  1. Yes, it does, and I like it. Gives that sustained, controlled feedback. Very cool. The standard setting is nice too. Love using it with my Delay Pedal.
  2. Thank You Tman. Hope your housing situation is getting better.
  3. I got my EBow as a birthday gift from my daughter. Used it for the first time last night. Took some getting used to, but after a while I started getting the hang of it. Now I just need to find some songs that use it. Otherwise I'll just keep practicing to get better at the methods & techniques. Switching strings quickly, doing a lead run, is going to take a lot of practice.
  4. In the end, its ultimately your decision. I have a Gibson Les Paul Classic Antique, and the only guitar I would want right now is a Fender Strat. MIM or USA is still undecided. So if it were me, I'd go with the Telecaster (that would be the closest to the Strat.). Congrats on your upcoming retirement.
  5. Thanks for all of the comments. I'll let you know if I get one, and if I do, how I like it.
  6. Anyone have, or ever used an ebow? What do you think about it? I'm thinking about getting one.
  7. Yes, that's old news. But RIP anyway Malcolm, he was the backbone of their sound.
  8. 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.
  9. Almost anything by the Eagles would probably go over well. Take it Easy, Tequila Sunrise, Lyin' Eyes, just to name a few.
  10. 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.
  11. Happy Birthday to Neil Peart. 67 today. Best drummer in the world, IMO.
  12. 66 years young today. My favorite guitarist and greatest inspiration.
  13. 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.
  14. Sounds familiar... I also got my "stupidity" fixed with the bridge issue.
