    I can't 'like' this post enough. If there's something clipped to the headstock it better be a goPro linked to a huge screen behind you!

  9. Floo liked TrampledUnderFoot's post in the thread New member and NGD! - G6609TFM Dark Cherry Stain.

  14. Floo replied to the thread Volume differences neck & bridge.
