Don't you know I know it?! (And BTW, my main rig currently is a FYD into an MC50 into dual 1X12s with a K120 and E120. My backup rig is an SMS into a Carvin DCM200L into the same cabs. I told the gear about the Wolf in the works, it's drooling now, too. :P ).

Sure, friends are always welcome.

Regarding build pics, while I have a couple, I'm going to withhold posting them until I have my final axe in hand. To quote the wisest individual I know - a true wizard:

“Many folk like to know beforehand what is to be set on the table; but those who have laboured to prepare the feast like to keep their secret; for wonder makes the words of praise louder."

Gandalf (J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King)

Fair enough. Far be it from me to argue with the infinite wisdom of Gandalf!

Wow I've never seen that photo - right when he got it back from Irwin (ca. Sept 77...?)
I think that's my all time favourite Garcia photo. Thanks!
