  1. Japanese workmanship is no surprise in the manufacturing world; it is arguably the best there is. I deal with micro-machined assemblies and parts, both domestic and from the EU, Indonesia and Japan - Japanese is always perceptibly the highest quality.
  2. Hear, hear! Listen to the voices of reason!
  3. I also find it hard on the eyes - comes across as an amalgamation of about four different guitars...
  4. Went to the bank today to get some cash for our local trash pickup guys' annual year-end gift; they do a great job and give our dog treats and head rubs. No tip for the mail lady, though - she's been delivering our mail to neighbors east and west of us and giving us our neighbors' mail - !
  5. All I got was a bag of bite-size Butterfinger and a dog grooming glove... and I LIKED it!
  6. There are no rules. Try as many different amps as you can - you'll eventually come across something that appeals to you. Now, if you'll be able to AFFORD it is another thing! It's all a learning experience as you go along; just use your ears and brain, be honest to yourself and you'll be fine... ;)
  7. Quite the little tart, she is.
  8. Not me; some of us don't really care about 'vintage' instruments or playing that whole game you describe. All I've ever been interested in are 'regular' guitars - if any of mine might be considered vintage, it's only because I've had them for a long time. You want to catch my interest, show me newer, affordable guitars that play well.
  9. Ah, man - the dude's a legend. Everybody knows something he played on... my favorite recording is the Dobie Gray version of 'Drift Away'- so much tasty stuff in there!
  10. Aw, hell - Hadn't known he was ill... ELP was most certainly a foundation of my youth, and Greg possessed one of the richest voices I've heard to this day. Now playing 'Take a Pebble' in sorrowful remembrance.
  11. How about some Holiday colors? ...or just plain ol' vanilla?
  12. Depends on what your definition of 'is' is.
  13. 'Comments are disabled for this video'
  14. I know it's been said before, but that guitar is pure eye candy.
  15. I've been down this road before, and I'm puttin' on the brakes, pulling a U-turn and getting out of Dodge. As is the case with Henry Kaiser, there are some people who do things with a guitar I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND. No longer will I try to rationalize this or be sympathetic to areas outside my personal comfort zone, it just makes my head hurt. I first heard Mary when she played a Tiny Desk Concert on NPR with a small band she put together (I usually enjoy these, they're an opportunity to hear an artist up close in a bare bones setting) - intrigued (or maybe baffled), I sought out some more of her, er, 'offerings' to see if I was missing something... I was. Whatever she's throwing, I'm missing. YMMV. I DO dig her Guild Artist Award, though.
  16. That applied finish is exceptional; I've never seen the contours on both upper bout horns of a double-cutaway shaded so accurately and evenly...
  17. Hey, I've got one of those! Same model, year and finish - I'll have to dig it out for a pic... Here we go -
  18. I INSIST on having a Poker Chip on, but I make custom ones out of clear plastic with no printing; it's the best of both worlds - it's there, but you can't see it.
