    I uploaded mine from my harddrive, so I'm good there...

    Of course there is plenty of space on the RA servers it's just the fucking hassle of having to do it.

    Let me know if you need to move stuff on there and we can get it sorted.

    I'm not sure I want to know what you were looking for when you found that...

    January was Ibanez month. I found this Talman at Guitar Center out on the west side



    Serial number says it's a TC420. Made at the Cort Plant, Korea in May, 1997. Neck is pretty much the same as my '94 MIJ Talman TV650, but the body is real wood, where the TV650 is "Resoncast." Came with a nice non-original hard case, too.

    Then at the end of the month I found this at Guitar Center in Youngstown



    Fireman FRM150. Paul Gilbert style. Set neck, mahogany body, maple and mahogany neck, DiMarzios. Came with the original fitted case. Not a mark on it anywhere, there's still some plastic under the knobs. Plugged it in to the 6505MH and it's fucking perfect. The body is a little bigger than I'm used to but it's not too bad.

    A few days later I found a PS120 at a used shop in Toledo. Paul Stanley Iceman, black with the silver binding. It was gone before I could get there. There will be another...

    Black guitars seem to be multiplying around here.

    Found this SX Tele copy at GC for under $200. Because everyone needs a Tele, right?



    The neck is glossy, that's about the only thing I don't like.

    Then I found an OLP at the other GC on the west side. Under $150. I loves me some cheap guitars. The description read "disco sparkle." Could be a candidate for a stripe job.



    And a few days later this pops up on one of the local FB groups. First Act Paul Westerberg signature model. Price on this one? A whole $60.





    Couple years ago I had seen one in a shop close to where I met the seller of this one. I passed on it, went back a week later and it was gone. Might be the same one, who knows. I guess they are becoming rare, being a Westerberg fan I'll keep it.

    Was in Toledo a couple weeks ago and stopped at Music Go Round on my way out. They've had this import Hamer Echotone there for a while. Price came down a little so I brought it home. I was in "I don't have one of THOSE!" mode.



    Previous owner had a Roland synth pickup installed and screwed it into the body. Ugh. I'll fix the holes later. PO also added coil tap switches. These Korean Echotones are supposedly more desirable than the later ones. Came with a cheap chipboard case that is just good enough to keep the dust off the guitar.

    Finally got a pic of the Ravelle and Wolfgang together too. I put the Duncan "Hot Rodded Humbucker" set in the Rav in the spring and it sounds pretty good.



    Out of the four I got recently, the only one that's been plugged in at home is the Echotone. Been too busy riding my bike and kayaking. Got all winter to play guitar.

    Damn no wonder you haven't played the WG much! Is there professional help for guitar addition?
    I've done a lot of kayaking and canoeing this summer, but it's affected my yard work more than my guitar playing/practice.

    The WG has been living in the case the Talman I bought in January came in. Next to the Fireman in its case, and my '84 Hamer Steve Stevens I. The Fireman is too heavy to hang on the wall, and I put the SS away every now and then. I won't get rid of that one, either.

    The Westerberg is closest to where I sit at the PC so it's the first one I grab if I want to play along with something on Sirius. Not plugged in yet. I did noodle around on the Tele yesterday while listening to INXS. Not plugged in. I don't have an amp in here, my friend's old Crate combo is in the living room. I'm off most of next week, I will take them all down into the Loud Room and try 'em out on the 6505MH and maybe the baby Marshall. And the Westerberg and Echotone on the Valve Jr. head and cab I built.

    And I just realized I don't have any more straps. Off to Amazon again...

    Haven't gotten much rain since the 4th of July here, I'm cutting the grass every 10 to 14 days now. Started out every 5 to 7 days in the spring and early summer.
