    Ron Wood should be considered one of the R&B guitar greats

    I’ve felt this way about Ronnie. Such a treasure. I saw Bo Diddly and Ron Wood on a tour in the early 80s. They had a pickup band that warmed up then backed up the two giants. It was outrageously cool! Powerful show with solo work by both artists. I recall Ronnie played Prodigal Son.

    Say you've got $5-6k to drop on a vintage instrument...

    I’d head towards used artisan build with that money. Collings, Koll, McIntruff all of these hold value once they are used. They won’t go up or down in value as used instrument as long as you take care of them. And i think they are more likely to have fit and finish that you’ll love. My two...

    Who will refuse to watch "The Pedal Movie" on principle alone?

    If it’s animated I’m more likely to watch it. I want to watch the Carbon Copy stutter as a Rat squeaks and scurries while a pack of Timmys chase it.

    NAD - 5E7 Tweed Bandmaster

    Really excellent choices. I’ve owned a 5E7 for a few years that was made by Bluesland and it has been serviced by Ben Fargen who did some of his own magic to it. The OT is a MM I’ve had it in a 3x10 a long while back but it came to me as a head that had a single Weber Chicago 10” load in it...

    Would anything bad happen if I remove the body from the neck?

    I’d send it whole and pay extra. if you have not removed necks a few times here the things you may screw up. You’ve loosened the screws and taken the neck off; did you lift the neck by lift it directly away from the body? Well now you have chipped the paint it the neck pocket. Did you try to...

    Acoustic recommendation for a new player - not crazy expensive

    Dollars to quality I’d buy a used Takamine off craigslist. I’ve bought one a few years ago for $250 that had solid top and back and played very well. I just gave it my niece who wanted to play.
