I thought so at first but doesn't it have a few more switches then a standard Jaguar? Did they make a Jaguar Custom?

It's a Jag at the end of the vid if you pause it it clearly reads Jaguar, I'm sure Roy could have any guitar configuration that him and Leo could dream up.



Man that guy could play!:smile:
I remember watching He Haw as a kid mesmerized by Roy's playing. I looked up at my Mother and said I want to play guitar I was 5. I mowed lawns all summer to buy my buddy's Tesico.

Frank Robinson, dead at the age of 83. He was maybe the greatest baseball player of all time. He could hit for power, average and run the bases. In right field few if any could get to the ball as fast as him, and he had one of the best arms in the game, not to mention he's the only man to win MVP in both the National and American Leagues.

I had the privilege of seeing him live at Wrigley Field on quite a few occasions and he was the best I've ever seen live!

May he rest in peace. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/07/obituaries/frank-robinson-dead.html

We're very lucky to have both leagues represented here! I actually was a wee lad in Cincy when Robinson was with the Reds but we never went to Crosley Field. He was with the Orioles by the time we moved here. I'm a Cub fan and saw all the other NL greats- Clemente, Mays, Koufax etc. etc. and we went often enough to Comiskey and saw Mantle and other AL greats. Robinson had such an awesome career!

Frank Robinson, watched him play at Crosley field when I was a Little Leaguer. I think Pete Rose was playing 2nd then. Remember Big Klu?

The Reds not only had a young Frank Robinson, but they also had Pete Rose and Vada Pinson.
I used to go to Wrigley to see the SF Giants, Willie Mays, Jim Ray Hart, and Willie McCovey. The Braves had Hank Aaron, Eddie Matthews, and Joe Torre.
I saw Stan (The Man), Musial, a couple of times, he was a favorite of my father who was born and raised in the same area of SE Pennsylvania.
Not to mention the great Cubbie's of the time Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Ron Santo, and Lou Brock.
It was a great time to watch the game in The Friendly Confines!

I remember when their TV show aired I was in 8th grade and one of my good friends Jim Sass invited a bunch of us over to watch the show every week, both his parents were deaf so they didn't mind the noise.

How many of you know that Michael Nesmith's mother invented Liquid paper and made a fortune from it? Or that Micky Dolenz played Corky in the TV series Circus Boy?

RIP, Peter.

Yeah, unlike the rest of the Monkees, Mike Nesmith lived large as an adult thanks to his mother's fortune. Davy Jones never lived up to what many thought he would become. When he died, one of his projects he was struggling to complete was turning an old church in PA into a Monkees museum. Even though none of them ever really made a long lasting impact in Hollywood, I have a feeling a retired Monkee probably makes out better than a retired painter. After all Jones did own a string of race horses when he died!

Stephen Stills auditioned for The Monkees but the producers didn't think he was right for it so he urged Peter Tork to try out for it. Mike Nesmith wrote Different Drummer which was Linda Ronsdat's first hit with The Stone Pony's. Nesmith was a very early music video producer. Also recorded several albums of his own with The First National Band. His mom made a lot of money on liquid paper but he did alright on his own.
