I love the smell of nitro in the morning.
Posting pics is very easy now- drop and drag- except in Backstage it appears. heads up. Profanity optional.

Hello mrgibson01...I saw your old post regarding 1961 humbucker, single slot brass screws in base, no decal. I have an identical one pulled from a 1961 ES-355. Cover has been off: has the square in the circle. Are you still active??
