  1. Re: Geico commercial with basketball player

    There was a series of these back in 2012-2013. You can look through this thread, but most of them have been taken down. :(

    From iSpot.tv (my go-to for such things), with some help from my fuzzy...

    Re: How to practice Circle of 5ths

    Never ... until now. :whistling:
  3. Re: Unique Ball End to Loop End conversion

    Interesting approach, but still erroneous, inefficient, and ... well, goofy. In order to put both strings of one course on one ball, the ball must be removed from one of the strings. If you've...

    It appears thou hast misconstrued, sir. 'Tis not Simon, but Dagger, who's a-soarin' on the cittern. :mandosmiley:

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Thanks for that! This thread or sidebar was a revelation for me, and I'll wager for others, as well. I never knew of these aspects of J. Geils' music until now. In fact, even though his name was on...
  8. Re: Why did Gibson return to Paddleheads after Snakeheads?

    Holy wow! :disbelief: That is what is called a precipitous dropoff. So for that entire decade, 1500 A-1s (exactly - how about that?) and a total of ten all other models. That's in the neighborhood of...
  9. Re: Why did Gibson return to Paddleheads after Snakeheads?

    Well, thank you for that! I wish you'd offered it sooner, would have kept things cooler around here. I'm astonished they had that much in extra parts just - what, collecting dust? - doesn't make...
  10. Re: Why did Gibson return to Paddleheads after Snakeheads?

    Thanks for that. I agree with you - he certainly did yeoman's work researching, sorting, and compiling what must have been a daunting amount of material, and deserves compensation for his efforts. I...
  11. Re: Why did Gibson return to Paddleheads after Snakeheads?

    Someone once defined fashion as being something you wouldn't be caught dead wearing next year. ;) (Probably not a philosopher.)
  12. Re: Why did Gibson return to Paddleheads after Snakeheads?

    And I did, sir, provide you with some numbers, derived from doing some research using the best of my limited resources. As I later stated, these are estimates. And I asked you if you have some...
  13. Re: Why did Gibson return to Paddleheads after Snakeheads?

    Thanks for that. I was looking for an online version of Spann's or a pdf in order to formulate a more accurate estimate. There are some 300-400 A models in the Archive dating from this period, but of...
  14. Re: Why did Gibson return to Paddleheads after Snakeheads?

    Hundreds. Maybe a thousand, maybe two thousand. Do you know? Then share your information. We're trying to answer a question here, not start an argument.
  15. Re: Why did Gibson return to Paddleheads after Snakeheads?

    That may have been true at first, but I seriously doubt they had 4-5 years' worth of stock on hand.

    I did a little spelunking in the Cavern of Confusion - ie, Gibson history - because I was...

    Re: What do you keep your picks and stuff in?

    Right? What in the world? :disbelief:

    If you ask me, that is overkill. What's the point of having so many picks? :confused: Pricey ones, at that. I know, no one asked me ... :whistling:

    Re: Pandemic Reading

    Well, sir, I have news for you. My search skills aren't that great either, though they serve me fairly well, much of the time. They did this time.

    It turns out there is indeed a thread about it....

    This is very random, and is not a sighting per se but a hearing, and in fact a sort of mis-hearing ... But it provided a chuckle, and I wanted to share it, but not start a thread just on account of...

    Right, no video - as expected. BUT some youtube "videos" - live recordings - which surprised me immensely. :disbelief: Even a few from the Royal Festival Hall 9/24/1969, their first time playing...

    The worm gears are in the opposite direction of the 1931 in Post #11.

    And it's not a Gibson.

    Re: Pandemic Reading

    Quite so, on both counts. I suggest people enjoy this, if it's the sort of thing they do, quickly, before it disappears. Politics, vulgarity - both interdicted here.

    Eh? That's for the wallet. :confused:

    When I wore jeans, I'd use the watch pocket. That's the mini-pocket on one corner of the right front pocket, meant for a pocket watch. Now that watches are...
