    Merton Aloicious, he cain't write...

    Great movie! With one memorable line after another. "Ain't this place a geographical oddity . . . two weeks from everywhere!" "Is you is, or is you ain't, mah constituents?!?"

    1994 Guild D4-12 Overhaul

    Wow. What exemplary craftsmanship! Did you have any difficulty with the body's shape becoming distorted while the top was off?

    Oy . . . just to be clear, is a "yuper" someone from the Upper Peninsula?

    Starfire III dating question

    Welcome . . . Your guitar was probably built during the first half or so of 1970. The s/n system changed to all numbers sometime later in 1970.

    That person hasn't posted since June of last year, but you might try sending him a private message ("start conversation") from his profile: Bobett's profile

    21 year old Bonnie Raitt opening for the Byrds back in 1971!!!

    Regardless of whether it is a bootleg, it is a very good-quality recording. With a nice mix of classic blues, some of Ms. Raitt's own songs, and covers of tunes written by Stephen Stills, Jackson Browne, Steve Winwood, and more. A very enjoyable listen.

    12 string Guilds under $1000

    Welcome . . . Sounds like your Takamine would benefit from a professional setup, assuming it isn't in need of a neck reset. The Guild F2512E appears to be only about $500, but a case will cost extra. Maybe you can try one when you visit the USA.

    Questions from a new 1970 S100 Owner

    I think that method of speedy string winding would be fine if a single broken string needed to be replaced quickly. But I agree re: not cutting a string in the middle prior to replacement, if it was under tension.

    Will I did it again .

    Congrats, Ray. Please forgive this veer . . . your post reminded me of Richard Thompson covering Brittany Speers' "Oops, I Did It Again", from his "1,000 Years of Popular Music" show:

    Questions from a new 1970 S100 Owner

    I like that speedy re-stringing method. :cool: First saw it on a video from Lark Street Music in New Jersey (mentioned by this fellow as he began re-stringing the guitar). Lark Street is owned by a guy name Buzzy Levine, the older brother of one of my favorite Boston-area guitar players, Duke...

    RIP Prince Philip

    I'm guessing that being a Knight of the Garter isn't nearly as much fun as it sounds (lingerie inspector?). And Privy Counselor probably isn't as bad as it sounds (outhouse advisor?). 99 years is certainly a fine run. Imagine all the changes that one would observe, by living nearly a century.

    Tiger Woods in rollover car accident, sustained multiple leg injuries...

    I would argue that nearly doubling the posted speed limit in a SUV, on a road that locals say can only be negotiated by a high-end supercar and a professional driver at those speeds, with no effort made to brake or back off on the gas pedal, is good enough reason to consider the possibility of...

    Tiger Woods in rollover car accident, sustained multiple leg injuries...

    I was surprised that the police didn't even try to have blood samples tested for alcohol or drugs after that (obviously high-speed) crash. They certainly would have if a non-celebrity driver was at the wheel.

    Well, Bob might actually be her uncle . . . But the "Bob" she is referring to (in the "cool but creepy" thread) is Bob Weir, rhythm guitarist for the Grateful Dead.
