    Chet (again)...MIA??

    OK Hi, so I've been back maybe three weeks - yeah caught the ik twice, like R.L. Burnside said, "It was bad You know". I gotta ask if Chet (again) survived? Myself... my endurance playing-wise is up to 20 minutes and I'm beat. Wiped Out. I'm bullet proof so I'm getting stronger regardless...

    Active Offers on Reverb...24 hour insanity.

    OK High, even though I’m a senior citizen living on a fixed income - I am NOT some Neanderthal, which brings me this: Why in heaven’s name in the age of the cell phone, the internet and the motor car rumble is a 24 hour time limit on an offer required? Seriously just say “Yes” or just say “No.”...

    Things that really infuriate me...

    Today I’m talking about things that really infuriate me. Issue 1 - Local Pickup Only...stuff like this belongs on Craig’s List NOT ON REVERB - that needs to be a law. Stop wasting Our TIME if You live out of our area and You’re CLUELESS when it comes to packing O.K. “Mr. Free Local Pickup.”...

    Marshall “Bluesbreaker” ala’ Tone Master...

    I’m not talking about the Code 100, I mean a serious 1962 Model Marshall Bluesbreaker - a total game changer for the Amplifier I consider “the Icon of all Icons”. The people @ Bletchley Park did break The Enigma Code, doing so was a contributing factor to ending WWII - so why not model a...

    The search for a quality relic’d maple neck.

    OK high, I’ve been searching for quite some time and have found a lot of shoddy quality. My Standard of Excellence being the Stratocaster Maple Neck known as “Brownie” on the cover of the album “Eric Clapton.” Most Necks finished as Relics are amateurish, splotchy if you will. Is anyone out...

    Lucidity - that “AHA Moment.”

    Defined - The ability to think clearly, especially in intervals between periods of confusion or insanity. Regarding Tone - lucidity is an almost Unicorn like commodity. All of this leisure stirred that thing that sits on my shoulders to think about Tone/Tones. Mine, Yours, Eric Johnson’s...

    Luthier for a high quality fret job

    The best Luthier/Tech I ever knew Jim Mouradian left us last year. I am desperate and am looking for a Tech with a few iotas of Jimmy’s talent. I recently acquired (yesterday/Thursday 3/26/2020) a drop dead gorgeous rendition of a ‘53/‘54 Esquire Blackguard. But there’s a problem - it has...

    What Aggravates You?

    It’s gotten to that point where I must vent. Engine Hood Supports - for over a century Cars & Trucks have had a flip up steel rod that never failed. So why do we need these stupid struts that cost up to a hundred dollars to replace? This to me is a money grab and I have decided when I go...

    Will Fender "Tonemaster" the lineup in 2020...?

    If I was on the board (bored) of directors I'd already have the plans on the boat table... This ain't Grampa's Zodiac anymore. This stuff is so good I feel bad for Roadies because it looks like the only Touring they'll be doing will be with Mayflower come 2020. Think about this: Every Amp You...

    A Heads Up To Everyone - WARNING

    I recently decided to go with a 7 Guitar Rack Stand...to save space. It was what I'll call a 25 Dollar Mistake. It came quickly on FedEx and was a breeze to assemble...and disassemble too. If You're considering a multiple stand for Your burgeoning fleet please look at what's securing Your...

    Bad Spelling

    Bad Spelling is driving me nuts especially when it is Americans doing it. On The TDPRI these are the TWO that are the most common "to, too, two & there, their, they're." Actually this is a great example of just how "dumbed down" we've become as a society. 1. I'm going to Chicago. 2. I'm going...

    Newest PRS SE ONE @ GC

    Hey, it's The Holidays and they're "the only game in town" that doesn't require a fistful of dollars to cover parking... Regardless after realizing I wasn't gonna find a Les Paul Junior with a wrap-around I began looking for an alternative - just for my own amusement - and what I discovered was...

    "The Red Baron" as in 80 victories

    This one was way under my own radar screen but I'm making up for it I've watched it four times in the last week. Great piece on Manfred Von Richthofen, must be a couple of years old by now. Great combat in the skies. The Red Baron. Good movie, needed to pass it along. That is all. Almost...

    Powerball is finito? Anyone?

    This is rather interesting....after all of the MegaMillions Mania has "Powerball" slit it's throat with it's rate hike? I say YES. I haven't gone near it since the hike. With the odds of winning about the same as being struck by lightning and being attacked by a Kodiak Bear simultaneously...

    Sayonara My Friends...

    I can never say goodbye - however I've decided to take the initiative before The Sheriff and his not-so-merry men throw yours truly out onto the street. I'm just about packed up and found a place that'll take me and The Cats so all is well. It's a good being a free man again too, my breathing...
