    He cheated ... you showed us the MODCAT. We can get every detail from that. I would have done the same thing.

    Oh, and I'm perhaps the forums #1 fan of soapbars so well done buddy! :)

    Yeah, as you see, you didn't know with whom you were messing! LOL You post a sticker, these cats here can probably tell you everyone who's ever owned it, and even which one of his friends played it. :) (Not that they're obsessive about these, or anything like that... ;))

    ...was owned by a little old lady that only played it at church on Sundays. Although not allowed to, her grandson sneaked in and played it three times, and he nearly got caught the last time. Anyone caught pointing at it was never again allowed to even look at it, until it went up for sale. o_O

    As promised, a better set of photos:

    No guitars fell over during the photography, although it was a bit touch-and-go.

    [​IMG]

    Top Grain, was rather overcast today, so the aperture had to be wide open

    [​IMG]

    My first one with Moons! Was hard to get a good shot. =(

    [​IMG]

    Olde Schoole Tuners - I hardly even know how to string a guitar without locking ones any more.
