Paul W:

"- I just finished this one; prototype solid state LS. It's a converted new FG 330. There's a box with an umbilical like the originals, but it also has a footswitch to turn the circuitry on and off, and an LED to indicate the "on" condition on a darkened stage. There are a total of 15 LEDs.

I've been working on it for a few weeks on and off (pun intended)..."

Dale Fortune, another very skilled Lightshow builder has made this Model LS330 Prototype (?).

Does it get any cooler than that? I just don't think so. Nice one, thanks for sharing.

Great work Paul,
I hope many people will be attracted to owning such a beautiful Baby.
This seems to be kind of modern solution for the old light show guitars that are history today ( and very $$$..).
Prices for original complete guitars are in the 20K - 40K range.
I am thinking of buying one of yours Paul but the bad thing is that I don't perform in public and the light show will pass unseen.
Too bad!!!  8)
