I've been on the look out for the right 355 for years now. I honestly don't expect to buy it online, but you never know what will pop up. The closest I came to pulling the trigger was on a 74 with a bigsby at Gruhns, it didn't sound like anything I've heard before. It did however have a really awkward neck shape and I couldn't see myself wanting to pick it up. If my budget allowed for an early 60's this wouldn't be such a long journey.

I guess I'm reporting this one too. He should really just call it a Gibson Copy.
  4. I just feel bad reporting it if my suspicions aren't confirmed. http://www.ebay.com/itm/GIBSON-ES-355-GUITAR-UNPLAYED-RED-GOLD-HARDWARE-HARD-SHELL-CASE-/152012171652?hash=item2364a1a984:g:HwoAAOSwh-1W4yEU
  5. There is a guitar in almost every pit.
  6. The NFL changed OT rules for this season. It used to be true sudden death, now it's only true sudden death if the first team with the ball scores a touchdown on offense or defense. If you score a touchdown on special teams you have to allow the other team a chance to have the ball, if you score with anything other than a TD the opposing team has a chance at the ball. But once both teams have had a chance for the ball then it turns to true sudden death again. I wish you could get a shot at the ball even if the other team scores a touchdown first. But thats just me being butt hurt about loosing in OT this past week.
  7. I have an aunt who is a caterer. So our whole family always goes to her house and she just makes the most awesome food, but she mixes it up every year, so I'm not sure exactly what we'll have. I do know however, that I will have miller lite and football, football is as necessary to Thanksgiving with the family as turkey.
  8. 2012 year sucks, we should all forget it and go straight to 2013... See avatar. But for real, losses this year are getting hard to swallow. I'm a Panthers fan, and have been for as long as I can remember. Carolina will always be in my heart, but this year they are causing a lot of heart ache.
  9. There is an anti-suicide charity in Austin that gives guitars to kids, it's called Pick With Austin. I know the guy who runs it, he's a really sweet guy who loves guitar and lost his son a year or two ago to suicide. He's always looking for guitars to give kids. You might want to contact him. http://www.PickWithAustin.com/ But I also like the idea of taking a picture of it every day.
  10. Dean guitars used to have some guitars made in the Czech Republic. They were really good guitars, If I can ever find a perfect shape natural Czech caddy I'll buy it in a hart beat.
  11. I'm a huge SG fan. I've used my standard in every possible situation and it just fits me perfect. I love the thin body, the sound, the feel, to me the SG is the perfect electric guitar and it never leaves me wanting. I've had a few LP's over the last 10 years or so but they always ended up going out of rotation for me. The body just feels awkward to me while standing. BTW the neck dive issue with the SG is very easily solved with a leather strap that grips your shirt to prevent the slide. But I just love the SG, when I was younger the SG was the first guitar that made me go WOW, when I was touring full time a few years ago I started touring with two SG and two LP's, when I stopped touring I had 10 SG's and 0 LP's. I've been blessed to play quite a few guitars in my short playing life and I also feel really blessed to have found a particular guitar (my main SG named Cadee) that just fits me perfect and fulfills every want I have in a guitar.
  12. It depends on what you want to do and how you have your amp set. If you have a dirty amp all a boost does in front of the amp is increase gain, to increase volume you need your boost in the loop. If your amp is set cleaner and you want a little 'more' out of your OD then put it in front of the OD to push it harder, if you just want some more volume with your OD then put your boost behind the OD.
  13. Yes I would do this to my kids. I see nothing wrong with it.
  14. I'm a huge Mesa fan and I've spent quite a bit of time with the lone star, I like it. But I've been gassing something fierce for a twin. I want to mix it with my Stiletto so bad.
  15. Thanks for the post, I'm currently 3 weeks into a beard growing expedition. My goatee and mustache are starting to look good but the hair on the sides of my face is quite pitiful. My dad can't grow hair on the sides of his face either so I guess thats just the way the world turns, but after reading this I'll give it another month or two before I decide to keep it or not.
