    2000 Langcaster Custom Natural Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial # L59-L0.
    An ultra-rare custom limited edition guitar made by Luthier Joh Lang from New Zealand, of Langcaster Guitars, who produced approximately 50 of such guitars beginning in early 2000. This guitar was produced in 2000 making it one of the first built by Joh.
    This custom Langcaster guitar is made out of old pre-historic Kauri root wood, with custom Lang pick-ups, and with built in overdrive. This guitar features the fossilization of a prehistoric bird's bones in the upper corner, found wedged between a knot in the wood that formed over time. The fossil was carefully preserved during the wood cutting and shaping process to remain as a natural decorative affect. All natural and Brilliantly done. FreeBird!
    Each guitar takes months to build and are a true work of art. Only about 50 guitars were ever produced, and the Kauri wood is no longer allowed to be used or shipped out of New Zealand due to endangered species limitations. No other wood type in the world can present with the beauty and grain pattern as Pre-historic Kauri wood. The lush swirls and the natural bright gold burst luster throughout is unsurpassed. There is a section dedicated to Langcaster guitars in Electrified - The Art Of The Contemporary Electric Guitar by Robert Shaw. An absolutely stunning guitar. 8.6 lbs. Gigbag included. Condition: Excellent.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
