    Covid 19/Coronavirus

    Lots of drugs, especially the ones that advertise on network television, have a long list of side effects that they rattle off before the commercial is over. Normally your doctor will go over these with you before you are prescribed the medicine/therapy. If you do not receive such warning...

    US Political Discussion: Biden/Harris Edition (Rules in OP)

    Are those verses seriously keeping your life going in the right direction? As somebody that's never attended a church service in my life, it's humorous to me when people state their point and play this game of "check out my biblical cross referencing skillz" Does it make you feel like you're...

    SS Love and Relationships Thread

    Considering all of the husband's attitude toward the situation is being passed along through his wife, that's the first red flag. Also, do you have an idea of how many other times she's done this and with how many other partners? Is this a new thing for her? How confident is she that it won't...

    BKP cold sweat in the neck and nail bomb in the bridge. I have the same pickup configuration for my Equilibrium FT7.

    Here's the dealer pic of my Regius that's also in my avatar. Used the MBC Wasabi 7 as the base. Added a piezo, neck reinforcement, standard dots instead of luminlay, and gloss finish on front and back. I also have a Jabba 5 bass in Carnival Red. Semi-hollow body. Another dealer pic:

    Movies you've been watching...

    Speaking of Viggo Mortensen, I watched Crimes of the Future over the weekend and it was everything you could want from a Cronenberg body horror movie. I heard that it was rather divisive at the film festivals with lots of walk outs, but if you can stomach the mutilation/surgery scenes, it's a...

    US Political Discussion: Biden/Harris Edition (Rules in OP)

    Over time, that kind of wore out, but immediately post-911 I found it was more unifying. I was in college during 911 and remember a few weeks later receiving a pin from some student organization on campus. Anyone that wanted one and lots of faculty and students would put them on their...

    Jackson/Charvel Owners Club

    Make sure you get the right one...the length should be etched on the side of the block. The stock one that came with my OFR was for top-mounted/non recessed floyds so it was too long for the san dimas and wouldn't allow the trem to move properly when the back plate was on. When I ordered the...

    Jackson/Charvel Owners Club

    I can't speak for titanium, but I did upgrade the trem in my Pro-Mod San Dimas to OFR and an oversized brass block. It did have a slight increase in sustain, but it seemed like I was switching to higher output pickups. Made the thing sound louder and clearer in my case. Not sure if titanium...

    It's official, a """Pantera reunion""" is happening.

    The problem is that when he was in Ozzy's band for the albums you mentioned never buying, he was nothing like he appears today. I've met him 2 or 3 times during those years (mid 90s) and he was more like a skinny hippie with bell bottoms and a giant tractor chain from his wallet to his jeans...

    Periphery Megathread: Everything Periphery

    Yeah, he's discounted it again since my post. Kind of erodes the whole sentimental argument for pricing. He wants these things to move.

    Oh shit, he's price dropping everything by 10 percent. "Just have funds with it"

    Movies you've been watching...

    I was at an Ozzfest (pretty sure it was '98) and EVERY girl/woman that decided to crowdsurf near the stage was groped or had their clothes torn off. I saw at least 2 girls get stripped naked by the crowd and passed to the front where security was waiting with a blanket to cover the girl up. 10...

    Bands that never lived up the hype or their potential

    One of my all time favorites and a huge influence on my acoustic playing. I've seen them several times in concert and hung out after the shows and it's such a shame what happened to Travis. First time I met him, he was the nicest guy, a few years later he'd ditched the band and was very...

    They went for between 1K and 6K and then Essex Recording Studio has been trying to sell them for 10 to 20 times as much since. https://reverb.com/shop/the-official-dave-mustaine-reverb-shop?show_only_sold=true&sort=price%7Cdesc

    Bands that never lived up the hype or their potential

    I also had high expectations after TGE. Obsidian Conspiracy just felt like they dialed it in on most of the tracks and they weren't as inspired as their previous albums. I really liked what Peter did with Praises to the War Machine.

    Periphery Megathread: Everything Periphery

    That would be nice, but at the rate these are going, he's not likely to get anywhere close to asking price. The shop's been up for a day now and he's sold 2 guitars (and who knows if he accepted lower offers). For somebody that's probably more known as the guy from that one Rick Beato video...

    No. The chip shortage is not good for the businesses producing the chips. I've been in meetings with Texas Instruments reps where they're outlining how they plan to work around some of these issues by bringing their fab stateside and purchasing facilities in Utah. They are trying to reassure...

    The chip shortage is very real. Having to design electronics based on limited availability is a current challenge for just about every engineer in the business these days.
