In our inaugural Show Us Your Gear Gallery, we feature the go-to instruments of our readers.

"My #1 guitar is a Frankencaster built in the '70s. The neck is a '64 with lots of Mojo, the body is from Mighty Mite when they first got started, and the electronics are a combination of the '64 Strat and Mighty Mite. It's wired Bakersfield-style with the center position for the bridge pickup and the fourth position a combination of bridge and neck. The guitar just ooooozes soul! - James, The Deadlies"
