FACTORY SILVER XL
Exclusively from your local Guitar Center
These silver L's were a specialty item requisitioned for the Guitar Center chain. Word has it they were part of a chain-wide contest/giveaway. Each store received one XL. This count only numbered 30 - obviously before the days when they were opening up on every corner.
The color is a "traditional" metallic silver paint. Underneath these instruments were a standard black gel coat composition. The serial numbers are unique too, with the letters G.C. (obviously for Guitar Center) followed underneath by the instrument number (XX OF 30).
This one was purchased from the San Francisco store in the late 80's for $1400.
