I can't imagine all the things this guitar must have seen....
Congratulations, honestly.
You own a part of history.

Beautiful. Congrats, Bill. Seems to be in great shape. Any info about the black Lab on the lower plate?

The previous caretaker of #10 says this:
"It was Spanish Peaks Brewery. Black Dog Ale
I put it on there in memory of my dog and the collar on the dog says "Chug" which was my nick name. "

...in this thread.

Wow - I'm just realizing that's a 27(?) fret guitar... or did I count wrong?

Yea, it has a few extras. I'm not sure how usable they all are as I didn't get to spend much time playing it before I took it up to Alembic for some much needed electronic TLC. I'm looking forward to the elves doing their magic and sending it back home, 27 frets and all!

Bill, tgo

The electronics are back in original working order. The guitar has been cleaned and got a light polishing. You can see a couple of current pics on this thread.

Bill, tgo
