    I'm glad you're here.

    There are far too many folks on this board that are too jaded and we need to keep getting new blood who'll contribute to threads instead of pissing on them.

    Haha! Just for you battra! [​IMG]

    By the way, you want to meet up for a beer one night this week? Preferably before the rain comes?

    If you ever make the trip through the Gateway to the West, Hack...please do stop in for a beer with us. Battra may even show you the joys of the Diamond Cabaret, PT's Showclub, or Larry Flynt's Hustler Club. I'm too old to go tom-cattin' about. I would, however, recommend preparation via a CCW license and a sidearm. Rough parts them there...

    On the topic of one Mr Frehley, I have been playing the intro to both God of Thunder and Cold Gin the last 3 days every time I grab my axe thanks to CGM74. My son plays it clean and it sounds awesome. Me, well, that's a different sound altogether.

    It's nice to hear him say, "this Elitist sounds awesome!" though. When he plays it, that is.

    Now I can say that my kit is complete. I bought a Planet Wave guitar strap of KISS ALIVE II
    it looks nice with Ace just above the strap bouton. :D

    This week is no good. Next Thursday is my next conceivable day. If that's amenable, let me talk to the wife/mother in law about picking up Scrumbles from day care.

    (Love the emoticon.)

    I'm not one for the Sauget Ballet. :) It's just way too creepy a vibe for me.

    I will happily take him to some South City bars for karaoke and the nectar of Arsenal St.

    (i.e. Budweiser or Busch)

    I have a serious man crush on these two straps. They are superb in every possible way.

    I think I may order another one soon...just because! :)

    As do I, but I can't justify the coast...no matter effing cool they are....

    I've also decided, I'm going to purposefully NOT do up my guitar to look like Ace's.

    He's Ace.

    I'm Battra.

    He rocks lightning bolts.

    I rock Fleur de lis.

    I've spent enough money on crappy straps over the years. I've had enough.

    I paid $129.00 each for these...got a $20 discount because I ordered two. It's the best money I've ever spent. Non-adjustable - measured to fit, Schaller holes pre-cut, & these things just feel superb over the shoulder. Comfortable is an understatement. Fantastic craftsmanship & customer service.

    Like I said...money well spent. I'll buy all of my straps from them in the future without hesitation.

    honestly...i still haven't quite figured out how long I want my straps.

    Do I want it over, on, or under my beer belly?

    When I was young and thin, I didn't even know where to put it.

    But know I've got this pouch...

    Les Pauls aren't contoured for my fat.

    You can just stop taking those right?

    Got mine today! #151 with no sticker

    Needs a little bit of tweaking, but overall it is a VERY nice guitar! Plugged it into my amp, played "Shock Me", and instantly I knew how awesome this guitar was.
