blonde ‘butterscotch’ finish Model 10 one-of-a-kind prototype with T-Armond pickups in P90 Mount. Thank you J Dennis Thomas for the photo.
A dark tobacco burst Model 10 one-of-a-kind prototype with P90 pickups (Tom’s personal favorite). If you see either of these two prototype guitars they are definitely stolen!!
The guitars below are production models, but if you see any of these in or around Frankfurt, Germany they are most-likely stolen!!
