This guitar was made by Rick Toone, a luthier obsessed with ergonomics in guitars; this is evident by the radically awesome body sytle.
Here is a boy shot showing off the H-S-S pickups, tremolo unit, and knobs. Darren's Javelin body shape looks like a cousin of this guitar!
Huge backplate! Also, you can see the ergonomic shape some more.
Close-up of the H-S-S set up. Looks like Dimarzio's single coils maybe?
Here is a close-up of the neck joint. So sexy.
This guitar resides now with a man named Goran, who lives in Sweden. I can say I'm extremely jealous of him! It was built in 1993 was Toone's personal instrument, but I guess that Goran convinced him that he was the better owner, or just wagged enough money under his nose. I don't know. To top it all off, here is a video Goran made to an instrumental version of "Fire"(which is pretty awesome,with some soulful leads), written by Mr. Toone and performed/recorded with the Starfish:

Jealous, yes. This only makes me love walnut as a body wood even more!
