Funny as the morning progressed how it became harder and harder to walk away, it kept calling me back.

Rocky and the Rosewood Tele! What up?

Keep these pics coming, Greg! They look so real, like I could walk right into my computer screen and touch them. I take it Rocky's action was jacked up pretty high?

IIRC the address correctly, the museum is located where Olympic Camera used to be, where I first worked at in L.A. It appears the old brick building was torn down to make way for this modern building.

Great pics! Now, maybe it's just me, but the inlays of the 360/12 don't really look like crushed pearl inlay from that era. Is it the angle of the pics or am I missing something? Not a repro, right?
