    Well, I've had so much fun drooling over your guys' guitars, I thought I'd try and return the favor.

    Here's my small collection of GMPs -- the guitars I like to describe as simply "Rock as F*ck."

    First, my Bullseye Roxie.

    Then, my Hot Rod Flame Custom. (This is an early GMP.)

    Next up is my Shelby Firebird...a NAMM Show piece.

    Speaking of NAMM...another NAMM guitar: The Evel Knievel V. You can see this one in action at www.crankdaddy.com, in our "Jetta" video.

    My Blue Ghost Flame Roxie. The colors on this one rule.

    [​IMG]

    And finally, my Chartreuse metal flake Roxie. Yes, I said Chartreuse. Only a real man can rock a Chartreuse guitar. As evidenced by this shot of me playing it live.

    Clearly, I likes my GMPs. And I hope you guys do, too. Thanks for letting me share!

    CHUCK MY BRUTHA!!!! So good to hear from you again!

    I have YOU to thank for first turning me on to the GMP goodness. Now it's an addiction I can't shake!

    Hope all is well with you, your band, and your health!

    It kinda goes in cycles. One will get hot, and I'll play that for a couple weeks. Then another...

    Right now, it's the Chartreuse Roxie. The sound from that guitar is amazing. Plus, it's all shiny and sparkly!

    What kind of contruction and woods are in the GMP Roxie?
    • set neck, neck thru, bolt on
    • mahogany, maple and alder, etc?
    Last year I saw Neil Geraldo of Pat Benatar play a blue metal-flake Roxie with P90s and his tone was phenominal as well as his playing.

    Evel Kneivel, or however you spell the Hero's name, is a myth, a legend, a giant among ants. And, a flying v is a proper way to remind us insects of his greatness.

    Cool - I'm a long time GMP user - I've got 2 Roxies (one is a Ltd. Ed. run of 3) and a KILLER white Pawnshop Custom - lets see if I can post pics here:/Users/timothygrove/Pictures/iPhoto Library/2006/05/27/DSCF0295.JPG/Users/timothygrove/Pictures/iPhoto Library/2006/03/02/DSC01605.JPG

    Tim...you have to upload your pics to a site that'll host them. Lots of people use photobucket. I use the Dean forum, as I usually post them there. Here's where you can upload them:

    http://www.deanguitars.com/userpics/

    Or, you could just email me your pics. I'll drool over them myself for a while, :D

    and then I'll upload them to the Dean site and post 'em.

    I think you're right, AzCat.

    Now I wonder where a guy could go about procuring such a thing....:D
