VINNIE VINCENT Stage Used and Owned Jackson Randy Rhoades Guitar
With a signed letter of provenance from Vinnie Vincent

ulien's auction was kind enough to have Vinnie Vincent prepare and forward a letter of provenance and detailed account of the guitar you see here.
I now have a hand signed letter from Vinnie Vincent on his personal letterhead that will of course, be included with the guitar.

I have taken a picture of only part of page 1 and page 2 of the letter as you can see, so to protect the letter of provenance from being duplicated by any duplicitous individuals. Should you be interested in its content and gentlemanly in asking, I am happy to share its content with any prospective buyer. I will not entertain correspondence from anyone who has an agenda as it pertains to Vinnie Vincent and such. I am a serious collector (not a guitar dealer), a busy professional, and as my feedback (on eBAY, seller name: zakzanis) would attest, a kind and courteous Ebay member.

The primary and focal wording of Vinnie's letter, in his own words, and as quoted from the letter, is this:

"The four gold metal flake custom inlay whammy models Jackson sent to Vinnie were a tuning nightmare and problematic at first, so Vinnie asked Jackson to send him a number of non whammy models to get through the Creature tour while the bugs were begin worked out with the Floyd Rose whammy custom models. The white Jackson non tremolo model was one of the first "emergency" guitars sent by Jackson to Vinnie in 1982, as memory has it."

so.. what you see here is:


This was purchased direct from Julien's Auctions Music Icons Auction in May of 2015.
As per the Lot Item Description found on the flashcard in the pictures and in the auction book (that is unopened):

"A Vinnie Vincent stage used Jackson Randy Rhoades electric guitar. Shark fin shape in white finish, dot inlays. This guitar was among the many used this early in Kiss's Creatures of the Night tour in 1982 although it is unclear as to the number of performances. Vincent was waiting on his final Jackson Vinnie Vincent model guitars to be built and was encountering tuning problems with the guitars he had been loaned form Jackson that had whammy bars. The Jackson company sent this non-whammy model guitar for Vincent to use in the meantime. The guitar has the original strings used on the Creatures of the Night tour (NOTE: I believe these are in the Case; and I will need to confirm this, so no promise on the stings!!). Accompanied by a fitted hardshell case. A link to an online image of Vincent with this guitar in full KISS makeup is available upon request (NOTE: I received this picture and it is included here, but I do NOT believe the picture includes THIS actual guitar being held by Vincent; Julien's corrected this when it was pointed out to them just prior to auction bid time). 46 by 16 inches. PROVENANCE From the Collection of Vinnie Vincent"

As you can see the estimate final hammer price: $10,000 - $20,000

As you can see, I did my best to find as many pictures of Vincent with a White Jackson.. I'm not entirely sure I found a picture of him with the guitar, but from what I also learned, a lot of his guitars were sent back to the Jackson factory over the KISS years to be re-finished and messed with. I gather a guitar aficionado or KISS fanatic would be able to drum up something out of the archives. In any case, this guitar went straight to Julien's auctions from Vinnie Vincent's hands.

What can I say?
A Vinnie Vincent Owned Guitar Obviously NEVER Comes Up.
Its absolutely killer rare.
And if you think you will find another, best of luck....
(I happen to own Vinnie Vincent's other two original Gold Jackson guitars that are now hot pink and I believe the only other is with the Hard Rock)

Reasonable offers will be entertained but again, be gentlemanly about it.
