    I have a Les Paul and a couple V's that have bigsby's. Sometimes I don't play them for a coupla' weeks, and some of them months. I keep them in cases when not doing so. I'm always amazed when I pull them out and find them still in tune. That doesn't always happen every time but they are...

    The best theme song ever.

    Is Hawaii Five O. I grew up with Combat and Vic Morrow, Twelve O'Clock High, Dragnet, Wagon Train and so many others. But this was my favorite. The best turn around in the history of television or film. Jack Lord rocked! <iframe width="560" height="315"...
