Jimi I think your house would be a great place to spend a vacation. Bring a tele, an old champ, some good rocking chairs, and lots of those wonderful McDonald's gift certificates everyone receives for Christmas for us to share hot apple pies. and lots of solder

I claim no success here, but I did stumble upon a Japanese kindred spirit with some great photos on his blog.

Re: Wampler SLOstortion [traced]
