    Cheap 1 watt guitar amp kit?

    I would just get a used Epiphone Valve Jr. It is however EL84 class A based. This one is as cheap as can be and has mods already(no affiliation)...

    REM Sleep Behavior Disorder...

    Sleep apnea perhaps? Do you know if you snore? I have sleep apnea but after attempting to use CPAP devises, I found that I loose even more sleep wearing them. My wife nudges me at times during our sleep so I will roll over to stop snoring so she can get back to sleep. I refuse to sleep in...

    2nd Build-Rob's JTM45 Micro

    Why not just grind the heads smaller on both the screws slightly to make it work? I don't think it would be very noticeable and it would be a far less hassle. Your design and execution is great and I'm sure it's going to be a great homebrew amp.

    RIP Marvin Lee Aday aka Meatloaf

    Is it just me but wouldn't Jack Black be perfect to do a tribute movie of Meatloaf? I'd watch it and I think he could pull it off as long as he doesn't over-accentuate ending note phrasing as he tends to do.

    Who likes/hates Fades (guitar finishes)?

    I did a "black burst plaintop" refinish on this Studio Lite. I liked the way it turned out. I'm not big on cherry or honey bursts and I prefer plaintops over flames.

    replace hot water heater prophylactically?

    ^^^^ worse installation option imaginable ^^^^. I've done plumbing, electrical and HVAC most of my life and any time I see one installed in an attic I always shake my head and ponder where else could it be sanely located. Even with a drain pan under it and a plumbed drain, you're still asking...

    Hand problem:

    I've been taking Gabapentin for years now and it really seems to help. I have major cervical neck issues and had 2 fusions to date and I have another nerve impingement at C4. Degenerative disk disease is no picnic. I wish you well with your issues.

    Ohio is freaky

    NW SC is nutz as far as the roads are. You can make a left turn say to the west, and end up going east. Also, the roads change the names at many intersections and worse than that, a lot of roads don't have street signs telling you the name of the road you're on. I loved Tucson for the way the...

    So the new Frontier is a Tacoma?

    I miss my '84 Chevy Silverado that I restored. My 2007 Silverado fills the void quite nicely. It still only has 42,000 miles on it and it's 14 years old!

    Colorado Fire

    Just watched a video of the fire from drivers point of view that were fleeing from the fire. Tragic and horrific. I hope that everyone got out from the path of the fire.

    You think you have too many guitars?

    Sadly I will never achieve my "cream my jeans" collection. I will say however that I would rather have very few "quality brand" named guitars than a bunch of "cheap" knock-off guitars. I spent the afternoon watching Rick's video a little here and there and really enjoyed it. He's a great...

    Ah, I knew you'd be a cutie patootie! I tried to "like" all the postings here but there's too many. Just know that I wish I can take the time to "like" them all.

    Man I wish I had the scratch...

    Yeah. I was skeptical and being facetious even starting this thread. I'm still intrigued however on how much the finish looks like nitro.

    Man I wish I had the scratch... didn't last 3 hours. I hope the callers gave them an earful for advertising a counterfeit.

    Man I wish I had the scratch...

    Here's the description in the ad. I won't say where it's posted however... "Nice playing Gibson Byrdland guitar for sale. Serial number- 0200556 USA made. Semi-hollow body. In excellent condition! Sells for prices ranging from $2,000-$5,000, selling this one for $950 cash. Would make a great...

    Man I wish I had the scratch...

    I believe they did make a non florentine cutaway in the 50's/60's but I can't find a later example unless it's a custom shop model.

    I know, right? I should contact them just to see what's they say if I offered $300 for it.

    Man I wish I had the scratch...

    Looks like nitro to me from my house. In the ad it says that they sell for $2,000-$5,000. Weird to state this. It might be a pissed off ex selling hubbies guitar cheap just to piss him off. :confused:
