I have had two of them in the past. I have to say I do like walnut.
Talk about fads, mine had those Dirty fingers pups, and nobody
wanted those. Now all of a sudden, people give a fortune for

In the 80's they were all over the pawnshops. Never really took a liking to them. It was the 80s though.
Who's the dude in the mirkin playing one in your pics?

I apologize if this is seen as a threadjack, but I'd LOVE if someone could talk more about the Dirty Fingers pups. There are a couple of guitars around town that I like acoustically that have them, and in each store the opportunity to plug in is severely compromised by 14 year old shredders.
What are they like?

A "The Paul" was my first real guitar. I bought it used in '83. It was solid, but would not stay in tune. If I had purchased it later in life and with more guitar experience I probably could have set it up or tweaked it to my liking and being useful. I traded it in about a year after I bought it. I've seen many folks say they did not have tuning/stability problems with theirs, so perhaps I just had a lemon ...

This one is mine:
I've had it about 15 years. When I got it (for $180) it had a DUncan pickup of some sort that sounded awesome in the bridge and a T Top Gibson pickup in the neck that was terrible. I put the BG Pure 90's in about two years ago and I love it. For about 3 years this was my main guitar even though I never used the neck pickup....

I bought the one at my my local store.
I like the case.You can use it as a stand for string changes.

I like the no frills, straight up HB rock machine feel it has going for it.

I had a '79 The Paul a few years back that was pretty nice.I found the stock pickups to be a bit muddy and dark.Swapped them out for Duncan '59 [bridge] and Alnico II [neck] pickups to great results.I eventually sold it to a cute hippie chick that loved Bob Marley.
