    Wow, so very impressive, Rick. Congrats on a great build. I forgot all about "mud switch", I never ever touch it on mine, because, well, it sounds muddy. I suppose they had in mind switching from rhythm to lead quickly or something, but I just switch pickups on mine. CAn't wait to see what you do for an encore!

    Part of me wants to say, "I can't believe you built a Country Gent in about 8 weeks or so"... Except for the fact that I watched you build an Epi Casino in about the same time frame... :D Seriously, though... Great job, Rick! LOVE it!

    Photobucket used to provide a certain amount of bandwidth to its members at no charge. Now they are charging you if you use more than small amount in storage. If you don't meet their demand for a minimum upgrade, they blur out the pictures that they once provided to you at no charge. Many threads from years ago were hosted by photobucket and are now useless. There's nothing wrong with the camera.

    Hi John,

    You can not pay, I would have to pay since its my pictures they are hosting.

    I wish there was an easy way to move the pictures somewhere else and have the links updated to point there,
    but that's not gonna happen.

    Wished I had never used photo bucket.

    Rick
