Last post for a while and this one is Kramer related
Does the Arbour guitar on the right have an ESP body
It's pretty heavy and looks similar to Kramer body shape. Hell I never really payed alot of notice to it Just put away in a case but that looks like chicken beak head huh? Could not find anything about this model guitar for like 5 years. I check every once in a while but nothing. What do you think? And yes it's definitely a P.O.S. Guitar
But I got it for 18 bucks in a La Place Louisianna pawn shop about a 1/2 hour north of New Orleans. I think I paid sales tax, like 20 bucks total. How could you turn down a guitar like this for 20 bucks seriously? Its got 2 Seymour Duncan SH-8 Invader Pickups in it, there like 90 bucks a pop, Hell the gibby speed knobs are 16 bucks a set easy.
How do you say "Do you got rocks in your head" in Germany????
Peace out
:usa

The Gibby Knock off on the left of the arbour Pic is a late 70's mark II. I completely lost my mind on this one
It had duct tape all over it 1 Emg with regular pickup? 2 knobs and plug went into tone knob hole
Now its got all American pots and switch, vintage cloth wire
a vintage 70's 3 wire dual sound dimarzio (Ace Frehley).
A wax potted PAF in the neck. New pick guard, nut, machine heads, Jack, jack plate, back cover plates cut new ones both
Yes I spend more than it will ever be worth but this guitar is probably the closest thing to Jimmy Page's Number 1 that I'll ever own. It really does play amazing I shit you not

We say "sand" instead... "Hast du nur Sand im Kopf?" or shorter "Bist du bescheuert?" (are you nuts?)

Nice work there :thumbs One datail, I'd either remove the chrome cover or add it to the other pup as well.
