Just finished my afternoon sit-down, with my trusty "bathroom" copy of BOTB, and I have a new crush on #9 2204 (p-116-117).
Man, that guitar has some SERIOUS mojo! Anybody know its whereabouts, or know anything about it?

That one must sound good as it's been played a lot!

Wasn't Music Machine getting a "replica" of this particular guitar?

So that would be a DZ. Still, I know HE didn't play it to perfection, so what's the history? That bitch is FINE!!! Muy Mucho Mojo!!!

My guess is that since #9 2204 was photographed by Elji Kikuchi and isn't one of the serials listed by Ichiro Kato, it is (or was at the time of the shoot) owned by Perry Margouleff. the big giveaway would be if it's in the big group shot of Margouleff and his guitars which was pulled from the English edition of BOTB, anyone care to scan the Margouleff photo from the Japanese edition fairly hi rez??

I was thinking the same thing about the close resemblance to Gladys. It would be great to A/B 'em. Think DZ would leave the Gotham penthouse to bring her to Arlington, and rub elbows with the hoi polloi? Naaaah!! :lol2

Interested in this serial number. Here is a pic of the Margouleff photo from the JPN edition of BOTB. Anyone know its history?

I believe that is Perry pictured with the Dirk Ziff collection about ~30 years ago back when the collection was about one tenth of what it is believed to be now.
