    It was its turn on the threadmill and I decided to take some shots. Such a spectacular yet sleeper run - the Experience 2013 Private Stock Custom 22.

    Arguably the granddaddy of all runs:

    I used to have the two in the middle below. Really liked the original 1, 2, & 3 dragons, but was not a big fan of the 25th (except for Brett’s one-off that I was told would never be made, but that’s another story. I think Veinbuster had it for awhile).

    In case (pun intended) anyone’s interested, the background panels are quilted sepele.

    The singlecut dragon would have been the one I’d get! I love how they fitted the snout and jaw into the guitar outline.

    That 25th is an interesting story. I met it at the factory and took it home with me. About the same time a moment of weakness made a certain prototype available.

    But is was made for Brett and he always owned it, right? Stunning top and colour (did I spell that right? :p) on that one. Post a pic, please.

    My dad was on a bomber in WW2 stationed in England. He came home and forever got a kick out of pronouncing it that way. Thanks for the memory. :)

    My thoughts too - somewhere in Norfolk or Lincolnshire as a guess. If you know the staion(s) let us know.

    I may be able to find out. My brother recorded a DVD of my dad's memories including the war. I'm pretty sure he was a belly gunner on a B26.

    It's not B26 but it is called Thumper (see nose art) and your dad would have seen lots of them. The RAF's BBMF Lancaster a few years ago.

    On the SC dragon, any idea what material did they use for the teeth and the black boundaries at the gumlines? Just curious. :)

    Shawn told me they’re genuine dragon teeth.
