Re: Is this an early 60's Ludwig Acrolite?

Re: You don't see many of these things around anymore, do you?

Re: You don't see many of these things around anymore, do you?

That may be one of Bill Maley's old videos. I recall him having a 25" at one time. I've had to chance to buy a 23 and a 25 and should have.
