  1. I totally missed that guitar when I watched the show.
  2. I might have bought one for that price. I still own an Crate Power Block which does basically the same thing (Less Features) and has Direct Out. We definitely live in the age of wonderful guitar gadgets. Something I'd be more interested in is something along the lines of the Seymour Duncan Diamond Head, and more specifically the Strymon Iridium.
  3. That's too bad. Years back I came across D 'Addario 15/85 acoustic strings. They eventually became hard to find. I then found 15/85's made my Dean Markley. At the moment and probably for the next 5 to 10 years i'm stocked up on 15/85's. It will be interesting to see who is selling them when I do need to order them again.
  4. Send your old Fender's to me. People hate them, I'll play thick ploy finish 90"s and 00's Fender's all day. I like the plain jane American Standard pickups with the plastic bobbins. I've tried nearly every upgrade Strat pickup Fender makes and the American Standard's are still my favorite. The neck profile on the 90's Strat Plus is my favorite Fender neck. It's just a hair thicker than a regular "C" shaped neck. Parts are also in abundance for these guitars. What's not to like. I currently have Fender Fat 50's in the white Strat. I don't know how Fender (or any other company) can make a profit selling new guitars when the market is flooded with their used guitars. There is nothing Fender offers right now I'm interested in. Well, maybe an offset Telecaster. If I was Fender I'd look into a model with SS frets. What else can you improve, a Strat is a Strat and a Tele is a Tele.
  5. This is the first I've heard of White Reaper. They sound good. So did REO Speedwagon 40 years ago.
  6. I've never played or handled a Red Wood top guitar nor am I a wood expert. A Janka rating as high as 480 seems soft IMO. I suppose it does not hurt the guitar being most the body is mahogany. I would think it would dent easy? In addition I would also think it would have a darker tone. Someone enlighten me... https://www.precisebits.com/reference/relative_hardness_table.htm
  7. It'll be interesting to see if someone buys it. I don't care for the body scheme without the signatures. I'd have to refinish it all white. But at $4000 what's the point. Currently on HFC there's a red flamed maple Standard with matching head stock for $3300. If I was looking for a Standard the choice would be a no brainer.
  8. I'd like to own those Milkman amps on the first page. I don't know what this is.
  9. Wow! Maybe I'm crazy, but if I was in the market for a Studio I'd grab that.
  10. https://www.npr.org/2019/09/03/757100498/elvis-guitarist-james-burton Growing up I was not an Elvis fan and I did not know who James Burton was. It wasn't until Fender released the 3 pickup James Burton Telecaster I realized who he was. It was my loss, because I really appreciate his playing now.
  11. I really like the DD pickups. I cringe when I see Tally's missing the DD pickups. I can't speak for the pickups in the Talladega Pro.
  12. I understand sales tax to the point that if I make a purchase in my state, my state gets a cut of that purchase. What I don't understand is how can my state can collect sales tax on something I purchase out of state? Wyoming does not call this Sales Tax, they use the term "Use Tax". In my mind my sales tax should go to the state where I made the purchase not my state. My state did nothing to facilitate or help commerce in the state where the sale was made. To a point I don't mind paying tax as I think roads, sidewalks, parks, police, emergency services, state radio, national weather service, and military are a good thing. However the level of government services I want is probably not to the level or same batch of things that someone else wants (Conservative vs Liberal, or Republican vs Democrat). I guess at the end of the day the governments view is tax every income, transaction, license, lodging, driving, eating, drinking, smoking, walking, talking, and dying at every possible angle. All I can say is just pay your tax, or start going to your city council, school board, and state public forum meetings and let your voice be heard.
  13. I think I watched this documentary on Netflix a while back. It's been a while but I think Alice Cooper says his hired guns have to look cool, be tolerable to live with, and be A players. I highly recommend the full documentary. In summary "It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll". She's probably only missing one requirement. I'm missing all three.
