Any of you from the DC area ever own a Bradley guitar from Veneman's Music? My first electric was a white Bradley Strat that I put Seymour Duncan hotrails in. I loved that guitar.

No, but I remember them very well (I lived in the DC area for 20 years). I loved going to that store. I even traveled from PA to Rockville, MD back in the early 80's just to buy a Marshall JCM 800 half stack from Venemans.

They say you can't go home again, but you can go to Carter Vintage Guitars in Nashville!

Had a Bradley P-bass for a bit that I got bought from a friend. I did replace the neck with a Mighty Mite one I also got from Veneman's! And then I sold it to buy a 'real' Fender bass.
I think I also have at least one "Studio Series" pedal. Analog delay maybe? And a fuzz pedal that sounds like an angry jar of bees!...it was their in-house cheep pedal line.

Ari Veneman, along with Chuck Levin and Victor Litz (peace be upon them) and Bill Higgins (Bill's Music) were really wonderful guys who championed local musicians.
