    Interesting - GJ in Montana? How does it go over?

    I was born in Montana (Scobey, Northeast Mt) and moved to Seattle - (now I live in Portland)

    It sounds like you did just the reverse.

    Hey, is that an Epiphone you're playing on the CFJ website? From the pickguard, the neck inlays, and what little I can see of the tailpiece, it looks like a late '30s - mid '40's Broadway.

    They're great guitars. String 'em heavy and high and they really growl. I use GHS White Bronze on mine - it gives a 'near bright bronze' sound, but the strings last forever and there is enough metalic content to use with a PAF pickup if you want to. (though I took my pickup off and now play it acoustic-only)
    You get one chance to enjoy this day, but if you're doing it right, that's enough.
