The factory Guzzi GP racer of that name has been resting in peace since 1961.  I guess this must be somebody unrelated to Moto Guzzi... :wink:

Nothing like the sound of Dick Dale....Deltones... ..Dick's reverb drenched tone straight off the beach near Fullerton Ca...Fender reverb unit....amps and a sparkle Gold Stratocaster strung with ridiculously heavy strings....and brought back to the masses by Tarrantino with the sound track for Pulp Fiction.
