It’s October 1st 2014, and my new homemade DeeBeeCaster™ in “surf green” seems incongruous with impending wet and chill of autumn.
Oh, and I have been running around telling everyone it weighs 5 pounds 3 ounces…but I was mistaken. I must have measured it before it had strap buttons and stings or something because the ACTUAL final weight is 5 pounds, 14 ounces. I am extremely happy when a guitar weighs between 6 and 7 pounds, so anything under 6 lbs makes me happy!
PS: The other photos were taken in Sydney, Nova Scotia a couple of weeks ago during my holiday on Canada’s East Coast. They were done from inside my car…the camera is focused on the rain on the car windows rather than the scenery behind it.
PPS: the book in the guitar photos is about American painters of the 20th Century, published by Time/Life Books in 1969 - so the book itself is “vintage”! It is showing one of my favourite paintings of all time by Jasper Johns called “Numbers in Colour” (1959). I have actually seen this painting in person because it hangs in the Albright-Knox gallery in Buffalo NY, which is under two hours drive from Toronto. Jasper Johns also did one of the coolest Simpson guest spots ever. :D
