    Thanks, never heard of such things. Sent back to be welded, that's crazy! 😮 chasAK

    Dead Strings

    I agree that there does come a point when deed strings have intonation problems. I like the sound of broken in new strings. As they start going dead I kind of like the punchy sound. I change them when I get tired of the dead sound and want to liven things up a bit, or when they start having intonation problems. I would be interested in hearing some of the bass stories. I am not familiar with them. When I was a bass player I would clean my strings with alcohol (not Jack Daniels). It would get me a couple more weeks. I would typically do it twice before I got new strings. I played a lot back then but don’t even have a bass anymore. Unfortunately I have not been playing my j45 much lately. chasAK

    Dead strings have a unique sound: quick decay and punchy! chasAK
  4. A locked and loaded HB, I like that! Not far from my bed is my 1943 GI 45. Unfortunately it's not a Gibson :( chasAK
  5. I'm not familiar with the j29 but the Songwriter Deluxe is a sweet guitar! chasAK
  6. Mine was a Kay electric with an amp built into the case.
  7. tov meod, I'm sure it was a real honor for you to appear on his show. chasAK
  8. The first thing that comes to my mind in the top picture is a reaction to the material on the stand.
  9. I hear ya man, “If life is a bowl of cherries why am I always in the pits?” (A clever title to some book I never readJ) No offence or controversy intended to anyone, and certainly no desire to view this mess as trivial – I’m sure it is real!

  10. When I bought my j45, I think in 2009 or 10 there was a Hummingbird TV and an AJ on the wall. The Hummingbird was the loudest of the three and sounded great. The j45 was quieter but also sound great. Being a man of little means the J45 went home with me, with no regrets! Charlie
  11. Sad indeed, I'm sure it's a great sorrow for the family. I remember when my kids started leaving the home and spreading out, we decided that everyone should make it a priority to attend the weddings (we have 11 kids). Sofar it has worked. OWF has been missed here and will be remembered here for along time. Prayers to the family.
  12. Wow, that was fast! Nice catch, I’m sure you will put it togood use.
  13. I'm going to be in Cincinnati the beginning of next month. Does he have an open show room for guys with no money? Charlie
  14. I have the doughnut look. I was backpacking with a bunch of boy scouts a couple years ago. Sitting around the camp fire one of the kids said he thought I ought to get a tattoo. I said really. He said yea, get one of a guy pushing a lawnmower on the top of head. I guess there is no respect now-a-days!!
  15. The DR Sunbeams 12s are round cord and have less tension and a loser feels than the typical 12s. I have no idea how they sound on a 35.
