    Yes, the trusty AR. It is a great shooting rifle. And, thanks!

    Yeah, the anticipation will make it even better. :naughty:

    They'll be back up on the 30th.

    I was running a bunch of sale ads this month with lots of photos, thus... bandwidth exceeded a bit earlier in the month than usual! :D

    Thanks dude! I decided to go with a few less chips, but a bit more rub through. I'm really happy with how it came out. I also checked the finish - it is hard to capture on camera, but I will one of these days. It came out great.

    Damn Dice. I'm having the hardest time keeping up with your gear swapping and new projects. I've gotta come over to you place soon and check this stuff out. Great job on the guitar. It's beautiful. Did George set it up or has he seen it yet?

    Geoff - you do need to stop over sometime! I think I'll be doing a bit of a blues jam over here in the next couple of weeks. (May 23 or so).

    I did take this one over to George - I had it set up well enough that it didn't need anything done to it. He told me that it was a nice job considering my amateruness and the fact taht I did it with rattle cans! :laugh2:

    You'll have to check this guitar out - it is pretty killer. The '67 Gibson 335 has come and gone since I saw you last - so you did miss out on playing that thing. It was amazing!

    Thanks again - and I'll be in touch.
