Hi John. Thanks for the kind comment. I use a vox valvetronix ad50 vt xl amp. it sounds wonderful!!! For practice, I use a Chord amp, small and no fancy effects. Just reverb and a clean sound.

Thanks for the kind words on the box!...I drew that Hosanna art and added it to the box myself, it was quite a bit of work envolved, i didn't think anyone would even notice!...I am glad you did!

Thanks for the nice comments! I need to post some neck photos...if I don’t here, I will send them to you on FB. 

Pandora online? I haven’t tried that. I used to listen to some blues stations on 365 a year or two ago. I love custom/fan made stations. I’ve actually wanted to start a local blues station on AM/FM, but just too much money needed to be involved and I don’t have it. 

Ill look into Pandora! Thank you for telling me about it.

Oklahoma 1936 License Plate #134-651      By John Bolton

I was made in late 1935 in the Oklahoma State Prison at Mc Alester. I was black with yellow letters. I was issued in Goodland County in 1936 and bolted on the rear of a gray and black 31' Ford coupe with a rumble seat. I couldn't see where we were going, but when the dust wasn't too bad, I could see where we'd been.

The Ford belonged to Gibson. He had a place in…

This Old Guitar  By Uncle John
I put my old Silvertone guitar up for sale and advertised it at a hundred dollars in the local Penny Saver. A young guy called about it then came to the house. He could play some. Not stuff I'd ever heard, but not bad stuff. He asked me, “Is there any wiggle room on the hundred? I'd have to…
