Happiness is an 8-string, fan-fretted, multi-scale Strat. This one, built around 2017, is the SS8 Stormtrooper by Oakland Axe Factory (now Drinkwater Guitars). It's 25.5" to 27", stainless steel frets, ebony f/board, alder body with Instrumental Pickups custom wound by Ethan Spaulding. It's an absolute blast to play and always puts me in a new spot musically. I love it.
This one goes out to my friend, Tom Drinkwater.
