    The same shot but with the addition of me growing a third hand....!! David Plues could get where gas couldn't...I believe he and Vic have written a book...know nothing about it personally...

    What are the thoughts on that hole on the refin '59? Unusual place.

    Wow, beautiful guitars! I was also impressed with ourmaninthenorth's ability to hold 2 bursts out in that position.

    Now, if they were Norlin'sÖ.
