It's closer to one tenth the price and I'm more than amazed at how good it plays.

This little bastard arrived a couple of days ago.  I gotta tell ya, Epi has really stepped up their game on this one.  Plays great, has wicked tone, and more sustain than what can even be legal!  SCHWEET!!!!!

Back in the '90s when Gibson first started making flame top Standards again. I went into the San Bernardino store, played one and told them "I'll be back in a week with cash!"  They wouldn't let me put it on lay away because I didn't have any cash on me, which was wisdom on their part because when I showed up to claim it, they had let some little kid drop it on it's face, and put a huge dent in the front of the guitar.  Their solution?  "We'll give you $100.00 off!"   My solution?  "You couldn't run fast enough to give it to me!"  The pictures I posted of the cherry one are of the particular guitar I bought.  I love the way the grain looks all splotched!  I also get a lifetime warranty with this one!

So............................I went to the trouble of ordering a hardshell case, and taking it to GC, and putting the guitar inside of it, and they still managed to "F" it up.  Being used, the guitar wasn't going to clear until the 18th of this month.  I happened to be in the area, and took Beth in to have a look at it, as she hadn't seen it yet.  Sure enough, big old divot in the back of the neck!  That's shitty enough of these incompetent idiots, but it gets better.  "How do we know the dent wasn't already there?" when I told them they'd have to take some money off the price.  Let me see if I'm getting this all down.....After paying a guitar off that I can't even take out of the store, you're going to call me a liar.........I see....  Then the warehouse manager was having a hissy fit because after asking his boss if it was okay I brought the case in hoping that would be enough to keep this shit from happening, he starts demanding that I come get the case right away.  "Let me tell you something homeboy, I ain't on the F'ing payroll, you we're on MY payroll until just now!  Now that's over......."  I ordered a brand new cherry red one from Sweetwater (They don't make Pelham Blue ones anymore) and it will be here in a couple of days.  $20.00 a month........I'll pay it off somehow!  When my friend Tony was managing this particular GC, he managed to improve the store dramatically, so much that they moved him to another store, and gave this one to a chick named "Lindsey" who has managed to turn it back into "Do you want fries with that?"  Being incompetent is one thing, bad enough, but by the time we want to accuse me of lying, and start ordering me around like I'm on the payroll or sumpin' it's like I always say "I've always prided myself on being a fun date, and a fun date "F***S back!"  They just went to the drive-in with a DV8...........

I just pulled the trigger on one of these!  (Not this particular one, but an identical guitar and case)  Epiphone seems to have stepped up their game quite a bit.  The Pelham Blue finish is translucent, so you can see the wood grain.  It plays really well, and has coil splitters.  I may swap out the pups for a set of Lollars, but for now I'm undecided.

It's ironic that these sons of bitches look down on people on welfare, when they can go for decades with out working a day, while all the time sucking the governments tit.  I'd pay good money to see Yo give Paul Ryan a good working over.

Actually, under the new plan, insurance is no longer compulsory.....@ $300. a week, they could BL** me and spit.  It's all a big crap shoot.  You're betting $300, that you're going to be ill this week, they're betting their profit margin that you aren't.  Even the majority of Repubs aren't supporting this new plan.  Paul Ryan is one of these guys who try to sneak his warm hand in your pants, and when sounded about it, tries to say he's only checking your pulse.

The main feature of the new plan-- $600 billion in tax cuts for the wealthy and corporate.  That is what's driving the bus.
Of course!  They're republicans.  That's what drives everything they do!

I'm overdue for my first scoping.  Does the doctor spring for dinner and a movie first?


No but he did call the next day, and I thought that was nice.....

I've been woodshedding for the last couple of months, and have been learning tons of stuff.  I've actually played so much that my fingertips are like hamburger.  It's been a long time since anything like that has happened.  Turns out I'm not the worst student I've ever had......

I had a colonoscopy yester day.  Two polyps removed, but they said they aren't cancerous or anything like that.  This is like the 5th one for me.  The first time they took out a half a dozen pre-cancerous polyps, but apparently that was the end of all that.  This was the first procedure I've had where they knocked me all the way out.  MUCH BETTER!  I never figured out why they wanted me conscious for the first 4, I really was never that much help.......

I don't know what's up.  He dropped off of my radar 100%.

I haven't talked to him in quite a few months.  I sent him a couple of messages on FB, but got no response, so I left it alone.
