    Here are a few of my favorite pictures of Gpa's NoCaster's adventures up here in Alaska so far.

    So far the only damage that has happened is my volume pot no longer adjusts the volume. Still works, you just have to adjust from amp.
    Haven't had a chance to have it looked at yet.
    More pictures later, and still trying to get a few video/sound clips for you all...

    Thanks! Sorry for the delay, life happens.
    Been taking the nocaster out about every weekend to random jam nights & house parties... So far it's been fun as hell. I love the look & smiles on people's faces when they realize what it is! Then I just hand it to em and tell em to jam away... Priceless!
    Well, maybe not priceless... I have to replace/repair my volume pot... But hey, I'm good!

    I'd take the same route, if one came into my possession. They were meant for playing, not decorating walls.........:D I'm sure your grandpa would be happy that its legacy continues.
