Not a Gretsch, But a Gibson. :D ES-135, the single cutout model and yes in a nice cherry red. Love that thing, it's been through a lot over the years but keep ticking that is for sure...love that warm hollow body sound that just seems to get better with age.



And on a more thread related note. Congrats everyone who submitted a pic, there are so many really awesome shots. Good luck to us all :)

This is my EDC Spyderco Delica Combo Blade. I was on my deck one morning taking photos when I noticed all these baby spiders.

I'm glad I'm not one of the judges, there were a lot of nice entries to choose from! Thanks to Spyderco for putting this on again this year.

Hey guys, I'm new here but I am a lover of all things Spyderco. I saw that Spyderco was doing a calendar contest on Twitter a while back and I decided I would try my luck.

This is a picture of an Endura 4 that I gave my father a while back. He is a locksmith, safe technician, and machinist. He has put this great knife through the wringer and its still going strong and holding an edge. In this picture I wanted to show that Spyderco builds quality knives that are rugged tools and not just shinny collectors pieces.

Awesome work Willamette, you should post more pics on the Picture Gallery or Off topic, even if they are not of Spyderco's.

Thanks BAL!

There were a few projects I did on my EDC dragonfly during my studies; one being a warning sign that was a little gruesome but effective, and two variations with natural and man made materials in 3D. I'll have to dig them out of my storage space, take some pics, and post them in the forums as you have suggested.

Except leprechauns. They have a congenital luck over abundance and can actually suffer serious karmatic issues if supplemented with any extra. In lieu, they prefer to be wished "knobby knees", as for leprechauns the knobbier their knees, the better suited they are for harvesting pots of gold.
