My old Arvidson Strat has finally found its way home after 25 years!
It was my main guitar on my first solo tour in ’87 (“Total Control”) and the “Face the Truth” album as well as the Don Dokken’s “Up From the Ashes” album and tour.
It has also featured on many videos in the late ’80s so I’m very happy to have had it back after so long, thank you so much to Francesca and Mark (Mark Cameron Amplification) for making it possible for me to reunite with my old “friend”!


  1. What pickups were used on Up From The Ashes? Super 3 bridge?

  2. Hi John,
    I was just wondering, is this the guitar with the scalloped neck?
    And, you had a wonderful Schechter guitar.
    Was that one scalloped too.
    Rock on John!
    You’re my hero since 1986 πŸ˜€πŸ™πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘πŸ€˜
