cheers, would've put both pics up at the same time but was eager to get away for the w/end. i've been meaning to try the 'relic' look for awhile now.

yes, Richey it's a mini jack;)

Even more impressive on a second look. Is that a real tiny dog in the background?

MERCY! Jabes, this to me, is the most impressive build I've seen for some time. Makes me wanna ride Amtrak and do a show someplace South :) Nice! Thanks for sharing. -Glenn
