  1. This one was always amazing to me. What a collection of talent!
  2. The statistical data shows the first rounds of stimulus went largely to paying down debt and to savings (in that order). It could be this round gets the “mad money” treatment and we see buying sprees from pent up demand.
  3. Three. Lots of cool insights in Ted Templeman’s bio, as well. Lowell George is a recurring character.
  4. No, this was much earlier even than the Schon LP prototype. It was an extremely thin body with a belly contour and offered in 80’s colors: https://reverb.com/item/34891030-gibson-les-paul-custom-lite-1988-metallic-pink?utm_source=rev-ios-app&utm_medium=ios-share&utm_campaign=listing&utm_content=34891030
  5. Reminds me of the Les Paul Lite they put out in the 80's. I believe I remember those even having a Floyd option (or maybe they all had them). The wrap would have been better, but I am certain you couldn't have convinced any of us of that in 1988.
  6. Perhaps I should have been more clear. There has been speculation for some time about the status of Lovepedal. Sean posted on Instagram, yesterday, that he might have some “leftovers” and hinted around that there might be a SNS sale this weekend. This was his first post in more than a year. That was all I was getting at / reporting.
  7. I'm pretty sure that was an optional marker configuration. I've seen a few of those through the years (here, of course).
  8. ¿Cuanta? Also, a bound Blitz with a gold sustain block? Absolutely killer! ETAA: that case tho! ETAAA: Duh! Reverb auction imbedded in the photo (sorry, I missed the tell-tale arrows because I was gawking at that case!) Good grief that thing is pristine. I can only see a few scuffs around the back of the upper bass bout. The headstock even appears clean.
  9. My favorite guitar store anywhere! Walk in there and try not to play a guitar. I dare you. Really just the best sort of people. Love that bass:
  10. Needed somewhere to post this and this thread seemed to be close enough: Lovepedal posted on their Instagram account 15 hours ago - first time since January 2020. https://www.instagram.com/p/CMdvsZ1l1Es/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link Hope? The Lovepedal site still returns a SQL error. ETA: Ah, but the Shopify site is up and running as in the old SNS days!
  11. If it is any consolation, I much prefer the finish on yours.
  12. Neighbor had one of those when I was growing up. Amazing what time will do for the desirability of some things. Nobody wanted three-bolt Strats back then, either.
  13. Plus having to pull it off most every night with half the crowd (or more) booing every solo because you're not Randy. Randy was cutting edge, so learning his solos would have been exploring a whole new world of technique and musical ideas.
  14. My mistake. eBay was Big-Brother-tracking me and missed by about 50 miles. What I was seeing was eBay‘s guess of a ship-TO. I’m nowhere near Brooklyn.
  15. That the base plate surrounds the trem points is odd. There is the Wilkinson WVP2 that is built like that, but the bar insertion point is completely different (add to that your example's insertion point is tension-able). ETA: now that I see the pictures on the same page, that is completely different - the Wilki has the surround for the bridge pieces like the Mannmade.
  16. Yeah, I'm just not going to click on the link again. It is in the town where my wife works - too easy to accidentally acquire!
  17. We might want to hold off spending any surplus cash as the same site had this auction coming up:
  18. Didn't see any guns or camo, but lots of interesting items, some still reasonably priced. Auction
  19. Tantamount to FOB shipping point: i.e., it's yours the second it leaves here.
  20. In the late 80's the Nashville pawn shops had stacks of those. Cheap.
  21. The Kiz’ Senior has needed the scratchy neck volume knob replaced since before I bought it. Could have something to do with the one meeelion different pickups it’s had in it! I just keep playing it.
  22. Wow, that’s beautiful, reasonably priced and uncomfortably close to me! 😂
  23. There are some, interestingly, Matthes-designed, instances where an exception is universally supported, e.g.,
  24. Kind of like seeing a vintage Corvette on a questionable used car lot. “How cool, but how did it wind up THERE?”
  25. Same thing as the last time one of these lists came up (2019? 2020?): Yamaha MODX. I can't decide on the 61-key or the 76-key and am too ignorant to know why I would choose one over the other, other than maybe portability. I had too many guitars as it was and then bought a Lester last year (after 40 years of torturing guitars while purposefully staying away from them, I'm totally sold on the Lester concept - it works for dang near anything). I'm playing zero guitar outside the house (for years now). Time to really learn synth and the MODX bang-for-buck remains off the charts.
