    Moving to local live music, I caught a band for the first time last night, the Shartel and Hume Band. Its lead guitarist, Bob Hume (Brit's cousin, apparently), was phenomenal. Are any of you familiar with him? He had his own thang going while excelling in many styles.

    Don't know them, which is little surprising, as Bob and I have 192 FB friends in common. I'll have to go see them one of these days.

    They've been around and at JVs a long time ... probably 10 years since I saw him/them last.

    Wonder if Bob is any relation to Ray Hume, who was one of the regular sound guys at the Paragon. Whenever we gigged the Paragon, he made it a point to treat us like ****. Hated having that guy do our sound.

    We’re playing in Baltimore on Saturday, in case anyone’s in the area. Please say hello!

    Bar just cancelled both bands this evening. Not sure what’s up, but hey, that’s how it goes when you’re in a band. (I should really put that in a song)

    Anyone have a Les Paul they’d swap for my ‘96 Matchless Lightning head/112 cab?

    Has anyone had any fretwork done by either Todd Sharp or Walt Johns? I have a strat that doesn’t have another crown left in it and I’m struggling to find the right person to do the work. I’m on the other side of the mountain from most of the NoVa crowd so Annapolis and Baltimore, etc... won’t work. I just can’t shake away that much free time anymore with a family, etc...

    I’ll take recommendations as well.

    What about shipping the neck to a luthier?

    Don’t they need the whole guitar to get everything dialed in? I’ve had a bunch of refrets and they’ve asked for the whole guitar every time.

    I didn’t realize this was even a thing. I’d like to establish a relationship with someone an hour away or so. I’ve used the same guy for over a decade, but with a family and life commitments, I just can’t justify the 2+ hour (each way) trip at this point.

    If you haven't already, you should post this question to a more appropriate (more likely to be read) forum/subject heading. But I would think it would be possible to refret and level with just the neck. That would require you, or someone nearby, to install the neck and do a setup...

    Also glad to sell the duo locally- $1,900. NOS GE EL84’s and a NOS GZ34- I think it’s Raytheon. Preamp tubes are new production per my preference
