Post subject:  NVRD (new vintage ric day) - 1983 Special Order 4003 w Pics!

So I picked up this 1983 4003. She's light (under 9 lbs), neck is super straight and action is very low and free of buzz.

I bought her from the second owner. He was told from the original owner that it was a special order (through his dealer). He didn't want the body binding and wanted a black truss rod cover and a black pickguard. I've never seen another quite like it. It's somewhat similar to a Shadow (and a bit less similar to a Black Star). Anyway, totally digging her. I took her out for the first time this past weekend (end of the night pic at the bottom). As a bonus, the original owner had all of the cavities professionally copper shielded (very neat job and all seams soldered, etc). She's dead-quiet!
