  1. Does it sound as good as the older one?
  2. Who gigs the "good stuff"?

    My acoustic was quite expensive (for me) about $2,500. But it's a Boucher, which isn't a super well known brand. Similarly, in my neck of the woods, my Hamer Studio doesn't get too much attention. I think there's more risk of theft with "big" names, Gibson, Fender etc. I keep a close eye on them at shows for sure but think I'd be more paranoid playing a Martin or a Les Paul.
  3. What's been going on in the shop - next chapter

    The wood looks amazing, just amazing.
  4. So anyone digging Danko Jones ?

    Ha! Well, they're Canadian and not even that big here, so I can see how they would have slipped under your radar.
  5. So anyone digging Danko Jones ?

    They're good! Very intense. Been kicking around for a long time.
  6. CD sales vs. download sales: Recent statistics?

    Ha! Yeah, it's not quite the same, that's for sure. In some ways, digital has made stuff too easy. I love my Google Play subscription though! So I guess I'm caught between nostalgia and convenience.
  7. Volume knob

    It's weird, Hamers are known to have good pots that keep the mud away with the volume knob down. Is is possible that someone switched out the pots?
  8. There's a lot of grumpiness about music on this board! But really, there's soooo much good stuff being made now. You just have to dig around a bit.
  9. CD sales vs. download sales: Recent statistics?

    Around here, and also a niche on the net, cassettes are making a weird comeback amoung the indie hipsterish folks. At first I thought it was super dumb (in a lot of ways it is) but I think we're going to make one for the next ep. Any way to reach a niche of people interested in music is appreciated.
  10. I don't know enough to say anything about Nugent, and I'm with you that Bono is quite sanctimonious. But politics/socioeconomics is right front in centre of a ton of Bruce S. songs, so it seems pretty natural that he would talk about issues on stage too. I get where you're coming from, but It for singers like that, politics is part of the reason they're singing in the first place so it's part of the package.
  11. Aqua Tally on CL

    Love the binding on that! Really great touch.
  12. Chester Bennington's Newport

    Yeah...karma does pay you back though. You sleep well with your decision and you don't have to feel like an asshole for anything you did. Not having to apologize for anything is golden. Wait a sec! I just realized I might have made a reading comprehension error. Did you mean that karma doesn't pay you back in a bad way so it's all good?
  13. Hey Canada!

    You're not getting mine! ha.
