    I'm very excited to receive an early pre-silhouette Music Man to say the least. As of today, I currently own 2 Silhouettes(includes NGD Binge that's on the way), 1 Silhouette Special, 2 Axis Sport MM90's, 1 Axis Super Sport Hardtail and a Reflex vintage trem. I've always been a player of the smaller scale guitfiddles, but when I purchased my first EBMM... The Silo Special... That was the end of that haha. Picked it up off Reverb for a steal. From that point on, its been Balls On The Walls!!!!!

    What makes this special is UPS "LOST" my pride and joy Silo named Emerald! Actually...."The Ups Store"(separate entity but affiliates smdh) back in July. Luckily I declared a value and they stayed true to the fine print. I told my better half that I'm going to get a 86-87 6-bolt Silo with the funds. I was exaggerating haha, how often do you see those years...not often. Well, believe it or not, GC in Nashville had an '86 in there store. From the looks of it... It is all original with the wonderful checking all over the finish(Pre-Nitro days). I'm pretty certain it's all OG but can't wait to see her in person and take her apart!!!! Very excited to own some MM history. I'll post pics as soon as she arrives.

    Thanks guys and too all the great threads in this forum. May be my first post but I've been a watching �� and researching for years. If you happened to view the guitar or have already seen her at GC, would love to hear your thoughts!?!?!

    ***Type in Vintage 1986 Silhouette in Google. The pics should be there to view under GC website***

    EDIT: UPLOADED PICS from GC's site...first reply to myself ��
    I almost bought that one myself. I had it in my cart and chnaged my mind after careful consideration.....and a cigar.
    Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you.

Previous Silo was modern as could be...BK Aftermaths,db boost/sustainer, push/pull split...now I'm gonna have me a nice vintage voiced work of art(haven't verified pickups just yet) and I'm sure it'll bring me tons of joy!
    Ya, uh-huh...."lost" RIGHT!

    Sorry to hear you didn't purchase this piece of MM history🕵🎸 VH...wait a minute... Hell no I'm not😋😂. As for The Ups Store and the infamous "LOST" Silhouette...it NEVER even got scanned smdh. I ALWAYS package like a boss, so I really don't think it got damaged but the more I think about it, I'm certain it got lifted...it was fit in a well made Gibson box and had "Gibson Custom" all over the box lmao. Prob was hoping for '59 RI. Owner of the store swears it went on the truck🤔. My question is...Why never scanned then??? Lost label??? He replied "most likely"... Great! Not only did you "lose" my guitfiddle but you're admitting to having lazy ass employees that can't create another label hahahaha F$@K OFF!!!! It worked out though... Thanks for giving me the chance to owning a real Gem🤘😋🤘

    That is truly unfortunate. I try to be careful about accusing people of anything without all the facts, but I would think that a large box that is just sitting around (with a "To" and "From" address on it, no less!) would eventually lead someone to contact at least one of the parties in either address. Gosh, it's not like we are talking about a small envelope or a tiny box here.
    Oh well. At least you ended up with something cool! In the future though, please let me know if you are gonna buy a guitar out from under me!
