  1. 20 years ago they were $250. So is my price OK? Serious question, because I asked what Dave was asking, thinking it wasn't out of line. ETA: Plus, it's got my mojo on it, which makes it worth waaaay more.
  2. Fine. So it'll be slightly relic'd. Some people pay extra for that. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it.
  3. Last night was the first time ever wearing earplugs to a rehearsal. They were the 3M re-usable rubber kind, which is basically like sticking your fingers in your ears and yelling 'What?' a lot. They helped with the volume quite a bit, but I couldn't tell what anything sounded like - no detail, blanket-over-everything mush pretty much. I'm going for a hearing test in a month or so but in the meantime would like to find a pair that maintains the actual sound, just lowered a few notches. Got anything? (I searched the HFC because I thought we'd done this before, but came up empty)
  4. Got this from Dave's Madison store back in October after Crunchee posted a heads-up: Stupid clean, bigger side of medium C neck, minimal fret wear - just a really nice clean guitar. Dave's pictures: My pictures: Dave's pictures are a little more carmel-colored, mine are a tic more red/orange. The real color is somewhere in-between and amazing in person. If there wasn't something brewing, I'd keep it. No dents/dings/biffs. Comes with the OHSC in equally great condition. $1250/shipped CONUS.
  5. It'll be fine. Mike uses that anti-cold formula finish.
  6. Hey! I just noticed you're only a couple hours north of here. It's been warm - OPEN THE BOX!!
  7. That's why I loved them - the flatter radius felt more natural for a person who typically played a Les Paul. I have a '75 Strat I rarely play because while it sounds amazing, it doesn't play nearly as well (for me).
  8. Almost in time for St Pats. Nice.
  9. Greg did the second repair. Murkat fixed it after UPS broke it - again - after that.
  10. We've all probably thrown together an odd combination of gear that worked waaay better than it should have, either by accident or necessity. I had a really cheap 4x10 guitar cabinet - I'm talkin' like $20 cheap - and the second you pushed it, even a little, it totally farted out, worse than any holey/tore speaker you might have heard. One day me and a buddy were surfin' for speakers for his Bronco and came across 10" subwoofers with some absurd power rating - new-in-the-box for $5 each. Light bulb came on. Hell yeah! I pulled the speakers from the cheap cab and for $20 replaced them with those subs. I'm currently running a 400W SWR head into this thing and it sounds unbelievably good. Even real bass players like it. It shouldn't have worked that well (at all, for that matter), but we use it at every jam.
  11. Nice! Shouldn't the chicken wire be in front of the band?
