  1. You have to do it if its for safety. Myself, I seldom use a strap seated.
  2. Well it sounds like a good idea. The only thing about this that bugged me was when I don't notice the date. -'feeling duped' as Sgt put it.
  3. Its also very interesting that It sounds better in the LP. Good result! Its good to experiment. Yes, it taught me that the design/build is more important to the sound than I had expected. We see humbuckers in Fender builds, and they still sound Fender-like.
  4. I changed out humbuckers on this Squier Esprit for Fender spec single coils I had made by the Creamery (they are in a humbucker housings). I was trying to see how close I could get to a Fender sound in this Gibson style build. It didnt get me very close at all, but they do sound good, and better than the Duncan designed originals. before and after

    https://www.guitarinsite.nl/serienummers-gibson_eng.php Results for 13098719 This guitar was made on 5 November 2018 in Nashville https://serial-number-decoder.co.uk/gibson/gibson.htm
  6. Well, thanks for letting us know. I saw it. But he had been holding it together pretty well up until then.
  7. I hope you are still using an analog hearing aid. https://audiorecovery.com/blog/difference-between-analog-and-digital-hearing-aids/#:~:text=Analog hearing aids work in,aids amplify all sound equally.
  8. Fair enough, but one to cite one example: There's one begun by someone asking the whereabouts of model-specific hardware. That question was answered recently with a link to what he wanted. Except to OP was posted 9 years ago, and his last post of this forum was 5 years ago.

    You can reveal the serial number here. Plenty of people have. What about the link I put up? It looks pretty much like yours to me. At the bottom of this page are further links including serial no. FAQs. There are also Sites that you can enter your serial number & they return what it should be.
  10. I dont use them myself, but loopers are useful. There are also backing tracks for all sort of musicians. Our bass player Paul uses them all the time. https://www.facebook.com/100004776005125/videos/1495268173975702/

    You seem to have done your homework on this. So where did the specs you quote come from? The store you bought it from? The 2018 Gibson specs will be listed, so I expect you have looked at them all for comparison. Therefore any variation here would be down to the previous owner customising the guitar. Have you checked back with the seller about this?
  13. Filbert's UV kit makes the most sense, but sometimes flies just seem to pick on you. Then it becomes, y'know... personal.
  14. I'm playing mostly at home now too. Not just because of Covid, our 20 year old band is fizzling out, with just a couple of gigs in prospect at any one time. It does feel weird, but its becoming the norm. I frequently play in the evening with the TV on. Just to keep limber mostly. For years it was unplugged, but now I like to hear what I'm playing too. Like you I will keep one setting going for ages.
  15. There are a large number of old thread resurrections across the site always from newbies. I had thought this was one fellow, creating sock puppets & messing about. But now I see another where someone has replied to a 9 year old thread but clearly done some research into it, so I really don't know. Got to remember to check those dates! Maybe the mods have some insight?

I'm re-posting this as a new thread so set your deja vu alarms to stand-by.
  17. Yep. Both a ranged, and a close quarters weapon is optimal. 🙂
  18. My guitars suit me well, but they aren't as pretty as these. Especially Fester's acoustic, Sarge's BBKing...
  19. Thats terrific! I wish we could get those. I use the executioner
  20. Well I have the THR30 latest update, but the G10T relay has to be attached for that update to work. Meanwhile I've just done a sample vid (camera mic only sadly)
  21. I dont have any reading matter I can suggest Brad. I have however been through this with my mother, and was here carer for some years before she needed specialised care. I cannot and will not sugar coat anything for you. This is a dreadful illness and its very hard to deal with. I had little in the way of family help. I suggest discussing this with your brother and any other family. Its better to be coordinated with your approach to this. Its better for your mother and its much better for the rest of you too. There are drugs which can slow down the onset of this. If she has no historic/pre-existing digestive disorders, she should be ok to use them. Even if Power of Attorney is not needed yet, prepare the way. It can take time. Her doctor (and maybe legal adviser) should be consulted about when it the time comes. I'll return with further suggestions later. Meanwhile, gather your thoughts and discuss options. Good luck.
