  1. "The bathroom on the right" I heard that too, but knew I was hearing it wrong. Its like that yacht rock song "It' magic I know, never believe it's not so". I knew what they were singing, but I cant help but hear "It's my d! ck, never believe it's not so..."
  2. "Jose can you see by the dawns early light" I thought this for years when I was a kid.
  3. Kind of describes a bad date I once had!!
  4. I'm still surprised on how many kids I come across digging the Beatles. I don't there will ever be a Beatlemania, but I think there would be more of an impact that would think.

    Fret Question

    Maybe you need a fret dress?
  6. My wife said that same thing to me just the other day!!!
  7. I can see how you would be concerned, I guess it could appear as a mar to some folks. Like the rest of the responses, all I see is a nice looking guitar with some nice wood grain. I wouldn't call it a natural imperfection either, that just how the tree grows. Check out mine below, you can see the same type of grain patterns.
  8. I think your fretting (no pun intended) over the wood grain. To me, that's what makes wood like this amazing, how nature spins these cool shapes and patterns. The 50s Standard comes with a AA maple top which is not as fancy as the reissues and such. I just purchased the same guitar and I love it and I'm sure you will too.
  9. I prefer brunettes, but that is a nice amp. Congrats!!
  10. Here's a sunburst that sold recently. https://www.gbase.com/gear/gibson-melody-maker-59-reissue-2007-sunburst As merciul-evans states, it sounds like you already have a handle on what you have. As far as the strings, I don't think that makes that much of a difference to put any energy into finding out what kind they are IMHO.
  11. That is the wood grain, I find it to look pretty nice myself. Congrats on the new guitar, that is a very nice top.
  12. It would still be MUCH better than what's being offered as "fresh" today.
  13. Oh stop! I'll jump on your Lars soap box anytime you care to bring it up. That guy needs to count his blessings... My thoughts have been a musician should be humble... Hell, I'm grateful that anybody would listen to me play not alone pay for it. This slob takes it a step further... "oh I'm a great drummer, hear me play, pay me... pay me now!! " f**k the art of music it's about the money... Barf!
  14. Lars Ulrich is a ******bag, I know it, you know it, and he knows it. The only thing he doesn't agree with me and you on is that he's a terrible drummer! Man what an ego that guy has!! Oh Chris, that's Angus playing the 335. Kind looks like Lars in that pic...
  15. Those are some nice straps. I would like to get some more, but I have so many right now...
  16. I used Schaller S Locks on my strap for the Les Paul, fit like a charm. Which straps did you get?
  17. When I was a young man in the Air Force, I was considered a "one hit wonder." I would hit it once, and leave them wondering.
