Any reason to suspect gold plate? You do know, it would be rather rare to find on a VI. As gold plate is usually applied over silver, where the finish is worn, you'd see silver underneath. Gold plate will also polish.

I'll give you $2500 if the pics are good and it's mint. I don't think you're going to do better, so PM the pics to me and don't waste your time with any of these guys. :)

Trust me dude you don't want a girlfriend. Been there done that nightmare too many times. It's nice to have a hottie sleeping next to you at night, but your chops will go straight down the toilet.

Never had a girlfriend that didn't freak out when I told them how much I practice everyday. When your on your deathbed you'll be a lot prouder of the time you spent playing music then you will fighting, bickering and pulling your hair out trying to keep her happy.
