Bill Lawrence “Purple Rain”

This guitar has a confusing history but from what I can piece together it seems it was a custom order based on the BTIIM-70P. And the bridge, pickguard and control knobs were swapped at some point. 

For those who don’t know, this is pretty similar (and from the same factory/era) to the Mad Cat guitars Prince famously played. Due to the color and whatnot, the previous owned called this a Purple Rain tribute. I’m rolling with it.

It’s a great guitar. Little noisy, I need to add some shielding.
