Yep... our shop is the same way... lots of electronic gear (rents to local bands), but not much of a inventory of guitars/banjos/bass/etc. No need anyways, everyone goes to Guitar center for that

OM45GE - Posted - 04/25/2017:  12:47:10


I don't like shopping at Guitar Center. It's just not enjoyable to me.

DeanT - Posted - 04/25/2017:  16:43:24


yeah... I get a headache in there... too many teenagers bangin-de-drums 

OM45GE - Posted - 04/26/2017:  04:48:28


I've bought most of my instruments from private sellers. 

DeanT - Posted - 04/26/2017:  10:08:50


Me too, except I got my Goodtime Americana off Amazon...

OM45GE - Posted - 04/26/2017:  10:31:48


I've got someone asking about my Stelling. I wasn't planning to sell it, but there's a guitar I've go my eyes on, so maybe...

DeanT - Posted - 04/26/2017:  14:16:32


I'd sell my Gibson in a heartbeat, if someone wanted it. It's beat up a lot, so probably not too desirable.

OM45GE - Posted - 04/27/2017:  03:03:05


The Stelling is in great shape. Sadly, I think the guitar I'm interested in is sold. ☹️

DeanT - Posted - 04/27/2017:  05:20:59


I'd never sell my Telecaster

OM45GE - Posted - 04/27/2017:  11:41:26


I may be selling my Stratocaster too if you know anyone who might be interested. It's a 1993 reissue of a 1962 Strat. Nearly mint with all the case candy included. 

DeanT - Posted - 04/27/2017:  12:14:40


Am I the only person with beat up instruments? laugh My Tele has tons of soul...

OM45GE - Posted - 04/27/2017:  17:45:14


I'm pretty careful with my instruments. Stuff happens for sure and there are dings and scratches to prove it. I just try to keep them to a minimum.

DeanT - Posted - 04/27/2017:  18:33:01


I think I get too crazy sometimes :) And I don't even drink anymore!

OM45GE - Posted - 04/28/2017:  02:34:54


Have you ever smashed a guitar?



youtu.be/pzeoLe6nSrU

DeanT - Posted - 04/28/2017:  11:19:39


Hell NO!!! I can't stand it when people do

OM45GE - Posted - 04/28/2017:  12:06:24


Back when I was playing bass, I had a nice Fender Jazz bass. We used to practice in the drummer's finished basement. One of my band mates thought it would be funny to throw the bass (in the case) down the stairs to me. It hit about halfway down, the case popped open and the Fender hit the stairs twice before hitting the floor and snapping off the neck. One of the horns was broke off too. That's the only guitar I've ever smashed.

DeanT - Posted - 04/28/2017:  17:01:39


I hope he paid to repair it! My instruments get used and abused, but lovingly... I've never broke one

OM45GE - Posted - 04/28/2017:  19:04:47


Nope. They said it would cost more to fix it than it was worth. I had a cheap bass that I used for a while.  That band broke up and I switched to lead guitar in the next band. 

DeanT - Posted - 04/29/2017:  07:04:54


I'm actually looking forward to not playing in a band someday. It's fun but becomes a grind...

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/29/2017:  11:51:28


I enjoy music more when I don't HAVE to play, just when I want, and then not always the same tunes like when gigging. But I do like doing the odd gig with other musicians.

OM45GE - Posted - 04/29/2017:  11:57:47


I completely agree. It's so much more fun when you don't have to do it.

DeanT - Posted - 04/29/2017:  16:41:55


I'm passing up a jam tonight, because I spend most of the afternoon working on the bands set for next month. I'm in burn-out mode.... 

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/29/2017:  17:37:35


I used to hear " if you make a hobby your life's work you'll always be happy". Not so sure about that. I played four-nighters for a while in the '70's and got pretty bored with it after the 2nd week.

OM45GE - Posted - 04/29/2017:  17:55:17


I had an uncle (RIP) who was an incredible photographer. He made a pretty good living at it but quit because he said he got to where he couldn't stand to look at a camera. He went to work in a paper mill and after a year or so started taking pictures again. 

DeanT - Posted - 04/29/2017:  18:20:05


I overhauled Air Force jet engines my whole career. It was like a hobby on steroids... I never worked a day in my life, and it never got old. Playing music has become more work than my career ever was!

OM45GE - Posted - 04/30/2017:  13:12:08


I loved my job of the last 20 years until five years ago when the company mi worked for was bought out by a huge company. Now I can't wait to retire. 

DeanT - Posted - 04/30/2017:  13:58:05


retirement is even harder, you never have time for anything, because there is too much to do!

OM45GE - Posted - 04/30/2017:  16:15:17


It sounds tough, but someone's got to do it!

DeanT - Posted - 04/30/2017:  17:07:52


at least it's all stuff you want to do!

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/01/2017:  01:00:03


I love the four months I take off now, but not sure if I'd like it year round.

OM45GE - Posted - 05/01/2017:  03:28:43


I'm looking forward to finding out. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/01/2017:  09:58:06


You get to do all the stuff you always wanted to do... but there's so much to do... you don't have enough time for it all!!!

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/02/2017:  14:58:21


I'd miss going places

DeanT - Posted - 05/02/2017:  16:17:25


I miss the donuts in the break room every morning...

I'll have even more time to go places!  

DeanT - Posted - 05/03/2017:  11:22:34


and stay as long as you want...

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/03/2017:  11:44:49


If I really hated my job I'd definitely retire.

OM45GE - Posted - 05/03/2017:  13:29:26


It's going to happen. Definitely in November and maybe sooner.

DeanT - Posted - 05/03/2017:  15:51:54


I didn't want to retire, but the AF closed my shop, and it was either retrain/move, or retire. I had just paid off my house, so it was an easy decision. 

OM45GE - Posted - 05/04/2017:  02:58:01


I used to think I would never retire because I loved my job. Then the company I loved working for was sold to a huge French conglomerate. They've screwed things up so badly that I hate working here. It's definitely time to go as soon as I tidy up some financial things. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/04/2017:  05:46:56


are they going to beg you to stay?

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/04/2017:  07:43:45


That happens with trucking companies as well- Celadon bought out a couple of smaller Canadian companies that were good to work for. Now I hear nothing but complaints from drivers caught in the takeover. Yellow and Roadway merged and bought out Winnipeg-based Reimer. Pretty soon there won't be any small companies left.

OM45GE - Posted - 05/04/2017:  11:56:26


I just met with my boss this morning. She agrees with me about what it's like to work here but she's still committed to trying to fix things. That said, she understands my frustrations and did indeed beg me to stay for a while longer. I didn't commit to anything.

DeanT - Posted - 05/04/2017:  16:03:39


Please stay 5 more years.....

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/04/2017:  16:28:13


They'll have to rip the keys out of my arthritic hands....

OM45GE - Posted - 05/05/2017:  03:11:40


They'll be lucky if I give them five months. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/05/2017:  04:44:14


you'll miss your Christmas bonus...

OM45GE - Posted - 05/05/2017:  07:25:08


I'd have to stay until next March to get my bonus. I'm not sure I can hold out that long.

DeanT - Posted - 05/05/2017:  10:05:08


Ask for a raise...

OM45GE - Posted - 05/05/2017:  15:22:39


LOL. That's a great idea.
