The Pepto guitar is considered one of the best sounding blackknife guitars according to Geoff Gould. Like someone mentioned Weir started playing the guitar in 1988. The pickups had the single coils squeezed together like his Cocobolo guitar but a couple months ago the pickguard broke and they switched the guard back to a standard strat style pickguard. Weir also wanted to get rid of the graphite neck and the neck was changed to a custom bolt on neck like the Genesis style necks. They still have a graphite rod through the neck just like the genesis.
