Yes, it had "goodies":-) )Had because it was returned) you never got to hear the grittiest......the thing I did not like about it was when changing up and down the numbered choices, the Vol levels also changed--some voices, very quiet, others YIKES.....not too cool, n'loud enuf to cause the cat/kids grief ..LOL...I'd love to be a product "tester".....

thankyou Barry! working on getting some oldies but goodies recorded on the LRC, added as files and yes indeedy it is what you hear on my "radio".......Pete said the cure for the slack bottom is a thicker gauge, 70..not so sure the lovely tuners are made for such beasts! LOL.....have YET to take off the legs and play it sitting, true lap slide style....savoring each n every play....

Holy Smokes !!! That LRC is a true work of art in every sense of the word. WoW !!!
The arts of wood-scuplting, cabinet-making, metal-smithing, upholstering, music, sharing, love, compassion, all combined. Actually brought a tear to my eye, seriously.
A true thing of beauty thru n' thru in appearance, heart n' sound.
Now, I'm talkin' about the guitar, but Laurie fits the bill to a tee also. ;-)
Excellent piece ! Wait...,did I say WOW !?! :-) Take care man. -Wally

The only thing better than the custom LRC steel guitar, is the builder, and generous and creative heart:-) that lies therein..........This picker is on cloud nine,,,,,literally....the beauty of the guitar in the flesh is breathtaking, and the sound, heavenly........yup, cloud nine, i might not ever get down off the cloud...Hope to get to a maiden voyage demo vid soon,....for sake of hearing it! :-)thankyou, my friend.........
