Hi Werner, cool Special man! It would be a useful guitar for me as a TV Yellow sample to try and match, and I could eventually try and refinish the exposed neck area too perhaps..
If you do decide it’s superfluous, I’d be into buying it, so please keep me in mind.
Many thanks, Yuuki.

Werneg,

I think that i would be interested if you are thinking about a selling. PM me if so.

Thanks
Sean
