    I have looked for a T51 but couldn´t find one as fast as I hoped to... Now I have to confess: I´ve buyed an 52 Fender Vintage Tele and even its no Hamer: I am "in love" with it! I hope I can stay here anyway :-)

    RIP Ray, you were one of my favorite HFC'er and friends. We had an instant connection, a shared passion for knowledge of how things work. I will never forget how your voice sounded on the other end of the line when you call me with a deal or just to see how things were going. I am deeply saddened about your passing and I will miss you.

    Flew into Louisville to take my son to the Bourbon & Beyond Festival this weekend, primarily, because he’s a HUGE Foo fan, but also because, well, Bourbon. Had the great pleasure of finally meeting Greg (Currypowder) in person. Glad we were finally able to catch up, and next time, we’ll bring Shishkovs to the party! I did really dig the Malcolm Young Gretsch too!

    misunderstanding!! I am old, but I am no dentist or lawyer so I can not afford an original 52 Tele!!! Only a "preowned" Telecaster 52 from US Vintage series!!!! ☺️

    I got to meet him in 2010. He really was a nice guy.

    I like Squeeze a lot. I still have the copy of ARGYBARGY I bought when it came out, one of my favorite albums. Definitely a “desert island” album pick.

    He was a great guy to talk with. I met him at Bruce’s place back in 2010. He fought a similar cancer to the one I had and we chatted a few times about it in recent years. RIP Ray.

    Oh, I get it now, you're talking about the 12-string bass. Sorry, I wasn't focused on that at first.

    Only if you let us borrow your Tele from time to time.

    Dave Grohl does not look impressed by Mr. Tillbrook’s choice of stage attire, despite the afternoon heat... However, Squeeze is great live, so he may just get a pass?

    I'm at the festival for day 2. I expect it to be a short one. Although I loved seeing the Foo Fighters for the first time and John Fogerty was sensational, I'm seriously geeking out to see Squeeze for the first time.

    I found out Jim Morgan was also there about halfway through the Foo’s set, and tried about 30 times to send a message, but next to zero connectivity in the place - it was packed!

    I have two Tele's. I think you're safe (as long as you post PHOTOS!).

    It's always awesome to connect with HFC members, I'm glad Chris and his family let me hang with them for a while. BTW, I also fondled that MY Gretsch and agree, it was by far the coolest guitar in the music tent. This was my HFC week, as I was travelling and got to hang with RobB over a few beers on Tuesday in CA.

    Damnit, that is what I didn't like about the Zen, the compression.

    That pedal is the best of the Zens IMO. Clear and less compressed but still that Zen sound. Works with all my guitars and all my amps. So far I am in for a Pickle Vibe and the Hi-Volt.

    My 6G2 Brownie and tweeds thank you - exactly the kind of bad influence - I mean endorsement - I needed! Just pulled the trigger!

    Transparent OD teamed up with the COT Boost. Its my #1, for the Princeton. I use it for multiple levels of gain and boost, and team it up with a Klon/Clone for leads. The JMP most likely is not going to be as transparent. I bought the JMP, because it I'm sure it will be a great match as well with the Princeton. These are very good with Fender Style Amps, and feel like a part of the amp and not a pedal in front of the amp.

    Meh. Dealing gear from a central warehouse can’t be much worse. At least you don’t have to deal with people face to face.

    The lineup can be expected to change over the course of the sale, which is unpredictable in length but often goes for a weekend. I’m on the lookout for a hoodie, myself.

    I was just able to make a connection with Ray's daughter on Facebook. They are planning Ray's funeral service, and I asked if would be OK to post details here. She said yes, so I will relay any information I hear.

    When I was a kid I collected rocks. When I got older guns. Then guitars. Now dust.

    I ended up with a collection of vintage Kaywoodie pipes and vintage typewriters, but it's only because I was buying and selling them on eBay and I ended up with a lot that I never sold. I'll eventually sell them if/when I get the time. However, the only thing I consciously collect because they're a source of inspiration and professional reference in my work are art books. I have a large library of art books, children's books, and fiction from the golden age of pulp. I have a lot of comics I bought as a kid, but I'll eventually get around to selling a lot of them. If I could collect anything I wanted (assuming money were not an issue), it'd probably be vintage cars, though I'd only get them if I could drive them. I see no point in collecting things just to sit around collecting dust.

    Space history memorabilia, if I could afford it. I do have a lot of unused publicity stickers from the Apollo, Skylab, and Apollo-Soyuz days. Come to think of it, they're around the same age as the two unused stickers I have from Dark Side of the Moon. The key word for affluent collectors in this niche is "flown."

    I have an International Scout and a 68 IH Pickup. I really fight the urge to collect, that is why I purge so much.

    I was told Bloozguy (Ray Egan) passed away September 2nd. I suspect it was due to the cancer he had been fighting for the last couple years. He was a long time HFCer and regular at the 4321 jams. If you ever attended one, you likely met him. He was also a lover and trader of fine guitars, often showing up at the jams with his latest catch which he would graciously allow others to enjoy as well. Glad to have met you and spend time with you Ray. your friend Ted Martin
