NGD Jaguar

Well I've been holed up for a few years with my non reverse firebird, but I saw this a few weeks ago and couldn't resist; 1966 IBM jag. Immaculate in all sorts of ways. No case or trem or mute (may or may not try to get originals at some point) but otherwise great. Light and resonant, and just sexy as.
**sigh**

Sooner or later I'm going to have to take a photo of my Sonic Blue AV65 Jag, daphne blue JM, frost blue Firebird and this one together. I just can't seem to resist baby blue guitars.

nice
Buying another guitar will not make me a better guitar player. I was wrong; I bought another guitar and now I'm boss.

That is a real beauty! Certainly not the most common of colors for the period.

Holy shit. Having a hard time compartmentalizing the surge of warmth and joy that happened when I looked.

Wow, just wow. I would love to see the family.

:?

Wow!
One of my absolute favorite combinations! IBM, Matching Headstock and Block Inlays... checking all the boxes! :whistle:
Was it the one from Reverb? If only these were a bit more common/available in Europe!

Thanks guys! It was on reverb, from Cologne. Thought it might be an idea to import it before our idiot leaders pull the drawbridge up. It might need a refret, but apart from that it plays beautifully.

Great one! I even think we discussed that guitar here on OSG when it once was on sale locally in Germany, appx. 2 years ago, but I could be wrong. I will PM you the link to the old thread.

Wow. That's a beauty. I may not have been paying too much attention, but that fade pattern is not something I've often seen. Congratulations.
