Modifications

The master volume knob fell off during a gig and couldn't be found... so had to replace it with whatever fit (it was the 90s, hardware was difficult to find).
I removed the pickguard, as I prefer a raw look to my guitars.
The neck pick-up plastic girdle fell off too (plastic broke...).

I acquired Rose brand new in 1993, and she never let me down through hundreds of gigs in France and England, dripping sweat, splashing beer, lighting heat, recordings. She's got that great sound, the pick-ups allow me to go through many nuances. I played her mainly with a 90s Fender Twin, but recently started using a little AC10 Vox. Wonderful for rhythm guitar riffing and middle-of-neck soloing.
