Well good riddance methinks. Nobody's THAT good a friend.
That's pretty cool you found one with a hard tailpiece. Most superstrats, superteles and pointed shape guitars had a strat tailpiece back then (or Floyd).
I have a Peavey Nitro-1 from those days. Kahler trem, one volume knob and a hot and crunchy single pup. Fun to bang around on...
How many of the Super Strats were actually influenced by EVH as 'a more versatile version' with additional pickups? If it has a 'Floyd then it's a descendant of Eddie's. Floyd Rose was a neighbor of Eddies that made jewelry at the time and Eddie helped him out with testing and probably design tweaks.
PRS was not the 80's guitar influencer .. Paul's first NAMM show was 1985 and still by 1995 they were only up to producing 25-30 guitars a day.
Hamer Guitars has often been cited as PRS's main influence in the beginning.
Hamer 1981 Catalog
Notice how the first guitar Paul got Santana to play on stage looks like those (this particular picture is a reissue copy done for Santana and for sale in 1997). The story I read is that Paul skulked around Santana's back stage with his various guitars trying to get a meeting. Today anyone doing that would get barred with stalking charges.
This is Santana with his Yamaha SG2000 guitar he played up until the PRS one above.
Somewhat later a fleet of Hamer designs to choose from...
I just ‘know’. But now you got me worried that some might be right socks masquerading as left socks.
Didn’t Hamer make a really cool 36 fret shredder? Can’t recall the name at the mo.
Can't believe I never caught that! Good eye.
