FAVILLA ACOUSTIC
   
Used by Lee: 1984-1986

  • 1984 -- F#F#F#F#EB? (Ghost Bitch)
  • 1985 -- F#F#F#F#EB? (Ghost Bitch)
  • 1986 -- F#F#F#F#EB? (Ghost Bitch)

    NOTES:

  • "Ghost Bitch" was sculpted around this acoustic guitar's ability to emit droning foghorn-like feedback. I'm not sure what tuning this was in, but it's certainly not the E-based tuning I had listed before (which is listed on the 'Society is a Hole' page in the Bad Moon liners). It really sounds like it may be tuned to all F#s, as that's all you hear when he strikes all the open strings! Perhaps the F#AAF#F#F# "ALT DV - GOOD FOR SOMETHING" tuning listed on an early Death Valley lyric sheet? More likely it seems like it's just F#F#F#F#EB.
  • Acoustic dreadnought style
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • Equipped w/ pickup
