  1. The problem with that statement is its nonsense.. You know you cant give away your dose to anyone, it doesnt work like that. There is no dose specifically for you and wont be as you said you wont be getting one.. You know that and so does every one else. So when you say things like that knowing that its not even possibility, it means what you are saying without saying it, again and again is Im not getting it for what ever reason blah blah. We know.. You have said it over and over.. And the only other reason to say it is just to stir things up with people who do want to get it... Why el

  2. You do it to yourself a bit here by adding comments like... Im giving my shot to anyone who wants it.. Of course its up to you to do what you want.. But you dont have to keep commenting on a thread where you know most people do think they should get it and want it.. What do you expect to happen apart from more people who take your bait...

  4. thank you very much for your beneficial comment. Every forum needs a conceited, big-headed person like you that ridicules people for not knowing stuff they literally havent dealt with before.

  5. IMO The politicians, pundits, propagandists, and posters on social media are the ones to be suspected of not knowing what they are talking about. Fauci, The scientists at the CDC, and the WHO's scientists know more about this than the rest of the world does. And they won't tell you to inject Clorox in you veins to cure yourself. If anyone thinks a politician knows more about infectious disease than Fouci, then they should go to a politician or pundit the next time they get sick. When hundreds of experts agree, and zero experts are disagreeing I tend to think they know what they

  6. Many years ago I met up with a buddy and we did the Philadelphia Guitar Show. I spent hours trudging around the place and actually bumped into my old SG Standard I had as a kid (I would know that guitar anywhere). I didn't have the $1700 the seller wanted so averted my eyes and plodded on in misery, boo hoo. The one other guitar that made me stop dead in my tracks was a figured, natural finish ES-335. It was just WOW! I didn't have the $3000 or whatever it was so just went home. This year it has just been work, buy the guitars I always wanted and try and avoid the diseased hum

  7. Well, it has arrived! Had a couple issues to resolve - tuner on back was loose and a tiny pickup bushing for middle pickup was popped out - but all is resolved. And thanks UPS, the box had a gaping hole in it. Luckily it was packed good enough where it withstood those clowns booting it around their trucks and warehouses. Setup was a**, but I expect this, haha! Truss rod was literally cranked so tight that it made the neck nearly 100% straight. Well, when you're buying a used guitar that's 26 years old, you better know a thing or two I guess. Either way, Music Zoo was super cool and part

  9. Don't waste your time arguing with this guy. He's just here to complain and agitate people and he's always gotta have the last word. Yo can't win. He's apparently always right and knows way better than you or me on anything. I'm still waiting for him to start complaining again about why there isn't more Martin content on a Gibson forum.

  10. Its a feature I havent really bothered using before for whatever reason.. But I was shown this video by Youtube and went to try it out.. This is the video. Its a young girl, Korean I think playing a Jazzmaster. I was just interested in what she had to say. And man, I was almost crying with laughter.. Not at her, but at the translator... Dear ohh dear.. Fender American Professional Ⅱ Jazzmaster × 弓木英梨乃【デジマート・マガジン特集】 - YouTube And cos it wont work if I post the video I have taken some screenshots of what the translate came up with... I promise I havent made any of this up...

  12. I don’t give-a-crap about the politics. Politics ruins friendships and destroys commonsense if people refuse to use it.. My wife had her 2nd shot last week and I get my 2nd on Tuesday morning. I have very little faith in the TV doctors, but I want to get this stuff behind us and hopefully this will be a major step in doing that. Otherwise we’re going to wearing masks for years and we’ll forget how to shake hands.

  13. I just recently picked up a 2020 model - The same model as Twang's. I love this Guitar - I am at the Age where I thought a smaller body Guitar would suit me better - Well that didn't really pan out - I have been playing Dread's most of my life and they are hard to give up. I was lucky enough to find a new HB in a shop near me. After playing it for a bit - I loved it! To me very Warm and Tonally equal across all the strings. I loved the way it felt in my Hands. So I traded my 2019 Martin 000-28 and came home with this model. Not one regret.

