David C. Newman
This hot rod began as a Robin that had been rode hard and picked up cheap on eBay. David C. Newman changed the input from a straight in the top to a Strat-style, dropped in a JB-58 with slip switch, changed the neck ("'cause I hated it") and dubbed the final product the Davocaster. “All totals tallied, I've got about $250 in it and have had it about 10 years," he says. "Great player and was relic'd naturally."
