Don't know which is more badass, the guitar or the playing...<br /> <br /> Based on the Acoustic (Mosrite?) Black Widow, from circa 1970. Jimi had one. Semi-hollow, bolt-on, with a Fender scale length.<br /> <br /> I want.

That's very cool.<br /> <br /> I like the stutter thing he does with the pickup switch.

From time to time the originals come up for sale on eBay or Reverb ~$1K. Most hover around $1.5K. <br /> The Eastwood I'm interested in since it's a set neck. The originals had a bolt on neck and that Gretsch padded cushion on the back.

"The originals had a bolt on neck..."<br /> <br /> Did not know that... might make the copy better than the original, which isn't usually the case. (Of course, I don't know how good/unique/special the original pickups were, etc. ...)

daveg, thanks for clarifying about the neck join. I was thinking of the original. Yup, a set neck makes it even more attractive, and makes more sense at the price.

Here's Roy Clark on a one-off Mosrite Celebrity 12.<br /> <br /> Few mortals dared to attempt classical finger vibrato on a 12.

Does anyone know what song RJ is playing in the beginning of the video?<br /> <br /> The riff and progression sounds familiar, but I don't listen to much radio. (or music outside of my bubble)<br /> <br /> Sad I know...

It's been driving me nuts too, Mick. I know the song...it's by a UK band...early 80's/late 70's...<br /> <br /> Not enough brain cells left to pull it out, I'm afraid...

The only spec on this thing that scares me off a little is the 1 5/8" nut - that's pretty small these days. Anyone know how fat or thin the neck is? If it's not too thin, I could probably handle it...

"It's been driving me nuts too, Mick. I know the song...it's by a UK band...early 80's/late 70's..."<br /> <br /> I recognize it also, but is it really that old? I was thinking maybe early 90's....but then, time flies when you're havin' fun! ;)

"I recognize it also, but is it really that old?"<br /> <br /> I think it's way more current than that. Like past few years maybe?<br />

Don't go kicking any photographers in the face, now...<br /> <br /> <br /> Anyone else notice RJ's playing a few pedals through a Quilter Toneblock 200? Killer tone.

Aha!...Thanks Peegoo<br /> <br /> Well, aside from the nationality of the band...and the decade...I was close! Funny how the brain wires cross...<br /> <br /> More evidence for the widely held theory that Peegoo knows everything...<br />
