    The receiver is a Pioneer SX-650 from the late ‘70s. It’s only 35 watts/ch but as TeleTuscon said, it has a seriously big chunk of iron it in. It’s actually about to get swapped out for a more-powerful ‘80s Yamaha that I will in-borrow from my daughter as soon as she leaves for college. The Pioneer has just developed a full-time scratchy sound. I need to find someone to service it and put it back in solid working condition.

    Don’t anybody get the idea that I’m a neat freak. This place is usually a mess. Part of the minimalist look stems from the near-total lack of recording gear.

    Looks nice. I'd love a tidy room like that to play in.
    Unfortunately i'm messy and lazy so I have to play in my own clutter and filth.
    I remodel the house every 10 or so years and it looks nice like that for a couple of weeks.

    Walmart’s high-fashion finest.


    The exterior walls are 2x6 studs with extra insulation and the windows are double-pane with UV filtered glass. It all does a pretty good job of keeping the outside elements outside.

    I see an empty wall space behind the desk between two windows that needs another instrument.

    Maybe a mandolin or a ukulele... Or a banjo.

    Ah heck, you might as well just get yourself a double neck pedal steel guitar! :twisted::D:cool:

    Yes, quite nice, but you are giving us guitar players a bad reputation of being clean and organized people. What are you thinking?

    Oh, and how come you don't have a bunch of cables strewn out all over the floor?

    Very nice! Tell us more about the red Hamer — I love that body shape, the broad lines of those symmetrical cutaways. A classic style.

    It’s a “Slammer Series”, the first and arguably best line of Hamer imports. Made in Korea in the early ‘90s by Cort, I believe. Well-built out of nice hunk of mahogany. To get closer to the look and sound of the ‘70s USA Hamers, I put in a set of Gravelin pickups. I told Josh, “Double cream/zebra and make it sound like Budokan” and he took it from there. I also upgraded to Schallers and put in Switchcraft and CTS guts. For the times I want the double-humbucker, mahogany, Gibby-scale thang, it’s all the guitar I’ll ever need.

    ... but I play the goldtop PT more.

    P.S. I bought it largely because of James Honeyman-Scott and Andy Summers. My heroes, and they both did magazine ads in the ‘80s with red Hamer Sunbursts . (“Sunburst” was the model name of the Hamer bound, maple-topped double-cuts, despite fact that they came in red, black, and other colors.)

    The windows are there so we can see this.

    On Saturday, I replied using my phone. Now that I'm back at my computer, here's a picture.

    I was walking through Walmart with my daughter today, and noticed an end-cap display of lava lamps. (The two local colleges just moved back in for the new school year, saw it's dorm-decorating time.) It occurred to me that lava lamps have become so "establishment" that Walmart sells them, thereby voiding any statement they make about being cool or groovy, or counter-culture.

    Beside that, my kid had one a few years ago. They need a particular incandescent bulb to work, and the cheapest-possible one the Chinese installed lasted only a few months. When it burned out, a replacement was impossible to find.

    So, no lava lamp for me. Stick it to the man!
