    Wearing shorts on stage

    K Reminds me of how the talking heads on television are often dressed semi-formally above the waist, while wearing pajama pants and bunny slippers. Of course, a web search for examples only gave results I can't share here. :(

    How long did it take you to get your first Gretsch after you started playing guitar?

    About 23 years ago I worked with a guy whose side hustle was building mandolins. I overheard him one day, describing how he was experimenting with a rig with a speaker(s?) inside an old broken refrigerator that he would use to expose a new instrument to high-decibel white noise for several days...

    Kind of like the tester's mantra: "I didn't design the flinging thing, I just test the mother flinger".

    She's telling you that she's got legs, and she knows how to use them.

    This makes me want to hear a song called "Assertin' Girl". Maybe someone here will write one.

    Wearing shorts on stage

    Good point but baseball players, even in the minors, get paid more than I do for playing music. Come to think of it I've never made dime from performing, in any group, ever, including bands that were paid to play. When there's been money involved it always went either to the band (the entity...

    We wear black tuxedos for Big Band, or matching polos + black slacks if it's hot. "Concert black" for Concert Band and orchestra (or black tuxedo for formal gig). Caveat: out and about when it's 105+ degrees I wear whatever I darn well please!

    NRD (new rack day)

    I mentioned to MrsWookiee that there's room for a 12-string, and maybe a bass (or reso). She was not amused.

    NRD (new rack day)

    I've been thinking a lot about humidity and decided to steal someone's idea and make a humidified display rack from Ikea furniture, a few months ago. Due to supply chain issues I wasn't able to get a bookcase/glass door combo so I ended up with an armoire. I added a sheet of 11mm plywood to...

    Relic'ing...

    As the OP said, different strokes for different folks. I prefer honest wear but have seen relic'd jobs that looked terrific (I even own one). If I were looking for a new relic'd instrument I'd rather it be a one-off than a mass-produced "one of 500" units with identical relic treatments.

    Jokes thread

    For an instant my inner math geek was tempted to calculate the probability that 8 bowling balls falling from a bin would be simultaneously oriented such that each ball would have all 3 finger holes visible from a given viewing angle. Too much work, this early on a Sunday morning (or any other...
