My parents got me this guitar when I was about 14. (For those of you who are counting, that would be around 1968...) I was psyched. It was cool, it was loud.... what more could you want? I'll tell you what: a Vox wah pedal, because my buddy Frank told me that was the kind of pedal Jimi Hendrix used. So I saved up enough money ($20!) to go to the local music store and grab one of them, too. Then I was set: two lipstick-tube pickups, wah on the floor, built-in tremolo in the amp, and off you go to psychedelic heaven. A couple of years ago, I dug up this guitar and the wah pedal in the attic at my mom's house, where they had sat since I had gone acoustic/folkie in the early '70s. The neck was kind of bowed, and with no truss rod to adjust it, the situation was beyond my fairly meager repair capabilities. Still, I coaxed a little bit of music out of the old axe -- bowed neck and all -- before passing it along to a better home.
Oh, yeah.... here's one of those pictures of Mick with this guitar...
