    The Crown - Netflix

    Love this one. Love 20th century history of the English monarchy. Can't believe how well John Lithgow plays Winston.

    Bruce Conte (Tower of Power) '57 GT

    Always loved ToP. Their guitar player Bruce Conte played this '57 GT, beat to crap but still beautiful. Anyone have more info on this one? And what is up with that bridge?!!! This one is worthy of Collector's Choice status.

    The day after Thanksgiving …...

    Company is gone, sitting here in my rocker with the laptop on my lap, drinking coffee and surfing MLP. I'm not doin' crap today. I'm not going anywhere. When I get up the gumption I'm going to do a set up on my Deluxe and play it until my fingertips bleed. The weather here in Manistee, MI is...

    Love this Strat!

    From Wildwood, master built, Braz board and tall dollars, but DANG it's purrrty. They call it "Cadillac Green" I love these late 1960s reissues with 4-bolt necks and large headstocks.

    NGD: 1978 LP Pro ... I believe they call it "mojo"

    New to me '78 Pro Deluxe. Was a total compulsion buy but after handling it and playing it, I'm glad I bought it. I bought it with the intention of having it refinished as a GT (a finish offered on the LP Pro) but was threatened with mayhem if I did by other MLP members, ;) so I'm leaving it as...

    Super nice 1969 NOS Strat, G-Brat

    When I was into Strats this is the one I wanted. Pure Hendrix. NOS, none of that relic crap. Even has the Fender "F" on the neck plate. Love it.

    Refinish question vis a vis binding ... Pics Up. Follow Link

    Just bought a '78 LP Pro Deluxe - black (will do an NGD post soon). Been played a lot with much natural relicing (bumps, dings, finish worn away at the edges and neck). I want to have it refinished in either black or gold top. The binding has the coolest natural yellowing I've ever seen and I...

    LP Deluxe in Fender Shell Pink ...

    I kind of like it. Always thought an LP would look good in the old Lake Placid Blue too. What'ya think?
