Very cool Aaron.....
I'm glad you have the opprotunity to play some cool vintage pieces. I used to get my hands on a few ( my old boss had a nice collection of 50's & 60's Gibson archtops ) when I managed some music stores back in the 70's, 80's. You are correct in the statement "Fenders are working mans tools." I think we have a tendancy to forget these all things vintage crazy times! Thanks for the post on that cool 54! I have a 78 Tokai copy of a 54 and it's a nice guitar. I'd sure like to try the real deal though!
We don't stop playing because we get old, we get old becasue we stop playing.
