Your a wise man in your deduction. I'm sure that your right in that he wanted to hear you say that your favorite player is Vinnie Vincent LOLHi Slayer, I still play a little bit but not much anymore. I had an opportunity to get in a band back in 72' but had already set my sights on going to Design College, (Art Center College of Design). But earlier than that I had seen a guitar that someone had painted for Eric Clapton and the seed was planted. Took me until about 84' before I started doing something about it, "designing and building". The rest is history.
Robby Krieger, Mark Knopfler, Georg Harrison, the Ventures, Dick Dale, Eddie Van Halen and of course old VV and a hundred more. Funny (to me) when I first met with Vinnie about the guitar he asked me who some of my favorite players were so I rattled off some names including Eddie and V didn't like that too much. I was thinking, besides him but I think now he wanted me to say it was him.
That's not a Buddy Blaze guitar Viv had there. It was a 27 fret Rand Guitar.Sneaky !!!! Honesty is BEAUTIFUL. Most people would say it was an original design.
I was gonna ask if you were inspired by Buddy Blaze(Vivian Campbell).
My friend, Tom Weber(guitar tech to EVH, CC Deville,Lyle Lovett, Craig Goldie, Reba,etc...) bought the remaining Nightswans from Kramer when they went under years ago.Yes I was thinking (yes it hurt too!), "Viv's Rand kinda looks like Tom's guitar? What do you mean?"
I assume you were both referring to the Nightswan? If you meant "whacked down on a strat" for the Nightswan, I can see what you mean, Tom.
