File under: the year gets even better. A shop-fresh HOLMES custom strap on Dean Wareham's Fano PX6. Dean and his apparently endless powers (see: Galaxie 500, Luna, Dean & Britta) have long played a significant role in my musical landscape, and as it turns out he's quite the gentleman as well. The honor is all mine on this one.
As a side note---purely as an aesthetic object, how awesome is that Fano guitar?
