  1. Eastern Standard Time We are six hours earlier than the time in Sweden.
  2. There is no camera or microphone on my computer, but it would be nice to listen in. The cell phone gave a warning about Zoom, but it can possibly be installed anyway. You could have multiple Zoom meetings stacked with ten minute breaks. The breaks would be a time for hitting the restroom, kitchen, etc.
  3. The owner of a local store was ordering something from Fender a couple of weeks ago, and it slipped out that Fender had just received dozens of pallets of returned merchandise from Guitar Center.
  4. Hey, he did not wake up married to a stranger or have a tattoo on his face. Losing the profit on the guitar was less than a DUI.
  5. Seen it. The bass is nice, but the price is for someone who spends stolen or counterfeit money.
  6. If the Boss chorus pedal is still available put my name on it.
  7. Batio had a show at a club nearby. Cancelled. I wanted to go.
  8. Unexpected checking would bother me, too. Having a Chaparral bass with similar maple, I am confident your bass is going to feel great and sound great when you play it.
  9. Michael Angelo Batio had a hand in the design. He is famous. Perhaps he can explain the positives of a shorter-than-short scale.
  10. Way back when, I played in a band with a keyboard player who was using the drummer's sister's Rhodes because he did not have his own portable piano. The keyboard player put a cigarette burn on it. Not cool. That was not forgotten over the years. The Rhodes was a nice design idea. It was going to be wiped out by digital keyboards with realistic piano sounds, but that ringing tine sound of the Rhodes sounds good on its own.
  11. I could be very happy with a 330. It is flat with squared edges instead of the round edges on the 360.
  12. I think it went to a friend of formula73. I could be really wrong about that.
  13. I think the concept is ingenious. The bass has a built in shillelagh for those times the audience gets out of hand.
  14. My 1982 Sunburst is my # 1 at this time. That would be the keeper. ...but once I pick up my (fill in model name) it makes me rethink my decision.
  15. You guys are making me jealous. If only my concert days had started about three years earlier!
  16. My story: The line for the restroom went right through the band on New Year's Eve.
  17. I could live Hamer's "TV yellow" that looked greenish... sort of. It was not my preferred color for sure. The more yellow finish looked nicer, but it was not really that good looking. I would still have a Special in that color, so it is sort of moot. Those silver burst Les Pauls looked nice when they were new, but they have ambered into an uglier green than I want to look at. Fortunately, you do not look at the front of your guitar as you play, just the neck if you look at your guitar at all while you play.
  18. Why would a Monaco III end up with a bag? Did someone steal it off a stand? Was a cat with a urinary ailment allowed to sleep in the original case? I wonder if they would let me trade in an Adam Jones Les Paul. I know I will be taking a hit, but I just didn't bond with it. That's all.
  19. The finish has that amber color to it. It has separated from the wood, and the back side has the texture of the wood. Light is reflecting as "gold." A repairman who is good with super-glue can fill the gap.
  20. You guys should know by now that a guitar should be judged on its tone and play-ability instead of looks.
