    The case for your guitar smelled like cigarettes and one night stands.

    I love the squabbins too, wish the \m/ pups were available with that option.

    That Santana is looking great, now!

    Was this stored in a goat's a**? That doesn't look like rust. Besides, if Martysnarf had anything to do with it, there'd be a raccoon tail on it.
