    I'm sure Bovinehost has posted this pic of his over at DP a few times, but here it is again for good measure.

    Barry barry barry

    first off it was 2,500 not 1,000. Secondly it is enough to take you down if at the same time CLF refused to make replacement necks . Tommy then refused to do business with those guys after that. He was left with a revenue reduction of over 60% with an infrastructure that could withstand a 20% reduction but not 60%. At the end as many of you know Grover jackson was samll and trying to step in but he made great stuff but just couldn't get up to speed quick enough do to his relative small size at that time.

    Leo didn't have a Les Paul, He had a "The Paul" which was a walnut neck and bodied variation of the les Paul but thinner and had different contours. I have that guitar also.
    It sounds nothing like a mahoghany body/maple top standard LP.

    I'm loving this!

    But seriously, DO THE BOOK!

    We need "The life and adventures of Sterling Ball"
    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.
