Re: New Reading: Mike Slubowski Articles

Mike thanks for the very informative article on the LP custom, as a youngster ( in the 50's) i always looked at that guitar in awe and knowing that it was so far out of reach only hieghtened my excitement everytime i saw some one playing one. Thanks again for providing the information on its history.


peace
