    Hi

    Anyone remember when Sir Paul got thrown in the pokey in Japan? I remember it like it was yesterday. Ted Koppel was doing his 11:30pm nightly report on the 52 Americans held hostage in Iran, Koppel would start out the report with "DAY 299, DAY 300 etc", (this nightly hostage report went on to become the evening national news show "Nightline"). So McCartney gets busted with weed in Tokyo and winds up in a Japanese slammer with no sign of the Japanese willing to release him anytime soon. SNL's "Weekend Update" segment opens with a picture of McCartney being hauled off to the clink and I think it
  3. I figure it will be up in the St. Louis marketplace tomorrow or soon anyways..If anyone see's it...you should ask some really detailed questions regarding the frets and finish etc...Don't get me wrong...it's a nice guitar but really needs some fret work but totally playable as is should you want to make an offer on it. I don't think they are willing to sell it to me....just a hunch?...lol!
  4. I had a Lil Dawg Pug 18 watter...clone of a 1974 Normal Channel. I don’t have many gear regrets, but I do regret selling that one. The current owner refers to it as a “flamethrower”. Indeed. I might order another one.

    Hi

    And the batch after this one will have something different...I can for sure tell you that...
  6. So..I contact the seller to let her know I'd still buy the guitar and she contacted be back with this "You took a floating bridge guitar, lowered it two levels and didn’t tighten the screws so it sounds terrible. Happy thrashing. PayPal refunded you. Do not contact me again or it will be considered harassment." Umm..yeah...it's gonna sound terrible until you tune the damn thing up!! I of course slackened the strings a bit for shipping and well..this is what I was dealing with..uggh!!
  7. Today
  8. Of course I watched that video as soon as it came out. Dave is super knowledgeable and Pete seems like such a nice guy and way cool to boot. Always a treat to hear them reminisce and tell their stories.
  9. I just got the email telling me....REFUND!!! Case closed in my favor!!! Fuck yeah!!! pardon my french
  10. Hey did you happen to use a credit card to fund the PP payment? If you did, go to your card company and tell them what happened. Using your credit card is an extra layer of protection. They should certainly protect you no matter what the PP nazi fucks do. If they side with you on it (and I'm sure they will) they'll reverse the payment for you and PP will be stuck without a dime and the guitar WILL go back.
  11. Get a quality Weller with adjustable heat. They're not too expensive. I use a 70 watt model that runs as hot as 850F. For stuff like that I'll run it at 700F and at that temp it will melt the solder on that jack way before it heats the pot up. Using a 700F soldering gun is way better for your stuff than a cheapo that runs at 3-400 F because you don't have to sit there waiting for everything to get hot enough to melt solder. The 70watt iron knocks the job out real fast and without harm.
  12. Sad thing is...I would have liked to keep the guitar but...Not at the price I paid for a supposedly "like new" guitar..I'm still waiting to hear the outcome and I'm sure they'll claim the guitar isn't in the same condition or some bullshit like that. I've made them an offer when this whole thing started but..The profit they must have made off of me is too hard to give up I guess? Anyways...Thanks for all the support guys!!
  13. Uh, guys, the sticker can be replaced with a better sticker. Does anyone still have a Dean Markley sticker sitting around?
  14. Well, it IS 6-in-line and not a paddle. But it's not a Diablo/GT style head stock
  15. Thanks! It’s a great guitar. For $1.6k, sheeit...I guess I can always consign it locally if it doesn’t sell here.

      Yeah, Robert Armstrong. Not as famous as Crumb or those guys, but I liked his comix.
