Vegas Vulcan



"I am the owner of the 1st (ser# VV2007001). Jon has hand-crafted a wonderful guitar. The sustain is great, due to the nice mohagany body.
The DiMarzio PAF's really help recreate the familiar sound (from a BlueOyster Cult perspective) of Buck Dharma. The neck is very playable,
especially from the perspective of how the guitar body sits when strapped on. I found that it seems to create a feeling of being able to
easily move your hand up the fretboard to reach those high "Dharma"notes. Other fine details and hardware accessories really adds a great touch to this legendary look.

So, if you're a BOC fan or someone looking for something a bit different for a new guitar, why not have Jon hand-craft you this beauty."

Inspired by long time BOC fan Mark (Vegas4BOC). Based on a custom vulcan design of 30 years gone by and brought back to life by
J.C. Harper - Luthier. Buck Dharma of Blue Oyster Cult had and played two of these guitars in the 1970's. I've added my own improvements and unique touches to the design, shape and construction making this very much a one of a kind classic.
