  1. When I was actively building Eurorack modules (COVID hobbies, eh?), I invested in a vacuum desoldering gun gizmo. Saved me a ton of time, and the aloe plant grew bigger. Desoldering a bunch of microscopic SMT crap is a PITA. Worked a charm on through hole, too.
  2. Yeah man! The blue Z3 has rosewood, which I have deluded myself in to believing softens some of the hi-fi sharpness of the Zcoils. I mean, if I could even play the damned thing.
  3. I shouldn't have looked. I think I want with this: https://davesguitar.com/products/gl/asat-classic-15/ It'll pair nicely with the blue bassboat flake ASAT Z3 with MOTS pickguard I have.
  4. I don't know if there's a consensus on what guitarists need to think about when buying an amp. But, I'll tell you what I'm usually thinking when I buy a new amp: "Did I start with two fingers of scotch or three on this one?"
  5. Every time I pick up a guitar, the fingers of my fretting hand magically form, in order of likelihood, an open E, G or C (but never an A or D). When I see posed pictures of people holding guitars and not fingering an open E, G or C, I sometimes wonder, "What does that...sound like?" In Henry's case, keep in mind he envisioned Gibson only as a "lifestyle brand", a la H-D, from which he could extract a fortune. And that's where I'll stop. Also, when does the comma go inside the quotes and when doesn't it? I've always put it inside when it was an actual quote of something said, but outside when it's used, as here, only to convey a certain snarkiness. I hope I haven't been going around all these years executing the literary equivalent of an Em/F#(add)sorta, y'know?
  6. I can type with above average accuracy? Dunno.

  7. There is no talking to him. He's fond of saying, "There are two types of people in this world. Avoid them both." Not sure what you mean about words changing. You mean when people mis-type "Gibson"? Never happened to me. Nuh-uh.
  8. Probably. I strongly suspect that, a lot of the time, he does things with no understanding of expected outcomes. Like, he probably didn't even fully read the page that says "hey, we're going to upgrade your board to this nifty new accomplishments/awards system, are you sure" until after he pushed the "Yes" button.
  9. I occasionally think I'd like an H-525. But, then I think I can't really do it justice, so why? That one Randy has (or had) was beautiful. The "2" wouldn't bother me in the least, especially as it's only "finish flaws." Nice looking guitar, Brent! Also, when it's time to trade it off, I still have that Amish dining room set...just sayin'.
  10. Reminds me of a funny exchange when I was much (much) younger. My grandmother responded, rather curtly, to something one of my aunts had said with, "You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar." Common phrase, nothing funny about it. My grandfather, however, added from the other room, "But if you want to catch them all, just use shit." I think moments and memories like that one contributed significantly to who I am today.
  11. Telecasters truly are the Swiss Army knife of guitars. Used for everything from blues to jazz to reggae to rock 'n roll to pop to country to you name it. That Tokai is a real looker, too. Good luck with the band and gigs! I <3 gig reports, so I'm hoping you post a few.
  12. I laughed at the punch line. Sucked me in on that one! Glad you had a good time. It is amusing to hear my sons and their friends talk about songs that have been re-released as covers as if they're the original. I can't imagine playing in a band with that sort of disconnect.
  13. Welcome to the Club! Good luck with your search for a lefty 535/55; hope you score The One. Where in WV are you from? When we head down that way, we try to plan things so we can hit Tricky Fish in Charleston for a late lunch/early dinner; fun little joint.
  14. I've always told my boys, "Believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see."

  16. Wow, I've really been slacking in the "welcoming new members" department. So, to all of you...Welcome to The Club! And, the obligatory:
  17. Wow, looks like I've missed a fair few new members! Welcome to the Club, everyone! Some great looking guitars posted here (as always)...that H-357 is uber-cool. I'm excited to see another H-160V..you have the twin to mine Buzzel. Well, paternal twins, as your single coils look different than the stock Schallers in mine.
  18. Dang...a lot of new members here! I've really been slacking off in keeping up with this thread. So... To all the new members...Welcome to The Club! Speaking of the growing membership base, when I was talking to Ren this afternoon, he was surprised that we were up around 1400 members already. The guys and gals at the factory sure think highly of you folks!
  19. It looks like one that Brentrocks used to have. Then again, which Heritage doesn't? Ba-dum-bum.....crash! Thank you! I'll be here all week!!
  20. Welcome to the Club, BLS! I'm a Michigander (transplanted Golden Gopher, tho) myself; there are more than a couple of us here. That's a great looking guitar; looks familiar...did you buy it from a member here?
