    Did Historic hardware change in 2018?

    One thing I know that changed between my '14 and '19 models is the bridge, The ends are very round on the '14 and VERY egg shaped on the '19. Looking at a real ABR, those look about in the middle of the two I have. Cosmetic change, not sure if materials, etc. were changed. To my eye, all...

    The Stock Market Thread (no politics)

    Never forget the dividends. If you get nice checks from those, and you're not looking to sell stock, then the market can do what it will, your income is all set. A cow for her milk, A hen for her eggs, And a stock, by heck, For her dividends. An orchard for fruit, Bees for their honey, And...

    The Stock Market Thread (no politics)

    IMO, as long as you're going long, it's always a good tie to buy. I have a hard time buying when the market is peaked out, but I usually regret not buying when it just goes up after that. IMO again, if you're long, trying to time the market is for the birds. It's bit me more than helped so I...

    The most violent birthday ever, dash cam of shooting on post 40

    Police (etc) should have bulletproof windshields in their cars for this exact thing. Although it might prevent them from shooting out through it. Cops are my friends, we support you guys! Thank you!

    SNL Super Spreader event.

    I always like the Samurai Delicatessen. Total shit since the early 90's I'd say. Too bad it blows, it's actually live on the west coast now and on before my bedtime.

    Nature is Gnarly

    Savage. It's amazing it hadn't lost consciousness from blood loss. Those guys should have left the scene and let nature taken it's course. :( Prolonging the inevitable. What are they gonna do, take it to the vet?

    2019 Reissues vs The Real Deal

    I have a '14 R8 and a '19 R9, and I really prefer the later PUPs in the '19. It's got a great sound and feel.

    Todd Nance.......drummer for widespread panic RIP

    I love WSP. So sad to see Todd die. I really can't get on with them these days. I'll go to shows when they come around, but whe I listen to WSP shows, it's always the ones with Mikey. They really lost their sound when he died, and it changed again when Todd left. I LOVE Jimmy Herring and I...
