I spent some time setting up my tremolo bridge to float, and I adjusted the action (raised it a bit). Oh man, it's so sweet now! I put a bit of Nut Sauce on the nut and this baby stays in tune so well now, even if I yank and wank! :D

Myra and I got called in last minute for a gig tonight. Turns out the scheduled artist stole money and a car from someone at the establishment.... :bravo: so he is in jail, facing 9 different charges.... so we got the gig, neeeneer neeener neeener!

I'll be sporting my Suhr of course, and maybe my Tele (I'm bringing it as a backup) if any tunes call for it. I hope to get some photos taken since I have some pals coming and I've got my camera there.

The artist stole a car?? So who was scheduled to play, Winona Ryder?

I don't know, all that money and you're bringing a backup! Tsk, tsk :)

It's always nice to get the new guitar out of the house and earning its keep.

Haha, the guy who was supposed to play there must have major issues... maybe it really was Winona, I dunno.

I just came back from the gig and it was fun. I got lots of oooohs and aaaaaahs for my guitar tone! Several people asked what gear I was using to get that tone.

I brought the Tele as a backup but never needed it of course! Still, I like to bring a backup guitar in case a string breaks or something.

The other good thing with this gig is that we probably are getting a New Year's Eve gig out of it. They asked us right away if we were available, so suhr, why not!?

Congrats Robert, it must have been good.

It "suhr-ly" must have been! :rotflmao:

Congrats on the new gig! Just remember it's that ball in Times Square that drops as the new year comes in, not your ax! Have a great time, Robert! :AOK:

Sounds great, and you got another gig, too!
Which amph/amphs did you use?

Awesome, your new guitar seems to be a real good luck charm :)

Looks like it was a fun gig! I like the look of that Mack amph sitting on top of the cab back there too, and of course your new guitar looks great. I just wish there was some sound to go along with those pics, but thanks for sharing the pics anyway.

The drummer actually recorded the gig with his video camera. I will try and get a copy of it.
