    For the 70s, you’d almost need three playlists. So much great 70s music... funk, disco, arena rock, hard rock, punk, prog, glam, Dolly Parton...

    I want a guitar built only on the funk and disco days.

    Can I come work in your area?

    For J. Geils, you can pull out the live version of "Sanctuary" from the live album from the Freeze Frame tour, "Showtime!". It's a rip-roarer.

    Man, wouldn’t it be something if PRS could land someone like Nile with a hard tail version of the Mayer S-style?

    The good news is that they like the music that made us (and coincidentally was made before they were born). I don't know if you despised your parents' music as much as I did (50's RnR and "easy listening" (barf...)) but I'm glad I wasn't part of a lametastic generation of music.

    I mean we could be on an accordion forum here if we had the simple misfortune of being born a couple of decades earlier FFS...

    Lollers, if I were able to pick the days my guitar was built, it would be to avoid disco. Not that I'm saying you should, I think it would be a good mojo match for you. Of course, if I got to pick my mojo, my guitar would most likely be schizophrenic, because I like everything from synthpop to prog.

    EDIT: I was recently challenged to pick my favourite song from the 80s -- this isn't even half:

    I would imagine that exposure to disco in utero could enhance top end clarity in some models, but is it worth risks?

    Most of the people in the non-private stock areas of the finish hall are between 25-35 years old (I'm 35), but we have some outliers that push the full range from 20-50. There were times when younger people thought that covers of these songs were the originals (Marylin Manson's Personal Jesus, for example) or only knew these songs from other media ranging from advertising to the the radio stations in GTA: Vice City. On the other hand, a 22yr old co-worker had seen REO Speedwagon, Styx and a few others live.

    Just imagine what Private Stock could be doing to push the boundaries of accordion technology

    I've heard a lot of covers of 80's songs myself, many that I like better than the originals. I didn't realize Personal Jesus was a cover... Ooopsie! But then I was never even remotely into Depeche Mode.

    Great documentary on BBC about Nile Rodgers recently, he claims the strat has been responsible for billions of $ in hit records. Would be so good to see him playing a PRS, he likes his semi-hollows too.
