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

I got an iPhone 7plus last year and the only time I do the pic anymore is business accounting. If I put my quickbooks in the cloud, I can handle that with the iPhone. I'm am now one of those people with my head in the device all day.

Good luck with your new life !

Getting the toys set up at the new place. I got 4 mics and I also attached the focusrite 2 channel pre amp the line 6 pod pro and the BBE bass preamp in the remaining  4 slots on the 8 channel interface

That's how they keep the Nashville plant in line. Offer an equivalent at half the price.

Congrats!

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!!!!!

Congratulations! I bet that is an axe I could love.

Cool, don't be the nice guy and let them move in before you close.

They are living with the husband's Mom, 1-2 miles from me.  They are OK there, and can take as long as they need to move (after 9/15).  So, I don't see them wanting in early.  If anything, we might be in a position where we are not out in time, and would rent back from the new owners.  Working hard to make sure that doesn't happen.

We probably will not be out till the day before we close!  So much to do!   Hauled a load of old paint/solvents/herbicides/pesticides to our local Hazardous Waste dropoff site.  Selling my PA on Saturday.  For my next trick, I will be weaning off of my desktop computer!  Moving everything to my laptop, and a few big standalone hard drives.  Also, setting up a mail forwarding/scanning service and switching mailing address.  Changed to a portable email address earlier.  Lots of odd stuff to think about!

We just signed a contract to sell our house.  Closing Sept 15.  So, we will be intentionally homeless in a month!  Exciting times. 

We found a perfect buyer.  We are going 'by owner', not even a 'buyers agent'.  Better price for buyer, better proceeds for seller.  Also, they left most of their belongings behind in their last house, so they are perfectly fine with leaving most everything.  That eliminates our need to have a final 'estate sale' push to get rid of furniture.  Most everything else is already pared down.

We were excited while we were selling/giving away belongs in the early summer.  As we shifted to 'selling the house', we kind of got into the doldrums.  Then BAM, contract, closing date, etc.  Nothing is foolproof till closing has happened, but the deal looks really good, and both sides are very committed to making this happen smoothly.  They have already used our address when signing their kids up.

I am switching off my old ISP email address to a new gmail (rich.reavis.kc@gmail.com).  What a pain, to figure out all the places that I am connected to, via that old email!  Figuring out mail hold/forward services, banking without physical address, etc.  RV'ers work through these same issues.

A little later in the year that I thought.  But, the upside is Hurricane Season ends in October, so the scenario of becoming a new boat owner, then immediately facing a hurricane is very unlikely now.   And we have the freedom to stay south, as we choose.

Time to make a final push to unload the rest of my music gear that is not going.  A friend of mine opened a music store a few months ago.  He will gladly consign whatever I don't sell before I leave.  Just chewing through all the to-do's.  A bunch of little issues, but they are all very workable. 

Planning on taking my Traveler AG 450, and my strat.  That Traveler is a blast to play on.  Small pedal board (I still have to cobble together), and my Quilter mini head.  I think I am going to sell of my Epi 1x12, I've been using.  I had thought about getting a small Orange cab with an 8" speaker.  But, I think I will wait till the real need for a cab arises.  We will be living out of a minivan, and various motel/hotel/airbnb/etc.  Space will be tight!  Taking whatever clothing, tools, boat gear, that we will continue to own.  I find myself saying "no room on the ark for that!".  What a great problem to have.

I plan to keep in touch, but internet access may be spotty at best.  Not necessarily a bad thing!

I've bought several things from Sweetwater.  Always good.  Enjoy that new axe!


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!
