Following brown-note's care package idea, I'd like to contribute a guitar. It's an Epihone Les Paul, sunburst, I changed out all the electronics to US components and it has Jimmy Page style wiring / pots. Also, tonepros bridge and tailpiece, and Schaller tuners.

Regards,

Jim

Thanks Sweetwood!!

I'll send a pair of Polams for the amp/care package.

(Brownnote, this is minor, but if you don't have the power switch covered already, I'll send over a Carling on/off/on polarity switching deal. Just let me know.)

Also will think about how to promote the raffle...

how about promoting it on eBay with the 18watt loud and proud! we can all bid it up too!!! put the story on the listing. actually, an all out raffle might generate more cash for the family. we should all promote this best we can. $10 tix?

I don't mind setting up a 'raffle ticket product' on my site. you could use your credit card to purchase as many raffle tix as you like. besides the credit card 1.5% ding, that might be the easiest way to do something like this.

I have a JTM 45 that Mark help me tweak and bias for a killer heavy tone.

carbon comps orange drops, ruby heyboer rs type transformers plexi face and back plate. and chicken heads, mil spec pots etc.

Its built but has no head cabinet.

If someone could set up a preliminary raffle, its theirs.

I figure this could be a test run for the 18watter raffle.

Ill post pics and send it directly to whomever.

I played around with the image of Mark, and came up with this... I'm sure someone else could do a better job... but anyhow...

hey archtop...that looks cool. how about you take it to kinko's and have them screen it in reverse on the back side of some plexi. that could be the 'badge' if you will.

who is building this thing? i vote for dartanion. whoever is in the bay area can meet over his place and we can piss off the neighbors all day:)

oh yeah, has the trailer arrived?

I do not want to over step... I know this is a community.
What you guys are doing for Marks family is unbelievable.
I know Im way out of my league... Im only a player.
But would you guys consider building Mark's "Vajra" model
18 watt? Mine is priceless to me. Of coarse, he gave it to me.
And he had plans for two more.(he was never satisfied...)
I thought in the spirit of all the amps he will never build,
this might be a good idea. Even just using Vajra somewhere
in the name would be a nice tribute.

Again, I will tell Sherry what you guys are doing.
Im sure it will offer some comfort...

THANK YOU
