Thanks, I enjoyed that!
Cheers, I enjoyed that too.
Popped up on my feed last night. When I saw the length I rolled my eyes, but turns out I was completely engrossed. Very cool video. I had an SE that didn’t really fit my musical needs, but was an exceptional player.

Ya that was very interesting! Want another one. Just picked up Custom 24 real nice player.
