  1. I was going to mention this one. The Shuffle Inn was a popular but smallish music club. I also had the opportunity to go and passed. I have no idea why. I had the album and knew who they were.😖
  2. Loser was written by a friend who moved next door when I was a freshman in high school. I'd been trying to learn guitar on a horrible piano store acoustic and he lent me a Silvertone amp-in case guitar. We immediately formed a band and have been playing together off and on ever since. The song was first played in public, at a school dance, in the mid 70's. Two years ago we decided to record some of the songs we wrote and played in bars through our teens and 20's. Loser was the first. Sadly, (for me anyway) it was the only one we completed tracking and got to the rough mix stage.
  3. So, did the guy with the congas own the PA or something?
  4. Thanks for the warning, but I won't be participating in that scene. Mrs. BadgerDave would would kill me (and them) dead.
  5. Nope. I've been BadgerDave in South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Minnesota and Illinois. Haven't actually lived in Wisconsin since 1989. I'd still love to spend summers in Madison if I ever retire though.
  6. I need to be in Florida on January 4. I likely won't be back home for 2 months and then it will be for weekends only. I'm moving to an apartment for at least 6 months, so . . . I need to downsize ASAP I'll be putting a lot of gear on Reverb, but I want to give you all first shot at my Hamer guitars at prices that reflect my motivation and avoidance of Reverb fees. 1. 2005 Hamer Studio Custom Triple Threat. This is the one that Hamer used in the Designer Gallery (as was discussed in a prior thread) and it's in near perfect condition. There's some patina on the pickups and l
  7. I'm sure that bass has stories to tell. If it were sentient, and could talk, of course. It would be interesting if the owner would post here and give us the history. The Boys from Illinoizz were an excellent and very popular bar band in the early 80s. I believe they opened for Cheap Trick (and other big touring bands). A close Hamer connection would not be surprising.
  8. I'm fine with snakes as a general concept. The sneaky ones that suddenly appear without notice terrify me. DO NOT OPEN THIS LINK IF SQUEEMISH!!!!!!!!!!!! https://www.cnn.com/2016/05/27/asia/thailand-snake-toilet/index.html
  9. Long story short: I got RIF'd two months ago at the height of the pandemic and just before the Holidays. I was pretty sure that this was going to be the start of a slow decline into poverty and desperation, but amazingly, I've been reprieved. On Monday, I accepted a great job offer in Boca Raton, Florida. So now the panic sets in. I need to be there, in person, on January 4th. Anyone local?
  10. That one is a Warmoth vintage/modern, currently mounted on a Sherwood green Tele body.
  11. Most are hanging on my wall. I have my preferences, which don't alway align with other's. With these, I think it's easier to part them out rather than try to sell the assembled guitars. The necks are a bit problematic since I applied Fender decals to many of them. Yes, Lollar and Lindy Fralin single coil pickups are favorites. I lived in Richmond when Lindy first opened his shop.
  12. 1. Warmoth Strat body, Seafoam Excellent+ condition, 90% sure this is Swamp Ash - $325 shipped to US addresses. 2. Warmoth Jazzmaster body, Fiesta Red, Alder. Excellent condition with a couple of tiny chips on the back and a scratch by the neck pocket (mostly under the pick guard - $300 shipped to US addresses. Add 3% for PayPal fees if you use it. Buy both for $600! I've had both of these fully assembled and they set up perfectly with Warmoth necks without shims.

Highwood bent steel vintage style saddles with bottom mounted adjustment screws (no screws protruding at the top of the saddle) Master volume, master tone and blend controls, 5 way switch Excellent, like new condition. $500 shipped in the US.

  15. The Wisconsin version is lame. A cow, corn and cheese. They could have used Les Paul, beer and Brett Favre.
  16. Neon Green I've been using these exclusively for a few years.
  17. If I wasn't in hard guitar reduction mode, I would have hit the Buy button on this one immediately. Still tempted, worth every penny of that asking price.
  18. It's an OK song, but why did they leave the click track in the final mix?
