...quieter, but far more civil than the old days.
Bummer... (probably explains the "quieter".)
(...perhaps someone should tinkle on the anthill!)

Additionally, on the risk/reward side... why counterfeit a guitar that retails for $249?
Same reason that nobody counterfeits $1 bills.

See: Mark Goffeney...

I had one of those MVP's from BroBobbyB.
Long story to go with that... ended up selling it to member exvol.

Happy way belated Dugly... are you AARP'd?

Yup, sucks more because they are both really good long time friends.
That doesn't have to change.
One is never required to take sides. Merely let them both know up front that you consider them both friends and therefore will not be taking sides.
Be Switzerland, (heh-heh... or Canada!)

It's like that with ALL bands. People are complex, people are individuals, (also complex individuals.)
You probably can't fix whatever their issues are with each other... but you can stay out of the middle of it.

Habeas felicitatem in die natus es! (If you're still alive...)
(...else; requiescat in pace.)

Guys, mea culpa... I think I got trigger happy... Pike, it's Wednesday the 7th?
Hmmm... premature felicitation!

Best B'day Pike... (they sure click by faster now, huh?)

Thanx y'all... never thought I'd live to see this one.

(Special thanx to CB for, once again, remembering.)

Absolutely Rocket...I don't know how may Bigsby tail pieces I've seen installed with stagnate bridges.  It's like buying a Slip & Slide and not hooking up the water!
Exactly!... then the players whine about rebounding off-pitch.

Although I'm guilty of owning a Custom Riviera with a Tune-O-matic. In defense, if I ever played it, I would have installed a roller.
It's destined for the 2012 CRUGE.

Very best birthday wishes for the one member who never forgets everyone else's...

(...and I won't even reveal the number!)

If installing a Bigsby, do yourself a serious favor... also replace tune-o-matic with a $30 roller bridge.
See StewMac.

I think someone is still angry because I refused to haggle for my J58 FOUR YEARS AGO.

Seriously, 4-years is WAY too long to hold a minor grudge like that... might be useful to seek some therapy. I'll guess anger management is not the only issue highlighted here.

BTW, I still have it that J58 (somewhere).
