Cool Ass Guitars…

May 12, 2007

This is going to be a new feature here, where I post pictures of cool guitars I find online or in my forums.

Let’s start it off with this Vinnie Vincent Vee Jackson, found at Harmony Central’s forums, posted by AzCat. Enjoy!!

Vinnie Vincent Jackson V

Great, although not for me. I would never be caught dead playing a Vee, but I think they’re cool and enjoy seeing others play them. There are very few Vees that I think are cool, for example, some older Gibson Vees and some of the crazier Jackson Vees, especially the Roswell one, also posted by AzCat.

Roswell VeeBoy does this guy have some Cool Ass Guitars.


I Smell a Rat!!

May 12, 2007

I LOVE me a Rat pedal Rat

I swear by them. To me they are the best sounding distortion boxes around. Mix it with a tubescreamer, or even another rat, and it’s a tone to die for.

And I’m talking about the originals. The new ones don’t sound the same. I’m lucky, I’ve got an original, and an original Rat2 with the led light. Yup, pure heaven.

Are you a fan of the Rat? Let me know what you think.


What’s up with Ebay?

May 12, 2007

As far as guitars go, I’m really perplexed by the fact that there’s such a fluctuation in prices on good and bad instruments. Good ones not pulling in nearly what they should command, and bad ones pulling in way more money than they’re worth. For instance, I just sold a Shecter C7+, which was the top of their Diamond line, for $280, while I saw a lesser model 7 string Shecter go for about $400. I should’ve definitely gotten that, but I didn’t put a reserve either which is my own stupid fault. I don’t think allot of people knew that particular model because it was discontinued a few years ago, but was comparible to their blackjack line, if not better, in my opinion. Just like the C+. The plus signified the better build. I hated to ship that one.

I’m sure everyone’s got horror stories from Ebay, I know I’ve got plenty. But if it has to do with music equipment, I’d love to hear. I’d also love to hear any suggestions as to how you handle your selling so that it goes good.


Something for Your Health

May 6, 2007

In my blogroll I have a link to a site that sells magnetic rings for your fingers and feet. Now I use these magnets and they work. Magnets have the mystical magnetic property that our bodies also have, so it makes sense that they would do something, but what they do is beneficial. Within the first week and just using them on my right side, I noticed the bags under my right eye were gone and I didn’t have them on right. So just a suggestion, I think you should try them out, they’ve been proven to improve blood flow and I believe, as many others do, that they do much much more. If you do try them, please let me know what you think or how they benefit you.


Of Things to Come….

May 2, 2007

Ok, so I’ll start out this by saying that I’m a little confused about this blog thing, but I’ll keep tinkering til’ I get the hang of it. Also, my hope is to do this at least every other day or so, so….

First on the list is, ok… I’ve decided a couple things. First, I’m gonna start selling vinyl albums on ebay. I’ll post the link in a couple days if anyone’s interested, and if you are you can let me know what you’re looking for and I’ll see if I can come across it. I’m gonna be getting my stock, so to speak, at the local thrift store, and boy do they have some good stuff. It’s cuz of the area, very “urban, so there’s like old Rolling Stones albums there for like $1.

It’s also very late, or early, depending on how you look at it and I’ve been up pondering the future all night so I’ll fill you in on more of what’s to come for me tomorrow.
