Lombardi Trophy

Just swell & nearly seventy years old, This old girl has held herself together very well over the years. She's had a little work done but all the original parts are present. Stevek Williavich sent me this pictures of his 1943 (Harmony made) Lombardi, after spotting my 1945 H700 on Minneapolis Craigslist this week. These Lombardi's arch tops are ultra rare, & feature impressive birdseye maple tops; as well as Brazilian rosewood tails, bridges & fingerboards. This one's a solid player, & it's place in guitar history will surely be proudly preserved.

Rock with me & the Rock-ittes Friday night at the new High-Five night club in Burnsville, &
Saturday night & Main Street Bar in Hopkins

Every Rose Has it's Thorn

I did another show with this camp Friday night at Medina Ballroom & of course seized the opportunity to snap some back stage shots of a few guitars from the Minneapolis based HAIRBALL show. Guitar tech John Lockner seen here holding a Samick Blackbird solid body acoustic, played by Bobby Jensen as part of their POISON tribute. The Blackbird is a perfect choice when you need great tone & playability along with maximum feedback suppression while delivering over 50,000 watts of clean acoustic love.
