Semi-famous Donnie visit...

I haven't been back to this site in ages but it was the first place I thought of and I knew some of you guys are into these and I loved them as a kid, so I thought I'd share. I'm a tech in the LA area and this guitar came in for some setup work.

Can't thank you enough, I've been after the data on that for near 20 years. Now if I could only get it from Nigel's also!

Chris is a little less friendly...not sure I can just ask him about it. But I'll mention it to Michael and see if he knows about it.

Come on guys, Nigel knows that you're not even supposed to look at a guitar, let alone touch it! If you start to ask questions about it, you're going to take away it's sustain!

Still have to try, and then I still need Dweezil's and Iggy Pop's!

Re: Semi-famous Donnie visit...

So Rich? Slight update for you and the others here. I talked to Michael when he picked this up, and all three of them got Donnies. So Harry Shearer has one too somewhere. Also of note, as a return "thank you" gift, the three of them got together, bought Joe an autoharp and had Donnie Hunt paint it, and gave it to Joe! So Satch has a Donnie autoharp somewhere as a gift from Spinal Tap.

Re: Semi-famous Donnie visit...

I wonder why Joe never mentioned that LOL

Glad he told you, I've added it to the spread sheet but I'd give your left nut for the data!
