  1. Yeah, that's pretty sweet. Makes me want to try another one.
  2. That's a damn clever item. Didn't know it existed. Might've even kept that Newport if it had one of those........or not.......Bigsbys belong on Gretschs.
  3. Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. I thought Dave bought it. My reading ability is like bubs' writing ability. How Top Boost Vox-y is it? I have an AC10 that's a killer little amp and really nails that sound. But it's kind of a one-trick pony and could stand a few more watts.
  4. So sorry to hear that. Damn. 'Enjoy every sandwich.'
  5. That's actually the beauty of it. And once it's tuned in it stays rock solid pretty much forever, unlike a TOM that whenever you change strings you have to re-adjust the bridge height because some oaf accidentally turned the damn height adjusters trying to clean the nastiness that wads up under it between the bridge pickup. That's where the Cowpie Custom comes in. I have 2 Maple-topped, Ebony-boarded Sustain Block guitars that are, by nature, high-ended ice pick machines. Moving the polepieces forward on the G, B and E strings fattens them up and rounds them off while leaving the low E, A and G strings with some bite. Moving them that little bit really did make a big difference.
  6. The Antiquities in the 30th Anniversary were fantastic at that, but..... It's the Gravelin Cowpie Custom all the way. It's clear like the Antiquity but with a thicker, just slightly rounded top that plays well with the Sustain Block. I switched out the P90 in my Shishkov (maple top/ Sustain Block) and it does the best no-compromise combination of clean and overdriven of any bridge pickup I've ever encountered. For me personally, Josh couldn't have hit it any further out of the park.
  7. We've had some pretty large dogs before but how the hell big was that thing for him to be digging a hole the size of a grown man??
  8. Cowpie Customs My Les Paul never sounded better.
  9. If it says 'Hamer' on the headstock, you can bet somewhere out there is one so equipped. Prying it loose from it's current owner is a different story....
  10. ^^^ F*cking hell, Jamie. My wife says every one of those things about me.
  11. 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.
  12. ...but that is reeeeally tempting. I have a couple Quilter Micro Blocks and still can't believe that sound comes from a tiny tubeless box. Incredible. I hope somebody buys this soon. Very soon.
  13. Why has no one named an amp 'Boobs'? I'd rather get my hands on some of those.
  14. His voice is fantastic. I started watching this wondering if he could pull it off. Holy cow - I guess so! Blew me away. Many years ago (and for the longest time) I thought this was a Steve Winwood/Blind Faith/Traffic song because, well, with the organ and the vocal similarities it's plausible, right?
