  1. It's not the Hamer Forum, I'll grant you that. And I think they've been overly sensitive lately. If I want to slam somebody there, I find their e-mail and go at them that way. They, admittedly, have no "jurisdiction". Little Matte comes to mind. I did read the thread before it went "poof". Jesse's ex is a hot thief to be sure. And he's an idiot. I knew Mark (the founder of Cowtown) back when he was in Cleveland. His move to Vegas was a mistake on many levels. As for Pawn Stars, the Mary Ford guitar story is rich. People interested in "collusion" should read about it. The Pawn Stars "experts" are just that; the Pawn Star's expert. The idiot with the hat that knows everything is a boob. Anyone can educate themselves about an item before they go on camera. Bring the fat bastard in without any prep-time and I bet he knows almost nothing about the specific items on the show. Professional wrestling is more "real"...
  2. I've been writing a political column in my hometown paper for nearly two decades. I'm a real political junkie. I'd never impose upon anyone here with my political ramblings. But I liked Cokie. She had class. I didn't agree with her much, but she remained above the fray and made her point. Kind of like a rock star...
  3. I collect guitars. I collected comic books as a kid. Both took all my justifiable disposable income. I mowed yards as a kid. In Florida, that can be very lucrative. The comic collection went for 26K about fifteen years ago. All Marvel. The guitars will go one by one. I'm guessing arthritis or somebody in the band dying will trigger that purge. As a senior citizen, I'm going to collect nothing. Just run out the clock.
  4. No minor children and no wife. Nobody has standing...
  5. My point exactly. You're a very deliberate individual. Not predictable. Deliberate.
  6. I couldn't help but think, sitting at the amphitheater in Tampa, "I hope he's recording this"...
  7. I don't care what they do. I'll only ship within the Continental USA. And I'll only buy from outside the USA, if I can just have the guitar delivered to my office. CITES is a joke, if you take into account the stated and intended "benefit" to the "planet".
  8. I've used the Xvive for about two years. You can find them used every once in a while for $100. Charge lasts for about five hours and anyone that tells you about another unit being sonically better will help you spend more money for results you can't hear. But my ears are nearly 58 years old...
  9. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/DWCP3100--dw-dwcp3100-3000-series-throne Nothing DW is crap.
  10. Or he graduated from high school at thirteen or fourteen...
  11. Man, I go play golf in the afternoon and look what I missed!
  12. October 8th, 1978 at the Lakeland Civic Center. They opened for Foreigner. One of the greatest concerts I ever attended. My band's soundman was best friends with the Clair Brothers soundman on the desk. We always got to hang four feet above everybody else. He told us that the "warm up act" was great. Two of the best live sets I've ever seen. Mr. Mosely's thread about the greats dying off is especially poignant this week. Eddie Money and Ric Ocasek in the same week.
  13. There's no controlling legal authority (who said that?)!!! Curry is the only one concerned with "dibs" in this situation. He knows how to contact me...
  14. I never signed any agreement to "dibs". And the owner is under no such constraint. 😄
  15. I have a list of who gets what, when I expire...
  16. It would be tough to pick. There's this one... But I'd let her go for this one, if there could only be one...
  17. Never give anyone "dibs". If you get sick of that one, let everyone know. Fantastic...
  18. That always matters to me. I'll let you know.
  19. Pete's on video trying to be diplomatic because there's a bunch of new guitars still in the dealer's hands with the Gotoh, but he obviously prefers the new Trem...
  20. I got no "deal". No interest with twelve equal payments though...
  21. Body and neck are mahogany. Maple top. A little bit of chambering.
  22. I haven't bought a new guitar in a long time. A Gretsch a couple years ago. Robins years before from BCR. I just had to have one of these. Pete Thorn model Suhr
  23. Didn't they come through St. Louis Music as distributor? I had a couple of the Strats and they were really great guitars. The pickups were really good too. That's all I have...
