    Gibson, the SG Deserves Better!!

    I was sad to see Henry virtually slap his loyal customers (fans) in the face by actually smashing an instrument (the SG) they buy, use and appreciate. But I think the Gibson marketing department has gone too far this time...

    New Capacitor Shoot Out.

    Shoot Out 2! I got a lot of caps in from Jonesy and decided to put them to the test. Here are the candidates. I thank Geo and Jonesy for great advice on testing gear. But I give a special thanks to Raz59 who went way above the call of duty trying to help me on my "magic box"...

    Cruise Crew Flew with Few and Loose Too

    You did not want to be on this boat. And the woman who hits the pole, sorry! But, the fat guy in the striped shirt who keeps going back and forth across the screen, that's pretty funny, from a watching a video standpoint. It gets progressively worse/better as the footage continues...

    1966 Fender Pro Reverb

    The real deal. Beautiful sounding amp. But, I ended up with a similar vintage Vibrolux from a friend so I'm +1 more vintage Fender amp than I need. Got it from Fat Sound, a great local shop. It's in the condition I got it in from them, so I'll list what they said about it when I bought it...

    1973 Les Paul Custom Ebony! (pic heavy)

    My 70's Les Paul Ebony for sale. Easy come and perhaps easy go! I believe it is a 73 from reading the pots (CTS 1973 pots), but I could be wrong a year or so. Serial number is 189050. It has been refretted. It has wear on it, and the various small bruises etc. that come from use. Hardware...

    Cool Old Stuff

    In addition to cool new stuff, guys like cool old stuff. Over at the MLP meet, I got to see a lot of cool old stuff, not just out and about, but most enjoyably at Cookie's and Phil's houses. Their homes are historical treasures, and so is a lot of the stuff in them (including the owners...

    New Norlin SG Day!

    After my gear sell off, I went Norlin hunting and of course got the V along with Cookie's fantastic white custom. One gap was an SG and that was solved yesterday. I just got it from the original owner, very nice guy, who had transitioned to piano and didn't play it anymore. Original...

    V, for very awesome

    I got to check out a Norlin V in action in the talented hands of Cookie-Boy. No doubt it seemed cooler than it even was, just through his deft handling of it. But after that experience, I thought it would be a shame to go through life and not give one a go. After an exhaustive search, I...
