Ahh! Tremenjous, Unica, simply tre-MENJOUS! Thanx from Buffalo V. -- Always a treat glancing at D. Preston's oscillators, that's for sure.

In the first two images posted by Unica there is a 12 String 335 or variant. I have not seen FZ playing one of these. In fact there must be a great story of the relationship between FZ and the 12 String. I know of about 4 that he is associated with; Rickenbacker,Fender,Hagstrom (which I do not believe he used, just had some photo's taken with by the late Alice Ochs) and this Gibson leaning on the equipment.


There was a Hagstrom 12 sold for £6000 at Christies or Bonhams in about 1995, but it was so clearly a fake as the photo they used did not match the sunburst sold with accompanying gig bag 'barking pumpkin' stenciled on. Same kind of fakery that Drummer Mitch Mitchell got up to with his JHE stencil in London during the 1970's.

Apart from the Genghis and the rather sinister paternal expression, this could be a shot of my dad, me and my younger brother ca. 1975 - in our kitchen 8)

Autographs I got from the FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS who performed on a dutch tv pop show in 1972. It ended up in my Zappa scrapbook because Sneaky Pete Kleinow played pedal steel guitar on FZ's Waka Jawaka - One Shot Deal
