    G&L's Placentia, the worst name for a product line ever?

    Looking for a worse name that's actually been given to a line of products. I'm drawing a blank, but I'm sure they're out there. Anyone? I do get that it's the name of a city, but c'mon. If you were building your guitars in Mudd Butt, South Dakota you don't need to name them Mudd Butt...

    Team Johnny Depp

    I had this trial on in the background while working from home today, and as he started describing her behavior, it struck such a nerve with me.

    Piano Leg Repair Help

    I have an old Sohmer upright that I acquired a few years ago. It's a good piano, this era of Sohmer we're making the best uprights, supposedly, and this one has a nice sound to it. However, while it was being moved to do some cleaning today, the leg broke off. I had noticed a hairline crack...
