Aw, we should have requested Tom "Beatbyrd" to do some lead vocals at S.C.A.R.F; he does lead vocals right! 8)
There is no reason to ever be bored.

...why yes, I suppose I do have a double bound guitar fetish...

Uhh, you jumped up for "Feel a whole lot better" before I could....... Actually, with the monitor system problems, I'm not sorry I didn't get a chance to croak out a few tunes. Anyway, I'm a backup singer..... when I sing, people start backing up. Tom

By the way in the last photo posted, I erroneously labeled Pat's Bass 8) as a 4001 C64 in the caption, when, in fact, it is a "V" series, as John A had correctly mentioned earlier.

Sorry about my confusion ..... :oops:

I wasn't confused...how? Because I look at which way the headstock points. Rightside up (V63) or upside down (C64), but your concept was right, reissue any way you look at it.

J. Michael, do you really want your phone number publicly displayed? Think it over. I can remove it if you want.
