  1. Damn! Just missed out on that Robin Baritone!
  2. I have owned (and probably still own) an embarassment of guitars over the years. I don't think I've owned a guitar better than my Shishkov DC, and that only barely nudged out my Shishkov Ultimate, which topped my favorite Hamer Standard. The DC does it all, never goes out of tune, sounds and plays great, and the neck carve fits my hand like it was carved specifically for it.
  3. Gigolo Aunts You Am I Teenage Fanclub Superdrag Starbelly Cliff Hillis Greenberry Woods The Rooks P. Hux (Parthenon Huxley) (Just to name a few great ones that haven't been named) Obviously, stuff like The Knack, Romantics, Rubinoos, etc. - lots of classic stuff from the late '70s and early '80s.
  4. Either should work. You could also order a set of those screw retainers.
  5. Musikraft is pretty much dead-on Fender spec, although sometimes their "seconds" on eBay are drilled for Tele on a Strat heel or vice versa, so may be slightly off. Where is the body from?
  6. I haven't heard of that before - do you have a source? A former co-worker/friend went to Williams with him and still kept in close touch over the years. I could check with her, as she would definitely know if something like that was true.
  7. This one hit hard - always a fan of Adam’s stuff in FOW, Tinted Windows, Ivy, etc. insane talent and a nice guy.
  8. Yes - Black, Ferrari Red, Candy Apple Red, ice Blue Metallic, Midnight Blue Metallic, White, Yellow, Orange, Surf Green, all the Graphics...
  9. Price isn't bad at all. If I was in the market for a player Special, I'd snag that one.
  10. Here's another one: Alan Merrill (songwriter and original artist who recorded "I Love Rock n' Roll" died from Coronavirus complications earlier today. He was 69 years old.
  11. John Prine not doing well either... https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/john-prine-covid-19-symptoms-974909/
  12. Jack - the Weber arrived while I was out yesterday...THANKS!! I’ll give it a go this weekend. As always, you RAWK.
  13. One of the coolest spalted tops I've ever seen!
