You be hard pressed to find one of these guitars....even a photo of one is difficult!

One of roughly 10 made.

Enjoy!

The man himself!



They were quite the thing in the day! I wonder if any of these guys owned one for the road?





Of course there were many more... just a small sample!

So you have this one, Eric, or is it just a pic...?

I'm with THD on the bridge/saddles...

Is that a proto and they just grabbed a bridge laying around for a promo pic?


I see that it has a zero fret... I like that.... Sell ZeroGlides at my shop... I like em and if I have any nut issues on my guitars that calls for replacement, a ZG is going on it... My biz partner put one on his Fen PJ bass... Dayum it plays much mo better out west close to the nut... The first four or five is where it really makes a difference to me in feel. It also makes intonation easier because it is NOT based on nut anchor point which is SOMEWHERE between the front and back of nut, depending on tech that cut it... Intonation will always be based on the string anchoring right on top of the zero fret...

I think they are awesome. Extreme light weight and high quality for keeping up your chops while traveling. I have a travel guitar and the neck is hideous: way too wide and bad action.

The neck and fret board material looks to be different between #5 and #9. Are they both polished aluminum and just diff colors?

Cool. I've played Steve Albini's Veleno with P90s on a recording I did at his studio. Played it through a Gibsonette amp. Cool tone.

When I was a kid, I wouldn't miss Don Kirschner's Rock Concert.
I wanted to BE Mark Farner.

It's been explained to me that the idea with the bridge is that the intonation screws are between the strings and more accessible than if they were directly under each string. The odd look doesn't alter the string spacing.

Eric, does #9 have a PAF in it?

Very cool stuff, man!
