    So, when are you moving to Bakersfield, Tavo? That is pretty cool and I’m sure old Buck would have loved it.

    I'm just old enough to remember as a little boy, my neighbor Forest. He was just out of high school and I would talk to him in the front yard as he would polish his dodge charger every week. Then I saw him wearing army camo, then all of sudden he wasnt there but his car was and a black flag in the window of the house. POW/MIA His parents Millie & Howard were never the same. Now that I've got a 23yr old and a 16yr old, I cant even fathom their absence in my life. I hope I never do.

    A sad story too often told . We lost many in our community . I saw my brother-in-law go to boot camp in Paris Island , off to Nam and returning home only to die a fall down drunk a few short years ago . He too was never the same . I will keep in my prayers Forest , his parents and most importantly your sons . Your boys will be by your side until you grow old , I'm sure of that ....

    Nice to see yours - I designed the very first Gretsch "Buck-O-Sonic" a few years back, and love to show it at our gigs. It's my main gretsch among some really nice 6120s I use too. Buck theme finish professionally done as an artist model for me, front and back, with Dyno 2000's and added bigsby, compton bridge, and custom guard print. Check out www.thebuckoffs.com for some pics
