Just come back from helping a friend clear out some gear that was in his Lock-up and found an old Guitar that I forgot I'd bought years ago!!!
It's a Yamaha RGX 211 from the late 80's!!

Well, I cleaned the pots, plugged it in and it plays quite well!!! It's still got the same strings on from when it got packed away so they must be about 15-20 years old!!!! Oh, and I took that sticker off it too!!

I did use it at home for a while! Mind you, back then I must have had about 25-30 Guitars!!!
blink.gif
I bought it as a kind of 'Back up' Guitar for when we were touring!
It just got packed away with a lot of our other gear and I kinda forgot about it until I found it today!!! Now it's back home where it belongs!!!

Nice find SJ smile.gif .

Saddest thing for me with building a new house is that I know there's nothing in the attic sad.gif . There's not even an attic ohmy.gif .

I did lend my best friend an Ibanez about 25 years ago though. One day I may ask for it back but there's no rush wink.gif .

I'm surprised how well it's survived! The paint has aged and there's a big chip on the front edge of the lower horn but apart from that it's really quite OK!!!
I see what you mean about the Caparison, although I don't think this is quite in THAT league!!! tongue.gif tongue.gif

Sorry, I can't remember anything I read in this thread past 25-30 guitars. That's awesome and makes me feel that I'm not alone in the world!

Cool find man!

Thanks!!!
I used to have a mini-sponsorship/endorsement deal with a local Music Store so I obviously abused the arrangement and had as big a collection as I could!!!! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
At one time I had 19 Dean Z Super Strats in varying colours!
