    So, what are your recent acquisitions?

  2. Of course, and yes also suffer from GAS (guitars) and AAS (amps). Dopamine rush from the thrill of the hunt. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Rick and morty, bojack horseman. Also, Big Mouth is fantastic. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Started with Thompson’s and El Credito back in mid 90s, progressed to LGC and then had a RJ ex#4 in Prague, that was it for me. Got hooked up with a good source (“the ladies”) which at the time had insanely good prices. Good old days of $250 cohiba robustos! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. My son got invited to a Weezer concert and I went along on sat evening. I remember a few tunes from the 90s but really went into the show not knowing what to expect. Goddamn they really put on a great show, the opposite of “phoning it in”. I was very impressed, and also shocked at the fact that the crowd seemed to be mostly 20 somethings. I was expecting a bunch of 40 something dads like me!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. PITCH!!! Nobody I’ve met since college has heard of it. Pitch was our fraternity’s game back in school and I still say it is the perfect card game. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Guitars and amps. Old Pre-war Martins sound like pipe organs. A 52 Les Paul through an old Fender tweed deluxe or Old Marshall, can’t get there with modeling. Something about the way old tube amps respond to the vintage p-90s, sublime. They got it right back in 30s (acoustics) and 50s (electrics). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Gibson Guitars

    Similar to Martin, the changes Gibson made over the years since the golden era of the late 50s Les Pauls turned out to hurt the tone. Thick finishes, truss rod condom and overall higher production numbers make current Gibsons vastly different guitars vs the old ones. I found a luthier in England to build me a dead nuts accurate 59 les Paul replica down to the hide glue, fading alanine dye, vintage correct plastics etc for about the same cost as an Historic. The thing resonates like a tuning fork and I’m convinced Gibson hit the sweet spot back in 59 with that recipe. Same with Pre-war Martins, the things like hide glue, Brazilian rosewood, bar frets and no adjustable truss rod add up to that tone that sounds like a pipe organ. I still admire Gibson as a brand but sad to say you need to “run the racks” to find a good one these days. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. There is a musky, unsweetened cocao note, unfortunately I have only found it in some aged Sir Winston I had years ago. I got a hint in some Connie A I’m hoping will come out as they age. Wish I could find in other regular production. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I think I was at the spectrum show in 1990. Was that when they played scarlet begonias? I was rollin tough (college daze) but have some good memories of that show. Best dead show for me was RFK around 1993, Traffic opening. Eyes of the world as the skies opened up and poured rain. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Anyone claiming Clapton is overrated needs to have a listen to his work with mayall and the blues breakers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I had an ozone generator years ago and developed horrible allergic reactions. Also ate away at the rubber backing of our floor rugs which produced nasty off gassing be careful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
