    Not as exciting as a new guitar, but I got new Hipshot locking tuners yesterday and put them on my Pro Jet. Pics (it did happen).

    First, the stock tuners:

    Next, the supplies:

    Finally, the finished product, with new strings on (and what a quick string change it was):

    I'm done for awhile now I think, that could change at any minute though, another amp will more then likely be my next purchase if I do get anything new.

  4. I have been looking around for a while now. As usual, i have cash from some previous sales. But when i have cash i am reluctant to spend it, but when i don’t have cash, I’m quick on the draw. Go figure. Over the past two weeks i gassed for a g5034tft , another guild, a 60’s thin line double pickup hollow body, a octave mandolin, and assorted other pieces. No trigger pulls though.

    Right now I’m just enjoying the new build, and waiting to see how crazy this world gets.

    It’s a great time to create and write SONGS.

    I've done my bit to shore up the economy. Hopefully it will be here on Tuesday.

    Thanks! I first heard of Quilter when I watched a demo by Tommy Harkenrider, and it sounded great. Seriously thinking of getting one when I start playing out again.

    I'm practicing guitar and mandolin, maybe I can get past basic beginner now? And painting and making moldings for my house. Schools just got called off until May 1st so I am also with them a lot and driving them nuts about keeping their online homework caught up. I have a thread about the SA Spectrum and the Tonewoodamp so @blueruins can pick on me a bit. Doggone Power Station 2 is back-ordered originally until March 9 then April 10 now it looks like their website says April 16th! I sure hope mines before that!

    I was all set to buy some new stuff until Corona wiped out all of my jobs so now I'm in a holding pattern for time being. I did manage to buy a Jazzmaster last month and tonight I bought a cool new drum processing plugin for the studio. It's called Transgressor 2 and it's awesome. That's all I've got for now. Still in search for toilet paper and water.

    The last thing I need to do right now is finding the cash for another guitar, so I'm thinking about selling something and making an offer for this -- two Gibson dog ears (I don't mind losing the Dearmonds) and a sparkly top. C'mon, what's not to likè? The trouble is, we're all under virtual house arrest over here.

    This XD popped in yesterday..do NOT run the line out into a Supro Black Magick....the semi scooped Fender & very mid forward BM ..how amazing they sounded together. Its hard to go back to a single amp after it. Have some amps..this might have been the best pure sound have experienced. The Supro records so well.
