Here is another group shot from the guitar room... this time Robin guitars. The first two are USA and the rest are 80's ESP and Tokai built models. The ones with trems are Robin Logo Floyds... I will continue to build this part of my collection. I like the old Tokai and ESP models about as much as the USA models... :thumbs:

Hi Jon!

It is a Wizard in a Castle with a Crystal Ball. No signature... the former owner said he had contacted Robin owner Dave Wurtz (not sure of spelling) and he remembered it as a factory Graphic that was made in the Texas shop and has an ESP made Robin neck. There was a time in the early 90's that they started USA production and still had ESP made parts. Transition era? Mutt? I don't know - but I bought it because I thought it was interesting enough... The body is "Mosrite" style which is like a flipped over Strat. They used to call that model a "RAIDER" (see the white one behind the Wizard). It sounds and plays fantastic and is also an interesting conversation piece.
