Matty is a little scottish fold cat.  He was born on October 23, 2014 and has grown to become the handsome guy in the family.  A skilled assistant when I do voiceover jobs in my home studio.  Visit his Facebook page and see a lot of photos that make you smile and say meow.

Rickenbacker 325 Lennonized

John Lennon played four Rickenbacker guitars in his Beatle years.  The Rickenbacker 325C58 is a replica of the first of the four, the 1958 Rickenbacker 325 that he purchased in Hamburg before The Beatles became famous.  I have done everything I could to modefy the guitar into the exact Lennon specs.
