Luthier License
Cool Plates
I'm starting a collection of instrument, music, and luthier plates. Send me a photo of an interesting plate, and I'll post it right here in the Gallery of Greats. You can either e-mail a JPEG, or send a clear snapshot via USPS.
I suppose you can guess who belongs to this one. . .
This one, too.

Randy Cordle: "A few years ago I requested this plate, and was told it would be issued to me. A few days later the secretary of state's office called and refused to issue it because it was "crude". I tried to convince them that it was a commonly used term for an accordion, but nothing would change thier mind. I asked for my initials and a number instead, which they aggreed to and I recieved the plate to place on my car. About six months later I recieved a call. . . 'This is the Illinois Secretary of State's office...I'm afraid there's been a terrible mistake! The plate you were issued, RAC 16, is already in use on another vehicle. We would be glad to issue you any other available plate...' When I asked for SQZBOX 2, she said, 'Sure. That would be no problem at all.' The State works in strange and mysterious ways."
