  1. Some Gibson acoustics? As in, more than one? Post some pics and we’ll let you know what you got, approximate value etc. But yes, Gibsons generally are fine guitars.
  2. Here’s another article about counterfeit pills. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1261280 And these two articles from the Philadelphia Inquirer are worth reading. Last year in Philadelphia, 81% of overdose deaths were attributed to Fentanyl which has practically replaced all other opioids in the city. https://www.inquirer.com/health/opioid-addiction/pressed-pills-philadelphia-fentanyl-overdose-crisis-20210123.html https://fusion.inquirer.com/philly/health/fentanyl-synthetic-opioid-drug-overdoses-philadelphia-pennsylvania-20181024.html-2
  3. I’m sure there are some cases where dealers are “lacing” Xanax with fentanyl in the methods described above, but that’s not what’s happening with most of these pills. These are counterfeit pills coming from across the border. They’re being mass produced and made to look like Xanax, Oxycodone and other “downers”, but they’re Fentanyl and in most cases don’t even contain traces of the drugs that they look like. Fake Adderall are being made with meth too. https://www.google.com/amp/mynbc15.com/amp/news/nation-world/dea-fake-pills-from-mexico-flooding-the-black-market-08-13-2020 This recen
  4. New Jack died of a heart attack today in North Carolina.
  5. This right here. Unless you want a Strat specifically with a V profile neck, then go with the blonde. And please don’t pay $500 for a reliced Affinity Strat. You can make that guitar yourself for $150-200 including the Duncan JB in the bridge.
  6. There’s a special place in hell for guitar thieves. I’ll keep my eyes out on CL and eBay. Did not know you were a Tokai guy, Al Bundy!
  7. Another thanks for the pics! What were some of the lower priced guitars you saw there? I saw a couple of 70s Strats in the $4k range in your pics. Was that pretty much the lower end or did you see anything in the $2k-$4k range? And do you know if the 58, 59 and 60 bursts were for sale? I noticed they didn’t have prices on them. Man, those Tele Customs make my heart race. Also, were there amps for sale too or just guitars?
  8. I’m pretty sure that’s a poly finish on that Tele. It’s just referred to as a gloss finish online. Most MIM is poly, although Fender does (or did?) a lacquer finish on some of their MIM reissue models. The lacquer definitely feels and wears different than their standard poly finish, but Fender will usually put the word “lacquer” in the model name and charge you extra for it.
  9. I’m a fan of the compensated saddles as well. I’ve put them on several Squier Classic Vibe Teles over the years, and the 50s Tele I just got already had a set of them too. Would that work on NoHarley’s guitar though? Looks like his Tele has a six saddle bridge.
  10. Where are you located? I saw this exact same guitar for sale in San Antonio a couple days ago. Guy wants $600 for it, says it’s brand new, still has stickers on it and plastic on the pickguard. https://sanantonio.craigslist.org/msg/d/san-antonio-fender-player-telecaster-hh/7298421184.html
  11. Yep, it’s probably the one you saw. Got it on Craigslist. Came with a hardshell Fender case and upgraded with Texas Special pickups. You know me well, Deej! And Hulla, it’s pretty clean but not as clean as it appears. A previous owner had tried to relic the poly paint job by taking some steel wool to the body to take off the shine and also put a buncha deep scratches all over the body. I used some rubbing compound, scratch and swirl remover and polish to bring it back to a nice shine, but some of the scratches are still visible if you look closely. It plays great and I got it for a great
  12. I’ll play. Here’s my latest Tele. Picked this one up a couple days ago. It’s a MIM Classic 50s reissue.
  13. Forget the symmetry or lack thereof. That pic is missing a Tele.
