    Never trust your guitar stand... EVER!

    @Ax and Kevy, thank you very much, but I'm in Red Bank, New Jersey. @Mikeystool, not exactly sure, but it looks to me like a leg was loose and it just buckled. @uyasgali, thank you for the tip. I'll give 'im a call!

    Never trust your guitar stand... EVER!

    A bit of elaboration: When my grandmother died a couple years back, she left me money in her will specifically to help me buy a guitar. I bought this one. This is not only my favorite guitar, but a memory of my beloved Omi as well. I am willing to pay any price and travel any distance to get it...

    Never trust your guitar stand... EVER!

    This is probably the wrong section to post in, but I need to vent. I was recording at my computer with my newly worked on 61 Reissue. This guitar means the WORLD to me. As I went to go get a drink, I put it down on my Ultra guitar stand and walked away. As I got out of the room, I heard a crash...

    cold weather

    I think one can find a post from last year that I wrote complaining about missing the snow from my youngest years. I guess the ETSG boards must be a wish granting machine, because we got 2' from the huge storm the weekend before Christmas here along the Jersey shore, another two 4-5&quot...

    Returning with a message...

    Oh indeed. Saw them on tour with God Forbid, Municipal Waste and COB at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Absolutely amazing, great crowd, and huge energy. Then again, my girlfriend of a year (Oh do I adore her!) somehow scored us floor tickets to see LOG open for Metallica at Madison Square, which was...

    what I got for Christmas was...

    Line 6 UX2 recording interface, along with a Shure SM57 mic I bought myself so I can FINALLY lay down some tracks! Oh, and as a joke from my father, a huge Zep fan, a bow with some rosin. ;D

    Returning with a message...

    Wow. Did not expect this to explode like it did. Sorry for disappearing. Broke my thumb during a Christmas gig accident when a speaker fell on me... (Yes, I do break easily and often.) I return with a bit more fuel. This is of the biggest bother to me: Modern metal guitar playing. Typically...

    Returning with a message...

    Note: All that follows is purely opinion, sans the first two intro paragraphs, which, I assume, would be what we call "fact". Hey all, It's been forever since I've posted here. Death of a few family members plus an intense school year have practically ended any life I have had...

    It's Only Getting Worse...

    *ducks for cover after Kevy's statement* Got the cast off today! Hurts like hell, and I'm going in for an MRI tomorrow! Woohoo one hour of nothing!

    It's Only Getting Worse...

    Found a way to bash out a few chords to "Say It Ain't So", practically picking from the elbow, but arm placement is impossible and the cast dug a nice rash/cut into my upper arm. Also hurts ALOT to move my index and middle fingers, so my original idea of figer picking through is out...

    It's Only Getting Worse...

    Hey all, Figured I'd give a little status update. At the tender age of 16, my guitar playing career may be over. 2 days ago during gym, as I was going up for a catch, I had our school's starting varsity running back run into my forearm, while a lineman hit my upper arm going the opposite...

    Re: Hamer DC Restoration Underway w/ Pics I don't think I'd ever have the patience to do the top replacement... You've done it again! :notworthy:

    Swine Flu mania, would you believe...

    Swine flu can be treated by such readily available flu drugs as Tamiflu. If you experience flu-like symptoms, doctor and meds, and let's all just calm America's collective mood down...

    Favourite drummer/bassplayer

    Bass - For sheer flash and skill, Arif Mirabdolbaghi of Protest The Hero continues to blow my mind, but Cliff Burton is also up there if we include the deceased. Drums - Des Kensel of High On Fire always makes me smile from the pure pounding on the drums, but Chris Pennie of Coheed And...
