  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.


    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.
