From Buddy’s Facebook: “About 30 years ago, I bought this ’79 Dean ML from my good friend Eugene at the Arlington Guitar Show… I started restoring it in ’87. I got very busy with Kramer and Vivian Campbell at the time, so I put it in its case, in its present state. It has been there ever since then… I have pulled it out a couple of times since then, once to show Dimebag Darrell when Pantera was in New York touring with Prong. He was always looking for used MLs back then… Anyway, it’s time for me to finally finish it and find a new home for it. Who wants a genuine vintage Dean ’79 ML restored by Buddy Blaze? Call 818 620 6445 to put your name on it. Serious only please…”

EVH Wolfgang Special. Mmm, Stripey…

evh3

One of the cool ‘Wait a minute… what’s that I see in the corner?’ things from NAMM was this EVH Wolfgang Special with hard-tail bridge and ‘bumblebee’ striped finish. They’re only making 150 of them and the MSRP is $1,793.00. This is the first official striped Wolfgang and I hope there are many to follow. Who wouldn’t want a red, white and black striped Wolfgang with Floyd Rose, huh?  Read More …

Michael Kelly 1950s Series 7 & 8-Strings!

kelly1

This is hands down one of the coolest things I saw at NAMM: a pair of new 1950s Series models by Michael Kelly Guitars. A 7-string and an 8-string! I’ve always felt that the Telecaster-style design is perfect for extended range instruments because it really encourages attack and note separation, and prompts the player to explore all sorts of interesting chordal stuff. Plus they look badass. They’re rocking Flame Maple tops of Alder bodies with Maple necks, Rosewood fretboards, Rockfield Fat Ass pickups, and 25.5″ scale length for the 7-string and 27″ for the 8-string. Check out the 7-string here and the 8-string here.
