B'Day Guitar

Recommended Posts

This is the guitar my brother made for my birthday, yesterday. He bought all the parts and then painted and installed all the tuners, neck, bridge, tailpiece, pickups, pots, knobs and soldered all the wiring. Then put on strings and set intonation and tuned the guitar, it sounds fantastic. The case is silver and black check and the silver looks gold in certain light, it reminds me of Cheap Trick! Well here are a few pix, not sure if I can get all 10 in this post. I might have to split them in a couple posts. BTW, this guitar reminds me of the one that Dave Grohl plays in the Foo Fighters.

^^  yes its full hollow body, my brother played it and says it sounds fantastic through about 4 different amps. Full tone with beautiful whole body sounds. I barely had time to take pix to post, I've been outside cutting grass and yard work and have a couple more things to do outside. After that, I'll shower and cool off and then plug in. I'll let you know what I think later.

I also had a NGD for my recent birthday.  I picked up an "Inspired by John Lennon" Epiphone Casino.  These are an upgrade over the regular issue Casino.  It has Gibson USA P-90 pickups, and a couple of other different cosmetic touches including the black ring around the pickup selector switch.  I'm really enjoying it so far. 

I was trying to think if Mike or Tom ever used a Casino on stage, and I don't think I've ever seen them do that.  Tom used a Casino in a couple of videos - I think the "Walls" video, and maybe the Mary Jane's Last Dance video from the living room?  I'd have to double check.  If anyone has a picture of Tom using one on-stage, I'd love to see it.
