Michael Raphael's Custom Shop Jackson Strat

Michael Raphael played in Jailhouse in the 80's and 90's. He now plays in a group called Neve. I don't have much back ground on Jailhouse so far, but I will get some. I bought the guitar directly from Mike. I tried to get some more info from him, but he thought I was pretty crazy for asking questions and caring about the guitar and his history together. Here is was I was able to get from him: He was endorsed by Jackson, so he had them make him five or six guitars. At the end of the six, he had run out of ideas, so he made them airbrush his cat on the last one. Needless to say, he never played it out or in any videos. The guitar show no sign of ware at all. There isn't even one scratch on it. He said it stayed under the bed for almost 10 years.
