Nice swag. I hope you get it all. , and if you get the Rick, I hope you are left handed.

Of course I'm a lefty lads.

I've just never been able to afford a left-handed bass or guitar.

I play right-strung instruments upside-down, believe it or not, because I had to borrow for years.

That's right. All them bass tracks are done with upside-down instruments.

fuck adversity.

I can vouch for that, Bobbketeers! He's an upside-down kinda guy, in an upside-down kinda world.

Working on scoring that opium den for you, Robert.

Just for the rekkid...

I already knew about the reverse-a-string-a-upside-down-a-lefty-aladocious - I just meant I was going to mention the Ric would be a great gift!

A Ric in an Opium Den would be ass!

So, you like that little Wurlitzer? Doesn't look like it has all 88, though.

(BTW, as an off-topic note. I know you're a Beatlemaniac... Did you catch that interview David Dye did with George Martin yesterday on World Cafe? Great stuff. I like the part where he talks about the record cutting lathe that ran off a stone weight. Link.)

Niiiiice. Christmas star for Mssr. Gas. I missed this but won't now.

The more bits I hear of "Love" the more inclined I am to actually not hate it. Christ, that Harrison demo of "Weeps" with the strings? woah.

Yeah, not sure what's onboard the Wurli. I think 60-something? But what a rock machine it is. Someday I'll find one to keep the Red Lady company. I'd love to take either one out based on the gig. Wurlis scare me a little because tuning involves sanding bits of solder off of the "reeds" or adding it. Sounds scary. Plus there's some electronics. The Rhodes is so simple that if it busts on the road you can almost always fix it quick.

Bobby, you might enjoy this book and interview about left handed guitarists, and whether they played lefty guitars, righty guitars restrung, or righty guitars upside down.

Check out the book excerpt at that link. It's a PDF, but worth the time it takes to load.

I think I can hook you up with most of this list. However, the 19th century family of immigrant Chinese, looking to be wasted on sweet Shanghai opium? Might have to back-order that one, and I can't make any guarantees on freshness.
