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).
