    This guitar will always be on my list. I missed the boat back in the 70's when I found a Jetglo (black like Tom Petty's) one at Manny's in NYC for only $475.
    RICKENBACKER 362-12

    Welcome back Anders!  Long time no see!  I remember you from a while back.  You had some videos of you performing, I think?  Are you still playing?

    Tomfest, make sure you check out the mall at Hollywood & Hiland. It's just a few steps from the Magic Castle. Lots of shops and restaurants.

    Thanks Marion. Tomfest, check out this 24/7 restaurant 50's diner style. Walk from hotel down N. Orange to Hollywood Blvd. Straight across the street is the Roosevelt Hotel, on the ground floor is a full glass door with the number 25 on it, go in, that's the restaurant. It's called "25 Degrees". take a red leather booth or walk up to the counter and have a seat to eat there. I ordered the Hamburger and an order of fries. The order of fries must have been 5 pounds! They filled me up and then they brought this huge hamburger that had to be at least 1 pound.  I couldn't finish it. Of course that burger and fries will set you back about $30. Here is a link for the restaurant with a few  pictures.

    Yeah, try the "Magic Castle" - 7025 Franklin Ave. Phone- 323-851-0800 and ask for Gretchen. Opt for a 1 bedroom suite on the 1st (ground) floor. Reg rooms are a bit small. The place reminds you of a 60's motel that the Rat Pack would have hung out at! It's a short walk (1/2 block) to Hollywood and Hyland. That intersection has a subway stop, Grauman's Chinese Theatre, El Capitan Theatre and the Disney Malt shop, plus you are on The Walk Of Fame with all the shops. 9 blocks up the road is Hollywood and Vine where Capitol Records is. A block the other way is Sunset Strip where The Viper Room is and way down Sunset is Mel's Diner. Beyond Sunset is Santa Monica Blvd where you'll find The Troubadour. BTW, I just had the chicken at Roscoe's, I'm not much on waffles. We had to wait for a table because there were about 30 of us together from here at the Farm. Here are some links for you.

    Got tickets for the 2nd show at the Troubadour.  Looks like I'm off to L.A. in April.  My wife is off work that whole week so I'll either try for the new Star Wars exhibit at Disneyland, or maybe a ball game.  I've never been to Dodger Stadium.  I need to check if they're in town then.

    LOL, not really. It's just the stuff I worked so hard for all my life. Now I have some stuff and it's time to be proud of what I've worked for. That's all, nothing more, nothing less.

    This is the 1st Rickenbacker I bought back in Dec. 1966. I now have 7 RIC's including the George Harrison 360/12 V64 signed by Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers at The Gorge in Washington State. Anyway, here my 1st RIC. 12 pix in all.
