  1. Yepp, Glenn - but his playing is only second to his voice - man, what a singer!! Got everything REZ and some of his solo stuff. And a great guy! Had the privilege to meet and greet at a REZ concert in Berlin shortly after the wall came down.
  2. I heard a lot of so-called contemporary christian music in the 70's and 80's. There were quite a few string slingers that inspired me: Phil Keaggy - of course, though he's kinda semi-famous by now, and there was this sideman of Larry Norman, a guy called Jon Linn (he passed away many years ago in a car crash) who did some incredible stuff. Being a big Stones fan in the late 60's and 70's as well, Mick Taylor would make it to the list - yeah, I know, too well known...
  3. Always wondered about those weird pickups. I remember from those early GP adds that they even sold them as spares...
  4. R.I.P. Ginger. You gave rhythm to many of my days!
  5. I'm afraid to state the obvious: guitar Has been bulid by our own BCRGreg...
  6. Folks, that is an unreal amount of gear - wow !! Someone get those Mesa Maverick heads - one of the most underrated amps ever, IMHO... And then there's this gem: https://www.julienslive.com/m/lot-details/index/catalog/312/lot/122070?url=%2Fm%2Fview-auctions%2Fcatalog%2Fid%2F312%3Fpage%3D15 ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
  7. This just awesome!! Makes me think if I can recover my long gone '79 Sunburst. Black, bound and crowned, had a repaired headstock break which has been fixed with a volute, non original Grover step tuners, non original S.D. SH-1 pickups - oh well, I just give it a try...
  8. " A few of these legends might manage to live into their 90s, despite all the โ€ฆ wear and tear to which they've subjected their bodies over the decades." Keef will be one of 'em...๐Ÿ˜Ž. Wonder what he'll look like in 15 years.
  9. I did change the pot metal block on my '93 AmStd Strat for a Callaham block and the offset Callaham bent steel saddles. IMHO it did make a noticable difference for the better. I also got Callaham's '64 trem bar which was a nice upgrade as well.

    R.I.P. Eric - and make some music up there!
  11. I'm partial with the Isle of Wight festival because of Taste's performance - What's Going On live has been one of hymns of my youth... But I did listen a lot to my sister's three LP album of Woodstock. My favorite was the Allman Brother's rendition of Wipping Post.
  12. 1979, when I was 22: Brand new ('79) black Sunburst b/c and Marshall 2204 halfstack - that setup did rock!
  13. I recently replaced the vintage Fender trem on my Fender CS Strat for an ABM 5050S trem due to the narrower string spacing of the latter. Didn't expect it, but it also improved the tone quite a bit. Highly recommanded!! https://abm-guitarpartsshop.com/ABM-GUITAR-PARTS/Tremolos/Vintage-Replacement/ABM-5050-S::249.html
  14. When your grandkids start introducing you to their boyfriends!
