FACTORY SILVER XL
Exclusively from your local Guitar Center
These silver L's were a specialty item requisitioned for the Guitar Center chain. Word has it they were part of a chain-wide contest/giveaway. Each store received one XL. This count only numbered 30 - obviously before the days when they were opening up on every corner.
The color is a "traditional" metallic silver paint. Underneath these instruments were a standard black gel coat composition. The serial numbers are unique too, with the letters G.C. (obviously for Guitar Center) followed underneath by the instrument number (XX OF 30).
