been playing around with the spreadsheet and adding pic links into it... the publish as webpage function works pretty well if you only have one link per cell... gonna write some code to autogenerate the web tables a couple of different ways, so you can "search" by body type, headstock, etc...

okay, so here's the raw data that will be turned into a better web page for identifying models...

http://www.indysworld.com/guitars/Model-Checklist.htm

also, if anyone has any pics of the Electra branded amps from last year (red 80's style trim...) I'd like some pics of those.

I found the pics of the Bass amp (ALB-1) from around April of this year on eBay, and I have pics of the recent SG-2 small amp. (plus can take more if needed... :rofl: )

got all the data loaded into a database, and the listing of picture, and now I'm linking the pics to the model variation... I'm about 1/3 of the way through the nearly 300 model/variations, and about 1/3 of the way through the nearly 1100 photos!

I've got all the images tied back to models, and have the image html link properly generated, but having issues getting it into list mode....

so far it's going okay though... :)

McB - the links on the EC-20 amp pics did not work. The rest looks great. I can't wait for the guitar/bass page.
