1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    M-65. Definitely worth picking up if in good shape. That liner is dated 1975. If you remove the liner, the actual coat will have a similar label on it with a DSA # as well. The 2-digit number in the middle will be the year.

    picked up a nicely patina-ed G&G guitar case at the thrift for $15. I thought it was Fender Jaguar specific, but it's too small (probably for a Mustang?)

    the jaguar only came in 24" scale. that is the usual mustang scale as well. what's funny is that is shorter than the 25.5" "full-scale" strat, tele, jazz master, etc as i'm assuming you know.

    but yeah, the mustang (and duo-sonic and i think music master as well) came in a slightly smaller (!) 22.5" scale. i'd guess it was for one of those pint-size variants. very cool!

    you're right - in my head all Mustangs are student scale like Duosonics for some reason.

    @Nataku or @feuco

    Is this the good Sierra or is it recent. I was going to leave it at 15 but figured I'd grab it just in case.

    This was behind it as a bonus prize.

    That's the good stuff. There isn't a bad Sierra Designs 60/40 parka. The new repro stuff is just as good as the vintage stuff, in my opinion.
