Skeleton Guitar Timeline– In Early 1980s
Immediately after Dokken band came back to La from a famous global visit, they started to prepare the video tracking, which made J. Frog 3D Skull n Bones well-known worldwide. In the video tracking, other than as one of the band members, Frog was also the director and the lighting technician. Just before the video producing, the company representative of ESP guitar corporation pasted the ESP decal over the headstock, as the neck is definitely an early Kramer Focus 1000 (Japan made products. In mid eighties, the US Kramer Barreta was produced by ESP Corporation). John was extremely unhappy, but the company representative of ESP held that George promised to promote for them, or they would not allow this electric guitar being used in the video. From then on, many companies began using frogs thoughts and methods.

We spent much time to learn the details of the unique instrument and later-on replicas, to copy the guitar as best as we can. We picked alder in wood selection, just the same as the original guitar, but lately we got requirements from consumers who want mahogany, so we offer two options. We installed on dual-coil pickups in bridge according to the genuine guitar and applied normal Floyd licensed tremolo. The only difference between ours and the original guitar is that we cannot get Johns tooth and hair to attach on the instrument.
