My harem is ever changing as I buy and sell all the time. I am overstocked right now. These are all currently in hand. Sorry the layers are deep and hard to see them. There are more stashed around as well. THis should do for an intro.

Pretty nice guitar actually. Hard to catch the metallic color in camera. Stunning in person. Someone on another forum referred to it as the Shmoo guitar in reference to an old Scooby Doo affiliated character from Saturday morning cartoons.

1980's Marina E-602 White Metallic

Pretty rare. There is a guy who has a big collection of them who contacted me on Reverb. Hard to find info online.
