  1. That's tough Las, sorry to hear it. I know your pain its horrible. I had my L5 slip and choke my sciatic nerve causing pain all down my buttocks and left leg straight down to my toes. Pain was unbearable I couldn't stand straight or walk. About all I could do to relieve the pain some was lay on my side with a pillow between my legs and take 5 motrin every 4 hrs. After two weeks of hoping it would resolve on it's own with no results I went to see a chiropractor. I didn't have much understanding of exactly what they do but I needed relief so I went. It was nothing short of a miracle! He too
  2. Nature at it's finest!! Beautiful looking and sounding guitar. Loved your sound clip!
  3. Well that makes me think that maybe they will be on their way out of production. I was reading another thread that said it showed a lot of current guitars as discontinued. Perhaps this is the clearing of those? It would be sad to not have this beauty in their production line. Just looked at their site they don't show it there anymore. Wow whats Gibson up to?
  4. Lol Sorry you knows I know some wives will kill me! What a great deal though right? I have a used one I paid 3700 for a year ago. It's a amazing guitar, easy to play definitely a good one for barre chords for me. And loud as a piano!! lol Not to mention drop dead gorgeous as well!
  5. I just can't help myself to look even though I"m not in the market. I just love to see what Wildwood has and listen to their clips. I came across this yesterday. Great price for a new SJ200 Western Classic. Looks to be new it isn't listed in their used section and no mention of it being used. Its actually one of two listed at the same price. I've never seen a new one not in the high 5K to low 6K range. Great deal for someone who is in the market http://www.wildwoodg...egoryID=433&n=6
  6. I'm just starting on the Piano, Izzy. I never had any interest in it before but suddenly started thinking about it a few months ago and now have a piano! I'm finding it much easier than guitar, which is probably because I have musical background now. I've only had the piano for less than two weeks but can play quite a few songs. I'm starting slow with an instructor making sure I have proper hand positioning and not creating any bad habits from the beginning. I read sheet music but got lazy on the note reading since in guitar you can get away with tab usually, so I'm working on that and hav
  7. He's one lucky kitty to not have been hurt. I had the same type thing happen a few years ago and am in danger of it starting again. My neighbor feeds the strays so they hang around of course. They then breed of course. It can get chilly even here in Miami so the mother cat will take her kittens into the car engines for warmth. I would have to open my hood and check and remove kittens if need be before I could take the kids to school every morning. One kitten didn't make it out from under the hood one of the times, it was very disturbing for years to my kids and myself. I then bought a cage fo
  8. Izzy, I have two daughters and I would not let either of them have another thing to do with this person. If all was innocent with him he would have most likely been honest with you and told you about his "offense". Especially since it was so easily discoverable. The fact he was looking for a female singer to work with is alarming given his background. I'm suspecting he is very slick with how he has disclosed his photography ability to you making you feel it was all your idea to pose for him. The legally blind thing is most likely a bunch of bull as well. You lucky your friend did some researc
  9. I have the Sunbeams 12-54 on my hummingbird now. I put them on a few days ago and like them so far. The birds previous owner said he used Martin SP PB or John Pearse PB. His liking was the Martin over the John Pearse but I'd read so many good reviews on the JP I decided to try them first. I liked the way they sounded but after a week they started feeling dirty and dull to my fingers. I took them off after two weeks. I don't know if it was just me but I also thought they were making my low E sound too sharp. But that could be me I obsess over simple open D chord for some reason. But also this
  10. Thats a very interesting story behind your title of Vitez! At least your family once had a castle. My grandmother lived in a English Tutor and my sister and I thought it was a castle when we were little. Thats as close as I come. I have visited and it's quite impressive to see the soldiers guarding the Tomb. I was reading thru the history of the Tomb and learned the remains in the middle tomb of the Vietnam veteran placed in were later identified thru DNA as First Lieutenant Michael Blassie, and removed. How interesting, I'm not sure I ever knew that. If I did I certainly forgot. T
  11. Perfectly said!! Thanks Searcy
  12. Holy Cow, your ancestor has his own Wikipedia page!! Nice going Bence, do we need to call your Sir Bence or anything like that? lol Also if you live in a castle I vote you to host a Gibson meet up for us all?
