    Pick My Next Guitar

    I sold my MetroPlex head and the money is burning a hole in my pocket. I need/want another guitar. I want one with P90s. I have two Tele style guitars so I don't want another. I have a Gibson LP and a Mollenhauer LP style guitar so I don't want another LP. The top end of my budget is $2000...

    NGD: American Deluxe Stratocaster... But

    I saw this on my local CL for $425. It's a 2005 American Deluxe Stratocaster in Montego Black with gold pick guard. Has the S-1 switch and N3 pickups. The "but" part is that the previous owner to the previous owner had tried to "relic" the guitar. Grrrr... It has moron damage where he...

    My Other Guitars

    I thought I'd start a thread about my other guitars. It's not really a NGD thread. Some of them are interesting and most play very well. I figured I'd start with the best and most recent acquisition. This is a 1970 Gibson ES-335. I had to drive over three and a half hours each way to get...

    Freedom of speech. I'm not talking about here. There is none and nor should there be. This is a private site to which we are all contributing guests (although some of you are paying :thumb:). What should you be allowed, as an irrevocable right, to say? Where do you draw the line? Feel...

    A Thought About Fender Guitars

    Not trying to start a sh!t session, but I had a thought today. Now, this might have been talked about to death but I don't recall participating in such a discussion. I recently purchased more music from iTunes. I bought Eric Clapton's first solo album. There, on the cover was a picture of...

    You NEED One Of These

    It's a breakfast sandwich maker from Hamilton Beach. I think we paid $26.00 from Amazon with free shipping. Looks like this when you first plug it in: When the green light comes on, it's ready to load. Simply spray with non-stick spray: Put in muffin first: Then cheese...

    Black Mirror

    Have you guys seen this? I've seen the whole series on Netflix. I loved it. The theme is technology in the future and how we use it and how it can help or not... For example, in the future, we are implanted with memory chips and we can rewind and zoom in to examine what happened. As...

    Behold: Swarovski

    I worked a ridiculous amount of overtime recently due to the storms that passed through here. At different times, I had to hike right-of-ways to look and see if the line was still in the air or if there were any obstructions on the lines before I re-energized them. I had a small pair of...

    I Couldn't GIVE It Away...

    Melinda and I recently moved into our new house and went through all of our stuff we had in storage and had moved up here. You know how you collect "stuff"? I hate that. We culled quite a bit of it. She went through all her clothes and picked out a LOT that she just wasn't going to wear...

    10 Inch Speaker Choices

    I have a 4/10 speaker cabinet with no speakers. Any suggestions on what to load it with? I don't play out just mess around at home. I have my own music room (separate building) but I don't want to CRANK it. Basically I just hate having an empty 4/10 cab sitting around. I have a Reverend...

    Well! She Showed Me!

    I fell into a really sweet job here. I'm filling in as a temporary troubleman. When there is a call about some electrical issues, I'm the first responder. I'm LOVING this job. I'm kinda like "House" but for the electric stuff. It's so interesting. Anyway, I've been swamped today. Call...

    Caution To St. Louis MLP Members

    Be careful there (and other places where this could happen). Be aware of your surroundings and know where NOT to go. Drive away. Don't confront. Let insurance handle it. This one was front page on the Daily Mail. Not my first news source but it seems CNN didn't think it important enough...

    I Remember When...

    My dad paid .25 a gallon for gas. The gas station was just outside of Memphis in Mississippi and the station was called "Workingman's Friend". That was about 1972. When I was a kid in Memphis, I went to a Catholic grade school during my fourth grade. I went to St. Anne's Catholic School on...
