    Your Thoughts On Guitar Shows

    Like Lou & Baba Joe, I had been a "regular" at Philly Guitar Shows, prior to the pandemic, at various locations over the years. I mostly enjoyed looking, but occasionally made some "low dollar" purchases -- including Ed Balls' "Gretsch 6120 -- The History of a Legendary Guitar". Like Baba Joe...

    Notable Guitarist Quotes

    After listening to Chet Atkins play, a commenter said (i.e,) ".... That guitar sounds beautiful". Chet then removed the guitar and leaned it against a chair and said, "How does it sound now?"

    Who likes a wound 3rd string?

    I use wound G's exclusively. Tried plain G's a few times and just did not like them..... Choice #1 for me is Thomastik-Infeld's JS110 flat wound.

    PRRI vs DRRI vs Vibro Champ vs '57 Custom Champ

    Depending on your budget, take a look at DeLisle amps. I've had a Double Nickel Box (about 10 watts) for a few years and love it. 12" speaker, with the optional Variodyne control It produces full sounds/tones at bedroom volumes. If I had it to do over, I probably would have selected his Nickel...

    Buy a Broadcaster, replace the pickups?

    I have a Broadkaster Jr 6659-TG (bought 4/17). Love the guitar but never bonded with the Broadtron pickups. I finally replaced them with TV Jones Super Tron (neck) and Classic Plus (bridge), MAJOR IMPROVEMENT (IMO). I wish I had done the change sooner,,,,,,,,

    Opinions on Gretsches with a 1.75" nut width

    I prefer the wider necks of my 6122-59 and my Martin D42. I have fairly large hands (XL gloves) and I play "finger style" guitar.......

    What movie/s scared the heck out of you when you were little?

    DIABOLIQUE -- the original French version (B & W) with English subtitles. It gave me nightmares for at least 2 nights.............

    Congratulations -- you had an excellent day at the show!! Historically, the November Philly show is bigger and better than the Summer show...... Between the pandemic and "other stuff" this summer, I have not attended Philly shows for about 3 years.... I hope to make it to the November show.....

    That one pedal...

    My "ONE" pedal would be a Strymon that combines the reverb and basic delay from the El Capistan. Maybe I should be talking to the guy from Sandy Eggo...... I have his Nocturne Dyno Brain, which I consider a "Must". However I don't consider it to be an effect -- it ENHANCES sound, it does...

    Want to see Springsteen live? $4400.

    The average price for a ticket for the 2021 Super Bowl was $8,524. Cheapest seats were $4,799. For some reason there are enough people willing to part with insane amounts of money that "vendors" continue to succeed in these ventures.......

    Story of Guitar Center

    Wildwood Guitars (Louisville, CO) is another excellent place. My favorite dealer -- for a couple of decades -- has been Dtown Guitars (Doylestown, PA). One-shop, "Mom & Pop" (actually, only "Pop") and a reasonable drive for me. Great inventory -- lots of Gretsch & Martin products -- good...
