Mimic/Tribute/Clone Guitar Club

Postby arellanon » Mon Feb 04, 2013 10:13 am

Hey gals and guys! I have been noticing a lot of activity in the mimic/tribute/clone guitar department so I think it is time we open a club thread for it. I will start it with my Tom Morello "Steelcaster" guitar:

What can I say? Tom is MY original guitar hero and my inspiration to picking up the instrument. I also credit Yngwie tons so I will eventually get me a Bolt in Vintage Cream and slap some DiMarzios in it.

So what is YOUR story fellow Carvinites?

Named Pegasus after the Betts tune on the Allman Bros. album Enlightened Rogues, this guitar is intended as an understated tribute to Dickey Betts and Duane Allman.
Being a big fan, I tried to create a Carvin Goldtop that came as close as possible to theirs.
(with the exception of the ebony board and stainless frets)
Pickups were changed out to Gibson 57 Classic / Classic+ set.
Electronics were changed out to CTS, Switchcraft etc.
I've owned 3 nice LPs... this kills them all... a pretty amazing guitar.
God bless Duane and Dickey and all of the Allman Bros. for the gift of their incredible and timeless music!
