  1. Well, the weather is changing now, so to be putting out the winter clothes. I don't really like the winters here, much too long. Keep the stove on till May sometimes.

  2. Old fender amps

    Like to see 3 pictures of it including the speaker used in it.
  3. Xin con goi ten nhau - Guitar Solo

    Nicely played. Can get the feeling it would end up in a kung fu movie at the final fighting scene of a love affair being slowly tortured with emotions being the kung fu kick that does the evil turkey in.
  4. My new model Gibson Les Paul Studio , Modern weight relief model. OK, let me give you a little break down on my new Les Paul Studio. It has a body, "a very sexy one actually" made with and it’s design of Mahogany, but they say it is "Modern" weight relief. BS. Sucker ain't light at all. Got to sit down and play this baby. The top is of maple wood "American" grown, hmm...? Also, this hasn’t changed since day 1. I just thought I’d throw this in for laughs since we all know where the Gibson cases are made in, right. Well, if you don't know, ask around. Hint, not in America. Now, let me say something about the fine and easy to play fingerboard with Trapezoid Inlays, dang, what the heck is that. OK, I just threw that in to keep your attention on this post. If you need to, get yourself another cup of coffee, or if like me, another beer. Yes, the fingerboard, well it turns out to be "Granadillo". Yikes, a new word in my vocabulary. The "Granadillo" wood has a slight reddish look to it. And beautiful to look at. OK, so what. How does it feel while them finger tips are dancing all over it? Man, Gibson scored a "BIG" ten on this one. One of the finest fretboards I feel that Gibson has added to its collection of the Les Paul. It took a little of getting used to, but really its a very easy to play over fretboard. OK, now get let's down to business, Gibson business that is. The hardware: Chrome Tune-o-Matic, hmm... sounds a bit of history there. OK, cool with me. The vintage style Tuners, well, what happens if your grandfather isn't with you and you ask, what the heck are them.... Hey, man, now it's time to get down and boogie on the electronics, you know the pickups. OK, it’s packed with the 490/498T, Push/Pull Coil Taps. Sorry guys on this one, just don't have lowdown on this tech stuff, but it’s like single coil and the hums that one can switch on and off too. Pretty cool, but a bit confusing to figure out in the beginning, heck even the sales person didn’t know which one is which. Hey Gibson, what happen on the treble, lacks the punch, sorry, but that is how my ears hear it. Maybe if I had a Marshall amp, it might be different, but actually on my Vox Pathfinder 10, I do like the more bassy tone that these pickups deliver. A real mellow and rich tone to my ears. OK, let's move on to the plastics: My first thought was, "Chinese made", like what company in America wants to stay in business making these, let’s say 100, for maybe 20 cents. OK, maybe I'm pushing it, but.. they’re a bit flimsy. The speed Knobs, wow, nice name, right! So 21st century lingo here. I give them a well balance passing on them, not bad at all. I like the feel of them and they are “black”. OK, now the case, yep, made in Canada, hey man, where is our man "Trump" now. Overall, a workhorse of a fine guitar. Gibson gets a 10 on this one. Hey, Gibson, if you are reading this, I'm in Japan where I bought it. Please send me a set of Gibson strings, I can’t afford them now.

  7. Obstinato - Neo Classical Fusion

  8. Brought back some memories, that's for sure. Like you, I kind of quit watching TV when I was in 7th grade. Too stupid bs on tv theses days and years ago also. Nice take on it. Enjoyed listening.
  9. a little write-up on my new electric guitar

    Well, I had a good 64 years of good health, but , boy does this shit hurt like heck. Going on the 3rd week today. Taking 4 りりか a day for the pain, but it helps, but I don't like to take drugs and this drug has a lot of side effects. Yes, I dare not stand up and play this les paul, you are right about that.
  10. Mediterranean Woman - Smooth Jazz Music

    Like how you let them fingers float gently over the fretboard.
