Thread: Ngd - x79

    Ngd - x79

    OK, let's see if this one is a refin! LOL

    This showed up on Reverb last week from Sam Ash of all places. It's almost mint. There's a tiny ding on one of the points on the headstock and one of the rollers on the bridge has been replaced which I found odd because it looks otherwise unplayed.

    Finding an X79 in this condition was rough. I almost ended paying hundreds more for a purple one in similar condition but the guy backed out at the last minute because he couldn't part with it.

    I imagine that this is what the green one in this thread originally looked like though they have different headstocks so maybe the finish is different. Dunno.




    Even the case is freaking mint:

    That looks like the color of my Detonator. Is it metallic?

    Seriously! Especially since I think the X79s are some of the most beat-up guitars I see. My red X79-3 has major chunks missing on it.

    GAD, I mightl take that X-79 if you decide to part with it. Let me know if the time comes.
