  1. This past weekend we got booked into one of our favorite local joints on Saturday 5th, 8 to midnightish. Like old times. Except new owner, trying to figure out what bands he wants in there this summer. And he added a pool table. Sunday 5th, 3pm - 7pm out on the deck at a joint on the bay. It's a good one, we like playing that place, she is setting up her schedule for the summer, we'll get a few more out this one. YaY. rct

  3. Some of the worlds greatest minds are clashing for the title but who will be victorious?! Coming in on the left we have BBP with monetized intellect and fluency in the language of the common man On the right we have Whitefang the grammatical fanatical. His writing may be flawed but he has a heart of gold. Although retired as an autoworker, he has dedicated his free time to correcting people on a guitar forum. Both super cool, smart guys. WHO WILL REIGN SUPREME????

  7. That certainly seems to be the case with that commentator. I mean, why get on HER case by blaming her generation for using all the ready-at-hand electronic devices that HIS generation helped develop? Is he trying to claim it's all her generation's fault because their parents drive them to school? As if that relatively small gathering of automobiles are a major factor in climate change and other environmental issues. A few centuries of pouring poison in the waterways and industrial smokestacks effusing toxic fumes in the air apparently don't result in negative consequences, at least acco

  10. We do some Dylan, we do some Neil Young. I am lucky, I get to sing all 4 or 5 of them, not that much really in a 4 set night. They all make me happy, very happy to be able to do them with these guys. We don't think about which was more influential or who sucked and blew chunks at the same time, the crowd doesn't, the bartenders, wait staff and owners don't. It's just good records, why does everything turn into a whining***** fest about who sucks and who doesn't? Weird. rct

  15. Brad, Funny that you should bring up this topic. There is a seller on Kijiji here in Toronto selling an inexpensive Epiphone acoustic guitar, but what makes it a fantastic deal is that it comes complete with a pick!!!!! Now if that doesn't make it too good a deal to pass up, I don't know what does. RBSinTo

  16. Wampler Plexi-Drive Deluxe - it's a pricey pedal but it's 2-in-1. Left pedal gives you a Marshall type distortion. Right pedal is for a boost (think Ibanez Tube Screamer). It covers a lot of bases.

  20. An analogy is the comparison of two things. Look it up in the dictionary "Oh wise one!". You were comparing Nero's actions to Sgt. Pepper's. And I pointed out to you that it was a poor analogy. And it certainly was. You then tried to change the argument. You seem to just enjoy putting other members down when you disagree with them. You get on others about hurling insults, but you do it yourself all the time. And you think you are being so witty about it. So I had to call you out on your poor analogy. And now you have shown that YOU don't even know what an analogy is. I've been a

  22. Amazing how parents of children like Greta Thornberg and David Hogg allow their children to become bitter when they should be enjoying their youth. I suppose it is because the parents know they themselves wouldn't be successful pushing their agenda. So they fill their children with their own biases, wind them up - and put them on a blog hoping to get a call from some local media news reporter who will propel them to national notoriety. Social Media - a two edged sword.

  25. I'm a vet as well. I never was a Sgt. I just play one on the forum. I'm a retired Senior Chief. I did 23 years in two different branches, Navy and Coast Guard. I'm at 20% disability. Who is this Alfred Lord Gordon guy? My advice is get a Martin. I'm on my futon in my Man-Cave at home. I did walk by the Gibson store when they were still in Memphis. That is as close as I got to the breakroom.

  26. I met my wife in 9th grade (Spring 1973). By then I was well on my way as a guitarist, got my first guitar for my 8th birthday, so she knew what she was getting into! She actually has developed an ear for gutiars tho.. One day we were listening to Spotify, the Dilbert McClinton band was playing in the rotation. There was a pretty good guitar solo going on in this particular song, she said "That sounds like a telecaster!"... my chin kind of hit the floor... I just said "yes,,, as a matter of fact, that IS a telecaster.." !!!!!RESPECT!!!!!!!!!!

  32. I know a guy who bought a house not long ago. 10% down & monthly pmts on a 30 year mortgage.. He had the best Tax deduction an average guy can have.. The pmts he made over the next few years didn’t come anywhere near the cost of the house... He just sold it at a $350,000.00 profit after paying off the balance he owed on the mortgage... He is married so that is a Tax free Capital Gain.. Credit used intelligently can be leveraged to be a very profitable means to wealth! There's a Mexican Restaurant in another town we haven’t been to for a while. We thought we’d go & hoped the

  33. When I see the prices of the new Gibson's here in the UK its ridiculous when you look at the poor finishing. Bad nut and fret ends being the main parts. When you look at comparison guitars like PRS, Knaggs etc, the finish is a league above. Then there is the new 'Murphy lab' guitars. Almost doubling the Custom shop prices and it's not even done by Murphy himself. They go on about how authentic they are. The body is authentic, But the plastics are new and the fretboard isn't aged. I can't see me buying a new Gibson for a long time, if ever,

  34. Guitars are the cheapest of instruments. Generally, USA guitars are realistically priced IMO. They just look expensive compared to Asian ones which are not realistically priced. Those are way too cheap. The clever trick manufacturers do is building those cheap guitars down to a price. None of us (even with the skills and tools) could make a guitar that cheap. The Harley Bentons, Vintage, Epiphones, Squiers etc. They are playable and not half bad. Some are even great. Yes they often have krap electrics and hardware made out of coke cans, but its still functional. Guitarists have it m

  35. When I got my first guitar (a new Framus arch top) my father imparted untold wisdom by explaining that every time it sustained a scratch its value would be reduced by one pound. Having an elementary knowledge of mathematics (I was 9), I calculated that after ten scratches the guitar would be rendered valueless, fit only for consignment to the local landfill. Needless to say, when I sold it to get my first electric (a Resonet Grazioso) my Framus was in perfect condition to be sold. Fast forward a few millennia to the recent sale of a pristine Gibson ES-355 I made to my son, who prompt

  36. About the best thing I can say about Dylan is that after hearing one of his songs, I don't suffer the bottomless feeling of depression that Cohen's insufferable droning causes when his dreck is being played. See? There is something good I like about Dylan. RBSinTo

  37. I have great difficulty describing this on the whole, but I'll try. I've been trying to for over a day now, but detail just looks confusing to me. I trimmed what I had and pasted it below for now. Yes, it was a twisted neck, mostly at the top of the board on the treble side, and a much more twisted head-stock in the same direction. It was more than a little bit of twisted neck, though. The exactness that had to happen for both playability factors and to keep strings at a decent relative parallel and free from interference was impressive. (Think in terms of this as parallel to the fret-boa

  38. Ohh nice one man.. Happy playing. The back and sides are beautiful. I once had a 12 String, this one. A Tanglewood.. Was a nice guitar but in the end I just found it a bit of a pain to play and keep in tune so I sold it (plus it was bought by my ex so it had to go).. Was nice though

  44. Sweetwater all the way, but they need a checkbox on the order page saying "Please don't call me unless there's a problem." I would definitely vote against AMS (aka Zzounds, SameDay). I've sent back more than I've kept. No Problem with MF/GC. They will sometimes deal if you call. I would, however, never enter a GC store if I've already showered

  45. Sweetwater is probably the best. You have a selection of guitars to choose from. And they actually send you the guitar that you pick out. Great customer service also.
