    Why thank you, sir! It doesn't have the hip tuners like Wil's GENDER BENDER, or the seasoned patina of Ken's DRY MARTINI, but I'm pretty pleased with it. Thanks, Arnold! :)

    Yep. That's what the pics are of...apparently, I bought the very first LaScala hybrid ever made. That back in the last pic is laminated, if you can believe that.
