    My bigger little new shop

    these solar panels are for water heating - its common in Israel in the last 50 years i guess. the big ones which produce electricit are rather new but you still don;t see them in small numbers on private roofs - only large quantities usually in farms etc'

    That cutaway in the block under the bridge appears rendomly on guitars from 62 onwards, some have it some don't. my 64 for example does'nt have it. it would be interesting to compare two guitars with and without it although other specs are different. 335 reasons? u wanna drop by to Tel Aviv...

    Thinline Tele build
