“Roc Pro 1000 full stack & Big Apple Strat”

Redd Kross is a band that’s been around for more than 30 years with varying levels of visibility. 2012 sees the group releasing Researching the Blues, their first album since 1997’s Show World which is referenced in this full page ad. I’ll admit to not being hip to the great band when this ran in Guitar Player, December 1997.

Guitarist Eddie Kurdziel is shown here with the Big Apple Strat and Roc Pro 1000 amp, both of which were discontinued in the early 2000s. Kurdziel, sadly, was discontinued in ’99 when he overdosed on heroin.
