Not mine, and this is not a collector piece, but rare all the same. It's been re-wired (still has the rare cream MMK's in it though), logo missing, and some goober reshaped the headstock. Price is a bit lofty for its present shape, in my opinion. If someone is really jonesing for one of these, drop me a PM. Cheers, Mike.

That serial number is quite binary! (100th produced in November of 1980)

These Canadian Ash X260N models have a very unique tone and are a real pleasure to play. Light bright tone but with the coil taps/humbucker MMK 45 pup lots of tones and power to be had. :up:

I had a really nice one of those a while back that went to mortorman - hope he still has it - that was a dandy.

This one I was excited to see until I saw that fubar-ed headstock. What is it with that?
