Joe Doe Punkaster Electric Guitar 'Punkaster' Electric Guitar

Joe Doe by Vintage presents...
'punkaster' Electric Guitar
Introducing the 'Punkaster',owned, destroyed and hastily reconstructed by Brandon Hicks. Here is his story...

As soon as he learnt to walk, Brandon Hicks displayed a frightening talent for destruction; burning down the family condo age 5, breaking too many bones to keep count and even shattering his front teeth trying to catch a speeding baseball in his mouth. Having exhausted the patience of his parents and small town residents of Bone Lake, Wisconsin, teenager Hicks was exiled in 1977 and left to travel across America.

Drifting from state to state, more wrecking ball than tumbleweed, Hicks eventually found his spiritual home in Times Square, New York, 1979. Hicks worked a ticket booth at the Wide Eye Peep Show by day and played with his band FistMeetsFace at night. After only a few explosive shows, FistMeetsFace became the must see act on the New York punk scene where each performance would include a smashed guitar, a puddle of blood and, following the after show party, another broken heart.

Strictly limited to 100 pieces worldwide!

A Road Worn Frankenstein Guitar!


American Alder bodyThe Punkaster’s car crash of a guitar body is made from numerous pieces of American Alder. Expect awesome resonance and fantastic roaring sustain! Remember, some things are more than the sum of their parts, just like Brandon’s 35 second song “Riot In My Brain” with its inspired use of police sirens, dogs barking and an exploding jet engine.

Joe Doe and Vintage fitted the Punkaster with a Hard rock Maple neck, complete with mismatched tuners and mismatched dots. Your sweaty palm will love the classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile and the comfort it brings. Plus, flip it over and you’ll get a glimpse into Brandon’s personal life - contact details for emergency lawyers and phone numbers for old girlfriends. The fingerboard is also made from maple too, adorned in the ‘Kate’s phone number!

The Punkaster is laid out with 22 medium profile frets. Brandon’s never needed to go higher than the 10th one though. The neck is topped off with a 43mm Graphite nut, smooth and friction free. Unlike Brandon’s life

Tones Ranging from Subtle to Spiky… Wait... Subtle?


Locking machine headsYou’ll find a powerful trio of Joe Doe designed Single Coils, transplanted from various guitars that Brandon has destroyed over the years. The tones range from subtle to spiky… wait subtle? Not in Brandon’s vocabulary. This trio of screaming pickups is controlled via master volume and master tone pots, with a sneaky five-way pickup selector switch, embedded in an unmistakeable mismatched dual style pickguard.

You’ll also find a tough-as-nails Wilkinson WVC Vibrato bridge, perfect for pig waggling, string diving and note gargling. Treat it like your worst enemy and it will still come back in tune. There’s a set of Wilkinson’s highly durable WJ55 E-Z Lok machine heads to provide simple, sturdy and effective action. Maybe the most dependable thing in Brandon’s life.

A True Collectors Guitar

The ‘Punkaster’ from Joe Doe and Vintage is one of the most unique guitars we’ve seen in quite some time. A guitar with a story as unique as your own, almost every inch of this guitar is screaming to tell you it’s story! From the extremely cool personal messages and scribbles on the neck, to the sweet decals which adorn this truly unique body, this is a true collector’s guitar. Joe Doe and Vintage even included a tough, hard-wearing tweed-styled hard case to keep this road-worn Punkaster safe, and hidden away from the rough and tumbles of the punk life!
