  1. You mad, bro?

    Fuck you, too, pal!
  2. Perhaps a visit to a B.C. Rich forum would provide a lot of information about Ed Roman. A friend bought a Gene Simmons Punisher bass from Ed Roman. In 1995 he took it to a KISS Convention for Gene to sign. As Gene signed it he looked it over carefully. One day Ed Roman called my friend asking if he would be interested in selling his Punisher, but my friend declined since he was a big KISS fan and the bass was now autographed. Roman said something like, "So you're the one." Apparently Gene called Ed Roman about the unauthorized B.C. Rich Punisher that was handed to him at the KISS Convention. Roman had been making them out of what he claimed were leftover factory parts, but officially there were only a few made for Gene when the company was still in business. Ernie Ball/Music Man stopped Ed Roman from selling any of their guitars.
  3. When I was trying to play with others I brought an MXR Distortion + with my Fender Pro Jr. My other amps are big and sound fine without pedals.
  4. You mad, bro?

    Yeah, man. Dish the dirt! Who did you play with and what did they say that was so bad?
  5. Separated at birth? Two Englishter wimmen entertainers

    Nope. Not seeing it.
  6. Hamer Chaparral Custom questions...

    The big black knobs Hamer used are something that should stay with the guitar.

    There are some of us who have more in a guitar than what it will bring if it goes up for sale, but they make us happy. If your Strat is what you really want in a Strat, the price paid is justified.
  8. Hamer Chaparral Custom questions...

    Some people are hopeless pickup swappers, always trying something different. Others will love EMG's. Many will want all the original parts. To third what RobB said, if you think you will use the EMG's later hang on to them and put back in the original pickups. If not, take the advice of MCChris and save yourself a little bit of labor. Are those knobs original?
  9. I remember the TC Electronic 2290 was in everyone big name guitar player's rack, and they were expensive. There are some on Reverb right now for $1900 to $2000. Now someone can get the same sounds for $350. Everything we loved about the 80's fits on a flash drive. It sucks. It really does.
  10. Diary from a Time Machine

    Last year Deep Purple played Chastain Park in Atlanta where the up close "seats" are tables. Since going there in the 80's that place always gave me the impression of being there for yuppies who wanted to be seen rather than those who were actual music fans. Some of them have to dance next to their tables so everyone can watch them. Then there is City Winery in a few cities east of the Mississippi. They book acts that play hard rock for a place that has tables everywhere for people who feel they would like some music to go along with their wine. I could not bring myself to go there for Uli Jon Roth, The Zombies, or Ian Hunter. Peachtree City, Georgia has a venue that has tables in front of the stage. I passed on seeing Cheap Trick play for people who were probably annoyed by the loud music interrupting their drinks and dinner. Fortunately, the place is just outside of my range of being able to drive home the same night. So, your bandmates may be on to something by playing heavy music for a cocktail party crowd.
  11. Deal Breakers

    There is a country song there if you just finish out the lyrics!
  12. Ya gotta laugh...

    You mean someone could suggest a pedal repairman who makes modifications to KLONs to make them sound better?
