    Gibson Les Paul Special single cut. Beat up black, or maybe tv yellow. Gibson dirty fingers in bridge, soapbar in neck. Three way switch. One volume, one tone. TruArc stainless, fixed bridge with separate tail-piece wrapped backwards and screwed down tight. Or maybe a Bigsby. Sperzel locking tuners. Bone nut. Dunlop strap locks.

    I can just hear it cranked straight into my Blues Jr.

    I have vivid daydreams!

    Rock solid rock machine.

    Anybody else having a rainy Sunday with too much time to think?

    That's been my style since before people called it garage. Though, I've never played in garage before.

    Guild Thunderbird, a fuzz pedal or echo (even that's excessive) a nice cable and a twin reverb. Set it up to break up and slam it with fuzz. Using the built in trem is great fun when you've got a lot of fuzz and reverb going.

    Here in Northern Arizona its upper 60s, sunshine, no clouds, and sunrays. This time of year always makes me want to crank the tremolo and reverb on my princeton and play shimmering California Country bell tones.

    When I grow up, maybe I'll even be as good as Marty and Kenny.

    .

    Reminds me of this style of guitar, but I'd go with an Epiphone 2020 Junior instead.

    You looking to make something or mod something or what?
    I swear it sounds like one of those $100 Epi’s would get you the bones.

    Naw, just daydreaming. I need another guitar like I need another hole in my head.

    Unless those Les Paul Special DCs go on sale again.:D I don't know why the single cuts cost so much more. Well, I do. People will pay more them. Cha-ching$!
