    Hope that everyone had a great experience at NAMM if you had the chance to go. Just received the latest from Gerard Melancon. The classic lines of he Pro Artist in Foam Green:

    Gerard is on the short list of the best F-style builders in the world. This guitar is an outstanding example of classic styling with upgraded electronics and neck join design.
    Also, from Nick Greer the Special 20 head and cab is "brownface" goodness that utilizes a 5879 pentode preamp that is very open and three dimensional.

    And finally,
    We have a mint CP Thorton Legend in stock. If you know anything about Chucks guitars these rarely show up in any retail location. This guitar was hardly played before coming in. It's stunning!

    Nice stuff.

    the Special 20 is a real sleeper in Nick's line. For folks that like the Z28, the special 20 will blow your mind. KILLER amp. Just EATS pedals.

    Got a great line of stuff Larry! Wow!

    Gently used CP Thornton Elite in the shop now. The Elite is Chuck's all Curly Maple guitar that has long sustain and is very punchy. The CP Thornton unique Ebony Tailpiece option on this guitar gives more warmth and woodiness to the tone of the guitar.Beautiful!

    Wow. You don't see the Special 20's often. REALLY underrated heads.

    The Octal preamp tube and FAC switch make it very versatile and different almost Fendery flavors from tweed to just passed brown.

    Very nice.Aaaargh. Firing up my gas!!

    The CP Thornton Classic is a Tele with a twist. 14 degess offset headstock and a neck-through-body design makes this T-style guitar really special ($2900).
