Probably as good as it gets.Extremely rare as you know. It is showcase museum quality for sure. When moving and packing it picked up a tiny scratch on the back. Please view pics.This modelcame in and out in 1983.Rarest color,rarest version of the 3.If you notice checking sites,They show you the other 2 but nobody has a pic of this one.The real deal gold elite.Not walnut,not the chrome one,The gold elite in that off white cream color. Notice the gold trimmings and the correct wammy bar as they are like jewelry with no pitting. Solid maple neck gleaming,and same strap all these years.Check out the amazing all gold embellishments and the custom gold pearlized tuners.Simply a beauty.Serious inquires Only please.Try to find another at any price.I am including(For FREE) the old case I had which is similar to the original but it’s black. The original was brown. I am also including 2 extra original knobs in case you loose or break one. I paid over $100 when I found them because you never see them. The knobs may be rarer than the Elite guitars. They are worth good money and they are a gift to the buyer.
I posted a new and final price
I’m moving and this is my final or it’s going with me.
Since I originally posted this I moved due to finances. I added more and I’m lowering the price a little as money is an issue for me
Thank for looking and please ask questions. I gave the best description possible. View the pics as that is the one your getting and I’m going by the pics.No returns. By the way,I forgot to mention,Everything is working perfect and I added the internal pics so you can view the original electronics that they later made into Eric Clapton’s famous Strat (Blackie) with the mid boost.
