    My Gretschy friends, I have sinned. I have strayed from the true path and have worshipped the false idol Mosrite.

    This is my fifth one now, except its not a Mosrite. Its the signature Mosritealike made by Hallmark for Starcrunch, the guitarist from surf punk viking buccaneers Man Or Astro Man. It's a lot like a Mossie but it has a more modern solidity about it, less of the seat-of-the-pants high jinks that you get with a real one.

    Digging the lovely pearl white finish (doesn't show that well in photos), but the jury's out on the "wacky" PCB pickguard.

    Definitely my number one stage guitar, for now.

    Congrats! I like that particular hue of white. Not a fan of the PCB pickguard. Maybe if it was electronically functional...

    I like it. The pickguard gives this classic it a cool tekkno-touch. Why not?

    I also like the pick guard.
    It would be even cooler were it somehow functional.

    Cool, I want a mosrite. I dig the oickguard but is it textured like most PCBs? I like the idea and look but I don't think I'd like the feel. Like a fresh perspective on steam punk.

    I’m just trying to figure out what it’s from. My PBX at work could easily handle 10,000 to 20,000 users, and has a system board smaller than that one.

    I like that guitar . . . a lot. In addition to the unique shape and pickup tilt, the circuit board pickguard adds to the unique vibe.

    Congrats, markeebee!

    Daaaang, that whammy bar is a gorgeous bit of kit. Nice guitar. The pickguard only troubles me if its a picture of a board instead of the real thing. If it were just a screen print I’d have it off in a jiffy.

    the classic tort guard would look the part on that but hey just my opinion, that is still a cool guard though. any rattle from the bridge? most roller bridges rattle in my experience but nothing some clear nail varnish can't fix. i'm talking to bob at the moment to make me a custom that will look very much like this - rfoi8ke53moopx0cdvnc.jpg
