    Just a random choice of vendor. Needs original art from you perhaps. Carpe diem, bro:

    Mine is currently of my 2017 Triumph Thruxton 1200, though it might change to a different bike in the next week or two.

    Just a black and white shot of me playing at what used to be one of my favorite spots to play.

    I had just bought that guitar, 2016 Std Tele, and put it in front of my amp. Took a pic and that was that. I astill have both the amp and the cab but don't use either of them now. The amp is resting and that freaking huge heavy cabinet is in a closet.

    Robert the robot co-pilot of Fireball XL5. This is one of the great memories from my childhood, this is what the future was supposed to be (according to Gerry Anderson, anyway) Gerry did the voice of Robert, the only character voice he ever did, I think.

    My other great attachment to Fireball XL5 happened at one of the Stonehenge festivals, late 70s. I'd been there for a week or so already, so was well into the altered state of consciousness which was obligatory at such events. As the sun was attempting to rise over the stones on summer solstice, I could hear the theme from Fireball blaring out from one of the sound systems on the festival site.

    In my befuddled state at the time, it brought tears to my eyes.

    And the nick was inspired by another great musician, Manuel Ponce. He wrote a lot of original works for Andres Segovia.

    It's from my 2001 birthday party in L.A. and we all wore goofy masks and hats. Damn, that was fun. I even bumbled into Benmont Tench on my way to the loo at Musso & Frank's.

    The very first from scratch build I made, with tons of help from guys here, with my 2-year old "helping" take pictures.

    Special mentions: Ron Kirn, Freeman Keller, Marty, macro and tons more I've blatantly stolen ideas from!

    My avatar since February of 2016. My wife is artistic and tech savvy, so she was helping me get new business cards with pics of me on each side. She took the pic that is my avatar on the front porch of the French/Galvan House in Heritage Park here in Corpus Christi. I'm staged to look like I'm performing, but nothing's actually plugged in.
    02-03-2016 - Me at the French-Galvan House - 1.jpg

    The guitars on stage with me are my Breedlove Atlas Series AD25/SM, my Wechter NV-5413E Nashville-tuned/high string parlor and my Logan Custom Butterscotch Blonde tele. It has a swamp ash body, DiMarzio Twang King pickups, Bob Logan's stainless steel bridge plate with a straight alignment for the bridge pickup, and a 4-way switch.

    Behind this house in Heritage Park was a boarded up building my wife saw that she figured would also be a great backdrop for a picture.

    She was right. Both of these pics are on my current business card.

    BTW, that BSB was my go-to tele for gigging from 2011 up until this summer, when I bought my latest Logan Custom tele...

    It may be time for new business cards and a new avatar pic.

    Mine is a screenshot of Redd Volkaert picking on the Mario Martin T-style guitar that I won in the 2014 TDPRI raffle giveaway. Used to love his demo videos of all the guitars. Missed him doing them last year.
    Which reminds me, it’s that time of year. No giveaway this year?
