They chose the best song ever written (yes, that's what I think of I Want To Hold Your Hand) to slaughter. As @POTUS might have summed it up: SAD!

Nice Autumnglo
I used to think this is the worst looking Ric standard finish, until I started to see it as Höfner Brunette on a Ric. But if I had one I'd doubtlessly have it clearcoated and buffed to a high gloss WAL.

My wife mentioned that she wants to see it, should we see the original film first (I can't remember anything from it, 30+ years)?

Ah, Ilan is a design collector! Those artsy Tel Avivian urbanites. Sehr sheyn!
Not much of a collector, but we do have a soft spot for mid-century modernism, space-age mod furniture and Scandinavian design.

Symmetry is the classical look. Violin family instruments, classical guitars etc. Elongated upper horn was a Fender invention for better balance on a strap.

I never really understood why the strap attaches near the tip of the upper horn in V type guitars. It seems to me that the bass would balance better if the rear strap button was right behind the bridge, "inside" the V. Anyone tried this?

'74 4005 in Jetglo. $6.7K starting bid.

Button-top pickups. JG and BG are imho the best colors for a 4005. FG makes its ass look even fatter than it is.

That's harsh news. The worst moments for a dementia patient are when he's aware of his condition. And they are from time to time.

There's definitely a preamp and probably a fuzz too.
He's got a pedalboard and there's probably an outboard preamp there. But the basic tone is classic 70s P.

Here's a short one with my 4003S/8. Kinda tripped myself up at 1:55, but whatever.  ;)



I thoroughly enjoyed this. Great music.
