    Billy had a few, there are a lot of pics where you can see the different ones and/or the changes he made through the years. For a while there was one he used a lot with a stud mounted TOM bridge before he was using the melita full time. He retired the originals in favor of his custom shop tribute and now pretty much plays a country gentleman with a Kent Armstrong P90 and T-Armond and rocking bar bridge.

    I think Greg is a really amazing player and a really nice guy! I've talked to him a number of times over the last couple of decades. I'm betting that his Burst(Hank) would buy you at least a 10,000 sq.ft house in Kentucky. I should call him just to say Hi!!
