Thanks, Nathan! It's the other standard type vs. the one I have (mine's a Starbird).

These guys are TOTALLY AWESOME!

The Reo Brothers is a Filipino band composed of four brothers. The band perform renditions of 1950s–1970s music such as that of The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Dave Clark Five, Bee Gees, Gary Lewis & the Playboys, The Lettermen, America, The Ventures, VST & Co. and other prominent bands of the era. The band became more popular after they performed at the ABS-CBN Christmas Special 2013 in Araneta Coliseum. It was a concert graced by over a hundred local stars and celebrities but it was Reo Brothers band that drew the only standing ovation that night

These guys are great and they bring a lot of energy to their performances. I was in the Navy back in the 80s and visited the Philippines, outside the base in Olongapo city were dozens of clubs that had live music. I saw some of the best bands and amazing musicians there. So much so that the impressions have stayed with me all these years later.

The Reo Brothers are carrying on a long cultural tradition in music, and it's nice to see them be able to share it with so many.
