    I have played many a Les Paul in shops and always told myself it was just too dang heavy. My back would be killing me after a gig with one of those beasts strapped around my neck.
    Yep and my 73 Deluxe went beyond heavy....it was a beaut tho with awesome tone. Can't even play a Les Paul comfortably as a lap sit down guitar IMHO so it was time to go. Like I said the guy who I traded with for the ES335 loves it. So we are both happy, which is nice. I love the 335!

    This was her, new owner put a Lollar Mini Humbucker back in. I had a PRS Dragon you can see placed in the bridge position - not routed .....

    The current MIM tele's are sweet, most models are fantastic. Not a big fan of the standards but all the versions based on 50's tele are fantastic currently. Baja are killer but a lot of folks are bitchin about the poly finish failing.....

    Just played a MIM classic player 50's style with nitro finish, alnico pups and reverse tone controls the other day for a long time at my GC. It was absolutely awesome!

    Another winner is the Squire Classic Vibe 50's. You have to change out all the electronics and the jack but other then that perfect.....can buy completely done electronics on eBay from quality sellers for $50 so easy peazy with super quality parts and soldering.....if I wasn't committed to culling the herd I would have already bought one of those. The Squire VM 72 Thinline is real nice too!

    What kind of guitar is John McLaughlin playing in this concert with Carlos Santana from 2016? See wicked solo at about 41:30. It looks very light and small. Santana plays really great in this concert too.


    Suck at the guitar, but was always a fan of good players. Way back in my college days early-mid 70s I saw McLaughlin play, also Frank Zappa, Billy Gibbons, Jan Akkerman (of Focus). Other players I've seen over the years: BB King, George Benson, Larry Coryell, Charlie Byrd, Derek Trucks

    I looked it up and it's made buy a guy called Mike Sabre. He also uses a Paul Reed Smith, which is what Santana uses I think.
    form is a 4 letter word

    Ok 2 weeks after surgery : Surgery went very well , only an hr and 20 minutes NOT the 3 to 5 hrs expected . Why , because the femoral device that was too short was SO loose it came out easily , so no additional ry good bone needed to be broken or longer incision made . SPent 2 nites in the hospital during the blizzard of 17 . My daughter and son from LIttleton' Ma and Manhattan came to Saratoga to drive us home 4 hrs north . They stayed 5 days to help us out .

    Had 3 pt sessions so far , mobility is very good , no more bobbing !! Can balance on a soft raised platform while blind folded and pt gently nudges me , can do squats , leg lifts , side outs and a drill that simulated the old football drill of lifting knees thru a tire obstacle course. Also got thru a Chicane style obstacle course and climbed stairs , ramps etc . Walking about 500 - 800 ft . STARTING To use the cane instead of walker BUT inside only till ice and snow melts . Went back to Sratoga this past tues /wed to remove surgical staples . They cut me in the SAME incisions no no additional scarring .

    pt now 3 times a week plus home routines , I WILL listen to the ole BOD this time thru rather than going Balls to the Wall lik3 i did a yr an half ago .. Btw bone density was very good so no cement .. My gait is way better now

    only reall issue is the god awful fissure i got in the butt six months ago from an IV drip opiodals when i was hospitalized foe Aflutter . This beotch is extreme pain for about 6-7 hrs after a dump . I had the bastard botoxed but not much relief . These tend to take a loooong tim3 and may require additional botoxing or intervention ...ugh . For yrs i have been i PIA and NOW i got one dammit

    BTW unsolicited commentery from my surgeon " I see you skiing next season " he is a glade runner himself so gets it

    VERY thankful gor all the medical wizardry and great support of. Family and friends . Got home our Chief Med Officer bought me some very cool guitar books and stuff , other friends cooked us seberal dinners , desserts etc and have had beaucoup calls so i am a lucky old sumbitch !
