A friend of mine has one of those.... An Ibanez Flying V, which was made for a few years before Gibson sued them. Apparently he got it brand new for Christmas when he was about 14 or so and he still plays it today. Kudos to him for keeping it all these years! He recently bought a second one just to have for parts or as a backup and it was pretty expensive now.

My best friend got an Aria Pro II Les Paul for Christmas when we were 14-15. Black w/ gold hardware and the Gibson open book head stock that Gibson balked about. Wonder if he still has it?

Grampa gifted me a 1964 Univox hollow body electric when I was 15. Sunburst. Still have it. Tremolo bar is about 1' long.
When he died My Aunt gave me his natural 1994 Epiphone Sheraton. I don't remember him having it, but he could play pretty well.

Is that shaped like a 335 or a Gretsch? Do you have a pic?

Not sure. But I have pics if they aren't skewed due to angle taken.

Thanks! The reason I asked is that I have a Gretsch shaped '60s Univox that seems to be pretty rare. I bought it decades ago and it was already pretty hacked up.

I'll have to keep an look out for one similar. Univox made some nice looking guitars that survived well. One went through my favorite shop a few months ago. Wish I'd have committed it to memory. Nice looking piece. It looks stately.

Looks like mine is the HR-2.

TBH I respect helicopters and their crew. Many a downed pilot praised them for being rescued.


Takes all kinds of brave souls. Sir I sincerely do appreciate you and your service to this country. My unit(s) did a lot of training (mostly with NG) in downed pilot training, never actually had to do it myself.

The one type of flight that always raised the hair on the back of my neck was NOE under NVGs. Had to be qualified, didn't like it but, it was part of the job. Wires are not yer friend.

Found an Epiphone SG G-400 PRO, which just means it's got a set neck, coil taps on both pickups, alnico magnets in the pickups, Wilkinson machineheads to mimic Gibsons and the same trapezoid fretboad inlays like a Gibson. It's in mint condition.

Epiphone top. Still has the coil tap stickers around the volume knobs.
