    R.I.P. Hank Aaron

    I went and checked to see what I could find and it's true that he received some written death threats should he go on to break the record. However, other than a few nut cases he was widely supported by fans across the nation. But I'm sure you can find a way to turn it into a race thing if you...

    R.I.P. Hank Aaron

    Oakland was great in those days! Being down south it was all Dodgers and Angels for us...saw Nolan Ryan pitch as a rookie.

    R.I.P. Hank Aaron

    That's odd. It's been well over forty years since he broke Babes record so I could be mistaken but I don't recall hearing any racist "vitriol" when he arrived at 715. I was an avid fan of the MLB and of Hank...I remember wide acceptance and excitement in general...I know my buddies and I were...

    R.I.P. Hank Aaron

    I saw him at Padre Stadium...saw him hit one out there. It was late in his career. Simpler times...didn't have a care in the world. I miss 'em!

    I would say you are right...they probably have an exclusive on them at least for the moment.

    I totally agree. I like them better than any Fender pups I've ever been around. I'm sorry to tell you they will remain with me. I have a couple of friends who really want them as well...but I won't do it.

    You know...when I got the guitar I discovered that the CS Mike Lewis "Sweet 64's" were better than I thought they would be. They are under wound, which I like, we'll balanced and do every thing that they should do very well. Had I not been exposed to the Tone Specific pups I would have left them...

    Interesting?

    We buy most of our meat and many vegetables from local farmers. I get it on the price...It appears all the fast food places have raised prices a good bit while covid has increased demand. For us it's the principal of the thing. Rather eat at home and support the local guys. So, given its...

    Speaking of NFL football

    The Bills are peaking at the right time...the Chiefs are very deep and Mahomes seems to be the new standard for greatness at QB. Two very well coached, excellent teams. So...it comes down who stays healthy, turn overs and likely special teams play. I'd give the Chiefs the nod for playing at home.

    I have to give a Strat back to its owner, now what?

    I happy to lend equipment, but it's a very small club, and because it is...there are no issues.

    Getting a Mesa...Can't decide which

    As long as you are shopping MB...I would also recommend you check the Fillmore series...they come in 25, 50 and 100W. I recently bought one and am floored. Fender style amp on steroids...really, no joke. SW allows you to make the cosmetic desicions...tolex or leather, plain or pattern, color...

    Awesome guitars from my past that I wish I had kept :(

    Man oh man...would love to have that Melody Maker in RH.

    Ash or swamp ash ...

    Totally agree...I simply prefer bodies classified as "swamp ash" because if they really are southern (prefer that terms because often stands of southern ash are either seasonally flooded or once in a blue moon retrieved from immersion in water) they tend to be light, which I prefer. It has been...

    Ash or swamp ash ...

    I've read that the amount of time the tree spends in water has everything to do with the per cubic foot weight, or overall density...at least to a point. Grain also affects the resonance of the wood. I chose the specific guitar below because the grain flows in a fairly symmetrical fashion up...
