    Default DG replica

    Can you guys see this? There are some folks on FB who are producing a documentary called "The Humbler" and I think they will be using crowd-funding. A luthier named Carson Hess has built and donated a very cool replica of Danny's main axe.



    The Human Torch was denied a bank loan.

    The details look pretty convincing!
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.

    Here's the original, before the "dingus plate" was attached:

    Just another form of counterfeiting to my mind. Clever but...
    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

    I think he over-did the checking, but it's a cool effect.

    My favorite part of the whole deal is how Danny bent the switch tip away from his swinging arm.
