  1. Thanks Eric. I have an OM28v also. I love the vintage neck but I'm sure my playing is not up to par with yours or BB's.

    I just had to get it out after listening to a little bit of Willie this morning.

    All these recent posts of hats on a guitar "stick" are creating some guitar envy, especially HJ and Eric discussing their Martins. Here's my Stetson Panama on a Westerly RI built Guild DV6 NT HR.

    How about a Wormser on a prop of my 1946 Luscombe Silvaire 8e share-o-plane. The prop is kind of a stick.

    That works! Fantastic vintage airplane. Being a 1946, I find it interesting that so close to post WWII a civil plane was in production. What country is this manufacture?

    The Luscombe was first designed in 1937 and I think entered production the same year. Ultimately, about 5,800 were manufactured until production ceased in 1960. I think what kept them flying was that they were used by the Civilian Pilots Training Programme started in 1940 in anticipation of the US potentially entering WWII and the programme continued throughout the conflict. As these aircraft were used to train pilots (like the more widely used Piper J-3 Cubs), it seems that the War Department authorised their continued manufacture.

    This particular one was "born" on 16 October 1946 and was imported to England in 1986. She is a real stick and rudder aircraft, non-aerobatic which is my only complaint. I just took my daughter up for her first flight today in her as a Father's Day thing [emoji16].

    Thank you for the history. I'm more into the military side of aviation (WWI Specialty) but this story is really interesting to me. It is a beauty, and I am greatly impressed.

    Thank you kindly. There is a replica Fokker and Sopwith triplane at my airfield (all grass) which has been in continuous operation since 1917 I think. When I went to preflight the Luscombe yesterday, we stumbled on the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Spitfire and Hurricane preparing for a display as it is the queens birthday. These very professional and busy pilots and ground crew generously gave us a private tour. This Spitfire flew in the Battle of Britain. One of my relatives was a Free French pilot KIA in 1943. Lest we forget - whatever side.

    I do not want to hijack this hat thread further, but leave you with this. Note my son is wearing a 30's blocked straw (I am actually jealous of the block, just too small and he thinks I am crazy [emoji1]), so I guess it has a hat link.

    Thank you. This made my day. To be in the presence of an actual Battle of Britain Spit would bring me to tears.

  15. Great job on the build. Intonation means success! I've never built a partscaster but I have a MIJ Stratocaster that I have always wanted to relic, but never have.

    Its funny that the OP started this thread. The day I got caught in a downpour in the Quarter I was about 2 blocks from the Hotel. I set the Open Road on the post to dry. Thought it looked picture ready. Never gave it another thought until I seen this thread. I knew I had the picture in the cloud somewhere.
    Funny how the Universe works.

    Nice stick. I've never seen one with an antler handle. Very cool. Gives me some ideas.
