    Though I don't really like finishes that don't show any grain through the laquer, this scheme would kick ass for Glamrock :p

    Is that your black Gibson you're getting refinished in this color?

    1977 Gibson. It really needed paint and a new set up, it's at Mike Lull's till 10/12, can't wait to pick it up.

    Hey TBird, since you're the one with the massive flock of birds ;) is there any of them that balance better than others?

    Not a bad question really, but they're surprisingly similar overall, the Lull is the best of them and because of it's enormous headstock and light body the Burny is the worst - but because it's light I find it very easy to handle.
    I think where my right hand rests (on the bridge) and the strap length have a lot to do with it - that and being primarily a pick player.

    Okay, I doubt we'll start a whole new thread called "T-Birds behind Subaru Outbacks".However, I finally got around to taking a picture of my Lull T-4 behind my new Outback! They even match!

    Awesome on all counts!

    Beautiful bass and car - Lots of Subie love here!



    You did much better than me, I tried to take some shots of the re-finned 'Bird yesterday, way too cloudy ;-/

    Hey man, that shot is all tribute to you as our fearless leader!!! :D It is pretty sunny today, so it was a quick snap and looked ok!

    Not to get off topic, but I am absolutely loving my 2013 Outback! What a great car! It is a great gear hauler with the seat back protectors installed. I'm really enjoying it!

    Subies are really good for gear!
    Glad you like that new one.


    I need one more sunny day to get some shots............Seattle went from July 22 till Oct.11 with no rain, the day I go to get that re-fin it rains...... :(
