    Me too! Holy smokes, what a beautiful find!

    I boarded in the mid to late 70's as well. Built a half pipe in the backyard and did some tricks, but mainly skate boarded for transportation until I could drive.
    Mine was a Hobie Park Rider, with ACS 651 trucks and green Kryptonic wheels with German racing bearings... (Weird that I can still remember this after all these years! )

    Anyway, congrats on the V man, and I'm happy to hear about your wife's recovery!

    Re: NVD My 1959 Flying V

    Just curious...have you taken any steps to clean the guitar, or remove the unsightly grit and grime? Mojo is one thing, but your guitar appears to have accumulations of harmful grit and contamination. Leaving your guitar in this condition may expose it to premature wear and tear, and possible damage to sensitive parts and electronics.

    Yes and no. The electronics and cavities are cleaned, and the body is for the most part. But due to possibly removing more finish, etc... I have decided to not try harsh cleaning techniques. I値l just take tetanus shots yearly.

    Many congrats! I already said so on Instagram when you first announced it, but it's worth saying here again.
