    That's got to be the biggest entrance ever into this place. Nice guitar. I checked out your website. Looks good. I notice it's missing a link to here in the "Guitar Forums" category?

    Welcome to MLP.

    True!

    Unfortunately I have had ongoing issues with ericernest.com.

    abalonevintage.com has most of the updates for 2009. :thumb:
