    Wow... what a great idea. Picture 9 is a Strat covered in what looks like white gold leaf. What a cool way to finish a guitar! I'm getting a new idea for the finish on Sheryl's new bass...

    I think you need at least three of them in different shades to really make a statement! 8)

    I'll use any excuse to get more guitars.

    You know, gold leaf is genious to use as a finish. It doesn't tarnish so you could get away without topcoating with lacquer or whatever. And then when you get any scratches or anything, apply a new sheet of leaf right over it! burnish it and it'll all match.

    too cool....

    Are the frets on the Eric Johnson strat huge, or what? They must be 6000 size or something.

    Re: Ah....................


    Yeah, now I'll have to take back all the bad thing I said about it.

    Um, I've reconsidered? :oops:


    Thanks for all the cool pics!
    I've got a new background (the Gretsch/Tele flamey back)!

    Hi Terry,
    Yes I got to talk with him, although very briefly, so I'm sure I didn't make any sort of lasting impression on him. I did get my picture taken with him, but I'll never show it to anyone. It looked like I'd just seen the Grim Reaper coming for me, scariest picture I've ever seen of myself, and I've seen quite a few. When the wife says.."Ohhhh...Mannn..." you know it can't be good.
