I'm surprised you found one. I thought Frenchy had them all. Razz
I haven't seen a Thunder or even a decent Westone in my neck of the woods for years. (I think I got them all tongue )

+1 Love the trans finishes, they are my favorite by far. Congrats Spidey, that is a beautiful instrument, you should be stoked. Enjoy! cheers
That picture is great, makes me smile every time. We should start a picture thread of forum members rockin their guitars in the 70's and 80's. THAT would be fun and funny!

Oh yeah Hobs, you on to something there, let's do it!!! I've got a pic of me as a teenage butterball plying my Spectrum GT bass, I'm pretty sure anyway. If I find it, it's going up on this site! What a Face
