“It was a sparkly purple Marlin Sidewinder. I think they were the first true ultra-budget (aka shit) electric guitars? Anyway, at the time, I thought it was the greatest thing in the world. I think Mike Vennart actually has a Sidewinder bridge on his current guitar, so maybe it wasn’t so bad...”more
Extremely dense, heavy, laminated, plywood bodied guitar that has great sustain but still retains a chimey character. Five position pick-up switch that allows selection of neck, neck and middle, middle, middle and humbucker and humbucker alone. Also a switch to split the humbucker making a vast array of tones available. Purchased metallic pastel pink in 1987 and always pick it up once in a while. Quite a low action on a maple neck with a rosewood fretboard.
