'82 Pacer Special "Eye" Guitar...

Post by louieatienza » Thu Aug 16, 2018 11:45 am

I bought this guitar from a music store in Florida about 20 years ago. Loved the airbrushed artwork, and the detail is just amazing.

For years I tried hard to find info on the artist, who signed it "Gregory Andrews." Just recently I actually found him on FB, but I couldn't find him because he goes by Greg Andrews nowadays. He painted it sometime around 1990-1991, and traded it in to the Florida guitar shop around 1908 or so, when I bought it. He was actually pretty stoked that the guitar still existed and thanked me for reaching out and sharing the pics.

But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.
