    We had a human dog with us for a good, long while once. She still comes up in conversation, just like a departed family member. I was hoping to hear from you on this thread.

    It was at the Met this year, in the "Play It Loud" exhibit. It looked rough.

    Thank you sir. Old Toto was mischievous much like a kid. One time I was tossing his ball for him, and he ran back to where I was and dropped the ball, and pushed it under a couch with his nose then stood there whining for me to get it for him. Somehow, when I turned around to get a flash light, he got the ball back out from under the couch. When I was kneeled down looking for the ball that wasn't there, it came rolling between my knees from behind me! I swear that dog could laugh.

    I should have mentioned, it's better to have had the experience of a dog like that than to never have known the joy one can bring. People who have known Toto even casually still speak of him. At Halloween he was missed by adults and kids alike last year, and this year as well. I'm glad you had the chance to have a friend like that.

    Mine is a photo of one of my Telecasters - an American Standard with painted headcap that was one of Fender's "Magnificent Seven" Limited Edition guitars that they released in 2016. Here's a full size photo of it:

    I object to your screen name and your avatar image, both of which are in bad taste. At the same time, I press "like" on your posting, because I share your sense of humor, apparently.

    This is a Telecaster forum with a focus on modded guitars. My avatar Telecaster started its life as a MIM Nashville. I never bonded with the middle pickup and never bonded with the 60 cycle hum. The pickups are now N4 noiseless with an S1 switch. The S1 switch didn't fit the control cavity so I had to remove a little (maybe more than a little) wood. The height adjustment screws were a little longer than the pickup cavities were deep. A 1/4" bit took care of that problem. The neck pickup is a little wider than the Tex-Mex. My Dremel tool came in handy there. I found a pickguard that almost exactly matches the dots on the rosewood neck, but two holes for the screws didn't match. I learned that modding a Telecaster isn't always plug and play but done right, you end up with a very personalized guitar that you enjoy much more than what you started with. I'm not worried about resale. This one goes in the sarcophagus with me just before they nail it shut. I'm going to want to be playing on that long trip down the river.

    I wasn’t sure what to use when I signed up a couple months ago so I snapped a close up photo of the label on the beer I was drinking that day. By the way I highly recommend it if you like IPAs, very tasty.

    Ah.....The blindfold:

    It represents a trinitarian resistance to clarity, denial, and limited views, through resignation of cognizance of inveigle manifestations, facilitating an integrity towards the truth.
    It symbolizes the dichotomy of the conscious and the unconscious, the stasis or a lesser state of consciousness, with a connection to feeling over senses, emphasizing the importance of emotion over perception.
    The rectitude of truth permeates unhindered though the veil, allowing the heart to rule over the perception of experience, rather than the often missleading "facts" available in the external enforced reality. Thus allowing opinions to be guided by emotion, rather than through more than tactile perception of vision when percieving conflicting situations. Free rein is empowered to the divinity indwelling and surrounding me, unhindered and impartial to either agitate or mitigate power wrought by prejustice towards the interconnectivity between external and internal influence.








    ;)What drivel....I just liked the image. Found it in an advert in an old magazine.

    My number one for many years, a battered 50s Strat refinished pink by a prior owner.

    It’s leaning up against a pro-jr rehoused in a 12” cabinet.

    It's a Telecaster.
    It's Jimmy Page.

    What else is there to say?
