My dad has told me that a friend of his from college, Tom Wilson, designed a guitar in the 80s which was used by some fairly well known people. I would love it if someone could help me figure out what that was.

lol.
I've got something in my front pocket for you.
Why don't you reach down in my pocket and see what it is?
Then grab onto it, it's just for you.
Give a little squeeze and say: "How do you do?"

actually that name kinda sounds familiar but i cant remeber where its from?? who did he build stuff for?? if you say kiss or something im gonna laugh

You're asking a VERY Vague question, tons of guitars were popular in the 80s, we have no name of the designer, nor the people who used them. How the hell are we supposed to know, give us some more info.


EDIT- Didn't read the post right, sorry, Tom Wilson, got it.

Sorry, that's all I know. He didn't do that as his career, I think he's an architect or something. Tom Wilson is also the name of a guitarist for some band, I think.

I just did quite a bit of googling and wikipedia'ing... I haven't found anything... There are ton's of Tom Wilson musicians though...

I believe my family has a standing invite to his place in N.H. and we're planning on meeting up with him at some point in the near future, so I guess I'll just ask him. However, if he says BC Rich, I'm going to force my family to cut ties with him.

Random facts you say! Volvo backwards is Ovlov, ovlov in Latin means motion hence why the car company is called Volvo. Volvo originated in Gothenburg Sweden as did In Flames and In Flames use guitars.

In Soviet Russia, 80's guitar designs Tom Wilson.


Yeah, I did some google'in and some wiki searching and I couldn't find anything about the subject either. There really are quite a few Tom Wilson's out there.
#25
Could it possibly be Tom Anderson? He does custom work out of California now and I think he had some relation to Schecter back in the day before it was bought by the Japanese.

les paul, he made the les paul, guys.

I may be totally wrong, but wasn't Mr. Les Paul the one who started experimenting with 'The Log', a solidbody design? It means he made the prototype. Plus, if he designed it, why did he dislike the original Les Paul, now named SG?

No, he made the Les PAul, and then they disigned the SG, which he didn;t like.

I will concede your point, sir, and add that the body designs are still badass, it's just that they sound like farts.

Since he designed it, wouldn't you respect him, since I doubt he has anything to do with what wood and pups BC Rich uses on their lower end guitars.

I would think not...apparently these were built by a fairly major company, and played by some classic rockers on comeback tours and the like.

Actually, you're wrong.
Volvo means "I roll" in Latin, which is conjugated from "volvere".
