    Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal has a couple of very nasty looking Six stringers in his collection...

    It's safe to say if there was no Prince and I saw this guitar, I would think it was too weird for me. However, being that it pretty much sums up his famous persona, it's a piece of rock and roll history.

    Just like I would never be keen on owning a hat that looks like Neil Young's, it's an icon of the guy most fans recognize.

    There are just a few pieces of clothing and instruments that have such a recognizable vibe, and the purple Prince guitar is one of them. His one of white guitar is even more famous.

    I can tell the quality is top notch, but certainly not a design I would entertain had I possessed the guitar making skill.

    That's pretty much it right there... I hate Ovations (no I'm not kidding, they're truly awful IMO).

    Cheers

    The poor kid who made this made the mistake of posting it on harmony Central...they ate him alive....but it was christened...the Cody caster after the builder...it was his first...you know in case members had not figured that out ...

    I really like the headstock then again I like some of the old Fenton Weill/Burns headstocks.....that Gretsch is one cool looking guitar....if it is a bolt on neck
    then couldn't USACG supply a neck with that custom headstock and get a body made only with a horseshoe bigsby and TV Jones Filtertrons pus telecaster
    controls.....perhaps a thinline variant as well with TV Jones Dynasonics.
