Coming from the amazing private collection of Armand Crump, Kerry Kings tech, this just might be the pinnacle of his collection. The holy grail of Dimebag guitars, the Washburn Southern Cross is one of the most sought-after guitars in history. This piece however, is a 2002 pre-production one off, built just after Dime’s personal run, and BEFORE the production run of 50. Serial number on this piece is 0205077, and inscribed 1 OF BCIII, which was Armand’s nickname. Armand had this guitar built for his longtime girlfriend, and her nickname can be seen on the back of the headstock. This guitar is in excellent condition, and shows no signs of wear. The back plates however are missing, but can be easily replaced. This guitar will come with the HSC, as well as the ebony cross necklace. No COA exists on this piece because this was before the run. This piece will not last long!
