Random guitar shop photos from…
#1 & #2: The 12th Fret on Danforth Avenue, Toronto. Just a couple of the many cool things in these shots are #1: right and 4th from right are two refinished 1966 Telecasters. The sunburst was selling for just under 4k and the black one was selling for $3,300. bargains compared to an all original ‘66 Tele which would sell somewhere between $8k and $10k. There is also a beautiful ‘69 Strat (3rd from left in photo #2) for ~$8k. Also a good deal!
#3: Unusual pelham blue SG Standard at the Long & Mcquade Store in Brampton (Toronto). This SG was a Sam Ash exclusive, so I wonder how it ended up in Canada? Oh…I should explain: we don’t have Sam Ash stores here in Canada!
#4: A custom ordered Stratocaster at 12th Fret in Toronto. I was talking to one of the guys that works there and he told me had been to Corona and toured the Fender factory. They offered to build a guitar to his specs, so he had them build this one. It’s in an usual blue (I love it but I don’t remember what it’s called!) with black hardware, noiseless pickups, locking tuners, compound radius neck with American Deluxe logo and fret markers. Sure is pretty! They called it the “American Design” Strat… and here it is. There was also a Tele but it sold already… http://www.12fret.com/content/2012/09/10/fender-american-design-stratocaster-1-and-telecaster-1/
#5: I love it. It’s a sewage pumping company. Their slogan is: "Yesterday’s meals on wheels". Brilliant. :D
Apparently the guys at #work like my #furryhat!

Ulysses Aldrovandi’s marine mammal illustrations from exactly 400 years ago (1613). Some have human emotions, feet!, and imaginative bodies, while characteristics like teeth, baleen and bones are described accurately. Just makes me wonder what we will think of “modern science” in another 400 years…
