Dean V

Congrats to Chad Speck of Minneapolis on his latest guitar purchase. A beautiful 1980 Dean V will be the newest addition to the massive arsenal in his assemblage. These beautifully crafted classics were once very plentiful in these parts, but to have one come available these days is a mighty rare occurrence. If you ever had one of these in your collection you would be more than hesitant to part with it as well

Rock with me tonight at Neisen's in Savage.

ESP-ecially fine

I love a good cocktail party, & my good fortune brought me a return invitation to the social event of the sticks last night. The annual south side musicians party was a huge success, & allowed me the opportunity visit with long time colleagues, talk shop, & view a portion of the vast collection of Cary Havlicek, current resident of New Prague. I snapped several pics, but this ESP purchased at Rhapsody Music in Mankato stood out as a particularly prime example for my site. The beautifully finished highly figured carved maple cap is the apex of this axe, but the recess mounted Floyd trem is world class, as is the fully bound neck & body! Check out more of his axes at Downtown Sound where he is the full time instructor to all the upcoming guitar heroes. Thanks for everything, Cary. I look forward to working with you again one day soon.
