    after enjoying Los Straightjackets on the utube, I found myself admiring the sparkly sixties space age look of the Dipinto they were playing. Looked them up online, they're somewhat affordable. Anybody play one? What did you think?

    Why yes I have and am friends with Eddie Angel and the Band. Got to play one at their Summer camp several years ago. Played both styles with the blade pickup switch and the buttons. Preferred buttons for no reason except looks. Very nice comfortable guitars.
    Catch them in concert if you can.

    I’d love to see them sometime. Don’t think they make it to southwest Missouri very often. Maybe someday...

    I had one of the early ones, with the blade p/u selector. Beautiful transparent green. Selling that guitar was a mistake I have come to regret.

    I had a Galaxie with the blade switch. Wish I still had it. I would prefer the button switches.

    Very nice, well-made guitar.
