Somalia Aid – Old Black pick-guard for bidding

SDomalia aid with an Old Black plate

Albert auctions a handmade brass pick-guard for a Gibson Les Paul “Old Black” style guitar, top-chromed, like Neil has.

The reason? To help the starving kids in Somalia and neighbouring regions.

The plate is massive chromed brass (250 grams) and has all feed-throughs for the original screw drillings and the humbuckers.

This pick-guard is unique and serves a good purpose, like Love! Many things are running afoul in the world today, but helping the starving kids in Africa is at least far from dogmas.

End of bidding is this Sunday, high noon, European Summer Time (CEST) = GMT+2h.

Thank you, Albert.

thanks to Albert. We raised in an individual action about 1000 € in total. Thimk about that!? Military expense is at least a factor 1.000.000.000 per day.

The world is an oyster.

So I spoke to my old friend Bruce and told him I was feeling it, his loss of Clarence. We talked for quite a while, and there is no need to go into what two old friends had to say to each other at this point, except to say that two old friends spoke to each other about their music, their muses, their partners in crime, their proof, their friendship, their souls and their lives. Ben Keith was my Clarence Clemons. Clarence Clemons was Bruce\'s Ben Keith. When he died last year it touched me to the core. I don\'t want to ever think of any one else playing his parts or occupying his space. No one could. I can\'t do those songs again unless it\'s solo. So I told Bruce, \"Waylon once looked at me and said, \'There\'s very few of us left.\'\" He liked that. I told him when he looked to his right I would be there. That\'s enough. I\'m not talking about that anymore.
