Jeffrey,
What are the specifics on your Drive amp? I forgot, you can probably read it right off the box thats in the closet. I know its perfect for learning/practicing on. Be good and take care, Dad.

Post subject: Re: Guitar Tab Sites

OK, I never have 'em all out of their cases at the same time but have been meaning to get a shot of the gang all together, so why not....as long as you can excuse the ugly corner of my unfinished basement.

Only hitch is, you gotta guess what they are....



...naww, just kiddin'. In no particular order, they are:

Extreme left: '66 Fender Jazzmaster...lots of sentimental value with this one, named her "Rita Mae" after the Clapton tune. Birthday present from my late Mom when I was 19 years old and drooling over it for a full month at the local dealer. She served as the main guitar for the funky ol' Instro Surf band who's name graces the drum set.

Extreme right: '63 Fender Jaguar, matching 3-color sunburst, bought a couple years later to augment the trad Fender surf sound for the band...picked this up from Norm's Rare Guitars in Reseda, Norm told me it was previously owned by Trini Lopez, not sure about that...never heard Trini play "Pipeline" anyway...nor "Banzai Washout"....

Inside left: Yur basic El-Cheazo Beater Strat. Picked up on sale at Baseline Music in San Berdoo for $149 back in the late 80's. Swapped the "Squier" neck with maple fretboard for a real unfinished Fender Strat neck that I finished & mounted, replaced the lead pickup with a cool little DiMarzio humbucker, and a little mini-toggle down by the lead tone knob...and cool rubber knobs to ditch the stockers. Probably the last time this thing was in it's case was when we last moved!

In back (on the very fancy drum seat): Standard inexpensive Yamaha Classical (G-231) since that's the style I started out with, thanks to Mel Bay. Had this one since college (early 80's) and it has the distinction of being the only guitar that's paid for itself, thanks to a friend's fiancee's Dad being a lawyer who was throwing a formal party to celebrate the opening of a new law office and who wanted some "atmosphere" music for their cocktail party. OK, so all I did was sit in the corner, drinking free Greyhounds, and played guitar for 3 hours without a cigarette...but, they insisted on paying me scale (!!!!) even though I ran out of material after about 45 minutes. When I dug a pick out of my pocket and resorted to improvised surf-classical no one even noticed (I don't think - I may have been drunk at the time). I remember this old guy stops his conversation with this ol' lady in pearls to turn around and give me the ol' highbrow appreciative nod right after I whipped out the intro to "Rumble at Waikiki"....I think he was convinced it was an unpublished Segovia piece....or maybe he probably had the orginal '45 by the Surfaris in his colleciton at home...

Inside Right: Fender/Squire "Master Series" M-80, truly is my very first, brand-spanking-new never-been-owned-by-anyone else REALLY NICE Eee-lectrical guitar - solid neck, Seymour Duncans, platinum hardware, hardtail (odd not having a tremolo but I like it). Has all the right touches and is very versatile. Christmas present from my wife and son just this last Xmas, and a very comfortable and just plain FUN little hot rod!

On left, Ampeg SS70 amp. Sadly, bought as a very inferior cheap replacement for my '65 blackface Super Reverb, which a buddy borrowed....and...yeah you guessed it......loaned to his buddy for an evening.....never to be seen again. Slowly, I squeezed his skull.......

Foreground....my ol' 60-somethng ('64 or '65) Fender Reverb unit....man has this thing been kicked and beat around (kicked for sure, at least once for every time we played Wipeout)!! Needs a new 6V6 tube (just has one I think) and needs a cap job pretty badly. Actually needs to be replaced with a reissue tweed unit.....yeah....and a new Hot Rod Deville tube amp....

The drumset...well......I was the only one in the band with a job (usually) at the time, so yeah I bought it. It actually traveled around a bit (why the head was never changed, I'll never know!) before it ended up getting shipped back to me eventually...keepin' it around in case a dire need arises for a surf band in Virginia.

Oh yeah the oddball orange thingy.....anyone know what it is? Smile

Something George Harrison forgot to take take with him Laughing

Geez Stoopy looks like your running a pawn shop. Some nice instruments there. Especially dig the 63 Jaguar.

Norms huh, great place. Only had the chance to go in there once with a friend many moons ago.

Thanks bud! Yeah it does look a bit junky, I know...they deserve a better gallery but they're also safe in their cases down in my basement, next to my stereo and my old LP's, which comes in handy when it's time to get energized. Would you believe that Jag was only $400 when I bought it at Norm's in the early 80's? At least I remember that being the price.

You can't hardly tell from the pic but it's still strung with some surf-sty'le heavies. Starting with a .14 to a wound third and a .60 on top. Still, the oddball pickups they put in Jags don't seem to have a lot of poop to 'em. The Jazzmaster though, when strung with those, with that long-scale neck and soap bar pickups, has a beautiful, booming, big bad BOSS voice it sings with, just an incredible tone. She has lighter strings now and seriously needs a fret job - they both do.

That ugly thing... George Harrison...LMAO! Neither George or Ravi Shankar would want anything to do with it.... it's called (according to the label) a "Troholipee" or "Beach Guitar".....although I never saw one at the beach in all my years. It's essentially a ridiculously exaggerated Ukelele that's all but untunable due to the oversize pegs. Gift from one of the Del Quad fans (our other fan bought something for the drummer).

Dig your Tele, as always!! Hey you know, one thing we could try is getting together on Teamspeak and setting the mic levels real high, and we could do a live 3-hour Tex-Mex/Blues/Surf/Junior Brown/Jazz Odyssey-exploration thing during one of the Com-C Sunday Flights.....get banned from the boards here probably even...
