    If I lived in a province that didn't require a front license plate, I'd definitely want one of these.......

    A big part of our purpose here is to enable each other when we suffer G.A.S. attacks. Just in case you need any help in that department, I thought I'd put this up. This site is the domain of JC Maillet who was my amp guru for years when my Twin Reverb was ailing. He seems to have expanded beyond amplifier design and modifications, and he's got some new products that make me wish I had more disposable income. For you guys that don't suffer from R.I.D.S. (Retirement Income Deficit Syndrome) this stuff might be of some interest. Christmas is coming...Maybe Santa will drop some gear down my chimney, lol.

    Incidentally, if you're following itsallintheblues's jazz thread, there's an interesting entry in JC's Blog in the Music category. This is almost beyond my understanding, but I sense a tie-in to what DW and dB have been talking about.

    I would be inclined to put it on the side of my car...
    On the fender.
    I bought a relic'd guitar because I liked the way it sounded. Then I refinished it because I didn't like the way it looked.

    It doesn't happen often, but I succumbed to a GAS attack:

    Those sound really good. I was test driving a few & that was the best of them. There was a Dobro in that mix too.

    I went to my local store and they had two on the wall - this one and a lower-priced wooden one (also Gretsch). I initially bought the wooden one; it had more of that nasal quality I always associated with resos, but didn't have a pickup. But after a couple of days I kept remembering the feel of this thing. Much more substantial. It sounds more like a regular acoustic, but still has that quality about it. I finally decided that I wasn't going to cheap out. Went back to the store, plunked down the $400 difference and took this one home. No regrets. Sweet tone, good build quality.

    The thing that surprises everyone that picks it up is how heavy it is - just shy of 9 lbs. It IS all steel.
