  1. The head stock on the upper neck is black, the lower head stock is blond. Maybe a repair or a special order?
  2. I haven't seen one of these for years, looks a little over priced, but they ain't making these anymore, https://boise.craigslist.org/msg/d/middleton-1966-mosrite-joe-mephis/7148404536.html
  3. How about Lollar's ? Jason makes killer minis and soap bar P90s,
  4. Sweet axe! White on black, looks like a tuxedo! You should post a video of you in a tux playing it...
  5. Talking about the Dual Showmans, those could melt hair. I saw Blue Cheer with Eric Burdon and the Animals (that was what they changed the name to just before they broke up) , at all places a drive-in theater in Palm Springs, it was an all day festival, the forerunner to what has become Coachella music festival. This would be 1967 maybe 68,. We parked outside the Drive-in and sat on the rises next to the speaker posts, laid out blankets, and rocked out p, the headliners took the stage after dark and they was a light show on the screen, groovy stuff man! One of the other acts was Sweetwater, they went on to play at Woodstock, I think they played the first night
  6. You probably started a fair amount of sand storms with that set up!
  7. Terry Kath is a good comparison to Hendrix as both so much talent and more potential, I like many of my generation were close in age to the artist that emerged during the 60s and since. ,it is looking at a black and white snapshot from a time long removed from the present. And the artist that died young are frozen in time. Cut down and therefore locked into that level of artistry they had reached. Think of Prince, had he joined the 27 club, (died at age 27) look what we would have missed. And he would have been one of those black and white snapshots forever frozen in time. Hank Garland, perfect example, he was on top of the world, no question one of the hottest players, in demand by all the biggest stars of the time a car accident leaves him crippled with a severe brain injury. He lives in obscurity and fades away. Had it not been for that crash, the sky was the limit,. It's just the way it is, guys like Hendrix are so much more rare , not because they played well, it was an entire package, The Experience. He changed the way other artist approached music. Technically he still had room for growth, that was part of the intrigue of Jimi, we all knew he was going to blow our mind with his next release. Till he couldn't, so now he is the bell bottom wearing whah whah guy with stacks of Marshall amp and flaming strats Showmanship was his power, sadly his snapshot will always be what is in the four records he released. Same with Kath. Garland, Morrison, and others
  8. Should all the Asian people name Li or Lee follow suit?
  9. Aaron Thibeaux Walker AKA T-Bone Walker , the man who inspired BB King and Chuck Berry to play guitar is also the man from whom Hendrix learned the trick of picking with his teeth.
  10. The A system of grading wood is used on other than flamed wood, it is better explained on this link https://www.timbretone.com/GradingSpruce.html As you can see, it is also used for grading all types of tone woods Here is another informative source about tone wood grading https://www.lmii.com/blog/2017/10/07/wood-grading/
