    Well....

    Granted it's difficult to contemplate ever calling a Toyota Prius Hybrid a thing of beauty.

    Birth year strat for you? That would be icing on the mojo laden, naturally aged vintage aesthetic, complementary coloured, sweet looking and hopefully just as sweet singing cake.

    That's just stunning - I hope you're going to be able to buy it. Love the mirror image LPB paint spots on the neck heel and pocket.

    Yes, I know, it's completely original and that's what I like. When everything falls in to place... untouched solder joints, correct marks, the paint transfer between body and neck... It's missing the original case which is a shame.

    An absolute gem!! Yes, a new Prius price would be about right. It is indeed unfortunate about the missing case - that would be a good couple of G's itself.

    How come some guitars just look so right?
    One look and you say to yourself "if that's not the real deal, I'll eat my shorts"!
