    Back at 'ya, Al! :thumb:

    I thought I would post these photos I had posted in the vintage "legitimacy" thread, since I don't think there are any other existing photos like them in this thread.

    The only problem I've got with these photo's is which of the buggers to use to replace the full guitar shot that's been my screensaver for years...:laugh2:

    Magic Eric, just magic. :thumb:

    Eric, have you done any demo videos of this guitar?

    Easily the most interesting burst out there, it sure does tell a story

    The Memphis Mojo Burst makes a VERY brief appearance (with The Shades) in the rock documentary about the little known and critically acclaimed Memphis band, Big Star.

    Saw it on Netflix. Check it out if you get a chance, great story.

    Memphis Mojo revisited.

    I just made numerous updates to my website that has been dormant because of technical issues for the last two years.

    I found many additional photos of the ol' gal and posted them. Some newer, some old.

    It's a continuum. Enjoy.
