  3. Thanks From that site: "At least 4,600 people with the coronavirus have now died in the United States and more than 200,000 people are known to be infected, according to a New York Times database. The death toll has quadrupled over the last week and now exceeds the number of people known to have died from the virus in mainland China, where the pandemic started in December."

  6. Hey all vintage experts, I have this Old Kraftsman Acoustic that I have had most of my life, i am 51 now. I am trying to get a date for when it was made. I do not think it is a gibson made guitar, but it does have a stamp on the inside that looks like this: "L 23 02" and I have heard that the gibsons that were made for old kraftsman, were model #'s starting with L so I thought id try here since no other manufacture of old kraftsman had model # information. Whils old kraftsman was made for spiegle catalog, I was told this was sold through montgomery wards by my mom who is passed on now. Other than the model and the old kraftsman logo on the head only other marking is the back of head says steel reinforced neck in a square at what looks like the top of a music stand. Can anyone help me date this thing? https://gyazo.com/4a34504e1507d51d58b7064670c744f4 https://gyazo.com/2660b948fce48789c0eb3dffd99d547f

  10. I got an elite and I love it. The pickups are far better than the 57's that come in the Izzy Hale. I own those pickups in my LP Studio. The Burstbucker 2 and 3 are amazing. I struggled with the same choice but the only compelling thing about the Hale model is if you are into gold those frets are so attractive, but I do not have any idea how fast they would wear. That guitar is about the look, I strongly feel the elite model is a better made guitar. You might replace the nut with bone or something other than gibsons plastic one. Check it for cracks, (nut). It is a great guitar. I made my own custom pickguard out of maple, only because i wanted a black one.
  11. I am having to relearn to play guitar for not having played with proper technique too long. It is more backwards then forwards and I wasted many years practicing bad habits. Your advise is more crucial for the voice even, as you said you could end up sounding like brain johnson, (in a bad way), if you do manage to get that far. We can replace a broken guitar, we cannot replace our voice. Nobody corrected my bad technique on guitar. I think I should seek a professional to make sure I do not ruin my voice with the same kind of mistake.
  12. That is seriously great advice. I would take lessons from you. I was so humiliated when I was young and tried singing, I gave up entirely. Only for about a year now have I dared try again, in my late 40's. It is too much fun I decided if anyone or anything runs away, so be it. (They will just miss that one time I accidentally do something brilliant), Im just going to enjoy myself while I can. so, the first cover I started on, is Old Time Rock n Roll. It is really nice and simple. Of course I am not bob segar but i realized I never will be, so I sort of kicked up the marshall and made it MY song, a little heavier than the original and the most important thing i want to say is. even my terrible singing has gotten better by finally taking out my balls and trying. so no matter how bad you may be, you CAN get better by learning and practice.
