    Hans,
    You're a proto and the mold is long gone.

    an off white single with exposed poles would look SOOO good in that guitar, but I know you'd never change it... value... blah blah blah.... ;)

    I have a 305 prototype. Solid alder body. Push/pull tone pot to cut output, giving it both vintage vibe and modern vibe.

    Killer guitar!

    Hey now, I'm still able to sell from the current stash and use the cash-heesh to buy another one. Besides, I doubt Aldy's ever going to set that one free.

    I guess it makes sense that a museum piece is in the museum.

    As Carl Werkmeister once told me when I asked if I could buy his Santana: "Everything has it's price".

    But... officially... she is not for sale. :)
