    that 68 is nice, the prices on the late 60's and early-mid 70s are going WAY upp.

    Wow, eric! That's in great shape for a 50 year old guitar. Nice, real nice!

    BTW, Fred. The sonic blue is sweet. One of my favorite colors.

    A '56 I once owned.
    Pics are from '92 if memory serves. One artsy shot of the back, one casual snap from a gig, same guitar.

    Fred,
    That guitar's seen it's share of the world and I'll never tire of seeing that guitar. In fact I'd love more photos personally. Congrats on that one again! :D
