    New Music Man prototype guitar?

    A few minutes ago I did a search because I wanted to see pics of the Black Fire prototype of the JP, and I came across this thread. The pics are gone, so I was wondering if anyone could explain to me what this was or post pics if you have them.

    And can someone explain to me what this was or have pics?

    The Black Fire is owned by ernie1966 at this forum. That and about 38 other guitars.

    The second thread is/was the prototype of what is now the BFR Petrucci formerly known as the F-1.

    I would like to see pics from either of those threads. Those threads dont really reference the Black Fire proto from what I can gather this is an entirely different (or 2 different) protos which I would love to see... Foggy you have them ?

    I believe this is the guitar in question.
    It had actually went on eBay shortly after that thread. I don't know what ever happened to it.

    Wow! that is sick. Love the blacked out pickup covers. Fairly sweet looking unfinished as well.

    I like the unfinished look. Reminds me of my old Rickenbacker bass guitar. The Ric wasn't all that, but it sure looked cool as hell.

    Again, I have to you guys credit, Dudley, Sterling and of course Drew, I'd buy that too if it were ever made.

    Though for me it wouldn't have to be a neck through.

    Was this the possible future, similar to what the Bongo was for basses?
