    Haha, it's double fun :). This was from the time I was switching to the Ultimate Comfort Duane Eddy handle (on the right).

    It's all those Western motifs, cactuses, steer heads and "G" brand marks. Even leather trim in the G6121 Roundup model.

    I have a philosophical problem with the ritual mutilation and torture of fine guitars using a medieval hot iron branding tool......:eek:

    Funny, on the other side of the coin I love a good brand, woodworkers for generations have branded their crafts just not so openly.
