Musical merit aside, I guess they are rare enough to warrant being noted, and I've never heard of them being made in that colour. Makes it look a lot more daring than most modern Gibsons -- could almost be a Bussmann special.

With the recently-discussed modification to a five-string fan-fret, this would be an ultra-cool instrument.

Oops sorry: I could have sworn I put the link (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370072210655) in my original message. Anyway, here it is for posterity.

Elderly currently has one of these, used, FS -- albeit, not a green one.

I converted my Dean version of this into a 9-string mandola with good success.

I don't get it - is it tuned like a guitar?

I kind of like the nice, kermity color though.
