we pretty much came to the conclusion that you cannot always tell by looking, and furthermore its pretty well documented that 1200 are all braz...
