    A lot of guys in our library studying for it lately. I ask all of them - "is the bar prep as bad as I'm fearing it will be?" Answer is always "no - much much worse!"

    Good luck brother - sounds like you're on track. One more week, then you can relax! :naughty:

    Consider yourself wished well (you too, Dice, as events warrant).

    What the USA needs is as many good and honest lawyers as it can get. I think you probably understand how I define "honest", so I say the same thing about doctors.

    I'm guessing this is a way to change online poll results.

    Someone's using this? Go to hell punks. Eat me.



    Anytime.

    hmmmmm, actually I think this bolsters his claim to not being a collector. He obviously has the serial # to his stolen guitar, and has used the serial # to search for the guitar since it was stolen. Don't know why he said 58 in answer to the interviewer, guess he's a player, not a collector. :)

    It really doesn't look good for Montrose in his quest to get his guitar back. Just a hunch.

    There's several posts on this thread about "weedwacker" and vote results.

    Hopefully I'm wrong about my assumption. (I always get bit when I start assuming...)

    I started the weed-whacker thing based on Fletch's reference to loaning lawnmowers. I've got a fancy, expensive Honda lawn trimmer my neighbors are always wanting to borrow. Lawnmowers and cheap-ass trimmers are a dime a dozen. My Honda's something special, and I won't let anyone borrow it, especially if they voted for Moore! :laugh2:

    That's all Fletch and I are referring to. Can't speak for anyone else.

    I doubt it he also said this.



    So you were into vintage, great-sounding guitars by that time.

    Yeah, I'd gotten into them around '73 or '74; I'd seen Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Duane Allman all playing Sunbursts. I could never afford them for the longest time, and I finally bought one once I was a full-time musician. I remember calling my wife from New York, telling her that I couldn't believe I was getting paid to play music! (laughs) That was when I first started playing for Edgar. Another rare instrument I had was a transitional reverse Firebird with a straight headstock; I was so upset that the Les Paul had been stolen that the next night onstage at Philadelphia I trashed the Firebird; it was a "youthful fit of anger", I guess.

    Once you could afford good guitars, used or vintage, did you have a preference for Gibsons?

    I sure did. I had two or three Les Paul Juniors, a Les Paul TV Special, and three Sunbursts. Robert Johnson of Memphis got me my '58 Flying V.

    I have read countless quote's over the years from ''Pro MUSICIAN'S" as to how they admire Gary's SOULFUL playing & his "Awesome TONE" and how he is a humble gentleman.And furthermore until one of you 'legal eagles''has actually seen an 'Original' Bill Of Sale with the Serial# and or the Police Report W/Serial # then there really should be no more '' onesidedness about this Civilsuit.The majority on here act like some ''Holier Than Thou'' Judge and Jury who have already tried this case in their minds and Mr.Moore is the loser.Give it a rest!! Oh and BTW if any of you ''Professional" guitar players on here who slag Gary's musicianship... 'Puulllease'... post some of Your "World Admired" playing with a tone to die for on here so the we can bask in it's awesomeness!::applause::laugh2:

    The legal theory behind this whole thing doesn't revolve around whether or not those discussing it have seen the bill of sale. We obviously assume that there is sufficient evidence to prove that the guitar was stolen from Montrose and that this is the same guitar. That is a given - and seems to be undisputed. There are some very fundamental legal issues in this case which are not subject to the emotionally charged popularity contest which you (apparently) and others are making it out to be.

    the voice of reason as always Dice.

    to answer the question in umm question, if something is stolen it remains stolen until returned to the stolen-ee. End of.

    As opposed to someone screaming and tossing out personal insults? That kind of common sense?
