I modified a Wandre Rock oval in about 1975. Spray painted it all white. It would never stay in tune due to the floating brige/pickup assembly, so i made a more stable block with my own wound pickups. I integrated various effects into it as well including Fuzz, Phaser, Flanger and a bucket brigade delay, with ‘state of the art’ short scale slider pots.
Notice the TEAC 4 track reel to reel bought after seeing it on the front of Mike Oldfields sheet music for Mike Oldfields single (Tubular Bells – Theme from the Exorcist.)
About a year or so after this picture i removed the white paint and restored the glossy ‘Waltzer’ paintwork. And sold it!!!!!!!!!! Sob.
