    What's Up?

    Greetings fellow Evo owners. Been a while since I have been around here. I still have my VIII with 85K original miles. I got a LinkedIn request from Rob (Lescaille) today so I figured it's time for me to come back and check in. I'm sure there are plenty of new members and most have no idea who I am. I've been working for a jewelry manufacturer building web site, doing the IT geek thing, creating magazine ads, photography, videos, animations and basically anything to do with a computer, I do. I moved from the AV to the SGV 6 years ago and haven't seen any of my old AV/Evo friends for a while. I have stopped into RRE a couple of times to see Mike and his son. I even found a couple of SoCalEvo badges in my desk that I thought I had sold all of them.

    You may be asking yourself where I have been posting lately. I've been hanging out in guitar forums because I have taken up an old hobby of playing guitar. Actually I've been modifying and building them too. Here is a pic of 5 of my current players. I have two other projects still in the build stage. Well that's what I've been up to. Any of you old time members still here?

    Macky!!! What the duck? Sorry could not resist. I actually have #42, a slightly smudged #97 and... one with no number ready to engrave or leave blank. I may hold on the the blank one and engrave Wavmixer on it. If I recall correctly, back in 2006 you were already on your 3rd Evo?

    2 Evos? Tell me one belongs to your wife and you are not a hoarder. Nice garage art, I have an old Evo VIII dealership poster in my garage too.

    no sir, both mine. i have a Sportback base as a daily driver too:





    the Mercury Gray is being mothballed, so yeah, a hoarder would be an appropriate term

    Sweet looking guitars; i really like that SG and the natural finish Strat.

    Well then Macky, it would appear as though we are neighbors.

    Thanks Apex. The SG was stripped down to the wood, all electronics and hardware were replaced. I made the wood pickguard and other parts replacing all of the plastic pieces. Both guitars have intricate electronics modifications. The Strat started as a neck as was built from the ground up. Then I replaced the neck. The trend now seems to be taking a new guitar, roughing it up and calling it a "relic" in attempts to make it look old and well used. So I decided to go a step further with a sunken ship theme. All antique brass hardware and a body designed to look as though it was made from wooden ship planks.
