late 70's, made in Korea, my dad bought this for $35.
Later I found out he bought it for himself, and when he couldn't figure it out handed it down to me.
Frets are almost done, but it seems wrong to put any money into it.
I have already spent more that it's original value replacing the tuning...
kind of a closet classic, my friend has had this for about 20 years or so.
anyone have any expertise? I didn't see a model number on it
apologies for crappy cellphone pics, I was distracted by the Floyd Rose lookin' thingie
odd - DSOTM has always been "the perfect album, except for that one song"
I always thought "Money" was a crappy song the first time i heard it, and I still do.
a couple of perfect albums for me:
Afghan Whigs - Gentlemen
AC/DC - Highway to Hell
Van Halen - I
The Cure - Disintegration
Concrete Blonde - it's a shame they are mostly known as the "Joey" band, because their two albums that came out in the 80's were terrific.
Hoodoo Gurus - just fun guitar rock from Australia. Mars Needs Guitars a great album. So was Blow Your Cool.
the first time i saw Screaming Trees (early 90s), Mark Lanegan was so skinny he was pretty effectively hiding behind the microphone stand.
Then came this booming growl of a voice. Incongruent, but flat out awesome.
I was about 20 when that album came out. i had heard Cliffs of Dover, and is was something special for sure.
I saw him open for Joe Satriani, and spent the break wondering why the hell Satch would have someone THAT strong setting the bar every night.
Satch came out and killed it as well...
