    NGD on a Sunday - BP's Favorite Fail content

    Took a little drive this afternoon to meet up with a dude who had this rarity listed on FB. He's a fellow MM nut and I traded a Luke for this Reflex.

    I'd never heard of this band, but this color scheme was apparently made for Dustin Bushnell of The Dirty Heads. This one was made for an Ernie Ball giveaway about 5 years ago, and the guy that I got it from was the winner (why can't I ever win a promo like that??). It spent the majority of its life in the case under a bed. It's dead mint down to the original strings. It's got the "Custom Made" neck plate along with Mr. Bushnell's signature on the top.

    Like I said, never heard of the guy but I love the color scheme. It's really neat how the binding matches the white stripes on the top. As much as I'd like to preserve the originality of it though, I'm not really keen on the sharpie scribble on the top. I may take the orbital buffer to it eventually.

    In typical 25th/Reflex fashion, it plays like a dream and just seems to sing. I owned a 25th a couple of years ago and I don't know if it's the hardtail that's making a difference, but this one just seems to ring out a lot more than my old 25th did.

    Oh...My.... Outstanding!!!

    Love it.... except for the scribble. I'd find something to remove that but preserve the rest of it.

    Wow! What a great looking Reflex!! Congrats on your score. I think you should take some napthal and rub that sharpie signature off if you don't even know who the signature is from. It's your baby!

    Very nice acquisition! That color with the stripes is killer (I'd wipe off the signature too as someone else already suggested).

    Nice one! I had a sunburst Reflex with trem I sold. It was great but not for me I thought.. Then I ran into a white hardtail model with a rosewood fretboard. It was so resonant and alive I had to buy it. I contribute that to it having a hardtail, so you could be right about that!
