Thanks for accepting my friend request. Not a damn thing wrong with beer, guitars and music. Again...beautifully crafted instruments, true works of art!

PS: I have a cousin that lives in Wrenbury up in Cheshire. Ever been there?

I am curious as to what kind of amp you were using on the video. I have a old Vox amp that sounds a lot like that. Also, do you all sell those pickups, if so how much and shipping costs to 73773. Thanks again, great sound.

Keep on slidin'
