    Does anybody else follow Neal Schon on Instagram? Over the last year or so he's been on a guitar buying rampage, new (old) guitars posted pretty much everyday and they're all so clean. Today he posted what has to be the cleanest 51 Nocaster I've ever seen, of course in hand it might not be quite as immaculate as the pictures show but it's definitely in incredible shape for a 70 year old guitar.

    I can't link to Instagram here but go look at the pictures, I'm hoping he puts up a couple of videos soon.

    Amazingly clean! Love to hear "the story" on that one. Not to mention how much it weighs. Some of those old Tele's can have some heft.

    Me too, Neal does respond to comments but quite often a couple of days after they're left. I guess he's probably a fairly busy man, he has to be to pay for all these guitars!

    With any luck he'll put up a video soon, and I just pray it's not loaded with effects so we can't hear the guitar!

    Follow him and usually does reply. He bought a Gibson a few days ago that stole my wallets heart.
