In celebration of the Adamas 30th Anniversary the factory produced a special reissue of the model 1687-8 which was the first production Adamas model.   They meticulously reproduced the reverse blue fade textured top, the carved headstock and bridge, the metal flake bowl finish and the walnut neck/fretboard with inlays.  The even reproduced the original 2-knob stereo preamp system right down to the walnut knobs.  The reissue model was as faithful to the original as possible and only a keen eye would spot the subtle differences.  Approximately 150 guitars were produced, of which only 3 (including mine below) were finished in the -2 (reverse red burst) color and available only through Lost Art Vintage Instruments.
