  1. I believe the Keeley Memphis Sun may be just what you're looking for.
  2. I doubt the seller realized that the logo had been obscured. I didn't notice it until I had the strings off and I was removing the truss rod cover. I had to adjust the lighting to get a clear photo. The seller's description was otherwise accurate and he was great to work with. No harm, no foul. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.
  3. The neck carve is significantly thicker than my 1981 Special. A bit thicker and less taper from top to bottom than the Gibson slim taper carve, but with a very similar C shape.
  4. This was annoying. But, the guitar is a keeper, so I decided to experiment to see if I could remove whatever was applied over the logo. A Mr. Clean Magic Eraser turned out to be aptly named. With not too much effort, the original logo was restored:
  5. I recently purchased an '82 Special from a seller on Reverb. The seller's photos did not include a clear shot of the headstock. I believe most, if not all, Specials from this year had checkerboard logos, so I was surprised when I opened the case and this one didn't. Not a big deal, but a slight disappointment. As I always do, I started disassembling the guitar to oil the fretboard, check the wiring, remove old DNA and do a set-up. I noticed some weirdness on the headstock and realized that someone had modified the logo.
  6. From the article: Frank Untermyer, Supply Chain Director at Martin, said the regulations' administrative burden on his company, as well as the impact on the global reach of music "cannot be overstated."
  7. C'mon Steve, this is clown puke (on the left): That's a "Barney Rubble". Seriously, I don't know the official name, but it's a rare and desirable guitar. You will soon be getting offers. BTW if you Google "Hamer Clown Puke" the image above is the first to appear.
  8. How did I MISS THIS?????? Apparently, I was distracted for the entire month of June. and July. and half of August! A very belated happy birthday, sir Rob. 50 - just a pup.
  9. Rick introduced Robin Taylor along with the rest of the band at the Waukegan, IL show on this tour. Maybe he forgot in Rochester.
  10. Firebird X Henry's folly. The answer to a question that nobody was asking.
  11. Now that's what I'm talking' about! Sconnies represent.
  12. I just did a refresh after realizing that I hadn't changed my profile content since 2004. I even added a photo that's actually me. Who else wants to get crazy?
