    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    I'm not that huge of a Mark or Dire Straits fan, but his Suhr/Pensa-Suhr guitar is one of my dream fiddles.

    If there's a global clear coat shortage in the coming months, I think we can guess where it all went. Holy hell that thing is gorgeous.
