  1. I really look forward to trying one of these out.
  2. I'll be watching the prices of US-made Ovations, new & used. I've been wanting one.
  3. Every I bought a lower-priced T last month. Everybody from my local repair guy to the vendor thought the T was the better choice in my case. I wanted to get the HP model. But I took their advice. I think in the Faded, Studio and Tribute line, the upgrade to HP is worth the money. In the higher-end LP's - I would stick w/T.
  4. Great article. I'm glad to hear about this. I've been using MIDI since before the GM1 standard was established. It rarely gets the credit it's due. I saw in the late 80's that MIDI could be the most liberating technology in the history of music. IMO, it has lived up to the hype. So I'm always happy to hear musicians give MIDI the short shrift.
  5. I don't find this design visually appealing. I am seriously looking at the offset 2014 model though. Online retailers are blowing them out at $799 to $899 - with case. That is a huge bargain for a new US-made Gibson.
  6. (Emphasis added by me) Chris Loeffler wrote: “I don't see the guitar disappearing from the lexicon of modern AMERICAN music anytime soon, †Not everyone lives in the USA. So what is going on in the rest of the world - for example - the high-growth markets in Asia? How much appeal does electric-guitar centered-music have today in India, Japan, S. Korea, Indonesia? How about West Africa & Latin America? Do Marshal stacks & Strats still have futures in those places too? I don't have sales figures. Maybe you do. From what I've seen & heard in my travels, the prominence
  7. Censorship is a growing problem. The censors should be rounded up, tortured and shot. Likewise those whom they would censor should also be rounded up and shot. But I do not recommending torturing them. It's against the law and it reflects badly on a compassionate society. In fact, the best solution to this very difficult and sensitive problem might be to arrest and execute everyone. It would be a way to make a clean break. A new broom sweeps clean you know....The logistics and little details, the who's, the how's, the when's, and where's, can be worked out after we've agreed on the plan a
  8. I just picked one up in a local pawn shop. I had no idea it was a 30+ year old amp made in Mississippi, USA. Heavy as lead. Pots are scratchy. It's loud and noisy and comes with an alternate setting: "Even louder and noisier". Hope I didn't pay too much. Anyone own one? Mine is missing a knob too.
  9. Mr. Binh & his brother Mr. Minh took me to their factory today. I took some pics. The factory is a little ways outside of Saigon. It's in a District called Tan Binh. Here is what the road looked like. Here's what the neighborhood looks like. Nice. No crowds of people. Not much traffic.
