Gear


#261

Finally got my hands on a standard, really impressed with it, lovely to play.


#262

That’s real purty.


#263

Beauty!

That definitely looks like a plus top too.


#264

It is AAAA flame (though quite subtle for that grade) 2016 Les Paul HP Standard. Picked her up second hand at a reasonable price and really impressed. Don’t even mind the robot tuners which have been quite divisive from what I have read…


#265

I’ve seen some Gibsons with those auto tuners go for reasonable prices on the used market lately. Seems like it would be really helpful, especially if you used a lot of alternate tunings.


#266

I’ve found it great, tunes perfectly and quickly and switching to open G for a bit of Stones is a breeze.


#267

We got a new camera and I liked this pic.


#268

I like that Epiphone there.


#269

Bought that for a steal out of high school.


#270

A sitar!


#271

That means there’s a bong and a bag of weed in that hidden object picture.


#272

Many bongs and jars of weed. The sitar was a gift. We’re a sort of an instrument repository for family and friends and sometimes strangers. There’s a fold up pump organ around here somewhere.


#273

Really can’t say enough about the katana mk2. So much amp for the money.

The Scarlett 2i2 is nice and simple to use as well.


#274

I got the same Scarlett device for Xmas to replace an aging Tascam. Sadly, haven’t used it yet. How’s yours working out?


#275

Really liking it so far, very simple to use and sound quality good via headphone monitoring. Latency non-existent. Pro Tools first that came with it not compatible with Windows 10 2004 so got cakewalk instead. Early days, but good so far.


#276

Isbell gets a Fender sig Tele.


#277

Why does everything have to be “artisan aged” or whatever they call it. I’m just not into the dishonest wear thing.


#278

That’s not a bad price though, be more over here though no doubt.


#279

Got my banjo adjusted and set up. I’m enjoying playing it. It is a 4-string Framus that my uncle gave to me. I’ve been messing around with different tunings, which is kind of fun.

GDAE is my new favorite.


#280

Kalamazoo is getting a new hotel “Reverb” by Hard Rock, supposedly. It is a really interesting idea and would be great for that side of town… if not the whole area. People have been talking about having a concert venue that brings in high quality musicians, along with a place to stay, eat and drink. The fact that it is connected to a Gibson guitar museum of sorts along with a way to view the Heritage guitar factory from the lobby/restaurant sounds oddly appealing. I’m skeptical, but I really hope this works out.
