    Saving Old Concert Ticket Stubs

    I think this is the first one I saved (my second show - first one being the Stray Cats). U2 in Detroit 1983 (War album tour). Smaller theater, before they grew to only playing stadiums. Price $10.50, and my friend and I made our way right up front next to the stage. We could feel Bono’s spit...

    Factory-Installed Grover Sta-Tites on some ‘57 6120s?

    I can’t speak for others, but I prefer my vintage guitars to be all (or mostly) original. I even put originality over condition. I don’t mind if an old guitar shows its age, as long as it hasn’t been modded. Now, I’m not gigging out anymore, so I don’t mind that the original Waverly tuners on...

    Saving Old Concert Ticket Stubs

    Nice, you actually framed some. Mine are all in a shoebox. And to think, in the 80s a ticket was $10 to $15 bucks. Today some venues charge more than that just for parking.

    Remember the days when you actually got a physical concert ticket and not some scan code on your phone? Anyone else saved old concert ticket stubs? I have a stack of them.

    Factory-Installed Grover Sta-Tites on some ‘57 6120s?

    I’m now realizing this after almost 40 years of owning my Guild with Sta-Tites (bought it as a teenager in 1984). I remember doing 3-hour gigs years ago and never once had to stop to retune. I just thought all guitars were that way. Until I bought an old Harmony with cheap tuners. That guitar...

    Nice! They were standard on many Guilds, here’s my ‘64 Starfire III. They’re great tuners, never had a problem with them.
