Hi there!

Postby Defiler2004 » Sat Oct 13, 2018 8:38 am

Hm, I've started from the wrong side of the bed with bombardment of questions without proper introduction.

Well, hi there! My name is Nick, in my 30s, I reside in Dubai for 3 years already, working. I'm a fan of Mosrites for quite a time but this love raised from Mosrite's "Grungy" side.

For almost 10 years I'm a proud owner of Mosrite Mark I Ranger RG-1966 MIJ, which now bears signatures of Kee Marcelo and Uli Jon Roth from 2009. When Kee saw the guitar I brought for signing he was curious - what the heck is this? I also own an Univox which my brother gave me as a birthday present and which I repainted and upgraded for a lot of a buck but it's always a different thing when it's a present, right?

Sure!
Hope this mumbo-jumbo with dropbox will work.
Signed guitar. I guess you've noticed a sharpie penned tremolo base and a bud made of wiring tape.

Me 20-something during a pre concert signature session. it was AHMAZING. Since then I've gained a lot of Kg's and got a beard.

Some digits under the hood

papers that were included. I've got it from Japanese store, Ishibashi or Kurosawa Gakki, can't recall

The crappiest wiring I've ever seen.

At least 2 bars, like it should be

With her friends. Since then a lot of guitars were acquired

This is my precious, Univox in a custom-built to fit exactly Univox case (it is a hard-case even though it looks like a soft one and is capable to withstand harsh temperatures). Note the "killer-switch" made of antivandal button.
Image
It's possible to notice some things from the photo: neck binding, new nut, new frets, new pickguard, new paintjob. It was dings and rags with a dead truss-rod and deadly glued neck joint when I've got it.
Image
And that how it look'd like "Before"
Image
Since I work thousands of kilometers from the place I live, there are only two guitars here with me, Rickenbacker 620 and Squier Bass VI

Have no idea how to rotate the photo to be shown properly since in Dropbox it is viewed the correct way.

I think that was not the worst intoduction, eh?)
