  1. I think before we judge these bands, lets not forget how much $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ record company executives have made or stolen from musicians over the years....... And what about all the people that downloaded all that virtually free music from Napster and the musicians received very little if at all any compensation for their work.

    In today's world artist must become much more business oriented in order to protect themselves..... Having a manager just isn't enough these days.... They must have legal counsel.

    What year and country of origin, Duane?

    I find my Korean Epiphone Sorrento fits that description.  I was recently recording something with the Telecaster Thinline and decided to to try the Sorrento too. I thought, "I wonder how this will turn out?" Turned out pretty good. It was louder, harder, meaner and had a rounder, fuller tone to it.

    Still, for my overall choice, it's my ES-175 for most of everything.  I know I own a lot of telecasters, but the ES-175 allows me to play acoustically too. And the neck on that guitar is perfect for my hands.

    it’s a 2007 JL Revolution.....  I believe the husk was shipped from japan, then assembled in Memphis.

    Hey Duane, don't you play Diezel amps? Or was it Mojave amps?

    Jones' use of the 100 watt Diesel and the Marshall Super Bass amp seems to be his foundation. I know they also mix in the Bogner Uberschall and Rivera Knucklhead as needed.  Seems to be the blueprint since the 2006 album, 10,000 Days.

    I have a Mojave Dirty Boy Amp and 4x12 cab running through an Aracom Attenuator. However I have been using my Panama Shamon Amp with 1x12 cab that has a built in attenuator and a DigiTech RP500. Then tones are just unbelievable 

  4. Funny thing with all the guitars I have  I seem to use my Epiphone Casino in many different musical situations.

    Its great acousticly as I can sit with a group of friends and play and sing.

    It has a great clean tone through any amp I have, and no matter what pickup combination I use.

    It growls really nice when overdrive is added to the amp.

    The only restriction is the upper fret access.

    Up to today i didnt know him, less that he was a comedian and hosted the last 5 years of this event (not a big fan of movies or these type of events). Knowing this now, i can see and suspect that this was just the guy following a script, maybe they just want to spice things up, who knows. He is just cashing in. I mean i never have expected anything real or true to come from Hollywood, they are just "entertainment", i certainly know and get what you say that its an industry that has and have abused women, unfortunately this is not the only place/institution/etc where this happens to us women, we have to deal with it on a daily basis.  And kidblast is right about this polarization they are doing, i think they are realizing ppl are fed up (see all the riots in all parts of the world) they know better to keep us divided than united.

    Ricky is the guy that said it and tried to make comedy out of a bad situation. 

    I would like to believe that wasn't scripted.... But you could be right.

    yea.  They are all guilty of the same conduct. But they all like to spew their opinions,  they just create division among people like us.  It's "us" verses "them" and it's gotten so much worse over the last 3 years.

    Really??  In my 56 years of life nothing has changed and has always been there. And I think social media has put it out there with its pants down for all to see.

    Such a bummer that we missed the opportunity to use social media as a portal to bridge our differences as earthlings..... maybe some day😊
