Brad isn't claiming that the Remington ammo boxes have anything to do with famous people or places. Big difference between that and what Fender's doing.

Also, as commenters pointed out, the seats in Hollywood Bowl were replaced in 1958 and again in 1981. Pardon me for doubting that these boards came from the original seats. I wouldn't believe it without provenance.

Hey, I still have enough walnut I bought in 1981 to build a guitar. It came from a tree chopped down by Dan'l Boone himself! (or maybe by Ed Ames with a tomahawk). It's true because I said so!

According to wikipedia, Gary Tibbs didn't join until early 1981, toward the end of Adam and the Ants. First came Andy Warren, followed by Leigh Gorman and Kevin Mooney.

I never had any interest in his band or his music one way or another. What I despise is his attitude. All he cares about is money, not music.

Fender and Gibson have made a lot of money selling sentimental boomer nonsense.

Now BOSS is getting into the act

I don't think Gene has ever been guilty of focusing on the music.  :P


Be fair, he was focusing on his bank balance.

Blondie.  :puke:

The list price is $2699 -- $500 more than a regular 4003. Not bad for checkerboard binding. They show 8 in stock, so it must be a very limited run.

A fool and his money are soon parted, but chances are that the buyer is hoping for a greater fool somewhere down the line.

I've never understood why Arsenio's popularity fell.

Right. Jack didn't do "in the groove."

Pretty. Too expensive for an LPB-2 even with the price reduction.

That's in great shape.

Makes sense. The design of the Hipshot and Babicz prevent that from happening, and the 2-point Hipshot can't tilt.

That sounds like it's straight out of a Bass Player magazine "review".  8)

Good point. All that's missing is "sounds like a (insert brand name here) on steroids!" and "plays like buttah!"
