In our inaugural Show Us Your Gear Gallery, we feature the go-to instruments of our readers.
"Blondy is a 1991 Samick factory Korean-made Epiphone Sheraton II. She features Grover Imperial tuners, (not pictured) custom truss rod cover and pickguard, gold pickup mounting rings, gold bridge and tailpiece, gold dome knobs. All new electronics, with treble bleed mod, Sprague capacitors, gold Dunlop Straplocks, and Kent Armstrong hot P-90 humbucker-size pickups. Blondy has been with me since she was new. She spent her first five or six years on a stand in my living room. She's not whole without my Epiphone Valve Jr., Exeter. Exeter was modified by me, and thanks to Dirk Wacker, in part, and is about three years old. Together these are what I play every day. Blondy came together after I had tried several different pickups. Exeter also was remodified several times until I hit the spot Blondy asked for. - Patrick Coleman"
