  1. Added the guitars to the mix this morning. I'd forgotten I'd lent out the Thunderbird and had to get her back in the sake of completeness.

  2. She is very cute isn't she 🙂 Also shes a bit mad. Welsh terriers are known to be a bit head strong which she is.. But she is lovely none the less.

  3. Not a lot here.. We are setting up a tablet for my mum so she can skype the grandkids... So I popped out to pick it up.. The hardest bit is going to be getting my mum to learn how to use it.. She doesn't do technology... When I picked it up though at my sisters home I had the most painful moment yet in this whole thing. My sister has a lovely dog called Olive (Welsh terrier). We are very good friends and I haven't seen her for weeks. In order to be sensible my sister just left the tablet on her front door so I didn't go in the house or anything, but my niece Betssie wanted to say hell

  4. Got this BEAUTIFUL new 1960 Hummingbird with fixed saddle. There was very little info on this model online, and I didn’t get to try it at a store before buying it, so I was a bit nervous. But not only does it look beautiful, but it sounds great too. A note about the case though, I kept hearing it was “period correct”. It’s very nice, very plain and simple. Was surprised at the purple lined interior, and lack of any branding. The headstock area is VERY snug to the point that I have to be very careful when putting it back in the case. Little to no room on the sides. It’s a very sm

  5. I'm not a pianist. I sit down to a keyboard and muddle through a handful of chords with one hand and try to connect them with a single note run with the other. I don't read music, never taken lessons, and likely never will. I do enjoy having keyboards around, and true to my nature that is evident in stringed instruments, I have no aversion to dragging more home. I had a 1920 Mendellsohn upright piano given to me in 2012. It was more or less in the way downstairs so I gave it away in 2018. No regrets about that act, as it went to a young teenage girl who fell immediately in love with it.

  6. And the blue Ovation at top right? ....I'm assuming it's an Ovation Deacon or a Breadwinner? You should've met Rev David Lee.........................🎸

  7. Amazing collection Krashpad. The checkerboard one is epileptogenic however if one stares too long. What is it? I don't see pickups (or anything on the face). I'm at work today. The place is deserted.

  8. I own a 2008 Dove and 2002 J-150 (J-200 without binding). Id say the main diff is the super jumbo is more balanced, while more bottom end with the Dove. I really like the Dove a lot, even more than my Hummingbird, but, the J-150 is just too good and gets 80% of play.

  9. No, it's not just you. That guitar might be in need of an exorcism.

  10. Funny how language evolves.... "LOCKDOWN" use to be a term only used in prisons.

  11. Apparently nobody wants to hear it but if you look at the percentage of positive tests you will see that it is going down every day: https://www.politico.com/interactives/2020/coronavirus-testing-by-state-chart-of-new-cases/ Perspective is important too. Look at these number for Influenza this season: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/preliminary-in-season-estimates.htm

  13. 25/50 Les Paul, 3-pickup Artisan, '54 staple pickup Custom (I'd settle for a reissue), Johnny Smith, Byrdland, L4, L5, L7 and all the other f-hole classics, Super 400 and Western Sky, some of the recent ES-types......to name a few. Charlie Christian's ES150.....and some of the big acoustics too. @merciful-evans I have a lovely 2013 ES175 - though it has a Bigsby. When times are better you must visit.

  18. I love to improvise. In the room I use for music, I've been playing Pandora through my sound system and jamming mostly to Gary Moore, Miles Davis, and John Mayall. The playlist is not that long for each artist, and I'll often repeat a song I like until I've got it down. It has given me a renewed respect for, familiarity with, and understanding of, each artist's music... and I'm having fun with it.

  20. I'd just go back to my youth when my parents, brother, sister, and grandparents, aunts and uncles where still alive, I had no idea I would outlive all of them. I miss them very much.

  22. The best neck I ever played was an Explorer in the early 80's. I used a Les Paul Custom back then and I wish I'd tried different guitars. There are guitars I'd like to try now, but most shops have an air of 'Why are you in here'?
