1978 Balestra Vulcan
New York luthier Juiliano Balestra created this Gibson-Explorer-inspired "Vulcan" guitar.

The Vulcan features 2 DiMarzio humbucking pickups.

This guitar was played on "Mirrors," "Cultösaurus Erectus" and "Fire of Unknown Origin." and used extensively live.

Buck had two Vulcans, one was given to a former crewmember. The other was stolen in 1980, and in June 2002, resurfaced again after all these years for auction on eBay.
