Glad to hear the guitar made it safely! I delayed shipping it by two weeks so I could play it at practice a couple more times. There's definitely magic in that one. Here's a few more case pics I took a few weeks back.

Oh,

He’s just hanging out with his younger cousin.

The *ahem* acoustic voice is really sharp, upper register.  Plug him in and that volume knob will keep driving your pre-amp tubes harder, and harder, and harder.  An ugly duckling to be sure, but that's the point.  A rocker.

So WPS is in Nashville getting a lil tuneup and rehab. Understand that this guitar may have seen better daze but is still worth strumming and even RAWKIN' Out on. It IS NOT a Sweetheart of a guitar in anyway. You may play it for a day or a week but a couple months might be pushing it. Trust? Sure, I got nothing to lose. I already know people suck sometimes and being burned by a person close would be to classic of a storyline. I have faith that those that get the guitar will pass the guitar on and will continue to do so. HOWEVER, should you decide you just GOT TO HAVE IT, well that can be arranged also and the tour will end as such.

^^^^^

From Gene waaaaay back at the beginning.  It's got a Hamer headstock and a whole lotta *character* to it.  Let's call them second cousins.  Twice removed.

Did he just pose with it? Strum it? Plug it in? :)

Just some unplugged riffs.  It was after the show, so no time for a real test.   He thought it could be set up as a cool slide guitar and was fascinated with the case as well

I had my way with Bil's special, but I sure would like to see that Beatles one come back to me.

That can be arranged, if you'd like.  :)  Same price as when you sent it to me, whatever that was.  It was reasonable, as I recall.

Today @tomteriffic's Beatles Special begins its journey home, but it's taking the long way round, stopping in with @tommy p for a while to sit in on some gigs with his Cheap Trick tribute band.  Best of all worlds- TommyP wanted some time with it and we were able to work it out pretty easily.*  

I hope we get some gig shots!
