  1. This! Remember when they were much larger AND they were in those tin or aluminum bowls instead of those crappy microwave ones? I want to put them in an oven and have a crisp crust and not a microwave with a soggy crust that falls apart!
  2. There's some decent stuff on Facebook but some of these groups and people, wow. The politics there has gotten more and more stupid every day. Anyway, welcome back!
  3. Hey Ray, don't suppose you heard about that Jimi guy, have you? I heard he played guitar a little. Anyway, he died too. Rock on, my friend!
  4. We were just talking about this at the grocery the other day. Things keep getting smaller all the time. The Hostess Cupcakes are like mini cupcakes. They're making them smaller so they can charge close to the same so we think prices aren't changing as much as they are. A sales guy at Guitar Center mentioned how the newer Gibson Flying V's are smaller than the old ones. I disagreed and went home to measure mine. I measured an '81, '07 and '18 and they're all the same size, except for the headstock which is shorter on the '81.
  5. I have a 2017 Goldtop Tribute with P90's and that guitar is awesome. It plays just as well as the others and it's a great guitar. I think it's 1 in 1000 but I really like it. I haven't played the 2019. I also play mostly classic rock and blues and that Tribute gets the job done. I personally like the P90's a lot for what I do.
  6. I'm not sure I could ever pay that much for a sporting event or concert. Good for you though! I hope your team wins.
  7. We use powered fronts as well these days but we're a full band and play small to medium sized venues. JBL EON 615 x 2 http://www.jblpro.com/www/products/portable-market/eon600-series/eon615#.XcQt_JVYaUk JBL EON 618s https://www.jblpro.com/www/products/portable-market/eon600-series/eon618s#.XcQuYZVYaUk We have a 24 channel board, 3 snakes to go from drums, left stage, right stage to board. Our monitors (for now) are unpowered and we run our power amps to the 4 monitors. We like our powered speakers but have backups, just in case. However, you can also plug an XLR cable directly into a Mackie Thump 15" and get way louder than your amp for vocals. https://mackie.com/products/thump-powered-loudspeakers We used that for our practice PA for a while until we bought the other equipment. At 1000 watts, it worked just fine. Volume knob is on the powered amp/speaker combo.
  8. Hendrix was great and needed a great band to keep up with him. Bassist and drummer both were fine musicians. Very cool clip and thanks for sharing. I hadn't seen that one before.
  9. It's hard to tell but the one on the right is really a very dark red. But, thank you!
  10. I agree completely. I don't know who started this whole "this guitar brand is better than that one." I'll play any brand/guitar I want and like including Gibson, Ibanez, Fender, Schecter, etc. I really don't care what some internet weenie says about my choice of guitars. I play them and that should be enough. I don't see why people get so bent out of shape over someone's preference of guitar or brands.
  11. My Tribute is one of my favorite guitars and I also have a Classic, Traditional and Standard.
  12. PRS just doesn't do it for me. I tried a number of them a while back. Most of the ones I played, I played without an amp and just didn't like the way they felt in my hands. I did watch the video and I didn't think they sounded the same at all with all the instruments being compared. At least, in my old ears, not any more than any guitar would with similar woods, similar humbuckers and same amp and settings would sound the same. It's also been said and proven that even a variety of 58, 59, 60 Les Pauls have different sounding wood, pickups, tone. I understand the search for an awesome tone but I'm still not sold on PRS.
