Hey guys. Loooooong time fan of the Sebastian Bach era of Skid Row, and I just saw the video for Slave To The Grind a few minutes ago, and totally forgot how kick ass Dave Sabo and Scotti Hill are.

Anyways, I was wondering if any of you could help me identify Scotti Hill's guitar. He's the rhythm guitarist with the red guitar. Dave Sabo is the one with the Korina Flying V, in "Slave To The Grind".

Slave To The Grind

18 And Life

In both of those videos, you get a pretty good look. In the "18 And Life" video, it's the first guitar you see, and it's painted black, and has what looks like a Hot Rails in the neck position.

I've researched both Scotti and Dave, and there's almost no informationon them, including their gear. Which is sad, because they're both great guitarists.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, guys.

I've got pictures of it, if anybody wants them.

I always kinda suspected it of being a Spector Blackhawk, which I think it is, but I could never tell for sure, that's why I was asking you guys.

Yeah, it does look like a flat top double cut. ^^

Here are some pictures of Scotti and that sexy beast of a guitar;

Nice find, but I'm not really sure that's the one in the pictures. Unless Vaccaro has made a guitar without the split headstock.

And, correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Gretsch only made semi-hollows.

^That is very possible. Nice vid btw.


Thanks, I wish I had made the vid.

Thanks, you guys, I appreciate the help.

gretsch do make a few solid bodys


Yeah, I just saw the Billy Gibbons and Malcolm Young models.

Anyways, I researched a bit, and the one Scotti plays is, in fact a Kramer Spector Blackhawk. They're pretty much impossible to find, so I think I may be stuck with a Warmoth build.

Here's the Kramer;

Yeah, lol.

Too bad they're about as common as fucking dinosaurs nowadays.

Why do they always discontinue the best guitars? And the McRib?

I don't know what that red guitar is but it does look pretty cool. I do know that he is currently playing a Hill guitar from Hill custom Guitars in Cleveland OH and also the natural double humbucker strat that he used to play, which I've been told by Jon of Hill guitars that it's a Jackson. Check out www.hillinstruments.com and you'll see Scotti on there.
