    Re: Spruce top wood close-out

    Thanks for the heads-up, Mike. Looks like it's only the Engelmann they are closing out on. Good to know.

    Re: Attic Find

    Look at the wear marks on the neck. Doesn't it look like it may have been strung in 5 courses, not six? I wish the nut or tailpiece was present so we could see how it was strung.

    Re: 1909 A4 Gibson Factory Revamped

    If I was looking for one, I'd sure be interested in this one. Wouldn't have to worry about it as much as an one in original condition. Could put a pickup in it without feeling guilty about it. ...

    +1 Toni. Same sentiment from me.

    I think the Peace graphic on the landing page today would make a great sticker or tee shirt. Let's all work toward peace in our communities, wherever they may be.
