Well friends, after much planning, paying and waiting, the Dr. Rico Stealth Guitar is finished. I'm writing up an "Unca Rico's Story Corner" segment on it and will record some mp3s to accompany this webpage: http://www.timtone.com/GuitarClip29-Dr_Rico.html which is courtesy of the genius luthier, Tim Diebert. This is a temp website and will be worked over to make it a featured segment of his site for TimTone guitars. Initial impressions: This is a helluva guitar. Light, resonant, acoustically alive...the RMC piezo/preamp coupled with this larchwood/cedar design makes this git sound better amplified than my Taylor. Really. Plus synth/VG8. Plus custom wired Duncan antiquities with a "PRS" wiring harness on a 5-way blade swicth (always hated the rotary switch...). Just the thing for loopy mayhem! I know dpc and Esau had Tim build them gits, too. I'm sure they understand... Anyway, I'll post more after Hurricane Floyd clears our neighborhood. Looks like Miami may get spanked. Hasta -> Rico P.S. Check out the inlaid DNA molecule!
