  1. I have to say that, though I love my Les and my ES-330, my most versatile guitar is my Strat. I've found Strat style guitars to have the widest range of sounds and, combined with a simple control scheme, is capable of everything that I require of a guitar. I have a Mexican Strat with single coil pickups: bone stock. It's great! Also, I have always loved the 2 and 4 switch positions: that hollow quack just gets me and, really, only a Strat will do that properly.
  2. I first saw Rush on the 2112 tour and last saw them on the Signals tour...one of the best groups that I ever saw: every time I saw them. Neil certainly was one of the world's best drummers (in my opinion) and I will sorely miss his skill and intellect. Rest in peace, Neil, and may God welcome you with open arms.
  3. Nice to see you back, Bence! Cool sounding guitar! What's it sound like clean? Happy New Year!
  4. Very nice! I love the color!
  5. Do you mean as opposed to being vulgar and graceless in order to not be funny and try to push people around? I wish that these halfwits who make their living playing dress up and make believe would just mind their own damned business and stop slagging the country which has allowed them to be millionaires and given them the ability to express their opinions without putting their lives on the line. Okay, I'm done now and am eagerly awaiting reprisal and deletion...
  6. Man #1; I had to shoot my dog... Man #2; Why, was he mad? Man #1; Well, he weren't damn pleased!
  7. The Beatles are the reason that I play music. I heard "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" and that was it for me! They sounded like they were having SO much fun! Anyway, my favorite album is probably "Revolver" with "Sgt. Pepper's" next and then the "White Album". "Revolution No. 9" used to scare the crap out of the 8 or 9 year old me! I also like their early stuff...sounds like a party! Great thread!
  8. Digger, I am SO sorry to hear of your tribulations but, I am glad hear that you and your family are all OK. My prayers are with you, friend. I pray that God has a greater future planned for you than you can imagine.
  9. My first was a Silvertone archtop that played like an egg slicer but, I learned on it well enough that, a few years later, my folks bought me a Hagstrom III for Christmas in my 14th year. Man, I cried like a baby when they brought that out! I still had it until a few years ago whenn I had to pay the damned rent and got screwed selling at my local music shoppe. I sold it for $125...I see 'em on Reverb for $700-1000. It sucks having to sell stuff under pressure! Anyway, that's that story. Merry Christmas (or whatever you celebrate) to you all!
  10. Hey, Jinder! That's a fantastic song, arrangement, performance, and recording! That's real grown folks stuff. Into the Favorites folder it goes! Thanks!
  11. Very cool hearing about all y'all's nicknames! I've been "G Mac the Heart Attack" for the past few years...that is, until I had a heart attack. Now, it's just "G Mac" here on the forum. When I was a youngster they called me "Flash McNasty" for awhile. They called me "Thumper" at a music store where I used to teach...the studios were upstairs from the store and I was always stomping on the floor to help my students keep time. Like most of the rest of you, I've had some monikers that I cannot mention here...
  12. Hey, Rore! Welcome to the forum! There are lots of nice and well informed folks here! I have an Epi Les Paul Standard Plus Top Pro that I dearly love! They go for about $550 +/- without a case. A case is about another $100 +/- for an Epiphone branded case. I haven't really tried all of the numerous LP models but, I can vouch for the quality of mine. I gig with it fairly regularly and have had no major problems that a squirt of DeOxit couldn't fix. I would definitely make sure to play before you buy, if possible. Good Luck on your quest!
  13. Looks like an ES-5 Switchmaster to me. Welcome to the forum!
  14. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...
