Tony's Gold Watch

For the past 15 years or so, I've been playing in a parody rock band that was started by a couple of professors at the Oklahoma State University School of Vet Med. They've been writing parody versions of classic rock tunes to fit their curriculum, and every year we play a big show for all the vet med students.  It's a really great time, and I've always enjoyed being a part of the group.

This past summer, one of the founding members retired from the university and the band, and I wanted to do something special for him as a thank you for his friendship and for allowing me to be part of the fun.  There was once a time when a company would give you a gold watch at retirement, but that wouldn't have been nearly rock-n-roll enough for Tony, so that's where this guitar comes in.

Here are the specs:

  • Ribbon sapele body
  • Flamed maple top
  • 5-piece neck made from flamed maple and sapele
  • Richlite fretboard
  • Hand-wound PAF neck pickup and noiseless Tele bridge pickup
  • Wilkinson bridge
  • CTS pots
  • Switchcraft switch
  • Gotoh tuners

  • This is an amazing guitar! I love it. The wood and finish are exquisite. It plays great, and the combination of neck humbucker pup and bridge Telecaster single coil pup gives the guitar a wide tone range. Roger Cowan, you are The Guitar Creator Man! Thank you!
