    Can someone clear this mystery up for me?

    The first one is the hardest. After that, it's all "character".

    Shelter in place.

    I am in software development and have been working from home since the late '80s. We have slowed down some, but still have a lot of work to do. Where this hits me is in my free time. Because I have worked from home for so many years, one of our "releases" has been to go into town periodically...

    Can someone clear this mystery up for me?

    My SG is from '76. No fret work at all done on it yet. It gets a lot of playing. You can see a lot of wear on the fretboard. Frets don't wear down and age overnight. It takes time. Each time we play, we wear them down oh so little at a time - tiny, tiny incremental changes. Because we are...

    After 15 years of playing left handed

    I agree. It's the individaul. I think a lot of it hangs on the degree to which the individual is left-handed. Some people write left-handed - and that's it. Everything else is done right-handed. Except for sports (which I play equally poor whether right-handed or left-handed), I pretty much do...

    SG, ?, Amp Whats in your signal chain/!!!!

    /\ /\ It's surprising how small the Fuzz Faces are now. When I bought mine (either late 60s or early 70s) they were the size of small pizzas. The new ones fit on a board much better. Back then we didn't really have "boards". All of our gear was daisy-chained on the floor.

    After 15 years of playing left handed

    Hope for the best for you! Good luck. For me, I've played left-handed since the 60s. At my age, too much of an investment (time and money) would be required for me to even think of switching.

    Wow. The limits some will go to work on bending notes!

    Left-Handed or Right-Handed? Kind Of A Poll

    Well, the proof is left as an exercise to the right student. I'll shut the door on my way out. :D

    How much did higher education cost you?

    @cerebral gasket, I am definitely not what I consider a "smart" person. I squeaked by some classes (chemistry). But, some of the things I learned in college stuck with me. A lot didn't. My biggest takeaways were a process for learning new things, and, believe it or not, a system of quickly...

    How much did higher education cost you?

    I went to a state college (1972-1977 - I crammed 4 years of college into 5 years). As a state resident, I was able to pretty much able to do a work and pay-as-you-go for college. It's been a while, but it seems like tuition was around $50 per credit hour back then. (I could be wrong, it has been...

    The Norlin Era SG Custom and SG Standard.

    You are preaching to the choir here. Mine is a few years older than yours, and except for mine having a multitude of battle scars, looks much like your SG. I will say though, the finish on my SG has given me some issues as it has aged over the years (as opposed to the LP). It has lost its...

    Left-Handed or Right-Handed? Kind Of A Poll

    What I meant was this: If, for example, we are left-handed and fight with using a right-handed playing position, we will spend more time fighting with the guitar than we will in learning. Once we get the correct one for us, whether it be right-handed, left-handed, or some combination, we will no...

    Left-Handed or Right-Handed? Kind Of A Poll

    Lefty playing lefty. While we all have something in common (love of guitar, love of music, ...) each of us is wired a bit differently. Some things which are obvious to me are completely hidden from others. And, on the flip side, others see some things as obvious - yet they have to show me...

    SG, ?, Amp Whats in your signal chain/!!!!

    I go through a volume pedal, an Effectrode Blackbird, and (depending upon the need) either a Zendrive or a Jester ... into a Mesa TA-30.

    Gibson SG 1973 lefty

    Same here - another left-handed (Norlin) SG player. I hope you will like yours as much as I like mine. Mine has been through the wringer multiple times. Lots of battle scars on it. Yet, it is my favorite guitar to play.

    Jim Crow has not left the building

    I may be out in left field here, but I wonder if perhaps it is another check to see if the caller is telling the truth. Not quite the same scenario, but it may explain a bit of what I wonder. I have some things I use when interviewing prospective employees - to see if they are lying or...

    Forsooth! Has everythingSG gone belly-up for good?

    I heard that too. But, I have no clue what it means.
