  1. Been playing off & on for over 40 years, current band is Mongolian Death Wyrm, prog, fusion & Chicago blues. Primarily a Gibson & Marshall config.

  2. I've owned a black Invader for a few years, & although I didn't care for the bolt on neck @ first, it's now my primary gig guitar. Mahogany body & neck w/ ebony fingerboard, zebra looking Sonex 180 PUs, Grovers. Has great sustain, plays like a dream & for some reason the PUs are hotter than the other velvet bricks I've heard. I played this along w/ a $2500 LP w/ PAFs from the same year & gave the LP back. They played the same, but the Invader had better tone & gain.
  3. Mine is an '85 black, mahogany body, neck may be maple, ebony fretboard PUs are Sonex 180 Deluxe. They appear to be exactly the same w/ the neck mounted the reverse of the bridge. One difference is the PU selector is on the neck side of the knobs, where The Paul selector is located. This has become my primary gig axe, has better sustain & hotter PUs than the LPs of the same era.
