 When Bryan asked me to make this guitar, the first thing that came to my mind was Johnny Winter and his Firebird. His albino hair and his skinny arms. Bryan instead is tall and robust and wanted one with the writing “in case of doubt, lift it up by one notch”. That of the volume on the amplifier, which increases the noise when needed. Maybe when someone in the band cannot remember the solo, he explained afterwards.
I made him create some aluminium plates eroded by acid with that writing on one side, while we did not know what to put on the other. The image of those dollars that you need to pay the bar could be ok. For the rest, nothing more than mahogany. Let’s play.
