offering all customs with so many different options probably wasn't making it easy. it looks like in 1991 he decided to go with a more stream lined production run and less customs.

here is the 1991 catalog:

I guess it wasn't too long after that he shut down. 1980s were over and music was shifting. less demand for crazy 80s shred guitars.

I've seen only a few of this brands stuff pop of over the years. Ratdog has 2 of the NOS bodies a "bad boy" and a "scorpio Z"

I also spotted this 1991 Bad Boy, also missing the logo.

Can you post a link to the store that has the body’s NOS?

Even if I don't build them, they're a little piece of history.
I've been talking with Robert Monroe Turner.

Ratdog he said he has 2 necks for you if you want to buy them.

I'm probably going to be buying another Monroe soon. Seems like we're pretty close. also, I think i can get a new logo decal for my Scorpio too :mrgreen

He talking about starting up his custom shop again. I think that could be very cool. He still in El Paso TX.

I think in todays market there are a lot of new cool parts coming out. lots of new things since to late 80s. 7 stings and 8 strings. fan frets. lot of new tools that make shit work more simple.

I Definitely think he should open the custom shop. He always had his own designs so no BS from Gibson to deal with lol, not like Dean guitars... yeesh...

Ratdog let me know if you are interested in the necks and I'll send you the contact infos.

I don’t know and he didn’t seem to know. shrug

But I suspect it might have had something to do with the sheer magnitude of his posting, not necessarily the content.
