We lost the great Larry Collins January 5th. I’m so glad I got to catch their act a handful of times over years, both here and abroad. Total professionals and always put on a great show. R.I.P. Larry and Lorrie.
Last week I got an invite to bring some guitars to a Jim Irsay band rehearsal where I got to hang with Billy Gibbons for a bit, what a blast! The Irsay collection of rare guitars and historic memorabilia is incredible. Check it out if you get the chance.

I can’t believe it’s been over 6 years since JD’s Lucky Penny video came out. Time is flying! I thought I’d repost the video along with a few close up pictures I took last year of the guitar. I love that it’s starting to show some of the miles JD is putting on it!
I never get tired of hearing Matt fingerpick. Happy New Year and thanks for checking out my website! Catch you next year.
A while back I sold my ’46 Epiphone to my friend Juan Hernandez. I installed two of my CAR pickups with bronze covers and a 3 way switch. It couldn’t have gone to a better home! Check out the clip of Lush Life he posted with it plugged into a 1964 Fender Vibrolux.
I really like this clip of Pat on his Roadmaster. I can’t believe it’s been over a year ago that he was here picking it up!
I’m getting close on another 5 string mandolin with a vibrato. I’ll post some finished pictures in a few weeks. Have a Happy Holiday!
