 If you need a courier through Michigan, I can help you out worn another bar gig stop one the way through.

...And the Pirate is safely in port up here in Maine.

Heavy sumbitch!  That case is a  thing.

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.

@Toadroller Maybe it's the perspective of that pic, but those guitars don't even look like they were cut from anything close to the same body template

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.

Bil reshaped the Special body. Added a bevel to the top and a bellycut to the back IIRC.

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

Am I the only one seeing this or did those pesky acid flashbacks return?

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.

This place is amazing. I don't care where ya go it's hard to find a place that comes close to The HFC.

A little shot of the two of them hanging out in the back yard with a couple of Special brethren.

Look at that!  The two of them together a thousand miles away and a couple of years back.
