Forgot about Omar, yeah! I feel like by the time TMV started he was using other stuff? But yeah I definitely remember him using a Super Sonic in ATDI, but even then like ~4 years ago Vistas were still pretty cheap.

Nick Rinehart is from Tera Melos and has a popular YouTube channel about guitar pedals. I think he plays in Goblin Cock, too.

Speaking of, those original Vista Super Sonics being listed for $1,000 - $1,500 or anything more than, like, $500 is a disgrace to the Christian world

The only person of any kind of higher stature I’ve ever seen playing one is Nick Rinehart and he’s not exactly at Kurt Cobains popularity level.
Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of At the Drive In/The Mars Volta used a Super Sonic for a really long time before he started using Ibanez guitars.
Mars Volta were hugely influential a decade ago, when he was using them. At least amongst the musicians in my region. They were getting overplayed for a while by everyone I knew.

No idea who Nick Rinehart is, although I probably heard of his band from a thread here.
One important thing (if I’m remembering correctly) is that those SuperSonics were MIJ. Their quality was pretty good which justifies their price hike in my mind.

Yeah, they're MIJ, but it took years for "online guitar culture" to recognize that. They were viewed as inferior Squiers by the majority of people who had never played them.

Similarly, I bet the Chinese CV Squiers will soar in price. They were incredibly well-made. I had two strats from that line, which I got stupidly cheap (like $200USD). I've just never bonded with strats, so I eventually moved them on, but I bet they'll be going for $1000 in 10 years.

Tera Melos are fantastic. I am really bad at remembering names, and feel half dumb now, as I have had their music in my collection for years.
I don't watch much YouTube gear channels, but I will check his out, as the guitar style is not the usual YouTuber blues wankery.
