  1. Yes, that's old news. But RIP anyway Malcolm, he was the backbone of their sound.
  2. Cardinals Fan here. I stopped watching when the Cardinals got swept by the Nat's. Glad the Nat's won though. I can except the sweep when the sweeping team goes on to bigger and better things.
  3. Almost anything by the Eagles would probably go over well. Take it Easy, Tequila Sunrise, Lyin' Eyes, just to name a few.
  4. Nice amp. Great deal. I love my Peavey Amp too. I'd post a picture but I don't know how to deal with the 0.05MB size limitaiton.
  5. Happy Birthday to Neil Peart. 67 today. Best drummer in the world, IMO.
  6. 66 years young today. My favorite guitarist and greatest inspiration.
  7. OK, Let me clear things up a bit. I got the guitar home last night, plugged it in and it lasted about 5-minutes then went dead. The battery was dead. I opened the battery cover and after removing the shim, got the battery out. Of course, duh, the battery is supposed to be loose when the cover is open. The cover , when closed, applies pressure to the battery and holds it tight against the spring contacts. So the shim is not required. (Good, because it made it really difficult to remove the battery). I don't think a loose battery was ever the cause, and when he tapped on the back of the neck, it wasn't even plugged in yet so the dead battery wasn't the cause of the buzz/rattle. I think the truss rod was actually loose, causing the fret buzz and probably even the rattling. So having him adjust the truss rod fixed those issues. He also sanded the bridge and now I have sound for all strings, although the high E string is still not as powerful, but I'll pass that off to me using light gauge strings. Overall the guitar is back to normal and I learned a little more about the acoustic/electric system. The battery was over three years old, with very minimal use, but still over 3-years old.
  8. Sounds familiar... I also got my "stupidity" fixed with the bridge issue.
  9. Finally got an answer from my Guitar Tech. Turns out the Truss Rod is fine. The battery in the battery compartment was wobbling. He put an 1/8" shim in there to secure the battery. He also sanded down the bridge to get even volume on all of the strings, (that was my fault) I tried to do it myself and screwed it up. $40. repair, now I can breathe easy.
  10. Good for him. I'm tired of seeing copycats. Every time I see someone claim they have a Les Paul, but it's not a Gibson, I laugh. If it's not a Gibson (or Epiphone, because it's owned by Gibson) it's not a Les Paul, period...
  11. Sorry kidblast, but it was a great series. And, I love how both teams kept Game 7 so clean, just pure hockey the way it should be played.
  12. Our hockey team finally won the Stanley Cup after 52 years. Congratulations to the Blues.
  13. Sure Duane, thanks. I rarely go to the Acoustic Forum, but I'll check it out after you move it.
  14. Thanks for the info. Kidblast, it's Santo, not Santos. No biggie, I get that all the time. 😃 I was thinking the same thing about it always being that way... I never tapped on the neck before. As far as environment, it is always in my air conditioned or heated house (not in the basement), and almost always in the case. Dave F. this is exactly what I am hoping for. I'll let you know when I hear back from my local Luthier.
