    NGD, P90's!

    Congratulations. Great guitar. This was the instrument that started me collecting guitars about 2009. I still have it and cherish it. Over the years I replaced the pickups although the originals were pretty good and PLEK'd the neck since it will be with me to the end.

    Who has a "large" collection of guitars?

    I wanted to hit 100 and I did so now I'm selling a bunch over the next few years. I pretty much know which ones I love and which ones I can live without. Lately, I've been indulging an Ernie Ball Music Man fetish. Like proline Gretschs, they are beautifully made guitars.

    Who has a "large" collection of guitars?

    I reached 100 a few months ago but then sold two, so I'm at 98.

    What to use for lube

    Roy, try the Dove bar soap. After Ian Weston suggested it I tried it and it does work. Zero mess too.

    Don Wilson of the Ventures

    One of those giants that moved the guitar from a background instrument to a lead instrument. Thank you, Don. Rest in peace.

    What to use for lube

    My luthier recommends Dove bar soap - 1/4 moisturizing cream! It actually seems to work pretty well with a light rub.

    Ya, I owned an Agave Blue Am Strat several years ago and traded it away. I regret it. Congrats Glen. Great guitar.

    Milkman The AMP

    I've only heard one - a Milkman Creamer - and it was exquisite. It should have been for the price but it achieved its objective of being a great-sounding high-end amp.

    Should I feel bad?

    My wife and I just exchange something little. She gave me two Terry's Chocolate Oranges and a package of Licorice All Sorts. I gave her $4000 so she could go away with her sister on a two month vacation to South Carolina. She left today. Guess which one of us got the gift?

    55 Years Ago, Yesterday.....

    1964 for me. I was 9 years old and my dad bought a Kent Polaris 1 (3/4 size) for me. I played it till my fingers bled (as the song says) and I still have it to this day. All the finish was sanded off but it still plays pretty good and sounds surprisingly excellent.

    Forget 'desert island' let's talk 'grave'..

    For sure. You won't care. My son told me he was going to send me off with my old 1973 Strat. I said, "If you wreck that guitar like that I will come back and haunt you the rest of your life. Keep it, play it and pass it down to your kids." Besides, if you get to take stuff with you I want a...

    NGC soon to come

    Congrats Jeffrey! Of all my Gretsch guitars, my 6118T Double Green Anni is my number one, but my 5129 is my number two. It's an awesome sounding, awesome playing guitar. Get a good setup for it and you have an absolute winner! Can you tell that I like mine?

    Ever had the police called on your band for being to loud?

    Yep. Me too. Gigged an outdoor wedding back in September in the middle of a residential subdivision. I waited the whole gig for the police to show and they came about an hour after we quit to tell the karaoke dude to knock it off. Perfect.

    Get Back - Going to Watch?

    I finished it yesterday. It was remarkable. All four were incredibly gifted and you could see it in Billy Preston's eyes. He was awestruck. Me too.
