    Thank God it comes with a strap... none of my straps are long enough to get the proper "below the knees" stance.

    Pretty cool. There's a lot of sweat and mojo in that guitar. Alas, I'm going to have to save up a bit longer if I'm going to be able to afford it.

    Now you can see why your friends laugh behind your back at your **relic-ed** guitar.

    A guitar that has been actually played at 2000 shows, looks nothing like your relic job....

    All down strokes will do that to a guitar.
    One of my favourites:

    Joey Ramone had one of the most melancholy voices in rock IMHO.

    '65 slab body Ventures II. Lots of mods. I'm surprised Daniel Rey ended up with it and not Linda.

    Johnny sold all his gear at the end of his career, or almost all of it.
    Maybe he sold this beauty as well...

    Johnny always said it was just a tool he went to work with. No emotional attachment.

    Neat guitar. I'd be curious to know how it's wired. I think I saw it somewhere that the neck pickup is just a cover and the switch isn't wired up. It's a Dimarzio in the bridge. Legendary!

    Odd style, this guy. He didn't move his arm, just his wrist. All downstrokes done at high speed. It's amazing he didn't get injuries.
