    Guitar Players: Show us yours!

    Oh...and I got this Dean acoustic electric. Reviews I read on one of the guitar forums was "trash with flash":bigsmile: But it seems to have a nice mellow tone. And I think the pawn shop had it priced wrong. Looks nearly brand new. Not sure I'm going to like it though. It's a little too big...

    Guitar Players: Show us yours!

    My new old ukulele. Guinnini baritone. Made in Brazil. Maybe early 70's. Shows it's age with a few beauty marks, but solid. It's pretty dirty in the pic. But I think it'll clean up nicely. I was able to tighten up the cheap friction tuners. Brass frets. And a little narrower at the nut than...

    Parts gathering for the Kona Cafe' is starting to fall in place. The most elusive part, that fit the narrative, was obtained today.:D Vintage Giannini baritone uke from a pawn shop for next to nuthin. And the story continues.

    Guitar Players: Show us yours!

    Was thinkin I needed something quieter to practice with. So I figured a solid body electric guitar unplugged or through earphones. Found a real nice black and sunburst Palmer Les Paul that I really liked. But got this on sale for sixty bucks out the door instead. It's an Optek Fretlight 500. It...

    Guitar Players: Show us yours!

    Lots of nice stuff in here. I'm really just getting started playing, and have already become a bit enamored with the instruments. Got the Surfcaster first. And although I have an interest in playing it, probably more of an investment. Like an inexpensive piece of art. Then I found something...

    Brr

    We hit 65 today in north Texas. Had a couple of unseasonably cold mornings earlier this week. Low 20's is out of the norm round these parts before Turkey Day. So we got a bird goin in the oven early in the mornin to catch up.

    That looks too fast to ride on the trails around here. I don't think they'd allow it. And probably have to be registered as a motorcycle to ride on the street. And how could I even mount a banana seat on a full suspension bike!!:bigsmile:

    120 is pretty reasonable. A heck of a lot more than I paid for the bike. But nothing close to what the higher end downhill forks go for.

    Craigslist nightmares and dreams...

    A pawn shop down the road had a Puma folding bike by Biomega that I could've bought for about $80 But I was afraid I'd break it. And it was a little rough. Needed a good tune-up.

    Gotta try and get motivated this weekend on the skateboard seat. Gonna double up on this in the morning. Also thinkin I picked the wrong string instrument for my prop. Not sure the Charvel is what I needed to learn on. But it looks cool. So...picked up this old early 70's Yamaha classical...

    Thanks. I read some reviews and they weren't all positive. Some didn't like the twangy sound that the unorthodox shape and small slash sound hole help produce. But apparently these were used by some who desired that sound. But I was looking for a smaller guitar. Something bordering on a parlor...

    Matti goes shopping. New bike phobia

    Funky style and a cool color. I kinda like it. Obligatory detractions as requested: But the yellow forks stand out a little much. The frame does look smallish. And more maintenance and future expenditures than a hardtail.

    Yeah, looks like it.Might be a good inspiration for this build. Wish I could find some cool triple tree suspension forks like those at a reasonable price. Would make mounting headlights and a little quarter fairing like that easier. Maybe this will become an e-bike. Anyway, the guitar turned...
