Oh, and I really dig what you said about the Hallmark bridge pickup! Cool...
Yeah, I'm afraid the affordable Firedome Reissue was just wishful thinking, but it sure would be a great Hallmark "accessory".
Veenture, I really like the avatar, although there are some aspects of the original album cover I like even better . That's my favorite Ventures album: Tomorrow's Love, Gone Gone Gone, and (of course) Slaughter on 10th Ave have been favorites for about 45 years. That lead sound has always been kind of hard to replicate (a Red Rhoades fuzz box might help?), but the 60 Custom gets me much closer right off the bat than the Gretsch Nashville, Strat, or Jazzmaster.
John, you got great taste....that's my favorite Ventures album and songs too!
Maui - cool guitar and cool ride!
