    Tips on relicing?

    Use the least amount of nitro you can. I did a Strat in LPB and designed it to age fast. I didn't leave the wood completely smooth before applying the was smooth to the touch, but I didn't use any grain filler or primer. I only used about 2/3's of a nitro can to finish it. After...

    Lou Reed, the Music Snob

    Not a big Zappa fan...but can't play??? Sure Lou... FYI, Reed begged the RnR HOF to be the one who inducted Zappa. Which is odd considering he never said anything nice about him when he was alive. While I love a lot of Lou Reed's stuff, when he offers his critiques of others...remember he...

    Meatloaf went all the way last night, paradise, no dashboard light...

    An old friend of mine was befriended by Meatloaf when he was shooting the Steve Martin movie "Leap of Faith" back in the early 90's. My friend had a bit role in the film and was on set with him the entire shoot. They'd go off for a drive afterwards and he was playing him demos or rough mixes of...

    $150 a lot of money to ship a used Fender '68 Princeton Reverb domestically.

    Ridiculous... Sweetwater has a demo model for sale for $989 w/ free shipping and the 2 year warranty. For the additional $80-90 I'd go with the Sweetwater...

    If I said “we only have Hogan’s Heroes snow here”…

    Robert Clary, LeBeau, was actually in Buchenwald concentration camp. Leon Askin's parents were killed in one, he was Gen. Burkhalter. John Banner, Sgt. Schultz, lost a lot of family in camps.

    Is it time to replace the iPad?

    I have a iPad4 that gets a little finicky from time to time. When I'm done using the app, I quickly double press the home button and swipe the app's a force close. That way the app isn't running in the background hogging resources. Depending on what your using it could need...

    C-Band 5G dates and controversy.

    The airlines and pilots complained about this before the frequencies were sold in one listened. Pilots and airlines have been raising concerns over this for years. When the phone companies point to Europe's 5G rollout...they conveniently forget to mention the HUGE difference in...

    Can’t stand U2? Nor can Bono

    At least his band isn't named "Goo-Goo Dolls"...

    New Gibson (Maestro) Line of Pedals

    Reminded me of Howard Johnson from when I was a kid...which is probably the retro feel they intended. Who knows if they'll sell. You can get a Maestro clone for a lot less...they do one thing well and other than that there's a lot more versatile fuzz pedals out there. I couldn't get mine to...

    Not sure if a single ice cube counts as a diluted drink. ;)

    Anyone done P90 for neck with 250 pots ?

    I love my Lollars low winds! I had them in a Casino with a thin neck I hated, so I bought a new Casino specifically to give the pickups a decent home.

    Saw them on Austin City Limits several years hooked.

    Weird Phone Calls

    "I'd love to sell my house...but we'd have to do something about the bodies in the crawl space. Could you guys help with that? There aren't too many left with flesh on them..."

    Are fully electric cars really “coal cars”, “fracnatgas cars”, “uranium cars” or…

    Authoritarian? Seriously?? You do realize gas stations used to be far and few in between, interstate travel by car was something not terribly far removed from travel by covered wagon...and this didn't change until after WW2. 70 years ago a cross country trip by car took weeks, not days. By...

    Rachel Nagy has died. Long live rock.

    Love that band...

    A buddy wanted me to record a song with him and then he doesn't show up.

    If nothing had happened during the last meeting, was planning on meeting again and he's someone who normally returns texts and calls...I'd be concerned he's OK.

    Just played a Honeyburst Les Paul Tribute at GC - not a good idea

    Bought the Honeyburst Classic in's an amazingly nice LP. Got the Honeyburst b/c I really liked the faded look of it. It was the 3rd Gibson LP I've bought...and the only one I've liked enough to keep. Did add the pup covers.. Everything on it was perfect, fret ends, finish...even the...

    Actors I dislike for the wrong reason.

    Well not for the wrong reasons...but I can not stand Tom Cruise. Even without the cult thing, I just can't stand the sight of him.

    P-90 Noise. Worth it? Take the POLL!

    Nothing...nothing has the growl of P-90's in a hollow-body thru an overdriven amp. Mine aren't aren't any noisier than any other single coils I have.

    anybody here reload/handload ammo?

    Honestly if that's what you're starting with as a newbie...stop. I've seen them, but never used one. You'll need a lot more than just that kit, just looking at it my first question is how do you seat the primer. It's not exactly going to make accurate, as in to specs, rounds. Also...

    Graph Tech's RATIO machine heads: what do you think?

    I've got tuners that range from 14:1 to 21:1 costing anywhere from $40 to $100...they all work perfectly. They're good quality, turn smooth and don't have backlash. My tuner is accurate to .10 of a cent so I know they hold pitch. So what exactly is ANY benefit from this? What real life problem...

    Let's talk about Classic cartoon series and what you hate about them.

    The disrespect shown towards musical legends was appalling. If you're a 60's/70's era cartoon fan and you've never watched "Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law"...give it a try.

    Why. Oh, Why.

    Very true. I think that's also due in part to his personality too. The guys in the Dead probably wouldn't have him with them if they didn't like him as a person as much as his playing. They certainly don't need help putting butts in seats, but I'm sure it does help. If he was difficult or a...

    Why. Oh, Why.

    I honestly don't mean this as an insult...seriously I don't. If JM didn't possess two things, goods looks and an engaging personality...we'd be the only people who knew his name. If he was just some average looking schlub with no personality, he'd be one of the most in demand session players in...

    Fender CEO Says Guitar and Amp Stock Shortages Will Continue for 'at Least Two, Maybe Three, Quarters'

    My prediction is by summer of '22 there's going to be a huge glut of used gear on the market. People have bought soooo much gear over the last 18 months and that normal turn around time from buying it to..."I really don't want this." is going to be multiplied a few times over. I think guitar...
