    A Vox State of Mind!

    This 1965 Cambridge followed me home for a test-run. I haven't made up my mind about buying it yet, but it sure looks cool next to my early 1966 Berkeley. Both are the all-tube versions.

    Anyone Here Ever Have To Deal With A Pinched Nerve?

    I haven't been to my doc yet, (but will soon) but pretty sure I have a pinched nerve. I have pain that is most intense in my neck and shoulder, that radiates to my bicep and also to my hand, leaving my fingers numb and tingly and weak. Anyone who's had this issue? What did you do about it? This...

    Restoring My 1880 Weber Grand Piano, and The Sweet Smell Of Brazilian Rosewood.

    Back in December I scored this beautiful 1880 Weber grand piano. Paid a whopping $250.00 dollars for it. She's 6' 3" long, with a Roccoco style cabinet in Brazilian Rosewood. I did some modification to the action, (which needs a complete re-build) to bring it into something that even resembles...

    In recent communication with our own (Kristian) Barker, (the man, the myth, the legend) he disclosed that "Goldie" might be coming up for sale.

    New vintage piano day! My wife's cousin is working on an old house, and wanted to know if I wanted to buy the piano that was in the place. He told me I could get it for $250.00.

    Could We Have A "Tour Your Favorite Dealer " Thead?

    Maybe even make it a "Sticky"! Most of you know I'm partial to the HOG. They are my local dealer, and have done me right for 38 years that I've shopped there. But I'd love to visit some of the other dealers who help this Forum great and aren't local to me. I'm wondering if we could have a thread...

    PSA: Beautiful "Nicky"

    I hadn't been over to the HOG in a while, so I stopped over there today, and asked Curt if he had a "Nicky" I could check out. He didn't let me down, and neither did Gibson. These are gorgeous!! If Gibson made a more beautiful Les Paul, I have yet to see it. But of course, no lefties.
