    Selling stuff - headed for law school (Heavy sigh...)

    We see these stories all the time - people going to school, or back to school, and selling stuff. Usually the younger folks, but I have seen older people do the same to help with a child's college costs. Well, now it's my turn. And I am indeed what most people would consider older. I am headed...

    Hey y'all! :wave: Gonna be making a road trip here in a week or two, getting to know the western half of I-40 once more. I LOVES me some good Tex-Mex, but I wonder if such a culinary phenomenon can be found north of Austin? Is there any good Tex-Mex food in the top of Texas, up in the...

    NEVER buying another new Gibson - uh-oh...

    So the madness of King Henry and all the lineup changes in 2008 finally cinched it for me. I swore that my 2007 goldtop Deluxe would be the last NEW Gibson for me. Oh, I've owned a bunch of 'em - both new and used - and I have 8 of them now. But the Epiphoney line being merged with the Gibson...

    Van Halen III really does suck. Is Gary Cherone to blame?

    I was going through some of the obscure and oddball stuff in my music collection. Stumbled across Van Halen III. Hadn't listened to the entire album since, well... the late nineties. I remember buying it just because. Listened through it a couple of times on a road trip, and it was summarily...

    Well... :hmm: After 20 years of drooling over them every time I see them, a Fender Twin may actually be coming home with me. More precisely, it is the one commonly known as the EVIL Twin with power switching between 100 and 25 watts. From Wikipedia: The Twin, commonly referred to, though...

    The Who - and all you young 'uns out there...

    The Who - and all you young 'uns out there... especially if you're really not a fan: What are the first 3 Who songs you think of when someone mentions the band? I mean, the sixties were their big break - cutting edge and all that British Invasion jazz. The seventies were the decade of Big...

    City and Colour - Guitar Center Sessions

    Just caught a band called City and Colour on the tube - Guitar Center Sessions airs on DirecTV channel 101. Fragile Bird struck me as a cool minor-key song. Kind of a lighter folky electric groove. Interview segments in between songs. The singer has a cool voice, if higher than what I...

    Gibson headstock breaks - who's been there/done that?

    I've seen a million threads on Gibson headstock breaks - many threads were panic-induced or inspired. Quite urgent, reeking of heartbreak and pain. UPS/FedEx assholes. Stage accidents/drunken stumbling. Unforeseen stand/hanger failures. Romance gone REALLY bad. Opening a case and finding a...

    Les Paul mods? (On an already beat-up Les Paul)

    Looking for ideas to do some Les Paul mods. Long story short: I sold my 1993 Les Paul Standard (black) to a friend of mine in Texas in 1999. After years of flirting and faking, he finally recently agreed to sell it back. (He never played it - already has a 1981 LP Custom and a bunch of...

    1st Les Paul = How Many Weeks Pay?

    Here's something that pops up quite a bit when I'm talking with older guitar players... (Older than I am, anyway...) :cool: What was your first Les Paul, what year did you buy it, and what did it cost? Here's a second bit that often dominates the conversation though - what was the REAL cost...

    Vinyl collectors - anybody?

    Anybody here a vinyl collector? Do you know somebody who is? I finally cataloged all my LPs and there are nearly 400 of them. Aside from a few assorted oddballs that fell into my lap, I bought them all between the mid-seventies and 1990. There are a few I might keep for nostalgia's...

    MIN-ETUNE - can it be removed cleanly?

    Here's a question I have heard bouncing around all the players I know: The new Gibson MIN-ETUNE system - can it be removed cleanly? Nobody I know or hang out with is seriously in the market for a new Les Paul. Of those who are even remotely interested in buying another Gibson, NONE want...

    Credit inquiries - unwarranted and unsolicited?

    So the missus brought something to my attention today. She just received a "denial of credit" letter from Citibank. This follows several unwarranted and unsolicited credit inquiries she has seen over the last couple of years. Recently, she saw on our credit report one in her name for T-Mobile -...
