  1. I have axes in all the above categories (survey) and "other" as well: 4-7 hang from their neck on the wall- 4 currently 2-5 are standing next to me at my desk, lightly leaning into "corners" by me or up against the amp next to me- 5 currently 8-14 are in multi-axe folding stands- 8 currently 3 are on single-stands because they are oddly shaped and almost refuse to stand straight- a Warlock, A Mockingbird, & an Iceman Up to 27 are standing straight and tall, in 3 uniquely slotted multi-axe (9x@) standing floor-holders that I invented- 17 currently 2-5 are leaning lightly, resting against the Marshalls, the Peavey and the Crate- 5 currently 14 are in 7 model-specific custom-crafted Dual-axe Hard-cases that I make - standing along the wall 17 are in Single Hard-cases I didn't make - standing along the wall 3 are in nicely padded Gig-bags - standing along the wall These locations are all current (7/1/'17) locations and are prone to change with little to no notice. I have been overheard at gatherings while in conversations, and criticized for speaking fondly of "My Harem", or about my Girls. Yep, and there's a time or two I have even been a bit misunderstood as to the actual subject by a nosey eaves-dropper, even to the point of being taken for "a mouthy chauvenist" once. That mistake was by a nosey, over-critical & not-so nice-about-it, "ex" of an old friend, who thought I was talking smack about all my "Ex-es" when I was just reeling tales of my "Axes". As it came to pass, the joke was on her & that's what she gets for being a bad listener, & so quick to try and wanna go put shame on a good-guy, anyhow! Besides, how would a fella maintain that kind of popularity & have that many females in the mix at the same time, and still have any sanity left at the end of the day? And when could he ever find any time to play his Axes? I say, Thank goodness my "Axes", my "Girls" & "My Harem" are one-in-the-same! And my Woman agrees! LOL!!!
  2. OK, I am not certain that this is where this really goes, if not I apologize, but I could not post in the lounge yet, so what the hey, here goes. I saw a posting about Moore's gear being sold and followed some links and checked it all out. Interesting stuff for many reasons. I noticed the convo had turned toward the somewhat low numbers being generated by the items and especially a few instruments. So I start looking closely at the math on these things and found myself struck by the fact that not only are there some REALLY nice pieces here, some VERY rare (1 of 1 is rare, right?) but that there are lop-sided numbers in the mix, too. The point I am getting at, and the reason for my post here, is a couple of Melody Makers were so backward ( at least to me) in selling price, that it kinda confused me. Here's why: a 1965 Melody Maker Double-cut sold for $1784.00 U.S. meanwhile.... a 2004 Melody Maker Single-cut sold for $2433.00 U.S. Can anyone enlighten me as to why there might be such disparity between these instruments' selling price? Both were Moore's axes. With or without the celebrity provenance that is attached, it just seems a bit skewed to me. And yeah, I know it is an auction, and things sometimes do that at an auction, but all things being equal otherwise, sorta, should the "teen-aged" guitar REALLY have sold for $650.00 more than the 52 year-old original, classic? Are they even able to be looked at in the same light, or am I missing something profound, information-wise about one or both of these instruments? I would have thought the '65 to be, if not in another "class", so to speak, then at least in a different price-range than the "newbie". So, if the '04 wasn't a "auction-fever" buy, and if the '65 wasn't a "helluva steal", then what could be the reason for this disparity in price? Anyone wanna weigh in on this and proffer some reason(s) this should be assessed differently?
  3. Hello to one and all! Gotta love a place like this!! Player gone collector, here, and it would appear I find myself in pretty amazing company, I must say. Looking forward to sharing, and having learned so much already from posts on here over the last 3 days, I anticipate a whole lot more of that also. Will add/post some pics of my Harem after a bit of research of policies. Already saw examples of the "No pix = It didn't happen"-rule here and there, & I get it, 'cause I'm from 'VEGAS, baby!!. Looking forward, also, to some like-minded Computeraderie, & I've no doubt I will find some of that here. Plent of time for "chatty" another time, so .........TTYL! Peace
