Sambora’s Comment on Sambora Guitar
Dennis Berardi was carrying out really nicely with Kramer at that point thanks to Eddie Van Halen. We have got to be buddies, and he asked me if I preferred to perform a model, and I said 'Sure'. Thus I tried to set something jointly that is going to give me the dexterity I required. It had stars upon the fretboard, a Floyd Rose, and DiMarzio pick-ups. I performed them every night, too. Someone called Rod Schoepher, who had also produced me a few custom instruments, would adjust them to my liking when they came out of the factory, since Kramer's custom shop wasn't genuinely up and running; the complete idea of custom shops wasn't occurring yet.
