Britewires 9-46 are available, but only six L&M stores in Canada stock them. Maybe they're being discontinued. Maybe I'll order some more, way cheaper than Reverb. I'll pay $7.60 at L&M instead of $13.78 (with shipping) through Reverb.
I still have two packs each of Britewires and Hybrid...
Couple of things from my visit to L&M today:
The 2019 Les Paul Junior Tribute DC dropped from $900 to $800 or ~$600 US
There was a cherry 2005 SG '61 there for $1100 ~$830 US. Lots of tiny dents on the back but no scratches or chips. The bridge, tail and pup covers were nicely aged. The finish...
The case I bought for the F-20 is too big, so I took a look around the closets and drawers and found some blue, semi rigid foam, about 1/2" and got two 3" x 4" pieces, and 2" x 8" or so. The skinny pieces I glued together because that pad will go by the end pin, where most of the slack is. The...
You can buy snackies, but they have no pretzels. They used to walk around with free snacks on a tray on Fridays between 4-6, now you buy half priced appetizers instead. I had some mozza sticks last night.
I'm still here. I didn't buy tickets on the LP. It's an ugly wine red Studio. I put a few tickets on a Bose mini PA and a cheap condenser mic.
The Tubemeister 18 head is on for $500 CAD. Don't want one.
Time to go to Long & McQuade. Today is the grand opening of the new local store. Music, food, free small instruments for kids, a bunch of draws for equipment. Maybe I'll win the Les Paul (I don't know which model, just that there's a draw.)
Gibson worked in mysterious ways then. Why would they build a '50 tribute to a guitar that didn't exist until '61? Maybe they didn't think that SG fans were up on the history as much as LP fans might be.
On the other hand, if it has a fat neck along with a thin body and a pair of P-90s, it's...
OK, that was really off the cuff. Now for my Friday update:
Did my 10 hours today and got the hell out of the warehouse as fast as I could. I went home and showered and shaved, and spent a bit of time here. I gathered my stuff (usual pocket things, DSLR and a battery to charge my phone if I...
