Re: 70ís Rogers Butcher Block

Finally got around to shining these up, although they were pretty clean when I got them. My first experience with the Swiv-O-Matic and I couldnít get it to my liking, so I put a Rims mount on the...

Re: Gretsch 4105 Snare Strainer

Re: Gretsch 4105 Snare Strainer

Re: 70's Ludwig Vistalite restoration
