Stand still ladie!


David Gilmour tiene una stratocaster dorada que porta el numero de serie #0001. Y aunque no es la primera strat hecha definitivamente es muy vieja y debe tener más de 50 años. David Gilmour se la compró a un roadie suyo que se la había comprado a Seymour Duncan por 900 dólares. No se sabe cuanto pagó Gilmour por la strat pero creo que el roadie dijo que era suficiente como para retirarse. Estoy escribiendo esto de memoria porque no recuerdo donde lo leí. Me parece que también la guitarra tenía una dedicatoria entre dos anónimos en algún lugar.

Dick Dale invented surf music in the 1950's. Not the '60's as is commonly believed. He was given the title "King of the Surf Guitar" by his fellow surfers with whom he surfed with from sun-up to sun-down. He met Leo Fender the guitar and amplifier Guru and Leo asked Dale to play his newly creation, the Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar. The minute Dale picked up the guitar, Leo Fender broke into uncontrolled laughter and disbelief, he was watching Dale play a right handed guitar upside down and backwards, Dale was playing a right handed guitar left handed and changing the chords in his head then transposing the chords to his hands to create a sound never heard before.

Leo Fender gave the Fender Stratocaster along with a Fender Amp to Dale and told him to beat it to death and tell him what he thought of it. Dale took the guitar and started to beat it to death, and he blew up Leo Fender's amp and blew out the speaker. Dale proceeded to blow up forty nine amps and speakers; they would actually catch on fire. Leo would say, 'Dick, why do you have to play so loud?' Dale would explain that he wanted to create the sound of Gene Krupa the famous jazz drummer that created the sounds of the native dancers in the jungles along with the roar of mother nature's creature's and the roar of the ocean.

Leo Fender kept giving Dale amps and Dale kept blowing them up! ...

May 21, 1998 a historical day for Disneyland, Dick Dale was chosen to be the person to highlight the grand opening of Tomorrowland by standing on top of Space Mountain (without the use of a safety harness) with his Gold Fender Stratocaster guitar (the beast) and play for all to hear throughout Disneyland "Ghost Riders"& "Miserlou" - Dale's music has gone down in the annals of Disneyland history.

Esa frase pasara a la historia,junto con la rastrera campaña de exterminio del ejercito verde,como una infamia. Ah en cuanto al post, las guitarras son chiiidas
