    Juniors are fun too!!!

    The angle of the bridge on the last one looks extreme. I wonder if that much angle results in good intonation. Anyway, I love juniors. Rock 'n' roll machines IMO.

    Ever feel like you are "there" with LPs and guitars in general?

    I never feel like I am "there." I must own 20 pretty nice guitars at this point. Clearly I don't "need" another guitar. But I still find myself lusting for this or that guitar that I don't own -- Jeff Beck 54 Les Paul, Jimmy Page telecaster, three or four different Rickenbacker models. What I...

    heads up for anyone looking for Epi Bonamassa LP...

    I have traded away my JB Les Paul for an acoustic guitar. I hardly ever played it and it is in excellent condition. I am out of the loop and I don't know if these things are sought after or what. If anyone is interested it is at Guitar Emporium of Louisville...

    Anyone own a Tele 52 reissue

    My brother owns a recent 52RI and I have a very similar custom shop Nocaster. IMO the 52RI is a great guitar. The most important thing is to know whether or not you want vintage 7.25" fingerboard radius and vintage (smaller) frets as on a 52RI. The alternative is the flatter 9.5" radius and...

    Pranks you've played. No judgement.

    I worked with a particularly obnoxious, arrogant and vain coworker for a few years. Once while he was logged in to his computer but away from his desk, I created a new keyboard shortcut in Microsoft Word so that whenever he typed his full name, it would append ", Narcissist" to it. Sometimes...

    Fender Princeton Reverb 1x10

    Congrats! I love my PRRI. Easy to dial in a good sound with a Les Paul. Not too loud to use at home. Easy to carry. Everybody should have one!

    You might try: (EDIT: Not sure that they sell parts but they seem to specialize in making reissue Les Pauls appear more "authentic.")

    Brian Wilson

    I too am a big fan of the genius of Brian Wilson. Got to see him and his band perform maybe 7 or 8 years ago. Fantastic. There are some great essays on the internet about BW's song composition and music theory, most notably on God Only Knows.

    Gender Identification

    I don't think it would be unlawful discrimination for a patient to refuse a doctor for any reason unless Australia has some unusual laws on that subject.

    Best bang for the buck electric archtop???

    Thanks, gents. The Epiphone and the Loar models look great to me, and I would definitely consider one if I could score it in the $300-500 range. Likewise Godin or Eastman etc. The double pickup Loar looks cool but I've never seen one in the wild. I notice that the 2-pickup model has a...
