Being that it is close to 2 years since Andrea's passing, just wanted to thank you Mike B. for keeping the guitar wreath alive for him.

for Andrea and Mike: Go Johnny Go!

Hi guys taking some time off from posting but here are two guitars i picked up in the last few weeks.I finally got my friend to sell me his 1957 Trade Show LP JR with the White Pickguard and Knobs--super cool and great sounding Jr if you are into Jr's it is one of the rarest i guess.I also bought a 1965 ES-355 Mono with an amazingly large neck on it.It is the 9/16's size in width but nice and fat and gets larger and larger as you go up the neck.The guitar really is almost like New.Thanks guys and talk to you soon.Mike B.

Congrats, Mike, and welcome back! I was actually thinking of PMing or emailing you to make sure you were ok, because I hadn't seen you post in a while. I hope all is well.
