Anyone have a good, relatively recent picture of Malcolm Young's Gretsch, The Beast?

    I love that guitar and feel slightly bummed that Gretsch didn't try harder to actually make the Malcolm Young model more like his guitar, complete with empty pickup cavaties. And what are those stud looking things filling the switch holes on the upper horn/bout?

    If I remember correctly, Gretsch did make a limited amount of replicas of Malcolm's guitar, complete with plugs and missing pickups.

    Malcolm Young is a hero of mine. That guy is just a beast. I'd love to own one of those gretsch malcolm young sigs. You can get em for a decent price used if you hunt for em.

    Also, the bottom right corner pic is the one that doesn't belong. ;)
