I've always been a fan of the wild fetish guitars of the 60s, and just yesterday I stumbled across this beauty in an old guitar shop I saw on a road trip. I'd never seen or heard of Thomas guitars before, so this left a real impression on me. Well, I continued on my trip and when I got home I couldn't stop thinking about the unique guitar. When I woke up this morning I decided that I really should have picked it up, but since I didn't know the price I loaded up my van with as much extra gear that I had in case I needed to do a partial cash/trade deal if it was too much for my pocket book. When I arrived back at the shop, I showed the owner my gear that I brought to see if he was interested in anything, but my heart sunk when I found out the guitar wasn't for sale. I left the shop and went out for a bite to eat, but decided to ask the restaurant for a phone book and gave the shop owner a call before completely giving up and getting back on the road. The owner agreed to trade me the guitar for all the gear in the van. It was a bit more than I wanted to let go, but I happily agreed since I probably won't find another one of these for my collection anytime soon. Anyhoo, here she is. This Century looks kinda' like if it were a Burns Bison that was heavily influenced by Italian design. Whether you love it or hate it, I'm pretty excited about my new toy. Anybody else have one of these?
