Jeff Waters’ (ANNIHILATOR) “Crystal Ann” classical guitar is up for sale. Yes, you heard that right. This is THE 1974 Yamaha GC-3D, hand-made Japanese classical guitar that has been used on EVERY Annihilator song that has a classical guitar on it; including “Crystal Ann” (the 1st song on Annihilator’s debut release ”Alice In Hell”, back in 1989), “Phoenix Rising” and a few dozen more!
This guitar was given to Jeff in 1974, when Jeff was only 8 years old, and has produced some... of the most excellent and influential playing in metal guitar history. If that is a bold statement, then consider that music schools across the world teach students this song and it is played by guitarists in all forms of music, all over the globe.
This is considered an almost priceless piece of guitar and metal history so music establishments, collectors and pretty well-off folk will likely be the only ones to afford this… but it only takes one lucky buyer.
... and when the inevitable question comes in saying "has Jeff lost his mind?", the answer is "No". Someone else should get this who knows its mini-historical musical value. He has a helluva lot of guitars and this one has served him well for 42 years!
This will also be the first of a few more special guitars to be offered; Jeff has many and would rather get them to someone else than let them stay in storage and making no sounds!
Seller Notes: “Worn, blemished, scratched, dinged & used for 42 years; and that's why it rocks!”
