THE SWISS CHEESE GUITAR


I started working at age 12 painting album covers on the backs of dungaree jackets for $20 each (most people asked for Iron Maiden's first album or Killers) Ibanez just came out with the Roadstar series of guitars, which were Stratocaster copies with a better vibrato bar on 'em. When I was 14 I saved up enough money to get one selling at the store I took lessons at - the wood was cracked, it was last year's model, it was $180. It was a 1983 Ibanez Roadstar RS135BK (bought it July 3rd, 1984) First thing I did when I brought it home was pry the paint off it and sand it down to the wood.

This is another guitar that went through alot of changes. Put a humbucker by the bridge. At one point I hung old skeleton keys all over the guitar - made the guitar too heavy. I left it as is for a while. Put a Floyd vibrato and a locking nut on it eventually. I wanted to make the guitar look like someone took a big bite out of the body. My dad had a bunch of drill bits - I drilled away the wood where ya rest your picking arm, and in the end it looked like shit. So I kept on drilling and eventually it looked like Swiss cheese. I went to an auto paint store with a slice of Swiss cheese and told them I need to match that color. They hooked me up and I painted it yellow. In the early 90s, DiMarzio re-wired the guitar for me, with a Chopper pickup by the neck and a Tone Zone by the bridge. They put in a single volume knob and a 5-way toggle switch - 1) bridge pickup, 2) bridge pickup as a single-coil, 3) both pickups, 4) both pickups out of phase, 5) neck pickup.

This was my main guitar until I hooked up with Vigier in '97. When Vigier built the "Bumblefoot" guitar, I laid the cheese guitar to permanent rest.
