Okay…Thanks to all who came out and had a blast at the Gears show. It was really amazing and guess what? They said they want to do it again! Hooray for San Pedro! This month I’m blowin’ out the stock I have of AXL Badwater guitars. These babies have EMG Pickups and a very cool array of finish options. Once they’re gone that’s it! Only $129.00!!! And I’ll throw in free Fender Chord Book…there’s enough chords in this book to keep you busy for a hunded years!!! This month’s Pin-Up is the young and Rockin’ Guitar Safari Super Spokesmodel, Arielle in younger days. She’s probably about 15 years old when this shot was taken and playin’ the heck out of a 1936 National Duolian…what could be better than that?
As always, I do repairs ($30.00 per hr.) and set-ups ($45.00 per w/strings…that’s half the price of the other Local Yokels!) on all kinds of guitars and tube amp repair…get rid of that solid state, made to break, diposable junk and buy a real amp before there aren’t any left! Line 6 my ass! Why buy an amp that is trying so hard to sound like a real live tube powered amp? Guitar Center is like the Bush Administration selling you down the river with that crap. When it takes a dump…just throw it away! Because it costs more to fix it than to buy a new one. That’s just great! …and another thing, I have a friend named Cliff Wagner. He has a band called Old Number 7 and all you good folks need to get out of your little box and check this guy out. He’s got several records/Cds out and is a powerhouse when live. Good Time Bluegrass with a twist. He just finished making a SLASHER MOVIE SOUNDTRACK fer chrissakes! More on that to follow as details arrive to the Guitar Safari News Center. What else? Happy Birthday to Mahatma Gandhi!!!! Born October 2nd (Assassinated on January 30th, 1948) We really miss you! Oh yeah, make sure you take a bath after reading this because your hair kind of stinks.
