Randy Rhoads Polka Dot


Story about  Sandoval Dot V


Many folks assume Jackson or Wayne created the Polka Dot Flying V, but the truth is it was constructed by Karl Sandoval. It was commissioned on Jul 3, 1979 and completed on Sept twenty two, 1979.


Randy Rhoads used much time to design this specific instrument and he desired a guitar that mixed of both Gibson's tone and Fender's play style, therefore the specifics of this unique guitar, including string size and nut width, are according to his Gibson Les Paul electric guitar, specifically the size of the neck. Randy and Sandoval talked about a lengthy time and finally determined the crocodile headstock pattern, which turned out to be a symbol of the Polka Dot V. The dots had been asked to be put in place on a regular basis instead of randomly that could make it seem more 3-dimensional. These dots were absolutely Polka dot that acquired the name from a specific East Europe music called Polka. It will not suggest the dot looks like jumping notes, but you will find a lot of polka music album covers ornamented with polka dot pattern in a particular time period. Quite simply, this graph was actually derived from the cover for music records. Probably the most popular period of polka pattern is in 50's when ladies enjoyed having on fluffy long skirts, decorated with white colored dots on black background. The renowned Japanese avant-garde artist Yayoi Kusama can be a extremely follower of polka dot, who, suffered from psychiatric difficulties, ever praised the polka dot pattern with one famous word "Earth is one amongst millions of dots!" We checked a lot data and materials about the iconic attributes of this guitar, having the experience of discussing with our buyers, now we can produce not only those smaller dots with the original electric guitar but also comparatively bigger dots for our customers, due to the fact several customers feel a bit dizzy once they have a replica of the original dot pattern, which may be triggered by the smaller sized diameter and high density of the dots.

Sandoval Dot V Neck Joint


The original electric guitar was set-in structured, so that the instrument was fairly stable, when compared with the bolt-on style. We provide two style options of both set-in and neck-through structure. The set-in structure is proper exactly the same as the original guitar; however the neck-through structure raises the stableness of the guitar.

Sandoval Dot V Woods and Inlays


The inlays are usually tie inlays, which means a gentle fashion. The original instrument was built of maple neck, mahogany body and rosewood fretboard. And we strictly pick the same woods as the original guitar.

Sandoval Dot V Hardware


The initial electric guitar employed chrome hardware, and Randy Rhoads altered the frame of the pickups, bridge and nuts into black styles. Therefore we offer 2 alternatives, one is black, another is chrome.


Sandoval Dot V Truss Rod


There was no truss rod upon the genuine guitar, so it really is bothersome to adjust the neck, as Randy regarded. So our guitars all possess truss rods on them. Obviously, if you'd like a fully original structure, we can also create it for you.

Sandoval Dot V Pickups


Karl had DiMarzio P.A.F pickups installed on the electric guitar, but we provide far more possibilities for customers. It is possible to pick the initial DiMarzio P.A.F pickups, or perhaps you can select the a lot more affordable Wilkinson pick-ups which are reliable, cost-effective and quality assured.


If you are 1 with the fans of Randy and considering this electric guitar, our Polka Dot V may be the finest choice of yours, because our guitar could be the most similar custom created guitar strictly following the genuine parameters as well as the original style sketch.
