Share Button

The wall of Peavey is complete. From left to right: 1984 Fury – My most recent acquisition. Ash body, maple neck. First gen was old T-20 renamed. Second gen became a true P type bass. I accidentaly bought it in Reno last week, and after tuning it up a bit, I’m falling deeply in love […]

Goodbye To A Friend… A Bass Type Friend!

Aldo II is gone…  Sold to a guy up north. It’s a sacrifice that had to be made for both the tax man, and for the new business. zi’m certain there will be more sacrifices to be made in the future.

Is The Electric Guitar Dead?????

Share Button

I was reading a review of the new Bowie album, and came across this quote: It’s also probably worth noting that the four-piece rock band itself, and especially the electric guitar — that bastion and symbol of late-sixties rebellion — has grown long in the tooth. It’s been nearly 50 years since Hendrix, and though […]

Reluctant GAS – Gear Acquisition Syndrome!

Share Button

I’ve been trying to sell my big bass rig for over a month, and it wasn’t moving at all. If all the components were new, it would have gone for $800 at least. I was trying to sell it for $400, but I had no takers. Then, out of the blue, a guy offered trade […]

Adventures In Song Writing And 12 Strings!

  I played yet another open mic all by my lonesome self on Monday night. I did pretty well, all things considered. I’m finally losing the bit of nervousness I wrote about previously, partly because I’m getting better on guitar, and partly because I’m getting used to being on stage solo, with no band to […]

Strat Guitar Wiring

Share Button

I’ve been having a problem with my bridge pick-up. From all appearances, it’s a Seymour Duncan Duckbuckers SDBR-1. It doesn’t make a sound when in switch position 5. I’ve had the problem before, and I’m certain it’s a wiring issue, not a dead PU. This has been a recurring problem. The last time I took […]

Basses.

Here is my wonderful black Peavey Dyna-Bass 5’er I call Aldo II, along side most hideous bass in the world, the barely P-Bass Spider Queen, complete with frets pulled out.   And yes, for all you Linux freaks like me, that is a Gnome Desktop strap!!! PS. Aldo I, a black Dyna 4 string I […]

Name It!

OK. This is my little studio, such as it is, where most of my little solo album thingy is being recorded. But, I just realized, all studio’s are named! The Beatles had Abbey Road…. Elvis used Sun Studios… Hendrix, the Record Plant Genesis recorded at Hit and Run… My studio doesn’t have a name…. What […]
