This is a pretty cool link, RCS. Thanks for posting it.

It makes me wonder how much hostoric used gear is floating about in the flotsam and jetsam of the artistic populace. Many other famous musicians have had gear misplaced, sold or just plain stolen over the years.

I wonder if that LPC even made that last connecting flight that went down?

Thanks for posting the link, some cool footage, too bad they tried to edit it like a f'ing music video, you can hardly focus on anything before they cut to another shot.

Did anyone catch the Brass Nut? I noticed that they didn't replace any of the missing inlays on the headstock. Also cool that they put the Live Humble Pie song at the end (one of my favorite cuts of all time, live at the Filmore). Good stuff, thanks Randy.

I think Frampton showed great taste in not totaly restoring his "Prodigal Guitar". It has great character and tells a very cool story. That is part of the reason I have kept my 280 all these years despite buying some nice higher end guitars. It tells part of the story of my life. Kudos Peter!
