Interesting guitar for sale on Reverb looks great but out of my price range

Hi, yes a lovely guitar, unfortunately too expensive for me, and the shipping cost is too high.
Is this the guitar that was sent out to Hank for evaluation before the final Cliff and Shadows tour I wonder.

regards Rover

Eddie Cross tells me that when a new model is being developed he makes several plates and they normally state Prototype 0000 on them . Incidentally it was Eddie who designed the Wig Wam effect on the Fretboard and also found the Indian headrest design which is used but unfortunately is not an Apache head dress !
