    Can't see the video - just drops me on facebook mobile, but no vid

    I have a really beat up one of these - It has been heavily gigged, bashed around and scratched etc, but I still love it.

    I didn't pay much for it, but I used it enough that I needed to do a refret and replace the bridge (a piece cut from an old wooden school ruler did the job).

    It has been replaced in my gigging by a Stuart Wailing custom resonator, but it sure as hell isn't getting sold any time soon.
