Guitars Just Find Me...

A local punk rock group The Dead Chachis did a good thing. I mean besides put out some homegrown old style type punk they sponsored a guitar raffle to benefit Hurricane Harvey Relief. I always try to support local music, I bought the cd, the t shirt and I won the guitar. My wife likes to catch me at unguarded moments and ask how just how many guitars I do have. I can't come up with an answer real quick and best I can counter with is "do I have to count banjos, mandos, ukes and a lap steel?" Anyway here is the newest one. 

No, not really a Gibson but according to Dead Chachis guitarist Adam Rios it's a knock off copy in the SG body style that was his first attempt at painting a guitar. It came out pretty good. It does fit in well with what Cathy calls the "tooth paste Guitars" as it is the third guitar I have acquired that's just a shade off the color of old school Crest.   

I Think these last two photos with a flash give a bit more of the true color. 

Those pickups, for the electric guitar uneducated are what they call hum buckers. It's the first guitar I have owned with these so up against the P90, single coil, gold foil, DeArmotrons and lipstick pickup guitars I own it gives another tool in the tool box.   

I might do a little customizing with some fancy knobs and stuff. 

Check out some Dead Chachis and like them on facebook.
