a Loud little critter ! yep love me a tuna can, got my first in a diddley just to make it louder, but whit a four it gets in the range of your famous IOWA LPG at least the after ring of the strings that is but that can also be deu to the Famous UJ Thumb effect that for the Hard Core to decide Nice One ,Vintage Doctor Blues ,U J The Blues Purpotrator,you Name it, there is a hole bunch of Superlatives you can  hang on this guy ! but who is to say there is only one UJ !

Thanks, AGP.  Hmm, how much did they raise them?   I have one more and a $7.50 screamer too.

As usual a well performed Hank Song, on a nice little Toona Reso 4 Stringer, keep 'em coming 'UJ', have done 1 build with a $5 Holler Pup, which I liked, but unfortunately with the recent price hike in postage and the international exchange rate, any purchases from MGB in Florida have become far too expensive for this "Tight Assed Old Aussie" ;-D

LOL, Tee.  That is not bad at all.  Thanks!

Thanks, Brian.  Well, it's Sunday and I will likely play some six string Gowpel.  Back to some 4 string during the week.
