Yah Mike, the amp is a screaming 150w

The guitar didn't come with the shorts. I got the Madonna T instead :lol:

The Mini Toggles are on/off for the Bartolini's except the middle pickup has a 3 way for phase reverse

No MK, I was board. I have a couple necks kicking around so I built this one. However, I am having a pickguard made using Weir's original as the template.

I don't care what anybody says, that guitar is sweet! I have often wondered though, why did Bobby choose a pink body? My conclusion is always the same to much :D
Seriously though, nice build!

I believe the story is that it was a guitar lying around the studio and when Dylan was rehearsing with them for the 87 tour, they put it in his hands to play. Afterwards, Bobby took the guitar for his own. I am sure someone will correct me if I am off... Cool story if true.

Geoff Gould gave the guitar to Dylan during the 1987 Dylan/Dead tour. Dylan gave the guitar to Bob after the tour
