Well it's been a good year and I thought I would share with you the Wall of Joy. You can see this photo and photos of the individual instruments in a new gallery under my name.

If you recall a few months ago I had to release a number of pieces of equipment with a promise to replace and add as soon as I could. I was left with only my W597 and the ADII. After a great series of events business wise - the picture below shows everything that's currently in my signature.



In addition however there a few other stragglers that aren't quite mine yet and therfore not in the picture.

Thanks to Gary Powers an MM68 is on its way here. Hopefully tomorrow.

A beautiful restored and enhanced 1619-5 courtesy of tlc125. Tom had this listed for several weeks and it has an Op-Pro fitted. Will be mine as soon as I get the money off to Tom. I was convinced to buy this rather than other options to be a pair partner to my third project.

I bought a lovely 1982 vintage 1658-1 slot top Custom Legend 12 string. Sent straight to the Mothership where it will receive a total refinish and an Op-Pro transplant. At $450 plus $550 charges works out significantly cheaper that the 1618 reissue plus will have the big tuner display for my old eyes.

It's been a good year :D

Very nice Stuart. If you need to get rid of a few to make room, just let me know. I'll even pay shipping. ;)

i've seen walls painted like this before. the style of art is called "trump l'oeil" (trump loy, which translates "to fool the eye"). the artist paints in a way that has depth and is three dimensional in appearance tricking the viewer's eye and brain into believing what he sees actually exists. this artist is good stuart, very good. i like the amp in the foreground for effect. that's an awesome mural!!

Hmmm oh yes I do have a hankering for a Breadwinner in good condition. Something wonderful about the monochrome ones and that shape. Oh well there's more deals already bubbling this year though the sales cycles I get involved in tend to be dogfights and go on for between 9 and 18 months.

Gorgeous. Makes me think I need a bigger wall.
