Man, I`m loving all the old pics from Gil @ Southworth. Thanks mbowen. I remember lusting after a '54 Strat and a Black '63 Strat w/gold hardware he had for sale about 15 years ago. I think they were around 10k...I wish I could have afforded them back in those days.

With all due respect... Fender ain't no "other" guitar company, just as Gibson.

Both are the GREATEST electric guitar makers of all time!

Long live both, as they are dreamwrights of us all!
