  1. Wouldn't the insurance basically just put the house back the way it was? How would Ace benefit from that? Unless he was looking for some free home improvements.
  2. Well.. after shipping a guitar UPS "Ground", and being told the headstock broke when the "Plane" hit a certain altitude... I would say anything is possible.
  3. Similar to a story I witnessed in Rolls Music, where the owner offers a guy $150 on a guitar , and another dood, in the store, says "I'll give you $200"! The owner got pissed, and tossed the guy out of his store. Too funny, and quite memorable for those east coast folks that remember Rolls.
  4. That Petrol Emotion - Chemicrazy Had this album circa '90... totally forgot about them until doing a search for bands similar to Ned's Atomic Dustbin:
  5. I've still never heard a note from his album, but I soon will on the Podcast, I'm sure. Ace's solo record is pretty good... very dated, yet still very cool.. "I'm in need of love" would be the cut to play, IMHO.
  6. Best Zep drum ripoff with cool delay, and Stones like guitars!
  7. Unless you are giving away those 4 Fenders, you may be waiting a long time to get the money. I've attempted to sell a few Fender basses in the last couple years. All I will say is... "good luck"
  8. Top is Czech... Bottom USA, '96 from what I recall.. S/N stamped in fingerboard.
  9. Awesome! Ace's original choice in axe! Here's another Rock and Roll icon playing that Ovation:
  10. Not sure what year that is, but you look like you would have fit right in, with all the other freaks, when I saw Devo circa '77. You'd have actually looked kind of tame.
  11. Cool... been on a Chicago kick in the last year, based on Cetera's bass playing. Good to hear UFO, and New England. There was some guy near me selling a Fender '51 P (Japanese) that he claims was used on Sound City. It was on CL for ahwile. If it reappears, I'll post the link.
  12. Sounds like Maytheks to me. Should have just thrown an "R" in there, and been "Steve Matthers, as the Beaver."
  13. Now we're onto something. Not for nothing, but that Roots dude is a fairly high profile Gibson endorser. I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if that was a stunt. We're hoping, but the crazing on this headstock and the chipping of the gold figure in the middle looks more like vintage aging to me. I s'pose it could have gotten surface cracks that way from the fall. The smashed white one looks very vintage. The white one posted earlier in the thread was a Gibson CS release from a few years ago. It has P90's. The 50th, just released, has mini hums with vibrato, and appears to only be available in cherry. the white one, in the Sweetwater catalog, is a different model.
  14. Au contraire. http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/Doublecut/Epiphone/1962-Wilshire.aspx Yes, it was white (or off-white) in the catalog. I remember when Gibson did these, with the P-90s. I like the one with the mini hums, but could do without the tremelo... at least they got the knob layout correct. Always a cool looking guitar in my book.
  15. Somewhere in Joisey, Kizanski is having an aneurysm. Ha... for many reasons I should have been able to relate to Hendrix.. but in the end.. I was not Experienced.
  16. Can you say "Jimi Hendrix" ? I went on a mission to buy his 3 ( I think) main releases... I was deteremed that I was going to like them come hell or high water. To this day, I still don't get it.
  17. Found it. Always thought it was a cool cover: The artwork is based on a photograph by Don McCullin of young rioters trying to escape from clouds of CS gas released by the British Army in Derry, 8 July 1971 during the Troubles.[1]
  18. What is this photo from? 2 very different bands have used it. Killing Joke: Smash Palace:
  19. I think I'll just stay out... even if I were back in, it would not be long before I was out again, lol.... Just call me "King"
  20. I think I may have to file for an exemption. I bought the bass to help a friend out. Matthes knows the story. It used to be mine, but it was sold yesterday for exactly what I paid for it. So I was almost acting as middle man/broker. In addition, I sold off another piece from my personal stash.... So I am currently sitting at -1 for the year. That may actually move me to the top of the leader board, eh ????? What say ye? Am I back in or what?
  21. Thanks Gus... tried to PM you, but its not going through.
  22. Gus - too funny. I had been to their website, but had not yet inquired about a price. $42 may be more than the amp is worth. Pulled out of dusty storage. I may skip on the the tank, and part the amp out. Brian - the wires to the transducers are broken. Unfortunately, they are broken inside the coil, with not enough lead to repair.
  23. small one from a Yamaha amp... Part number is: 1AB1C1A. If you have a working one, lying around, and want to sell it, let me know.
  24. I'm out. Unexpected opportunity came up to buy back something from a friend. Since I sold it to him at a realistic price, it was offered back to me for the same realistic price. Therefore, it was just to good of a deal to pass up. Oh well.
  25. Love the finish, but I've never been able to relate to the Tele shape as a bass. Perfection is a P-bass body shape... sexy.... enough said.
