Designed in honour of the great Donald "Duck" Dunn, who was for many years the studio bass player for Stax, playing on such all time favourites as "Knock on Wood", "In the Midnight Hour", "Hold on I'm Coming" and many more. Here's Duck with Steve Cropper...
Rocky, I too have the hardback, really terrific book. By the way, DG gave Guy Pratt a rare Fender bass as a wedding present. Nice gesture. I liked the bit in the book about the Hard Rock Cafe. mistreating the Black Strat

Is "Givson" allowed to do that? With a G in that font, just like Gibson's?
I googled them and took a chance of visiting their website. The site looks more or less legit, but they are even calling their electric guitars "Electric Spanish," as in "ES" (e.g. ES-335). Except Givson's Electric Spanish line includes solid body models.
I hope I didn't get a virus from their site. It was a little too serious to be Onion-like.
While they are located in West Bengal, India, so with Gibson in financial trouble now posting Chapter 11 they probably don't have the money or lawyers to pursue to stop it. There are Chinese Les Pauls that are fake that they slap the Gibson logo on and it hasn't been stopped.
Brewmaster, when I zoomed in on that Rocky Strat, it was too grainy to read how the volume and tone controls were marked. However, my brother has an HSS version of the Rocky Strat and a knob marked "tone" was put back on the volume control, and the "volume" knob is on one of the tone controls. He says the actual volume control is where it needs to be.
That is true henryj the volume knob was put back on in the wrong position, weather it is where it works the volume or not I have not found that out.
The volume knob on strats should be near the bridge pickup were this plain tone knob is in this picture of Rocky.

btw this is going to be my next Beatle guitar replica that I purchase. I'm saving up my money now for one. I would do my own, but there's just too much jazz going on for me to do an excellent job. When I get mine I will fine tune and tweek it.
