    thanks for taking a look guys, I tried my hardest to whittle it down from its original 18 minutes. :) I only wished I 'd recorded it a day later when I got a hair cut. I was scheduled to see my barber but my ol' doggy died that day so I ended up w wild bush head for two more weeks.

    Wow, I never knew that... I thought they were all 2.75 until Setzer's Hot Rod.

    My sincerest condolences. Few things in life are as bad as losing as pup. Many of us have been there. :(. You'll see your pup again.

    Saw the great Anthony Bambino at Darryl's House Sunday. He killed it, played Smoke thru and Blond Bassman and Tavo's pedals. Even offered it to me to check out... Anthonyandus.jpg Anthonys Smoke.jpg

    Great review! One of the few guitars I am GASing for. Although BSSMK sounds like a confession to marketing speak. :rolleyes:

    I didn't think they could make something I wanted more than the Hot Rod or a "regular" Setzer 6120. But oh do I like this.

    Man, I've been telling people for years to drop Gotohs on their Electromatics. They really do make a good tuner, and their lockers are lighter and less bulky than a lot of the others. Nice review!

    I appreciate you all taking time to watch it, and as well Im grateful for the sentiments about my ol' Momo! The fam decided they cant go an entire year without another giant furball friend, so we put a deposit down toward the next batch of Giant Schnauzer pups to happen in October. Hope I get one this cute, although we can only afford pet grade.

    Best thing in the world, Tavo! I know some people suffer guilt, as if a new pup somehow is disrespectful to the old up. I vehemently disagree. The new pup will not lessen the grief of losing the old one, but it will add joy in-between the cracks of the sorrow.

    The wife and I lasted 2 weeks. We finally got tired of staring at each other, sighing, with tears in our eyes, and got another. Then another (we have 2 greyhounds now).

    As a dog family over here......you did the right thing. You never forget the ones who leave you, but new ones give you another chance to love another crazy wild animal that gets into everything and poops and pees on the floor until they are potty trained and eats all kinds of weird crap that you’ve told them “NO!” to a million times that results in expensive vet visits and x-rays that cost a fortune only to have the nurse tell you “you know next time you could have just given him a spoonful of hydrogen peroxide to make him throw up and avoid the big bill......now, that’ll be $425 dollars.”.

    Yep, nothing better than a hairy friend!

    That’s great news. I hope October comes quick for you all! Although that should buy you enough time to puppy proof. :)
