Certificate of Authenticity
This is the very rare and highly sought after Dude-O-Caster, not an ordinary guitar by any means. Crafted to meet exacting standards, or maybe just close enough for gubmint work, the Dude-O-Caster is cobbled together to make the ultimate instrument (gee-tar) that would simply kick the hind quarter of any of those celebutards or American Idol wanna-bees who may have thought that their axes kicked ass.
This coolest of cool guitars was designed on the fly…No, not that fly! The basic concept was sketched out on paper (Photoshop actually) and evolved from a simple old school idea into a magical tone monster.
Don’t let the tonge-in-cheek, one-of-a-kind details fool ya, this is a killer guit-box! Dude-O-Casters are specifically designed with an “in your face, bang, zoom, to-the-Moon-Alice look”….Maybe not purdy to some, but to the select few who are fortunate to own one of these bad boyz”, there is an indescribable beauty that is only in the eyes of the beholder…Kinda like that .45 ACP which you’ve been carryin’ around concealed for the last 25 years. Some people just won’t appreciate…But F*** ‘EM!….what the hell do they know anyway!
Prototyping the DOC was a monumental undertaking, second only to the Manhattan Project. Hopefully, the Dude-O-Caster won’t be as big of a bomb, but it is guaran-damn-teed to create a ruckus wherever it may be! New techniques had to be developed and mastered, specifically acid etching logos onto medallions….Now how manly is that?!
The DOC features bead blasted stainless bridge and aircraft grade anodized aluminum hardware, and Lindy Fralin Blues Hybrid pups….No sissy stuff here!….Chrome don’t getcha home, Bucko!
DOCs were conceived and developed with good old fashioned ‘Merican ingenuity, blood, sweat, and tears (sounds like a good name for a band). Well, not any blood was spilled, but maybe some tequila. The DOC is made by the hands of a highly skilled American patriot, not some little, fuzzy-headed, foreign, comm-u-nist bastard that eats his lunch with little sticks.
The front of the gee-tar sports the logos of the Angry White Dude and an etched medallion features an iconic figure from the greatest movie ever, which serves as the inspiration for everything AWD. While accenting the famous movie quote graphic, the stars on the back represent the great state of Texas and all of the super-sexy stud dogs who pick a little guit’ box in the spirit of Davey Crockett and Stevie Ray….(The stars also camouflage some flaws in the nitro finish.)
I’m clinically depressed by the fact that the DOC is a lefty. This means I can’t play the shit out of it. So I enlisted the help of that most awesome southpaw twang-master, Chris Buhler (who actually met the supreme lefty, Jimi, back in the day). Chris took the DOC for spin around the block before it was shipped out on its trek to Tejas. Chris kicked the tires, laid down some killer honky-tonk licks, tickled the frets with some sweet jazz and paid homage to “Skydog” and proclaimed the Dude-O-Caster to be the “Tone Monster of all Tone Monsters!”….High praise indeed!