  14. This is a very very VERY nice guitar! Plays very much like the HB, sounds amazing, gorgeous looking! I will get an A/B with the HB. I am very pleased, the only thing better would've been a personal delivery from Sheryl.

  15. I bought a new Hummingbird last September and could not be happier with it. I opted for the "Hummingbird Original" model. It has all the same features as the custom shop 1960 model with the exception of the baked top. The baked top model is $1000 more and I don't hear it as $1000 better sounding than the one I got. (I don't hear any difference at all, but am listening to the baked ones on-line and listening to mine in person) Also the 1960 model has no electronics and while some people like that, I occasionally perform in venues that require amplification so wanted a pickup. The 1960 mo

  16. Getting my J&J tomorrow at 5. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I could make something up based on how I feel that particular moment. As I get older, I spend more and more time being thankful about waking up on the right side of the grass. I will take the same attitude after 5 pm tomorrow.

  17. No mask, one mask, two masks: I'd say that is a sign of the experts learning more about how to control this plague. Science learns as it progresses. It makes mistakes along the way and it learns from both it's successes and failures. Having Fauci, CDC, WHO and others change their advice is not a bad thing, it's a good thing.

  19. No although I did spend some time drooling over the 330s but I decided to go with something a little different. I'd been looking at ES-Les Pauls but decided that they would probably feel too small and I understand they're balsa wood light and like the looks of the ES-175 but think they're really more for the jazz crowd and like the look of the Byrdlands but they're too expensive when I happened to stumble across the ES-137 Custom. This is a 2005 case queen, ebony fret board, cat eye fret markers which I've never had and I've always wanted a Gibson with the split diamond headstock inl

  23. This arrived this morning a Collings 002H - 14 Fret. It is almost identical appointment wise to my Collings Dread, but the main difference is this has a 24 7/8 scale length. The neck profile is the same (V) but that 5/8 shorter scale make a huge difference for me. Also uses a little lighter gauge strings so less tension and a lot easier to play. The other differences are that my Dread has a German Spruce top and Adirondack braces with no tongue brace (a canon volumwise) whereas this little guy has a Sitka top and braces with a tongue brace. Both are Rosewood back and sides with herringbon

  24. Poignancy and sorrow aside (as if!) for this being the last song John Prine recorded, I think it is quite the gem. I’ve been listening closely over the last day or two, trying to feel out the nuance and simplicity that make it so. And for the first time in more than a year, I was compelled to actually pick up a guitar for more than 5 minutes. (I’ve been well—just very absent from my musical self. Maybe I’m not alone in this?) I’m sharing a take I did just now, not because it’s so special, but as a way of stepping back into our little circle and saying “Hey...” Time has been un

  26. NighthawkChris wrote exactly what I would offer. We're only here occupying our "seats" for a short time, some are here longer than others, but we've all just go so much time. If buying a boat for 50k is your thing, great! If owning a few high end guitars is your thing, (like it is for some of us) then also GREAT! I don't spend money I don't have and I never really miss the money I've spent on guitars. It's been a part of who I am for 50+ years. One of my best friends can't bring himself to spend more than 300 or 400 dollars on a guitar, he has more ebay transact

  28. I’m fortunate enough to own all three. Don’t think one necessarily has anything over the other two. If I was forced to pick just one, I’d probably go with “the bird.” Not because it’s better, but because it was the “holy grail guitar” when I was a teenager and I always wanted one. Eventually, I realized that there was no real “holy grail,” but instead a bunch of awesome guitars that appealed to me. One can spend himself into the poor house looking for “the holy grail.”

  29. Why do people spend that much on a guitar? Because they can. Guitars are one of these irrational things that defy logic and common sense. It is often an emotional purchase, not a practical one.

