    Pure Vintage 64 vs Palo Duro

    Any sound clips out there that A/B the two? Much difference between the two, or pretty similar? Rounding up parts for a double bound surf green project, already have a spare set of Palo Duro looking for a home, but that grass is greener thing just reared it,s ugly head..

    Which WGS 10'' speaker is closest to the Eminence 105?

    Dunno about closest to Greenback, but just swapped out the stock 12" Cannabis Rex that came in a tweed Sweetwater Princeton Reverb with a WGS G10A, like it waaaaay better. They have sound clips on their website, might help you get dialed in a bit..

    What is 'boxy'?

    Slightly different take, I have a smaller bodied Guild acoustic, M 120, all mahogany. Have heard that described as having a boxy tone, which I think fits. More mids forward, slightly subdued highs. Less bass. Compare that to a a Jumbo, which would be more piano like in range, comparatively...

    Should I get a tele with humbuckers, or am I better of getting a Gibson ?

    I like Lester's, and I like Teles,s, choosing between em is going down a bad road.. Find a Les Paul you like, sign over that first born like my Pappy did with me, and take a while to get to know that guitar.

    Man, thought I was sort of okay with guitars for awhile, saw that pink Thinline pop up for pre order at CME a few weeks ago, been plotting and scheming ever since!

    My son wants to move to the mountains

    Cost of living, maybe not cheap. Head for Alaska, he,ll love it or hate it, usually not much in between. An hour or so from Anchorage, he should be able to find a band/play in scene that fits, maybe. Mountains, yes. Plenty of hiking, check. I,m a little biased, mostly been in Alaska since 94, I...

    Post your favorite guitars your using now

    Screen pic of the Guild F40 Traditional before it came home. Usually pretty OCD about researching the hell out of something before buying it, but this was a better lucky than good moment. A couple weeks after my Dad passed away this fall, one Saturday morning still in a fog, snooping around on...

    What brand of boots do you wear?

    Hoffman boots at work, pacs if it gets cold enough, was regular lineman steel toes for 5 years, switched to armor pros two years ago. Instantly comfy vs the painful one month break in. Scarpa Frankenstein boots on weekends in the boonies. Will say, January of 2017, broke a couple toes, the...

    anybody here reload/handload ammo?

    Some good information, one thing I would add, seek out a mentor. Someone that has been reloading for a while, and hasn't lost any fingers or other parts in the process. Keep notes, track and label everything, be OCD about it. If you are at the range, boonies, wherever you go shooting, and start...

    I know people are afraid to post their mugs ...

    I ain't a skeered.. At least not in this pic..flying out to Niblak or Neets Bay, can't remember which. Second to last run to Pt Baker, would have likely been surf green on the way back, late October SE Alaska, not a fan of float plane joy riding..

    Online Guitar Purchases that showed up Perfect !!!

    Pretty much everything is online these days, most of pretty decent when I get them. Some really good. Tried bringing in an Epiphone 339, swing and a miss, figured 3d round, call it. After a six month wait, Gibson 339 arrived. The one and only guitar I,ve ever run across that actually had twisted...

    What is the oldest Coffee you've ever drank.

    Dunno about oldest, but the worst, one and only time I had to send back a cup of coffee, Husky truck stop in Prince George, BC. Waiting on a truck repair, breakfast, and what was probably the 10th rerun of two or three day old grounds. I,m pretty much a dumpster diving Bear from a culinary...

    Alcohol Free January Starts...

    Whew!! New year's eve, 1992, managed to not drink. New year's day, didn't fare so well, one sick pup, rough shape for another month or two. Didn't quite figure it out then. Finally sobered up in 97, been sober ever since. To say the quality of my problems has vastly changed would be one hell of...

    New Year's Eve guitar inbound!!

    So, this is the year I went a little nuts on guitars, bought a few ( maybe more than a few ..), sold a few, put a couple together, etc.. Back in October, got a Guild F 40 traditional, totally blew me away. Love that guitar. Went a couple months without the itch for a new guitar hitting like it...

    People who drive to get their morning coffee

    Nope. I,m in the people who drink their coffee so they can drive category.. Simple rule of thumb, no talking to anybody other than my wife or the household critters before the second cup, and even then, gotta watch it, or I sound like the Swedish Chef.

    Any Righties Tried Paying A Lefty (or vice versa)?

    Oy...there are some things I can almost pass for ambidextrous, almost. And some others, hurt myself sooner or later. Guitar, haven't messed with trying go lefty in years. Could fret the notes all right with the right hand instead of left, but tryna pick with the left hand, no Bueno. Train wreck...

    I'm a very different person online than in-person

    What's that little bit ya hear on occasion? First, do no harm? So, full disclosure..I have a gift for pissing people off with little to no effort on my part, quite often unintentionally. For a long time, my mantra was " just don't be a dick".. I have tried to learn the art of asking the...
