THIS VERY COOL NEON GREEN KRAMER ZX30H WAS TO GIVEN TO DAVID LEACH BY THE BAND FOLLOWING THE ENORMOUS SUCCESS OF THE “SLIPPERY WHEN WET” ALBUM. IT IS SIGNED BY ALL ORIGINAL MEMBERS OF THE BAND!
DAVID WAS AN INTEGRAL PART OF BON JOVI’S SUCCESS BEHIND THE SCENES AT MERCURY, AND WAS PRESENTED WITH SEVERAL ITEMS FROM THE BAND AND THE BANDS MANAGEMENT OVER THE YEARS.
David says… “Bon Jovi—what can I say? Jon is a top notch guy, did EVERYTHING i asked him and them to do. 1st year hall of fame guys. They are great and I do not think they will ever play as an original band again, unfortunately.”
THE GUITAR IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND PLAYS GREAT!
