    Who's Who in Birds

    This thing showed up in my front yard yesterday. Not timid at all. Wondering if it might be someone's pet. Never seen one of these in my life. Closest I can tell is that it is a Rock Partridge, or something close to it.

    79 Princeton Reverb Cabinet Question

    A while back I bought a 79 Princeton Reverb from a local seller. What a great amp. I've been gigging mostly with a 64 DR on weekends. I thought this Princeton would be great to take to band rehearsals. Lately I have been playing in two bands with rehearsals two nights a week. My thought was...

    My MLP Rig

    This is the rig I used at a gig last Friday night. If I had never joined MLP, this rig would probably be an old 80s Peavey Chorus 400 amp and an old 80s Japanese Strat. Instead, this rig is chock full of nothing but MLP goodness. First off is the Phaez JTM 18 head. I bought this used from an...

    Paul Schaefer Interview with Buddy Guy

    Driving home from work yesterday, I just happened to catch a show on SiriusXM Bluesville channel. Paul Schaefer was sitting down with Buddy Guy and asking him everything. What a fantastic interview. Paul would ask him a question about a song and they would start playing it, Buddy on guitar...

    Florence Effects on MLP

    My wife and I had to cut our vacation short because of Florence. Got to spend two days at the beach in South Carolina then had to drive back home to Ohio. We made it safe and sound but really feel for all the folks that live in that area. Saw a note from James at Rewind that they are currently...

    NGVD Elineke - ExNihilo

    Finally came up with some video of one of Scott's amazing guitars in action. Back when I took ownership of this wonderful work of art, I was going to try and make a video demo. This video company can probably do much better than I can. Just want to show off this wonderful guitar. My main...

    79 Princeton Reverb Question

    Just picked up a SF PR last night and took it to band practice. Amazing! I've been gigging for several years with a 64 DR and I must say I am amazed at the sound of this little thing. The previous owner replaced the speaker with a Patriot Cannabis Rex. Just wanted it to take to rehearsals...

    Tube Questions About 64 BFDR

    I have an old DR in great shape that I use just about every weekend for gigging. I don't baby it at all. It has a well-padded soft cover and just tote it in the back of my pickup, face down on a thick foam dog bed, to gigs and back. Only mod I have made was to replace the original Jenson...

    That'll Be The Day ending

    Can anyone help out an old man with a feeble mind? I am trying to learn the closing harmony guitar licks to Linda Rondstat's version of That'll Be The Day. Our band's other guitar player is doing the upper harmony and I am doing the lower harmony. I've always had a hell of a time picking out...

    Face up or down? Transporting your tube amp

    I have an old 64 Deluxe Reverb that I have been gigging with, for some years now. I don't have a road case but I do have a nice thick padded Studio Slips cover for it. Most weekend gigs are within 50 miles of home. I normally transport all my gear in a pickup truck bed, with a camper shell. I...

    Goldtop Pin Striping Question

    I have a 99 Goldtop R7. Always thought it would be cool to have some pinstriping done just to give it a unique look. There is a local detail artist and pinstriper that is pretty well known in this area. Was thinking of having him put something different on my goldtop. Wanted it to look unique...

    Silvertone in Action

    Was watching Maren Morris on Fallon the other night and happen to notice the guitar player with an old Silvertone 1446 (just like my old 65). Only other one I have seen lately is played by Andrew Trube. They came stock from Sears with Bigsby and Gibson mini-buckers. Silvertone1446 by...

    Gig Etiquette, What would you do?

    Played a gig last night. One of those outdoor music in the park deals around the greater Cincinnati area. A local sound company provided PA and sound. There was also a television crew filming live for a local access station. Was a great night. Great weather. Great audience. Great sound. The...

    Testing 9 volts

    Is it just me, or does anyone else test 9 volt batteries with the tip of their tongue?

    Nostalgic View

    I grew up during the 60s. I spent endless evenings and hours in my bedroom tearing my fingertips to shreds on an old Kingston acoustic guitar, learning songs like "Love Her Madly", "Lookin' Out My Back Door", "Heard It Through The Grapevine" etc. Whatever came in the latest "Weekender" section...

    How To Create a New Photo Album?

    Since the new software upgrade, I have managed to find and view my existing MLP photo albums. I can't for the life of me figure out how to create a new one. Is that possible anymore? Thanks.

    Where in the world is Roman Rist?

    Anyone know if Roman's still alive? In January of 2012 he was commissioned to build a Tele. I sent him a check. He has since fallen off the face of the earth. I just noticed today his doman www.ristguitars.com is for sale. According to his profile, he hasn't been on MLP for over two years.