  13. Thanks Moparguy! I'm glad these pics made it thru the years. I found some great old family photos at my moms and put them on cd's recently. Here's to your uncle's 20 years of service!! Go Navy! Wow the Marines! My dad left high school early but still graduated somehow. His senior picture has him wearing his uniform and is coincidentally on the same page as my father in law in his uniform. My dad guided planes coming in onto the carrier. It was probably one of the safer spots to be. I can't imagine the horrors some had to endure during the wars. Glad your dad had his chance to
  14. Happy Memorial Day weekend everybody. I know this holiday is about all those that died during service but I wanted to give a shout out to all you Veterans, and those in service now, out there! It's hard to think what we would do without all you brave men and women. You guys make America what it is. Strong and Proud!! I have some fun pictures of my dad during WW2 thought I'd share them with you all. Hope you enjoy and please add your own if you have any! The USS Ranger group shot, my dad in there somewhere. :) Asbury Park, NJ home on leave with buddies. My dads in the
  15. In Miami the land of show off what you have I've seen soccer/baseball moms arrive in Bentley's! You just gotta laugh. I was thinking something sporty like a Corvette too Izzy! For the electrics anyhow. All American and Hot!! For the Acoustics? Maybe a Jeep?
  16. Yes, there is a Strat and Bass version as well. There is also the Blue Floral version of Strat, Tele and Bass. I think the main things Ryan and I both were looking for was a nice Tele that was unusual.This is accomplished with the Pink Paisley quite well. Another aspect of this guitar, for me was the fun of possibly getting in early on a good collectable. They began the reissues in 84, mine is a 93 they are highly regarded for their quality, so a win win. On that same thought I also was looking at the Fender Plus and Deluxe from the early 90's. Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead used or still
  17. Good Idea, even though I had to leave my 02 cents worth as well. I love that they have it for Rhythm!! I was curious how it was regarded in the Rhythm catagory. I've seen some great finger style done on it here but no so much strummed songs. I tried one out in GC recently, it was a standard and felt and sounded amazing. I'm finally getting the finger style a bit. Took my brain a long time to have both hands doing something. I can see why it excels at it, it's just easier on that guitar! I see now what all the fuss is about with the J45! Got me thinking about selling my Taylor and buying
  18. My favorite thing in the whole wide world to do, play guitar outdoors! I was playing on my daughters deck in the Rockies enjoying the view when a hawk came and circled for a good amount of time. Think he was listening to me. Probably thought there was another bird crying for help! lol
  19. I'm not saying either way what happened here in the Gibson case, but do be aware companies often have to suck up and admit to things they are not guilty of because fighting the government can take years and years of legal battles costing the company way more than the agreed upon fine. The only ones making out is such cases are the attorneys. The company my husband is with has had admit to wrong doing and pay such fines in the millions or face possibly being forced bankrupt by the SEC. And mind you they are a huge company and a year later it was determined by the SEC that they were indeed not g
  20. Beautiful guitar! And nope it wont be your last as already stated. Once you are accustomed to the Gibson family of beautifully finished and lovely sounding guitars your hooked! Enjoy!
  21. "A very nice room, but not a music room really - more like a bar/lounge with plenty of booze up the back." Just what I thought too, thats a bar room not music room. My little collection and my dining room work fine for now. And gives me the excuse not to entertain much. The first thing in my mind when I saw the picture though was, GET THOSE GUITARS AWAY FROM THE WINDOWS!!
  22. Good score Ryan! I was thinking the same as you last year. I wanted a tele but didn't want to spend a lot, got mine for 900 shipped, and I also wanted something a little different that also had a good rep. These Teles made in Japan are known for their quality and great sound. My instructor borrowed mine to use in one of his professional recordings. He was a little afraid he may take some flack for the pink Tele but once he played he said they would not be laughing any longer. He reported back they all wanted one by the end of the recording session. Only problem I have with mine is due to my v
  23. Thats great your enjoying it! There is quite a satisfaction in working with your hands as Milo said.. Had an idea for you I didn't see mentioned earlier for when your ready to start your venture. I help run a church thrift shop in Coconut Grove, right outside Miami..We have many pieces of furniture come in that need repair and refinishing. The pieces that are worth salvaging we sell as is. Since we are a church run shop all of our merchandise is donated thus allowing us to sell these pieces very cheap and still make money for the church. So you may want to check out some in your area if you ge
  24. Bence, More great pictures! The field of poppy's is amazing! Love the rapeseed pics too they look a lot like goldenrod that grows wild in places here. Pippy, That is a beautiful shot you got even though on a cell! Nice place to take a walk. Our Royal Poinciana trees should be in bloom next month and are truly something to see. Pics to follow.
