Description:
Lee had just finished cleaning this Rhoads V up and was walking into the office when I held up my hand. "Stop right there," I said. "You know that white Soloist sold in two days, don't cha?" and he nodded his head. I continued, "I also went and looked at your description- how in the blue blazes did you manage to work in the titles to 15 songs into the description?" "I dunno," he quipped. "You know me- I never write about the guitar. I just spit out what comes to mind and let it ride from there. The guy that bought that Jackson thought it was funny as hell, especially when I told him that I was really talking about our actual practice room in Ace's basement." I shook my head. "Man, I gotta figure out something like that for the Rhoads," I said. "I know- I'll work in 15 different toppings that could go on a hamburger. Whaddaya think?" He laughed at me and said, "Hold on with that car wash, gentlemen. I gotta tell you a couple of things about that V."

"No, no- I got it!" I yelled. "The pearl logo could be the lettuce and the Floyd trem could be the mustard," (I figured that since mustard is gold colored and Floyds are pure gold in the Jackson world.) "The white color could be the cheese, the black hardware could be cracked pepper and the nut would, of course, be ketchup." Man, I was on a tear when he stopped me again. "Look Cub," he said. "I just looked at the pickups and they've been upgraded. There's a Dimarzio DP158FBK in the neck and a DP102BK in the bridge. "Even better," I yelled. "Red onions instead of white ones. This burger's gonna be upgraded as hell!" "A Rhoads Burger Deluxe," I puffed. Now I was really on a roll.

Lee stopped me again. "Did you look at the serial number?" he asked and when I shook my head, he said, "It's U20001. It's the first of something." That let the air out of my ballon real quick. I didn't really know how to equate a serial number to a hamburger topping. "Really?" I said. "0001?" and he nodded his head. "Yeppers and that might be the coolest thing of all."

Hell, now I was downright dejected. So many Jackson guys had enjoyed our write- up on the Soloist, I just knew for a brief minute that I was going to close the show with my burger toppings idea. I was actually thinking that once the story got out, this guitar, with its particular serial number might even become known as the "Burger Rhoads V." Man, that would be cool- getting to unknowingly name a guitar that would end up in somebody's collection and then, years later, when it reappeared, the entire Jackson community would be all abuzz about the "Burger Rhoads V" being available for sale. Hell, I bet it might even get a world record price because of the history and circumstances attached to it, but now that all faded away like a leaf in the wind. Dammit! The guitar gods had crushed my dreams of discovering the "Burger Rhoads V." Life had now become unbearable and not worth living...

Lee placed his hand on my shoulder. "Calm down my boy," he said. "The thing is still cool as hell and it is unique- don't think you'll see another one quite like it." He couldn't help himself. "Let's go get a burger," he said with a huge grin, but I had a better idea. "Nah, let's go get a beer," I said and we were off. All of that said, I'm still hatching an idea to rename the next cool Jackson we get in here. Maybe I'll work in 15 different ways to display a sense of humor...
