Dean Guitars has a model called the Hardtail. It's a PRS kinda looking thing that runs for around $1500 and is apparently quite the guitar for the money. I understand that they'll probably have to bury you with the '68, but I'd sure love to see what you could do with a Hardtail. They have a forum on their website as well and I throw your name in when ever I get the chance. Right now there's a thread regarding dream endorsees and I thought about you immediately. Here s the link to the guitar page on their site if you ever want to check it out. Lon
