I should take a few weeks off I think, I'm not feeling myself lately, too much crap going on around me to concentrate.

This is my personal 1962'ish Hofner Bass guitar, I have just had it totally reset the neck and the bridge and had the pick-ups re-wound, my next thing to do is to restore it to its former glory by re-laquering the body. It sounds and plays absolutely amazing and I use it in my band. I had most of my guitars stolen in a house raid but fortunately this was at a friends house at that time. I also haqve a 1978 Tokai les paul reborn gold top that is total perfection and sounds better than the new Gibsons. Tokai was taken to court a sued by Gibson in 1979 because the company produced better guitars than Gibson for 1/3rd the price. I don't expect this to score very high but it's my baby and I love her.

est score 5.3
dream score 6.5

I'm sorry too to hear that you have some yucky stuff going on. Hoping the best for you of course.

As for the pic, love the golden tones. It looks awesome for the age. Sounds like you have quite a history with all of your guitars!

Chin up!
