    Oh it’s be much worse if it had “EHX” or “www.EHX.com”, then it’d be a late build from Ch-aye-nah

    Not sure if “guitar related” enough but just got a new psichedelic tee. I wear them to rehearsals and every other gig. This one will have to wait until band practice and jams are on again...

    Picked up a breadboard kit that comes with transistors, resistors, caps, jumper wires, a power supply and some other stuff, and some extra breadboards, a bunch of 2n2222a transistors, and some BC109C transistors for a fuzz face build I'm gonna try on the breadboard. Picked up some 1.14mm blue Dunlop Gator Grip picks, also. Seems I prefer their size to the larger standard picks and the smaller Jazz picks. They seem to fit right between those 2.

    I actually wore out my favorite V-pick, a glow in the dark Traditional Lite. Since I have no idea where the rest of them are, I picked up a half dozen Traditional Lite in blue, since the glow in the dark is no more ( have about 4 more of them somewhere )

    been selling guitars, think it was a side effect of my Covid vax shot. Got my second yesterday. Afraid I'll be selling everything and become a non-musical drone.

    Why don't you turn off the light and look for them?

    Not sure if it counts if you sell a guitar, and use the money for a different toy.
    I sold my 70's re-issue strat, and bought a new Glock 34. I've been shooting real calibers for years, but the arthritis in my hands is beginning to affect my shooting. I'll try 9mm for a while, and see if I can't hold the younger guys off for a few more years!

    I have very small hands (I've said this before. Repeatedly), so the "micro" 9mm feels best to me. When I got a SIG P365, it was game over, man. That gun is the schizz!

    Some folks don't like the Glock grip, but I've always got along, (as do my girls). I generally add the Hogue grip sleeve which I like over the standard texture that comes on the gen 2 and 3 guns.
    My problem is my support hand thumb, it just kills me trying to keep the gun aligned when shooting fast. Just playing with the new one Saturday, (even before I've fixed the trigger), the lighter caliber is sure telling!

    Congrats, Kenny!!!! I love Martins, own two. Yours looks amazing.

    Is this one of the vintage reissues? My HD-28V from 96 is a pre-WWII reissue.

    I picked up a Shield 9mm about 2 years ago - got a GREAT deal and it is a fantastic small carry. generally, I can shoot a little bit, but not plugging a quarter out of the air with it. I also picked up a 365 last year. It is an EXCELLENT one as well. I really like the way it feels and its sights are on for me. I bought it used with about 100 rds through it. 2 extra 10 rd mags and it was a very good deal. Its tough to say which one I would keep if I could only have one. I think the advantage would go to the sig for extra capacity.

    Thanks - I am going to say I don't think so. Its a 2017 and thats about all I know. I have more play hours on it than the previous owner at this point.

    It is going in for a Fishman Matrix install soon. its a great pickup - and if I go to sell it at some point, I know enough players are out there that would prefer it installed already.

    I'm not too concerned when keeping things stock if the playing experience is better for you for any reason. But congrats. It's a beautiful guitar.

    Another set of Elixir 12-53 Phosphor Bronzew Nanoweb strings. I just replaced the set on my Taylor BBT-e and then noticed the set on my GS Mini were looking a little grotty.

    I have been using those too. I really prefer the polyweb but they are hard to get right now.

    Another PET-1 guitar humidifier from ProLix. Of all the in-guitar (acoustic) humidifiers I've tried, I like this one best. Easy (soak for 20 minutes, let air dry for 10, wipe and insert), lasts longer, doesn't need to be removed in order to play, doesn't require distilled water, and made in the USA. Patent Pending and lifetime guarantee!

    (I misplaced my previous one, so I got this one in red to differentiate it when I finally locate my first).

    I just received a new Crowther Hot Cake. Oddly, the baseplate is missing three screws! Only the screw in the masked off hole was included. It's clear that the other three countersunk holes have never had a screw in them.

    Otherwise, it's a nice sounding pedal!

    while I was in the Comcast store setting up the new house internet service, my phone rang and it was Sweetwater. I let it go to voicemail because I was busy.

    "Your guitar is in, do you still want it?"

    Guitar? Oh, yeah, the Epiphone Jared James Nichols Gold Glory. I thought it wasn't going to be in until August. Crap. I just spent a shit ton of money. I had put the order in before we even knew about this house. But if I canceled the order, I'd go to the back of the line and there's a very good chance the run would be sold out. I decided to not risk it and took it anyway. I was planning on selling a couple/three more guitars anyway, just that I don't have the time for the next few weeks or so.

    Worst comes to worse, I can always sell it if I have to but I'd really like to have a P-90 guitar in my toolbox.

    I've been curious about Stringjoy strings, and since I'm going on vacation soon, thought I'd buy some strings and spend some time getting a couple of my guitars freshened up. While I was specifying the strings, I also saw they offered a "natural string conditioner," so I said what the heck, and bought a bottle and a microfiber cloth (on sale).
