Alvarez Dana Scoop: The newest to the family (56k BEWARE)

Well as promised here is the better pics of the little oddball I picked up this morning.. I am in love with it, its such a conversation piece and the active circuitry is sooooo amazing in front of a tube amp.. It will drive the cleanest of amps into a high gain screamer..

I love it.. And to think I found it dead mint, for $200

Pickups are mounted behind the backplate and underneath the springs for the floyd.. Awesome..

That's one of the best looking Scoops I've seen.

The only guitar you can strum from the back!


Hows the tone? I always though the big cut would hack up the tone...

The tone is on the border of complete insanity but is so precise sounding.. Palm mutes and palm muted runs sound so much better than anything I have played in the last 5 years.

Its def. a one trick pony this thing was made for one thing and thats to just wail balls out... No way around it.. Its not made for jazz thats for sure..

Damn thats a nice guitar!
I am really digging it in red too. I may have to keep one eye out for one of these things in the future. They are just too wierd not to have one!
