    Westone Spectrum FX

    I decided to thin the herd and sell my 1985 Westone Spectrum FX. This was my first guitar that I bought with my hard earned busboy money back in the fall of 1985. I think I was making $3.95 /hr. I know nothing about Westone guitars and went to wikipedia in search for details. One sentence...

    Looking for some non binding medical advice or opinions. This morning I woke up and my little finger and ring finger on both my left and right hands were swollen at the middle knuckle. Feels like I was in a street fight. Making a fist is very painful and chord shapes that require my little...

    Hi All - Anyone have any knowledge of National lap steel guitars? My buddy has one and asked if I knew anything about them. I never heard of them so I thought I would try tapping into the knowledge of this group. It needs some TLC for sure. Thanks T

    Piezo....or is it Piezo?

    Recently I’ve been seeing a lot of videos on the PRS SE hollow body piezo on YouTube. It’s been getting a lot of positive reviews and I’ve been casually thinking about getting a guitar with a piezo setup. It doesn’t appear that Gretsch has ever done a guitar with a piezo. Just wondering if...

But nobody seems to know of people looking to jam or hang out casually. I tried Craigslist but the only responses I got were to support someone’s...

    I’ve been inspired by many of you with all your recordings, so decided to get an audio interface. Now I have to figure out how to use it.

    My 18 year old water heater was acting up on the weekend. I was putting any repairs off. A few days later the city of Palm Springs went into lockdown. The next day I was on the phone with a plumber. He came this morning around 8 am and installed a new hot water heater... about 11 hours later the...

    Cheers from the Desert

    My main guitar is/was a Rick 360 until my wife bought me a white 5420t for our 10 year anniversary. I plugged that into my Vox AC10 and was very impressed. I wasn’t much of a vibrato arm player until I experienced the Bigsby, I love it. The Rick and Whitie started to split time. One day I got a...
