Here's my new Blue! A 10% smaller body with Mini humbuckers. Perfect for a 5 ft 6 guy like me.

Hm, I have to figure out how to attach the pics...

I use Dr.Z Z28 and Frenzel FM-5E3DP3.
Where can I hear you and your Gibby?
'Pace a voi' [biggrin] Who else would use the Italian citation?
Nothing's wrong with your English, it's not my mother tongue either.

Oh, hehe, I'm pretty absent-minded, sorry. I didn't remember I had that italian phrase in my signature [biggrin]

Well, this is the only recording i've ever uploaded on youtube. Has been recorded with one of those microphones integrated in headphones so the quality is rather horrific.
The guitar is my 1985 Explorer directly plugged in a Blackstar HT-5H

Very cool color. Was it custom or a factory color?

Cheers pfox, it is a factory color, this one is 'studio blue', my older son has one in 'studio copper', I think they discontinued those with minibuckers in '03-'04, but I may be wrong...
The ash body model had the 496R/500T, the others had ceramic mini buckers...
Here's some facts I found on ZZ Sound

Nice! Who made the backing track? The voice doesn't sound like Plant.

More screaming Explorer, this time with my simple backing loop on Boomerang III.
I just got the 'Rang III, I have to figure out how it works. Pretty cool thing, never mind my lousy playing!

Woa, cool. I didn't know those guitars existed. The mini humbuckers sound pretty sweet. Happy NGD. [thumbup]
