    Chewing gum while supposed to be a professional

    I associate chewing gum with daily cigarette smoking; it's just another form of a nervous habit, IMO maybe the dude will acquire TMD and then stop chewing gum

    1960 Telecaster in original "Blue Sparkle" custom colour???

    I like the part where the seller states, "all Brazilian rosewood" in reference to the fingerboard. So at least we know it doesn't have 'regular' non Brazilian on the spaces between frets 9 and 11, or something like that.

    Deacon Frey Leaving the Eagles
