    Afternoon paper route.....:) . 2.5 cents daily, 3 cents on Sat per paper delivered. I had about 50 customers. It took some time at that rate in crappy Buffalo weather, but I bought my own. MIJ and not in a good way back then. I also had to buy my own bike, also MIJ. Schwin Stingray wannabe. It was a gold flake Skyway. My dad was really mad when I did that. He didn't want me to have a bike with handle bar brakes.

    I'm not big on plywood myself, but the different plywood choices available today can sound better than what was available when I had plywood guitars.

    When I used that skillet in the center of my plywood Strat for my Strat-O-Rez guitar, the result was just Resonator tone without any noticeable wood tone from the body. The Maple neck was a big plus for it and probably was responsable for most of the wood tone on that guitar.

    I finally clicked on this. Simply horrid.
    But you're right, that guitar would work.

    LOL, Frank Zappa called them “better than the Beatles”. Oh that Frank.

    I read that too. I think perhaps Frank mistook incompetent discordance for intentional and artistic discordance. Or all their other songs are way better - I quit after a sample size of one. Or Frank was just trying to needle the Beatles a little.
    I hate to be unfair. I will go back and listen to some more Shaggs.

    Later: I did. I'll never get those minutes back.

    To be fair Rex, you have been given powerful knowledge here. You now know what to put on the sound system should you have a party and certain guests wont leave at the end of the evening. This knowledge also works if you want people out of your hooch at Balad or for people who abuse their ride privileges. All in all, a very useful tool if you ask me.

    Indeed. I hope the Taliban don't learn of the Shaggs. Perhaps this thread shoud be shut down...Mods??? (kidding)
    When I did my SERE (Survival, Escape, Resistance, and Evasion) training back when the earth was still cooling, they blasted the Sex Pistols 24/7 and loud while we were in solitary. Little did the authors of this torture syllabus realize some of us were digging it. The Shaggs would not present modern day captors with this potentiality.

    I'm pretty sure the greatest trick Frank played was convincing the world he didn't take drugs

    Ha, I get it now. I made a pretty good joke without even meaning to. I was not referencing the replacement of global cooling hysteria, with global warming hysteria. I was using a (I thought) somewhat common reference to the early stages of the formation of the earth, back during the cooling period that preceded the emergence of life. In my business, when someone talks about something that happened long ago, they sometimes say "when the earth was cooling."
    But I like the way you read it better. That's funny.

    Why not leave the fretboard flat (ala flamenco guitars)? It'd still play OK.

    Somehow, “heat and pressure formed laminations” sounds so much more elegante. :cool:
