ZZ Tops cover of Viva Las Vegas is freaking awesome. Definitely worth a listen.

New YouTube Channel

Started a new YouTube series called the Crappy Guitarist. Basically as a below average player what does gear actually sound like if you're not gifted :)

Please take a look and provide feedback and thoughts.

Netflix has a ZZ Top documentary that is really excellent. Watch it if you get a chance.

Re: Black Paisley finish

I've got a Paisley Love Rock that might be a 2002 model. Looks awesome, it's pink not black. Sounds great, not as good as my '78 GT Love Rock but that guitar is amazing in every way possible but weight.

OK how did I miss this thread!!!

The first car I ever bought was an '81 Datsun 280ZX. Would love to have a 240 retro modded with a Infiniti 3.7. Big fan of the older Datsun's.

Re: What's the Big Deal with this LS-160?
