Just a heads up Kirk, couldn’t watch your open mic video on my iPad. A lot of us use these, but they block almost all videos posted here unless you post through YouTube. Country Boy Can Survive came through loud and clear, whatever you used on that works! Dang, I wanted to see it, the comments sounded good! Take care my friend!

Hi there Kirk, thats a ideer ,but we are talking image,like say you have a theme build and you like to adapt the image on the pick-up to corresspond whit the rest of the build ,maybee undo the LACE red and white bit and stick something more colorfull or image wize more attractif on it and NOT by means of a sticker something more solid and time proof!
