The nearest city had a much bigger musical instrument shop and they had some pretty nice Fender and Gibson's. I was on a bit of a Derek and the Dominoes buzz after hearing the electric version of Layla on vinyl.
Also I'd become obsessed with gray. Most metal heads go for black, but I went for gray and I was into a lot of different stuff in my listening time. Metal was for playing! This guitar was excellent.
Easy to play neck, great action and active pickups(which i bypassed for a time as I was sick of paying for 9v's). Into a bigmuff and my old Marshall JCM 800, this thing was made for monster noise, not easy listening!
It had suck bottom end and was just brutal on the ears.
I didn't have the guitar all that long as I changed schools and got into synthesizers.
