  1. So I've been staying at my father in laws who is recovering from a knee replacement surgery!! I lived here in his with my wife while we were in between moves about 5 yrs ago and of course I left a bunch of gear behind in our old bedroom .. so I started going though cases and was reunited with this 1982 special that was white and beat up bad at one time that I had re-done by Aaron Henderson of lowel guitars.. he did fret job crown inlays and new top. Crazy how I haven't played this guitar in maybe 7 yrs and thing plays and sounds amazing. I had to tweak the neck lil and that's it .. i let he

  2. I thought Larivee was a Canadian brand? Remember these? They were all the rage her in Sweden in the late 80s, for like five minutes. My neighbour down the street is the old ABBA guitarist Janne Schaffer. He's a nice guy. He's played his red three single coil version Larivee since the 80's. It's worn down but he loves it. It got stolen na few years back. The thieves were after his 58 Les Paul, but got the Larivee instead. Talk about a bummer. Haha. He recently got the Larivee back from the Police.

  5. I have an early tobacco burst/maple that is the perfect Tele. The pickups are hands down the best real (not noiseless) single coils I've heard. I'm not very big on Seymours but they did these right. Seymour Duncan worked a deal with Larrivee to ghost-build a small run of ridiculously expensive Tele-Gib copies. Since they were tooling up anyway they released their own version in the Bakersfield that were streeting between $1500-$1600. Same woods, same carves. They're usually a pretty screaming deal on the used market. Matt Larrivee eventually started using his own pickups and I think

  6. Since we're on the topic of wordplay in naming things: Several years ago, Elon University, a private college located between Chapel Hill and Greensboro here in NC, chose to rebrand its athletic teams. They had, since the schools' founding, been the "Fighting Christian(s)" and while they desperately sought relevance amongst the millennial set, they wanted the new name/mascot to have at least a tangential connection to the institution's Christian roots. In order to generate ideas for a new brand, university officials solicited ideas from students, alumni, the community at-large, etc. Her

  8. Lol I know it sounds crazy. I've been in the music scene & biz since 1991. Gigging and I owned a studio in NYC & staten island... so I just accumulated so much gear over the years from artists & company's and in some cases payments ..I do occasionally sell something. It's hard to let good guitars go . When I take them out to take pics of the them I change my mind lol...here is my now home studio I use mostly for band rehearsal. I do have zoom r8 & pro tools rig ready to go ..as for hamers I do have about 12 hamer usa sunburst early 90s . I do perfer thinner neck profile sti

  11. I averaged 200 gigs per year for 19 years until March 11 this year. Since then, everything was shut down (I live in NY) and I taught and did remote recordings for about two months. Then CT got ahead of things, and some places really got it right. Check out this drone photo of O’Neills in South Norwalk- when things got dicey they threw down Astro turf in their parking lot, put up tents and tiki torches and planters to separate them all - so they feel like cabanas- and have very responsible separated seating for 160 people and the stage is 20 feet away from the nearest patron.

  13. its really nice ... 1 3/4" nut "They say" the body is an exact replica of the tele body Seymour Duncan carved for Jeff Beck. The pots were also designed by SD and Jeff Beck. And the neck is an exact copy of a 53 broadcaster neck. Callaham parts. SD custom shop pickups. ASH. French polish. it feels like custom shop without being all fancy. i'm not a Tele expert like some of you but this is the bomb, as the kids say these days

  17. #31 of a limited series of (I believe) 35 or so. SOLD. I won't go into a bunch of accolades, those who are looking are probably at least familiar with the Korina Artist models. This one takes that model and adds crown inlays, neck binding and Duncan Seth Lovers pickups. Condition-wise, I would call it very good with only light and normal playwear. There is some very light fretwear in the cowboy chord area, but nothing that requires any work, IMO The finish on the back seems to be a little cloudy and I don't know if that playwear or something to do with the finish itself. It's smooth,

  18. 2005 Hamer Studio Custom Transparent Black with an unbound headstock that I picked up from another member probably around 2008. A few years later I realized a dream by working with BCR Greg to install a third humbucker. The Pickups are medium output Fralins and the tone pot is a push/pull to will blend in the volume of the middle pickup when activated. Plays like a dream, plenty of fret life and no known issues. At the time of the alterations, Greg also expertly repaired a superficial finish blem the nearly invisible remnants of which I tried to capture in one of the pics. Includes perio

  19. Growing up in the band scene in Toronto, Canada, I always dreamed of playing the Horseshoe Tavern, the most prestigious bar gig in our country. Anybody who has come out of Canada has played The 'Shoe, including Blue Rodeo, the Tragically Hip, Amanda Marshall, and Bryan Adams... Even the Rolling Stones have played there, and Melissa Etheridge too. Anyway, after coming close to a gig there in the 1990s (that is another story), I finally got a Friday night show there in 2001! I was so excited! Aside from the fact that nothing ever came of the gig, and that after the show started, it was j

  25. unfortunately I was associated with bands named Needs Work and Idle Frets. The first band was awful. At practice we'd play something. It would be terrible. Somebody would say "needs work" but instead of practicing, we'd move on to something else that also needed work. That band morphed into Idle Frets. I preferred Baldwin Grey and the Hot Flashes. It got vetoed by our female sax player whose last name was Flash and she was probably at that time of life. At that time our bass player was bald, and my beard was rapidly greying.

  26. Erase the "T" in the title on reverb. T stands for TOM, i.e. non-floyded , if I am not mistaken.

  27. Yeah, some of the winners I've had to be in a room that they were suggested in: Deny the 9, Fire Breathing CoolAid (this is how the guy who suggested it spelled and spaced it), Downhill Luge Brothers, Limited Wisdom (never pick a name that flat out tells people you're idiots), Classic Wisdom (yeah, that dude was in love with Wisdom), Funky Trousers, Kickin Back. Another guy would always use the word Steel though I can't remember anything specifically that he'd suggested, but then half the time he'd want to play BonJovi ballads. Go figure.

  32. This was a week ago Sunday on the back deck of the 4-3-2-1 Club. Famous Volcanoes have been turning our outdoor practice sessions into neighborhood performances this summer. We've even managed to learn some new songs in the process, apologizing to our friendly neighborhood fans in advance for playing songs we don't know yet. Two new covers include Rose Garden and Pictures of Matchstick Men. Too much fun, and it's good to play in front of people, for sure. Early in the year we were joking that this was going to be the Year of the Volcano because we had a monthly paying gig lined up at a local b

  33. F/S is my Artist Ultimate Serial # would make it a 2003 but completed January 2004. One of a very few Ultimates finished other than Cognac and just as rare a quilt top. This top was picked by myselt in New Hartford after my original choice was deemed unusable.This has been rarely played in the past few years and has left my home on only a couple of occasions. Iwould rate the condition as 9.5. No visible fret wear. Two dings in the top in the purfling that wont show in the photo. Otherwise there is some swirling and some hardware tarnish. Pictures at the top were taken today. some of the g

  36. I heard for a while Dave Mustaine was in the running to buy Jackson guitars. I have no idea what the ownership structure was like though. I thought Grover did own it outright after buying out Wayne Charvel and the Charvel name. Then at some time he apparently sold it to a company called IMC, who then sold it to Fender. "After gaining popularity during the hard rock era, Grover Jackson sold the Charvel/Jackson brand to the International Music Company in 1989 and left the company in 1990"
