  1. I boiled a set of round wounds. It did bring the brightness back a bit. But I was playing a lot of bass at that point and they'ed gotten funk filled.
  2. Actually...I guess I have to correct myself. I checked my profile and I joined in Feb 2013. I really was just putting my foot in the water here. I was a noob to forums at the time. I lurked a lot then, I lurk a lot now. I have become aware of the social situations you allude to though. Not in this particular HC forum though.
  3. I wasn't here in 2013, so this thread has no relevance for me.
  4. Just caught this review Phil. They sound great. After watching and listening to some YouTube demos of them I'm wishing I had some in my 2016 Epi 339.
  5. His stage rig at his apex was 8 Fender Twins....Dimed.
  6. he got a great sound out of them. Wonder why he switched to Strat types? He went from stacked Fender twins to Marshall's too. Of course by then his hitmaker days were over and he went to being a right wing gun nut. But he was always one I think.
  7. I think everybody learned how to play it as well😁
  8. That's beautiful man! The first good electric I had was a Musicmaster "1". My buddies in High school all knew me as a Bass guy. When I plugged in the MM and just let fly...They were all..!!! "We didn't know you could play lead!!!". Guess a Kustom bass amp wasn't a bad match on a MM.
  9. I remember putting a 8 track into my '70 Bug. No mean feat at the time. First tape I bought was CSN&Y's "Deja Vu". Twas very cool back then. Don't remember any others I bought after that...
  10. Arguably the most famous Harmony guitar https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2Fj7b16bVdLaI%2Fhqdefault.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dj7b16bVdLaI&docid=giMSJI4EALYftM&tbnid=1mRcPE6twq4HWM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwjoqN3yiMDlAhWPrVkKHSRgCPEQMwhcKAowCg..i&w=480&h=360&hl=en&authuser=0&bih=937&biw=1920&q=jj cales harmony&ved=0ahUKEwjoqN3yiMDlAhWPrVkKHSRgCPEQMwhcKAowCg&iact=mrc&uact=8
  11. My first guitar was a cheap gut string acoustic that just said "Classic" across the peghead. My folks paid $12 for it. But I learned "Day Tripper", Mr. Tambourine Man, a few others. Then I got a paper route. A "Shinko" electric at T,G &Y for $50. It was a poorly executed copy of a Jazzmaster. Terrible action. I knew nothing about electrics other than I could not afford anything better. A couple of months later, I bought a Airline amp from Montgomery Ward. 8 watts. A year later, I bought a Silvertone bass, made by Danelectro. Wish I still had it.
  12. It was a interesting and informative article. Can't picture Buddy with anything but a Strat. Really kind of floored he started out on a Gibby myself. Leave it to Good 'Ol Phil to find us a chestnut like this to chew on!
  13. Simply brilliant interview with a simply brilliant man who also happens to be a simply brilliant guitarist!
  14. It would be revoulutionary for Congress to pass something as sensible as this...I'll be shocked if they do.
  15. Saying it's the best Fender Acoustic you've ever played is something to be taken seriously. I suspect you've played a lot of them over your career. Great review!
  16. GREAT REVIEW PHIL!!!! want.....want...want...
  17. Another informed, well rounded review Phil! Appreciate the work, dedication to detail you put into your reviews!
  18. Interesting interview with a really interesting guy!
  19. Wonderful article Craig! Pete's one of my 5 favorite players so this was a treat for me!
  20. What is there to say? The Rennaisance had it's Michalangelos and we had our George Martins and Eddie Kramer's...
