    Hey Rod,
    Still waiting to hear from Gibson. The owner of the pawn shop is out of town and the other people there won't let me take the truss rod cover off. Which Gibson needs pictures of. So no major updates yet. Although I keep thinking about just biting the bullet for better or worse.

    Hey Rod,
    No longer at the music zoo, the owner and I weren't really seeing eye to eye business-wise. Time to move on and work under my own name instead of being "the guy" at a store.
    I am kind of bummed that J-45 I posted still hasn't been picked up from there, so I'll never know how the customer liked it, oh well.

    Yep BK777, Thats what I do! I am a very soulfull white man that enjoys playing a singing the Blues and R&B.
    Sorry to get off topic with personal rants.We are living through some very 'devisive' times in the USA. The president is devisive and has the Media in tow. The citizenry is split down the middle and this is not the America that I grew up with.
    Its a mess!.......

    I feel that I am doing much better than I deserve for all my vices and rowdiness. I will say that I have a good heart and that it goes out to all in need. I always felt that you are a good person and good 'will' come to you in this adverse time!
    Miss your 'girl touch' on this forum of heathen 'ner-do-wells'-Ha!
    Welcome back...when you will...Magics wait...

    I am sorry to hear that this is happening to you. We never know what awaits us. A good lady friend of mine is going through the same thing. I am lifted by her positive attitude about it and her treatment. It can be beat with the modern technology available these keep the faith! In all honesty, I wish I had the power to heal the whole world of ills.
    Sometimes , I feel that......

    Hi Retro, thanks for the message.I miss being here and the wonderful comraderie. I'm not doing the best right now, got diagnosed with breast cancer and have been doing chemo, so pretty sick some days.And the chemo has caused some neuropathy in my fingertips which makes it hard to play.But, I am still playing & trying to stay connected to the forum for inspiration. Hope you are doing well.

    Thanks for the video, Rod - nicely done, wasn't it?
    The newer pickups are all the 'go' with the guys (and girls?) in their 20s for some reason, but myself would rather eat doggy doodoo than leave the Gibson out in the open.......
