    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    i think it was $300, but i'll have to check. Not local to me, but near my father who had the guitar at the time.

    That seems reasonable. I'll have to ask around Austin -- I'm sure there's someone here that does good refinish work.

    Plugged my hand held synth looper into the amp with a nice rock drum pattern and played along to my guitar assignment (Space Oddity) for 30 minutes. Really makes you watch your rhythms and chord change timing and I'm loving it all works together.

    I'll try next week. Right now I'm sort of occupying part of our lounge area but I plan to set up shop in one of our spare bedrooms over the next 10 days. It will eventually become my home recording studio.

    Any Amazon recs for a sturdy but not overpriced guitar stand?

    Don't be jealous as I highly doubt StephenHero would approve.

    I like this one, it holds electrics and acoustics and will give you some room for expansion! :)

    In a dedicated area, I like to have my guitars hanging and off the floor. It makes for a cool display, they don't get bumped as often, they seem easy to grab and play, it is easy to clean around them, etc...

    There are numerous styles in various woods if you like that look. Some let you choose the wood and finish. Or, for a more contemporary look go with something simple and black. Here are a few examples. You can see a lot more by simply doing a search for "guitar hanger". I like simple smaller ones. That way you don't see them when they are holding a guitar.

    i have a few wall hangers lingering around at home. I haven't put them up because i don't believe that my walls have the integrity to hold them.

    I have mine hanging as well. In apartments I find getting things off the floor and onto walls makes it seem like you have so much more space. I didn't think mine had the integrity to hold either, but it has been there for a long time now with no problems. I put dowels in to strengthen.

    PSG, thanks for the idea. I'll see how the room turns out and might use that idea. I need to accommodate a filing cabinet and two large bookcases so I'll see what sort of wall space I end up with.

    I've owned this style before. It is a typical 80's style. I replaced all of those with this style guitar stand. There is no neck support to catch when grabbing the instrument. They also fold to a more compact size.

    You have to be careful with some of the rubber and such that they use on those stands and hooks. It is best to put a cloth between the guitar and the stands because it tarnishes nitro finishes pretty quickly.
