    No problem bragging about that. It's the absolute dog's bollocks!

    Great fun!

    We had a great time in Dallas, too bad we couldnt make it for dinner to El Ranchito together. I told Redd I was bringing some spanish delicatessen for him, a spanish solid body that is ;)
    The treat for me was he came up on stage Sat night and played the guitar.
    He came up and said "I just got this guitar and a music book thank you ladies" :) He blew our minds with his tremendous playing and kicked everybodys ass up on stage. I felt like a roadie beggin for the strings to not break everytime he bent a note. His playing as always was humorous, creative, funny, melodic... amazing licks that put a smile on your face rather than being thrown at your face...He was making melodies with each solo run when most everybody else "guitar faced" would play pentatonic licks "look at me look at me look at me..."
    Redds musical pockets are plainly endless. If you havent seen him live, please do. If you havent got his records, get them buy all of them!
    He can rip it off with this replica or any other guitar, whatever, hell give him a broomstick with strings and he will do magic magic with it. Absolutely the best guitar player and a good friend too. No Redd! Thank you!.. for all the talent you share with us!

    PD: Check the pic, I had just given him the guitar and some guys were takin pics so we were posing, one second before the shot he says "do you think we should be holding each other for so long?" :lol:

    That thing is AMAZING!!!!! I'm not really even a fan of relic guitars, but that thing is just gorgeous. It looks like it's been someones best friend for a long, long, time.

    that's one mean music log.
