    I love the fact that my partner (read: Spousus Maximus), is a financial planner and thanks to her, I am not spending our retirement years in a cardboard box. I've picked up a few Fenders and others over the years, but now these are my faves. I had the tele converted to the Nashville style. The Billy Bo is a custom build.

    It was fabricated locally by Brown Bear guitars - Jesse Brown. I picked all the materials. Ebony fretboard, Kluson locking tuners, Dusenberg trem and McNally coil splitting pups. The idea was to have the both worlds represented. IMG_1392.jpeg IMG_4170.jpeg IMG_1392.jpeg IMG_4170.jpeg IMG_4172.jpeg IMG_4184.jpeg IMG_4191.jpeg IMG_4192.jpeg IMG_4216.jpeg IMG_4570.jpeg .

    All very nice guitars. The double cut Gold Top is my weakness.

    Congratulations!

    The DC LP “Goldie” is really sweet. Stole it from a friend who decided to cull his herd. It is a 2001. Very light, chambered body, but a ton-o-tone.
