I’m posting pics of my guitars on Instagram for those interested. First up is my reproduction of George Harrison’s “Rocky” strat. His was a sonic blue ’61. Mine is a sonic blue ’65. I had a friend paint it exactly like the original – down to the nail polish on the knobs. Great sounding guitar! This one never leaves the studio.
Oh btw – I’m gitguy on Instagram.

This is awesome! I should post a photo of my dad’s “Harrison” strat. It’s not exactly like his, but I’ll have to ask him why he calls it that. It’s a fantastic sparkly blue color. I use to call it the “Barbie” strat when I was a child 😂And I’ve been stalking your page there lately. Not as much as Facebook but that’s because I eagerly look forward to your live performances there 😊

Cool “Rocky”!! Ahhh, the days of psychedelically painted guitars…now you need an SG painted like
Clapton’s/Rundgren’s “Fool” 🙂
