    Dodgy deals

    Yesterday I responded to an ad on FBMP for a hardshell case for an acoustic guitar. It showed all necessary measurements and showed well in the photo. Advertised as "Used in New Condition", Well the used part was accurate but certainly not in new condition or even close. The hardware was...

    Roy Clark was funny

    Wow! Absolutely fantastic. No wonder the boys are watching in awe. I was always a fan but hadn't seen this before. Thanks for sharing.
