Test run of #18 presented to Kid Congo Powers

A quick demo of my 18th build. A 3-stringer with a strat-style 4 pole pick-up. Played through a Fender Blues Junior. Given to Kid Congo Powers( The Gun Club, The Cramps & Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds)at a show. He's an open-tuned player. Hopefully...he'll dig it.

A very successful Test Run of #18, well played and sounds great, like Unc, I had no idea of who the Kid was, but after Utubing him, now I know, a bit weird, but "The Boy Can Play"  :-)

Good to hear you, Noisenaker.   It has been to long and you are sounding fantastic this morning.    Super nice guitar and I like the lettering/fret markers.  I don't know who Kid Congo is, but I hope he plays the crap out of it.
