Q: Hey, Bobby, what's that snakeskin Stratocaster you play? Have you been in touch with Frankie?I hope everything's good with you. FG
A: Hey Franck, great hearing from you, Frankie was in Sacramento and I haven't spoken with him for a while. I usually check with Tim Brisson, his friend and guitarist who has been helping Frankie out. I need to give him a call. I'm well here, The guitar is an ESP that was custom made by Phil Kubicki. I got an endorsement thru a buddy of mine and the guitar was sent to me. I had no idea that it would be what it is (anaconda). Man, I definitely been diggin' on what you're doing! You always were great but it just keeps getting better my friend. All the best to you and yours Franck. Best, Bobby
