Updated pictures of V86 one of only 4 solid top 1958 5/8 scale 325's in circulation

I'd say 5 but V85 is apparently not in circulation..

Hope you enjoy

I believe he said it was refinished due to a paint problem, John. It is the same guitar though..

Thanks! I did not know that it changed hands / was refinished. It looks really sharp in natural.

Absolutely fantastic Zak, thanks for sharing.

I'm usually a sucker for Fireglo (of any type) and while I believe V86 was originally FG, it looks so nice in natural. :shock:

I Think he wanted 25 grand for that one. I bought this much cheaper , although it only has two pickups
