Note it says :"purchasing a new hand built guitar".....

Is that 'no machines'? 'some machines?' 'hand built on a machine?' 'strings put on by hand after the robot did the rest?'

No, it says'new hand built'....

Doesn't say whether it has to be any good.

Never criticize a musician until you have walked a mile in his shoes. Then you will be a mile away and you will have his shoes.

I'll second this although I don't know what a dog/cat is. I imagine it's the head of a dog on the body of a cat, because the other way around just seems silly [woot]

Actually, the "/" means either a dog or a cat. However, I suspect that a dat or a cog would also add years to one's life. [flapper] [flapper] [flapper] [flapper]

Of course, the odds of an extended life from buying a hand built acoustic guitar can be drastically shortened if you play at various festivals.....

My band in a van had to get through a massive cordon of police near the festival gates, that were checking everything and everyone and then a cordon of dudes with shotguns on the other side of the gate....we played the first songs way...too fast, but this chap slept on....!

Man, it looks like the party was over by the time you got onstage.

Looks like everyone remaining still had their coolers full of beer, however.

Nice-looking group of lads.

That one is a late Sunday afternoon slot after it started during the early part of the week....

As a glutton for punishment, I played there 3 times in 3 different bands, musical whore I was. :mellow: First time, played at dusk on the Saturday and the place was jumping; next time had endless delays and we played at about 2am Sunday morning with things getting a bit ordinary. I think we got booked after playing at a pub on the band circuit.

There's me 2nd from left on stage on the Sunday afternoon - nobody had a camera in the earlier gigs...:

Hell's Angels Melbourne chapter sponsored that? You were pretty brave just to show up! What could possibly go wrong?
