VAI2KDNA #149 - Virtually New In Box HUSA Package, Deep, dark, moody swirl with a mature palette that was displayed with pride. The fretboard is also beautiful with red tones thru smooth deep chocolate. I found about 20 fine fingernail scratches in a small area center guard. Otherwise flawless, probable original strings, the original soot layer on the headstock partially cleaned from the top edge to begin the tuners, before it was shipped to me. I would always give the option of keeping that on as it was "original" and most opted for me to clean the headstocks. I like seeing the smoke layer as I regret cleaning all of my DNA's. In excellent condition original factory shipping box numbered to the guitar by Jim Donahue after inspection, with shipping label from Fred's Music addressed to me, I'd hate to say back when dealers would ship a guitar like a DNA without any padding or protection except the original shipping box, but since most dealers still do this today I wouldn't be making a point! HUSA shipped these in an additional form fit distributor shipping box but only to keep road wear off the new guitars box. Same practice is still in place today except the boxes need a void fill on one side. Probably the cause of the 1/2" long fog spot at the edge of the neck pocket and the 3/8" finish crack running from it ;/ This is one of the lost guitars, there were a few DNA's in the hundreds of guitars that never found their way onto the for sale page, or photoshopped into the gallery, I probably have the original pictures of it in a "folder of the unfinished" from the 2000-2005 era. I've got lots of folders unfinished. I have zero recollection of this guitar but I obviously bought it from Fred's and sold it to John Cowan, and it's in the picture of 29 DNA's here, the first guitar in the upper left hand corner. Ray bought it from John not too long after. It is nearly complete with it's crisp cert, Manuals, tool pack, sleeping bag, but no warranty card. In it's crisp HUSA case that has always been stored New in the box, the case combination set to the edition number, 149.**$8500**
