2001 Ernie Ball Mr. Horsepower #6:
First off, let me thank Sterling Ball for the lead on this great instrument. I've wanted one of these for my collection since I first learned about their existance years ago, and I've finally secured one! The Mr. Horsepower guitars were developed with actor/guitarist Christopher Guest who plays Nigel Tufnel in the film "This is Spinal Tap". With chrome exhaust pipes, four pickups, a functioning tachometer, an iron gear shifter as the tremolo bar, and a rubber boot at the bridge capped by a black Eight ball, "the flamboyant working features of this guitar are easily understood by any true Spinal Tap fan," said Sterling. Only 25 of these guitars will ever be built, and I'm lucky to own #6. It remains in new / unplayed condition with all documentation.
