couldn't have said it better myself.  the biggest virus of modern time is the main stream media.

Can't stand the media either.  Hard to tell if its more lies or is it the truth?

Imgur never lets me in to see the photos I do have in it,  Can't figure out why?  But I got the guitar Sunday night. I went back and forth between Dietze Music and Guitar Center bargaining like buying a car from the best offer. GC matched the price, so I had them remove the Riviera up on the wall and waited for Deb to come home from her friends house as they were sewing together on quilts. I couldn't get the money back from Dietze till I had the credit card numbers from her card. She went with me, and we did just that.  A guy there that was following the guitar wheres bouts told me it was still on backorder and no guarantee I would get it next January so the, "It's on a ship from China was a lie".  Guess they were trying everything to get it for me but their Epiphone guy would not work with them.  Then Deb & I went to GC and the had 2. I bought the brand new one untouched in a box with a 3 yr. warranty at the same price as Dietze.  Unpacked it at home examining it and I can't find nothing wrong. Strings look a bit different than what I use.  I turned it and to hear those P90's scream out.  It took a bit to get it to quite down.  It is loud, like a woman, Think I'll call it, "Lil' Red Riding Hood." Lol I play that song too, Haha. Between the 2 channels on the tube amp I get those Bell like tones I love, The heavy metal type stuff I'm not all that found of and she can really growl some deep tones.   Later I will take some photos of it outside and send one to Rob.  If he will be so kind to post it for me. 

Your guitar...yeah its coming on a slow boat from China.  Hearing that can't be good.

Yeah guitar.

Yeah, I know. They lied twice to me and Deb thought that was bad too. I actually hate liars.  Can't believe they did that. I think they were being honest with me about trying everything they could to get the guitar for me.  I know, Ned, the guy I know had a very sad depressed look on his face that we got our cash back because they couldn't get the guitar for us. Heh? I was very patient and waited actually 4 months from the time we ordered it and then it was to arrive in 10 to 12 days.  That didn't happen.  They were having problems with their Epiphone dude. GC never had one in the beginning of all this and I never asked them to order one. They just happened to do so. So, The 12 string is in its case along with the Gibson GT in its case and I put the Vintage, Modified Jag on the other rack along with an acoustic.  Now I have 5 guitars on the 7 guitar rack  that I play the most. I may sell 3 guitars as this Riviera really screams out. Sounds better than the Casino Coupe. Deb says its the prettiest one with the gold hardware. Anyway,  My Birthday was last April 22, and Finally got the guitar.

The strings on it look different. Kept trying to find out what they come with?  Ok, Found it,  .013-.053's.  No wonder they felt different. I've never played an electric with 13's. So I wonder if that's why it has such great sustain? I have to put .010-.046's on it.  .011's are the limit for me.

Thanks. I sent Rob a photo of it today as Imgur won't let me in to post.  He said he would share the photo.

Yep, That's it.  I took a photo of it with light shinning on it and looks a bit better.  Thanks though.

I’m bothered today by the amount of YouTube ads that are coming up these days. They are becoming more interruptive and frequent. Literally when I play along with a backing track,  Nothing more irritating than being in the middle of some phrase, riff, etc. and an ad for “elect me” comes up - or insurance ad... even though they are short or sometimes be cancelled out after a few seconds, like I said they are interruptive - and even for low traffic or short videos. So that has me to believe that the ads are targeted moreover or something. Who knows... all I know is I’m not paying to get YouTube plus or whatever it’s called to get rid of the ads. Just bothered that YT is going crazy with ads than ever before. Anyone else notice it?

Yes. The first one just used to play for a few secs before you were able to skip it, but now they play an entire ad before that one comes on. Then they add an extra one near the last few secs of the end.

Does anyone name their guitars? I named my Gibson Gold Top "Goldilocks"  7 years ago so I got in the habit of giving them all names. My Red Gretsch is,  "Little Red Riding Hood." The Epiphone Standard is "Lil" Blackie,"  The Casino Coupe is "Coffee," for it's finish and the Modified green Jaguar is,  "Surfin' USA," so I thought I would name this one,  "MaryGold."  Lol

The acoustics don't have names yet!

I'm watching Art technics on U Tube and suddenly here or there,  The video stops with an add and You have to wait 4 or 5 seconds or more and then click, Skip add. Seems worthless and stupid to me as who is going to watch the dumb add anyway?  They are wasting their time and being a pain in the butt.
