  1. Out of the blue here, I swapped my "bedroom guitar", from a Chinese Ibanez ASR-70 (like a Gibson ES-330, 335 shaped but hollow with P90s) for my acoustic about 2 weeks ago. It's a great sounding acoustic, but it's green and carbon fiber. I've had it about 6 months, custom ordered it on a trip to the Emerald factory in Ireland, and it still looks so bizarre to me that I have to strum the strings on it every time I walk by it just make sure it still sounds like a guitar lol. I love the sound and playability is amazing, but every once in a while I look at it and think, "What the hell was I thinking?" LOL

  2. I used to listen to Pandora, I found that a great way to hear new (to me, anyway) bands that were along the same lines of bands I knew I already liked. I found 'Shonen Knife' that way, 'Symphony X', and even 'The Rashid Ali Quintet'. I don't remember if I found Jimmy Bruno that way, but maybe....Definitely worth a check if you have a hankering for some stuff you don't know already by heart :)

  3. Frank Falbo is no longer with SD, he has Falbo guitars and is working on a new pickup company called Flux.

    My thought was that if Frank was still with Duncan, he might be interested in getting on board early. I wasn't aware he had gone back to Falbo Guitars (I have a Falbo preamp in one of my 7 strings) but that it would be easier to see what Duncan's got than to start from scratch.

  4. When do I get to make a promo/commercial that will make Jol and other boutique custom shops completely green with envy?

    Maybe we can do a small fund raiser to get enough funds to schlep me to Conneticut?

    If Mike puts Duncan pups in his guitars, I can surely get some Facebook cross promotion going with the Duncan page.

    If ever there is a moment where my talents and abilities are needed... this moment is surely one of them.

    Geoff:

    Right now, Mike is working out the custom pickup concept and basic supplier. Obviously, that will be based not only on his vision/hearing and customer inquiry, but also by whatever makes economic sense for him as a builder. I wouldn't rule anything out at this stage, but having you do a video (or videos) would definitely be a cool thing to add as a site feature!

    Couldn't hurt to give Frank Falbo a ring at Duncan, Frank's a great guy.

  5. This is awesome news and congrats to Mike! I wish I had time to check out his new site but I have to go to work. Imaging reading this and then having to wait 10 hours for the details. Yeah, that's my day.

    Exactly the situation I am in now :(

    EDIT: Just read the bit about maybe 25, so I just need...another 9 hours to get home :) I can't even get to his site from work.
