    This is indeed the site that comes to mind when I think of a 'grumpy old man' forum in a guitar-driven context.

    In the early 80's, it seemed like every country band had peavey PA's and all peavey gear... I was still slingin a tele and fender super and feeling like I was not cool during the 'urban cowboy' days.... I always wanted one and got one about 10 years ago... SUCH a beast... and so many good sounds in it... after about 2 years, I sent it on to the next person, but, it was fun to have it and the giant molded case it came in... I used it on some gigs... and I had several guys tell me what you just said 'punk rock machine' and I thought... heck yeah, workingman's tools!

    I worked in a music store then repairing guitars ( Rondo Music) and I hated those. There were always two or three with the switches snapped off.

    I've only seen one 'El-Kabong' but it was a good one.
    Back in '69, a bar scuffle got out of hand and encroached on the stage. Our guitar player used his old Les Paul, Jr. to repel a drunk.
    Swinging the LP, Jr. like Thor's hammer the neck snapped.
    Amazingly, he had it glued and was using it within a week.
    Back in the day, I can't recall anyone with a spare guitar (or two, or three...), and similarly, nobody had/carried a spare amp. If someone's amp quit, you doubled up into someone else's amp.
    Sigh... didn't have T60s back then.

    Wow! A T-60. I bought a used one from my buddy's music store back in the early 90's. Way, way heavier than any LP I have ever seen. Sold it about ten years ago on CL to a guy that had the matching bass and the smaller T-?.

    Actually sold it for more than double what I had paid for it. Did sound good though.

    I for one am definitely grumpy. And I'm not even all that old. Getting there swiftly...
    I think I'll start another thread... "Things that Annoy Me." Think I'll get many responses?

    HAPPY NOTE: the only difference between a Boomer and a millenial is the size of our bank accounta and who owns the most toys cuz in 30 years when we are all gone the next generation will be sayin the same thing about the millenials

    I once owned a T-60.....technically still do, only in parts. I remembered seeing Jerry Reed and other guys on TV playing them, so when I came across one in a pawnshop (25+ years ago) for about $100 I bought it. NEVER could get it to play worth a hoot, plus it out-weighed my Honda Civic at the time. Only good part was the tuners.....I believe they were Schallers, only with the Peavey "P" symbol. I ended up using those on my first Tele, which ultimately got sold. I still have most of the parts of that T-60 around. I keep the "toothpick" thin neck by the door in case of intruders.....it would make a great "night stick". :)

    Deflecting humor is often an attempt to avoid discussing something that makes a person uncomfortable & mockery is the fallback for someone who hasn't managed to workup a good argument.

    Just the facts about US:

    Not all TDPRI'ers are old.
    Not all TDPRI'ers are men.
    Not all TDPRI'ers are grumpy.

    Three alternate facts about THEM:

    Women with pink hair are dumb.
    Women with pink hair are still hot.
    Women with pink hair are supporting breast cancer awareness month.

    In other news about news:

    Don't believe everything you read.
    Reportage is editorial.
    Facts is facts.
    And rare.
