    usually I prefer Pauls with the pickguard and poker chip....but my oh my does that look beautiful.

    one question: how will you know which way is rhythm and which way is treble?

    Very nice. How do you like the Cock Fight pedal? I wouldn't mind giving one of those a go.

    The fries cannot be considered gear although may be essential. Subway Train could be considered gear but "rolling stock" would probably be more accurate.

    I kicked myself for not grabbing one of these during that GFS feeding frenzy a year & a half ago. Well, I was browsing their shit and there it is. Another Vintage VSA575, or as I refer to them now, wood to hoard.

    I sat on it for a few days & finally said wth. Glad I did. It was the only one.

    I'd like to do something like this ala Geordie Walker's ES295. Obviously it's gonna be a tobacco burst though.

    I wish they would release the VSA575 here in America. I know that hollow bodies aren't the biggest sellers but I think that one could possible do well here.

    Popped up on Facebook for $30, Behringer Thunderbird Bass Amp. Firebird is the guitar version.....but there are a few videos showing players using the Thunderbird for guitar. So I grabbed it. Why? Why not?

    Were these UK only?

    There seemed to be a few on Reverb for sale.

    I might have to fabricate that tailpiece/bridge. Looking at closeups they were pretty crude looking.

    Oh... I got this kit this week too. It's a heavy chunk of ash.

    It's a RAS kit, but it comes from the land of Cozart aka Mississippi.
