Just saw this $3,475.00

"About this NEW #6 Slime Rebel USA custom idol:  The short story on this guitar is that during the years Nick Catanese was a signature artist with Washburn guitars, Nick worked with BSG's Eric McKenna on many custom runs of Nick's signature guitar.  Both on the import and USA custom side.

This run was the 'Slime Green Rebel."  Expertly done by Washburn's paint guru, Chewy.

There was 7 pieces made with Chrome Hardware and 7 made with Black hardware.

This is #6 of 7 with Chrome Hardware.

The guitar starts with standard NC70 specs.  Then Chewy stained the maple top Slime Green. Then it was masked off and painted black, leaving a reveal which formed the Stars & Bars of the Rebel flag.  Just AMAZING work - and in person, the green flame just jumps off the guitar!

The ebony fingerboard has star inlay and Nick's ExTx on the 12th fret.

The guitar is Brand New - Factory Case - Full Warranty.  This #6 guitar was used in various BSG Video filmings in 2006 and 2007 and lightly played in house at BSG by Nick Catanese and Freddy Kowalo.  There is some very, very light pick marks on the top and some very light marks on the lacquer on the back.  They can be easily buffed out if the buyer chooses to do so. Nothing 'grooved' into the finish - nothing like that.   Other than these light lacquer marks - the guitar is flawless. 

Of course there is a set of Zakk Wylde EMG pickup set installed, TonePros bridge, Grover Tuners ... and did we mention the Headstock received the same treatment as the Body?  Chewy is AMAZING.  His work is second to noone.

BSG has just a handful of these left in stock.  Brand New - unplayed. "
