There's one way to fix that. ;-)

Nice. I used to play quite a bit, mostly just for my own entertainment, but haven't played any in a while (probably have forgotten how).

Broke a string a couple of years ago and never got around to replacing it.

Never had a nice guitar and the one I have is so hard to play it's more like work than fun anyway.

Nice bikes. My brother used to ride a rocket quite a lot. He said the adrenalin rush became addicting. The problem was, he had to keep pushing it to get the same rush. One day he got in an accident and spent a month in a hospital. Lost a bit of his memory so he does not even know what happened. Now he says he feels like a recovering addict. He dares not even go for a ride.

Thanks. Sorry about your brother. I've had friends die riding to fast on the mountain roads, and highways. I decided to go racing instead for my "rush" and believe me, racing on a track and racing on the street are 2 completely different things. That got kind of spendy for me, so I began racing SuperMoto, which was less, then switched to just dirt riding with my Son, which was for me much more fun.

 

I'd suggest you talk with your brother, about either riding on a track (track days) under controlled circumstances, or maybe go dirt riding...?

@mcanadiens? Anyone?!!!

I was years ago.  Two different bands.  I also played solo before that.  Now I just play.

Yeah I love the recording studio. Very heavy though. Got me through my punk/indie years nicely though. ;)

Perceptive. Yeah my uncle who makes the bows makes the guitars as well. They are very popular with the country stars I guess. They retail for 8-9k or so. I have no idea how much my #17 is worth. My dad has #03 which is pretty cool. :). Check out mcphersonguitars.com I think it is.

Some of the woods he uses are just beautiful. They can only make a handfull of guitars each month. The factory is pretty amazing to visit as well. It is fun to watch them making the guitars. Made here in Sparta, WI.
