  1. Diver Down was the new album when I finally got to see Van Halen in concert. I can remember the feeling of being blown away by seeing Ed play live on stage.
  2. Crosby was at least honest. He should have known to just be polite and save his opinion for later. I can relate though. My comments about Jerry Garcia at the time of his death were not respectful to his fans who were as dedicated as any EVH fan. I should not have done that. It was not like I hated Garcia, either, just the younger generation of fans that Jerry failed to encourage to take baths. 40 years ago friends who are 10 - 15 years older than me said that CSN was always better when Neil Young was with them.
  3. If someone waits for EVH to die to consider buying some of the gear associated with him, what is the point? Production of Music Man EVH guitars and Peavey 5150 amps ended decades ago. If someone wanted a 1977 Trans Am they should not have waited for Burt Reynolds to die as a reason to get one.
  4. Who owned the gear? Was it Eddie, or was it a business separate from Eddie? That will make a difference with regard to inheritance tax that often requires having to sell off stuff like musical gear or pieces of art the deceased person created. If all of the guitars and amps are legally inventory in a company's possession nothing has to be sold.
  5. I thought the seal and color coats were nitrocellulose lacquer.
  6. I like the black hardware. I have it on my 8 string bass with the same Aztec Gold finish as your Special FM. I would like to suggest black pickup rings.
  7. not looking... not going to go back... nope... not going to try it...
  8. Does Ray Manzarek's voice and demeanor remind anyone of a specific HFC member?
  9. A dowel rod will be better than toothpicks (I have done that, too.) so you have more solid wood. In another thread Jeff R suggested either placing the dowel rod offset or drilling the new hole offset so that if the glue breaks the new wood will not spin when tightening the screw.
  10. Yes. Affirmative. Absolutely. Dead on. Bingo. Positively. You got it. True. Undoubtedly. Yeah, man. Truly. Correct. Certainly. Exactamundo. On the money. Aye. By all means. Without a doubt. Indubitably. Word. According to Hoyle. Factual. For sure. Amen.
  11. If I should ever be in an 80s cover band, Mullet Over is the name I plan on stealing. Thank you, HamerCustomEr.
  12. "Classic rock" radio stations must have caused someone out there to never want to hear certain Hendrix songs ever again.
  13. You are listening differently. By now we have heard the people influenced by the people who were influenced by Hendrix, and maybe another generation or two. Just listening to Hendrix and comparing him to all the new guys or other good guitar players from our youth is worthwhile. He really did stand out. Like all blues based players, Hendrix would have been pushed aside for a while in the 80s. He would have still been making money, though.
  14. The heel on other Standards were blended into the body. Did that shelf look take less time to finish the shaping? Did it cut an hour of labor? The heel carve still follows the rounded part of the body under the heel.
  15. The Station in Rhode Island was the site of the fire that killed over 100 people who showed up for a Great White concert. The ceiling was covered with some kind of foam board that "flashed" all at once. Whether your garage is attached or separate from the house does not matter. You need to avoid having a potential disaster. A shed that is away from the house might be OK, but remember the risk. No one expects a fire, but they happen. Styrofoam burns too easy. If the fumes or smoke get in your house you are in trouble long before the flames follow.
  16. If blue guitars sound better does that mean this Les Paul is in the same league as the Custom Shop reproduction Les Pauls?
  17. The rest of the guitar looks nice. Buy it and play the heck out of it.
  18. It is surprising that a certain moderator has not mentioned this one yet.
  19. The only Moonstone I ever tried out weighed a ton. It was heavier than any other guitar I ever picked up.
