    Ive never confused owning a bunch of high end gear with being some kind of a guitar player I'm a hack and I love guitars !

    He thinks the mirror is a photo of a clown ?

    The Myth: Neat wiring layouts always equate to great-sounding amps.

    The Myth: If I would have lived with MOM & mooched till I was 48 I would play like Clapton !
    Think about it
    won't you ...... Please !

    Great pics, Mason. Congrats again!

    It'd be great to read the 2nd page of TW's note to you ( his penmanship notwithstanding )

    Cheers,

    Absolutely stunning.

    Tom it still looks really minty the way the nitrocellulose still shines. Man what a guitar.

    Nice video at the end too.

    Looks like you were a great steward of that instrument over those 30 years.

    fretboard is light compared to some of the other bursts I've seen w darker braz boards

    dumb question but do all bursts have brazilian rw fretboards?
