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

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!

*We also discovered you could have multiple people in a PM message, making communications a snap.  Tip-o-the-hat to our admins!  Donate today!

I took the Beatles Special to my CT tribute band practice and it went over great!  I had not told them I was getting it.  Sounded good, plays great.  It will be used in a show for the first time on Thanksgiving Eve.  Hopefully I'll get some good pics and/or video from that one.  We're working on our promo pack and I want that included.

Last home state of Hamer. I will look in to the status of what is and what will be. I know I would like to see Geoff Hartwell, maybe Mike Shishkov,  Diablo, BCRGreg,  either or both Matthes brothers, and perhaps a couple others as it works it's way South to you and me. Maybe a couple have a turn before it leaves the Northeast.

What a cool 5 year journey this has been. Still hanging at Stonge's house although he has not really posted about it. ;) I had hoped he might organize some of you Northeastern guys to get together and play that lil guitar. Maybe WBPS #5 hits the big city next. :)

The Pirate Special has wandered to the big city for a bit after relaxing at casa de stonge.  The Pirate Special dig get to hang with with Nightwolf's Daytona as shown below.

Four months since the last update. Who is the custodian of Special #5 now?

I had this guitar back in the summer or fall of 2015.  I feel like I've lived through three different lives since then, but this guitar is still on the same journey it was when I had it.  It gets very meta when I think about it too much. 

-Checked, and it was winter 2015.  In some ways if flew, and in some ways, it didn't.

Somewhere in this thread way, way back there should be some posts and pics from when I did have a turn.  I'd be more than happy to take another though, and it would give us an excuse to meet up and jam!