  31. Everybody needs to make themselves happy. I'd rather have one Gibson than 50 Epiphones. I'd rather buy a high end Telecaster for 1500 dollars than buy three for 500 each. I don't want a bunch of guitars. I want a few nice ones. I'm an amp guy. I would NEVER in a million years buy some low end amp, period. Much less buy five so maybe I won't get sick of them so much. Whether you have one or ten guitars is more about what you want from it. I had a trumpet when I was a kid that wouldn't tune up to pitch, so no matter how good a musician I was, I always sucked, until I got kic

  32. "Savoring the notion" and "arrived" hit the nail on the head for me. And it has bit me in places I can barely reach with a washcloth. I lusted for a high end archtop for decades, finally got a 1947 L-5 after a boatload of "almosts". It's okay. I wanted a J200 for decades. It was the holy grail. I have two J200s and a J100. They're okay. I spend more time with the HD-28 than any of them. And right behind that, a $450 Martin DM. This is going to sound upside down but... if the TONE is there, the rest will follow. You will ignore the snob factor, the prestige, the Braz vs. Ind

  33. Donno really.. I, as most of you know got a 336 not long ago.. That was 3k (second hand).. Why... Cos I wanted it and for once in my life could actually afford it.. Ever since I first tried one years ago I have just held it up as the best.. It just always stuck with me and when I got the chance I thought hell yes... Didnt need it for sure, and I was under no illusion that it was going to make me a better player or anything like that. In the case of the 336 though there arent many of them about and one of my motivations was, are Gibson ever going to make any more. As it goes I got

  34. Since I've last been on the forum, I've acquired a couple of guitars. I hope I know how to post photos on here.... First on the left is my original 1969/70 Jubilee (my 'beater) Second is the 1975 J-50 my staff gave me when I retired last year. It is now my workhorse Third is my 1979 Dove my bride gave me back in 1980 or 81. Very special to me. Fourth is the 2003 Doves In Flight. Probably the best sounding guitar I have. Fifth is the 2010 Hummingbird 12-String. From Leslie...she says it's the ONLY 'Bird 12-String (Right-Hand) made that year. Sixth is th

  36. So waiting for this one to arrive. It's in transit at the moment, but real excited about getting this one! 1995 Gibson Nighthawk CST3 in antique natural. These don't come up very often, and this is an extraordinarily nice looking one from what I saw in the pics. Already has the Schaller strap buttons too - bonus - and they match the gold HW! The anticipation is killing me waiting for it to arrive... Hopefully it is as good as it looks in the pictures and no issues during transit/delivery.

  38. Hogeye was not removed from here. If he does not come around, it's of his own choosing. I correspond with him on a semi-regular basis. I consider him to be a personal friend. He knows more than he says. He says what he chooses. He's lived more than most of us. I respect his choice to be where he wants to be at any given time.

I am going out on a limb that no one here is an epidemiologist or someone that develops vaccines/medicine, etc. All we have to go off of is what we try to learn where we seek our information - hopefully credible source(s). If we are going down the rabbit hole to discredit scientists and mock their work, then I give up... I would rather have a leader who has the humility to accept solutions from those that know WTF they are talking about. Even if it's wrong, fess up to your error and correct yourself instead of pushing a lie. Again, where's the US in terms of cases and deaths? Are we goin

  46. So I got a mandolin! And I like it a lot! I put up a thread a week or two ago asking about mandolins and thinking about learning to play one. I got all kinds of great responses back from you guys. But the best response I got back was from fellow member Dave F. He told me he would be willing to send me a mandolin if I would make a donation to St. Judes Hospitals. He sent me pics of it, and the case he was sending along. I decided this was a great opportunity for me to get a mandolin, and contribute to a really great charity. So glad I did! I am having a lot of fun playing this thing.

  48. Haha the luthier version of GAS sums it up perfectly! Not sure I can call myself a luthier just yet though I ended up having too much fun with the Jr after I strung it up. Incidentally that should work out well because it allowed me to make a lot of critical observations which I will apply to the following builds. I’m still gonna strip it back down to finish the headstock and give the whole thing a proper wet sanding and polishing but here it is at the moment
