It's a throwback Atomic Playboys style. 1989. The guitar is indeed the same one i played in the Dirty Diana video. The photo was taken by my friend Paul Goebel a brilliant makeup artist who left us way too soon.

1981 Fine Malibus. I believe this was at The Great Gildersleeves on the Bowery. Dig that groovy pick guard my brother did for me.
Throwback Thursday...1981 Fine Malibus at the Savoy NYC. Yes I still own this guitar. A Hamer mini Explorer. My very first endorsement instrument, thanks to Paul Stanley.
