    Please recall a $50 guitar that became my go-to practice guitar,
    and a wonderful guy in Rockford, IL (Wally) that GAVE me two
    guitars. TDPRI thread with details and before pics are HERE.

    The Patriots are done. Say what you will about aesthetics (I go
    back on forth about them) -- they are exceedingly comfortable
    to play, they set up easily and they sound great.

    The one on the left (refinished by Brother) is the only one that looks
    good up close, but they all play great. Wally #2 on the right is going
    to the office to practice on during the workday, Wally #1 goes to the
    jam basement, and main practice guitar stays put (next to my tele).

    Maximum geekery for a VERY minimal outlay of cash.
    Cheers.
