    What, exactly, is Gibson doing differently?

    From what I have read on the net(how true? Who knows?), there will no longer be R anything. There will be 50 and 60 neck Standards, Customs and A CS 50`s in burst or gold, 60`s also. A V and an Explorer as well as Sg and a CS 61 SG/LP. Nothing I`ve seen has P90`s unless it`s a Jr or Special. I...

    I have owned well over 1000 guitars in my life. Lots of teles/strats, hollow, etc. I`m most comfortable with a Les Paul. I don`t like super strats. Strat and teles were made with single coils and should stay that way IMO. Fine for those that enjoy them, but not for me.

    I am a dyed in the wool Les Paul guy. But both Gilmour and Knopfler make me want to play a strat(although I have had dozens and never keep them). If you are heavily into one over the other, who inspires you to play the other?

    Another bar owner rant

    There is a saying that fits her perfectly, and the newest bar owner you are dealing with. You can`t fix STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also, "Those that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it".

    I rarely played for "door". This is what we get. If you sell one beer or 2000 beers, I don`t care. If they cancelled, we got half of our fee. If I canceled(only twice in 20 years of playing out) we did the next show free. It`s bars like the one you are dealing with now that made me quit doing it.

    Unless this is your main cash source, tell them if they cancel they go to the bottom of your list for bookings. I learned a LONG time ago that stressing over bar owners BS isn`t worth my time. if you don`t NEED them, make sure they know it.

    Bradley has a new ball.

    Look for a ball on a rope that you can tie to a tree branch or similar. Leave it hanging just low enough for him to make contact but not actually get it. It will keep him occupied for at least an hour a day and the jumping is a great workout for him.
