    THANKS for sending GREENIE BACK, MR. LEESE!

    A couple of years back, Howard Leese and I traded guitars. I sent him a green quilted top SC RW trem. It has been his "#1 Bad Company" guitar. I recently posted another SC trem RW in cherry burst, and Howard asked if I'd like to trade it for my old "Greenie." We did, and I got my old one back yesterday.







    I'm excited to have her back. Gonna gig her tomorrow.

    Oh................on the guitar? Which of the three sets? I changed out the black plastic speed knobs for ebony ones, and then Howard put on white Fender amp knobs. I put on the current ivoroid knobs.

    Beautiful guitar! I can see why he wanted it, and why you'd trade back. Congrats!
