Come on classifieds crawlers, share those listings that make you chuckle, shake your head, or generally wonder about the state of human civilisation.
@Lonn you must see 20 of these a day!
Here's one: Guy 'upgrades' his Squier with a Fender waterslide and wants $US350 ($500 Australian)...
I read about people doing trades, and see them advertised, and think, nah, not for me.
Maybe it's because I'm picky but it just seems unlikely that two people will each have a guitar the other one wants and do a deal that they both are happy with.
Yes, of course, there's a poll!
I was telling my youngest that the pink Hello Kitty Squier I bought her 7 years ago for $AUD200 is probably worth double that... clever dad
so checked on Reverb out of interest and holy crap! They're asking $AUD1000-plus. She thought that was cool but isn't going to sell it. She doesn't play...
I was in a local store playing some of the usual suspects ... Taylor, Martin, Gibson, Maton. The American (or Australian) made stuff because I'm a snob.
In the corner was a group of Eastmans. Like everyone else I've heard the buzz around Eastmans, how they're crafted by hand in a small(ish)...
No, this is just a Tribute.
A very nice one though.
The story began with my son messaging me today to say there's a Classic Series '50s strat on FB Marketplace, with G&G case, for less than half the new cost of the strat alone. So I messaged the guy but my heart wasn't really in it. I'm not a...
Incredible 3rd quarter. After looking down and out, Melbourne banged on 7 goals straight to take a 24 point lead into the final term.
Go Dees! I'm actually a Sydney Swans fan but love to see the dogs lose after they beat us in 2016.
Recently I completed the hat trick, the holy trinity, the gleesome threesome, the triffic troika (OK I'll stop now) - stratocaster, telecaster and jazzmaster. Brilliant designs all of them.
Anyone else got the set? Show 'em off!
I thought you vintage aficionados would appreciate this unspoiled beauty, for sale in Australia. The pics are zoomable
OK so for this recording venture I'll start with some fairly simple covers. But more fundamentally I'll start with a drum track because I know that's going to be the biggest hurdle to getting it done, so I want to get it done first. And let's face it, it's the backbone of any song. I mean a...
The creative juices have been flowing lately and I'll soon be looking to record some songs.
I get that DAWs are the way to go for ultimate power and flexibility, but they're also a bit of a rabbit hole, and working 50 hour weeks I don't have a lot of time for steep learning curves.
Back in the...
Quite a day! Channeling ST's Guru of GAS @Lonn, I bought two guitars in the space of an hour. An expensive one that I had been thinking about for a few days, and a relative 'cheapie' that just popped up this morning and I grabbed on impulse.
2009 PRS McCarty PF-09 in Smoke Burst. Limited...
Seriously, full step bends are getting too hard for these 61yo fingers. Looks like it's time for a strategic retreat to 9s, on the unwound strings at least. Elixir have a 9-46 set which I'll give a try. Alternatively I could toughen up and practice those bends more often.
