    Won again!!

    I was watching this piece for a few days, I quite like these old(ish) screwbacks, (from 2000 so already 17 years old).

    I put in two bids, one was beaten fairly quickly, my maximum of £50 won it at £47.

    I don't know what these normally go for, but I liked it so good enough for me I guess .

    Here's a couple of the seller's pics,

    G-2000 "Vice Eye":

    That guy was selling 4 nice G's, the others went too high for me, so I tried for this one!

    Re: Won again!!

    So just gave this a very quick strip down and clean, but it didn't really need one as it's obviously been very well looked after.

    It's a lovely deep navy blue colour, the silver face and white lettering really suit it well.

    I didn't realise, but the EL is not the whole display, but just the numbers, letters and eye. Usually I've found this type of lighting is on the G's with mirrored or negative displays.

    It's a solid piece that's for sure, all stainless steel with the screwback and Japan H made, it's got a nice weight to it.

    I haven't had a G-2000 before, but I like it a lot
