Roland GR-707; it's just such an oddball footnote of its time. Every time I move I try to talk myself into getting rid of it, lol.

I have the red one. Don't get me wrong; its tone is shit & it's uncomfortable to play. It's just my favorite for entirely meaningless reasons.

 I remember trying one of those out back in the day! Guitar synths have come a long way since then. Love my GR20.

Put a Rebel Yell Bare Knuckles pickup in the bridge......or maybe the Nailbomb if you like harder tones.

Wasn't that guitar made by Fujigen Gakki?

The more I look into Fujigen, the more I realize just how many people are playing them without knowing it.

I just pulled the trigger and bought a Gibson SG brand new.


I've always been fond of their sound and design (solid body with humbuckers and a fixed bridge). I was playing it with a bit of overdrive and I couldn't say no to it. I've been shut in like a hermit all weekend playing it.


It needs a little setting up still and I'll take it to my guy for that.

It seems to change from season to season. Right now it is a '91 am standard in gunmetal blue. Pickups are all that is not original. All Van Zandt:

Blues neck

vintage + middle

rock bridge

This is the only guitar I own that I bought new in 1991

 Wow, I used to have a '91 american standard Strat with that same pickup layout. Mine was black. A customer played it and HAD to have it, so I sold it to him. Great sounding guitar, the Van Zandt set really woke it up.

That center pickup is sweet for clean sounds with chorus or flange.

How much are you paying for a stainless steel refret if you don't mind my asking?

Reasonable,IMO. That's a tough job compared to nickle silver.

Whaledog: Yeah, they all work but probably not like people expect. The fuzz is wicked, the other fx are all based on a tremolo circuit so echo doesn't really repeat but makes the signal kind of staccato. A real oddball, can't wait to play it live.

The ss refret is a work of art. This guitar practically playes itself now.

I did not notice the alleged brighter tone with stainless steel frets.

Ive been using the in between positions more now

its more tiger stripe style lemme see if I have a close up

I guess maybe you're right still this picture does no justice.  It is really dark in this pic and its a gorgeous color in real life.
