So I was walking in to the Kalamazoo GC last week. My first stop is always the high end used wall.
I looked up and I couldn't believe my eyes!!!
It was a silver hologram sparkle Heritage Mark Slaughter "ROCK" model!!!!
My first thought was..."it has to be a refin!" I had them pull it down and I looked inside the control cavity...nope....not a refin!!! The Heritage label simply said....MARK SLAUGHTER, and the serial #
I put it back on the wall and went home. I got on my laptop and started searching for pics of Mark and his guitars and found these.....

I called GC and immediately put it on layaway!!! (unfortunately its on police hold until December 14th)
I reached out to Mark recently, asking him if in fact this was his guitar. He replied back to me yesterday. He said it was his personal guitar. We haven't gotten into and details yet on the whole history of the guitar....he is currently on tour, so he is probably busy.
I have ordered some new parts for it to bring it back to factory original....black tuners, black bridge/tailpiece. The pickups and electronics appear to be original. I even ordered a custom replica of the original Mark Slaughter truss rod cover that came on it from the factory .
