    Sterling by Music Man needs some AL models!!

    It just occurred to me that for all the cool stuff under the SBMM brand, there haven't been any Albert Lee models.

    I'd love to see some! The ALHH is one of my all-time favorite axes. I'm about a 20 minute drive from Praxis. Maybe I should go down there and say hey.

    I haven't posted on here in a while, hope all is well with everyone.

    I did see a few threads about Casey's kidney transplant around the start of the month! FEEL BETTER CASEY!!

    Well hey look who it is!

    Are Pat Park and/or Mike Reiland still at Praxis?

    I'll have to go look up that thread.

    I'm telling ya... SBMM versions of the standard AL and the ALHH (roasted maple or rosewood neck options) with ash and mahogany bodies, respectively in trem/non trem variants would be great.

    I mean... even the Valentine has a SBMM model - surely the AL can have one too!

    I'm in Irvine, if you guys ever want a visit, btw.

    Yup I remember that - I thought that you had "let the cat out of the bag" too soon and was waiting for the model to eventually come out,

    Mike has been gone for about 7 years and Pat has been gone for close to 6 years, but, I am here.

    We really dissuade tours of the shop. We're just not set up for it and it's pretty busy around here as well, especially with NAMM just around the corner

    Was Mike at Guitar Center Lake Forest back in 03?
    Name sounds really familiar and he may have been the guy who sold me my first 2 Lukes back then.

    I KNOW B2D sold me a bunch of stuff too!
