74 today! Think I'll build a guitar!

Thank you! Things are definitely slowing down but there's still some gas in the tank.
I have the year-end banquet with our m/c race club this Saturday. Not sure but I think I'm the oldest active racer in our club. Most everybody else is well under 40 or early 40's. I love hanging with these youngsters, even moreso when I can almost still run close with them on the track! The only thing I have trouble with is when I take out a guitar at night and they want to hear some of that stuff they call music these days. I have no problem with alternative bands and progressive rock (not going to touch on the super bass boom box trunk stereo s**t :D ), but that's kinda hard for me to do solo.

I hear you. A recorded “song” isn’t so much written and performed as it is ASSEMBLED these days. I’d rather listen to Americana and Bluegrass.

That's why I stick to more simple easy listening singer/songwriter stuff in that type of gathering. I can run a small modeling amp with my generator and the 5th wheel in my pit area and just play and sing without getting really involved; or I can just play acoustically. Can throw in a few riffs and runs of some popular R&R songs but without more players and /or accompaniment devices it's hard to do. At least for me it is. Playing in the evening relaxes me, I don't want to do a full gear thing, I'm there primarily to race, not gig.

Me too. I like everyone from Hal Ketchum to Alison Krauss to Ruth Moody.to Randy Travis.

I do play rock (and blues)...but I don't listen to it much unless it's Jeff Beck or some other genius.

Well the Roasted Swamp Ash body came yesterday and the new Warmoth neck fits perfectly!

I've only just received them so I'm playing around with pickguard colors today.

I have this old celluloid brown tortoise that's brand new. I like it!


This red tortoise pickguard is a nice look too.
White perloid would look much better! But, really digging the body and neck even as is.
