    First I read the meth lab bass post, now this. I’m speechless. It’s a historic day for TB.

    Excellent review as always.

    But, dude, fair warning, I ran into Mexican Charlie and he’s out looking for you. Asking if I seen you around. Seemed kind of on edge. More than he usually is.

    Shucks, I'm just a YouTube reviewer doing his duty, that's all.
    When I think "historic," I think about the Fab Four and such. But if you envision me up in there in the firmament, that's your prerogative, Sir.

    Mucho thanks for the heads up, I reckon I should carry something a little sharp and pokey lest I get caught empty-handed in an ambush.

    I also feel compelled to clarify my use of the moniker Mexican Charlie. People need to understand that I personally don't see race or color. I only call him that to differentiate him from Black Charlie, who moves in the same circles.
    Always striving for clarity here!

    Epiphone? I always thought that was just a typo for Epiphany. Thanks to your sleuthing I now know the backstory and am a richer man for it.

    Speaking of an epiphany, I think I just experienced one. At least I think I did. But that raises a question in itself. If you have never had an epiphany (well, a documented epiphany- complete with bona fides) how can one be sure that they are actually having one? I mean, maybe that gas station sushi wasn't quite right, and I'm not having an epiphany at all? Or, what if I was already well versed in the topic I believe I am having an epiphany about, but I had just forgotten about it. Does that still count, or does it really belong on the retread heap?

    So, as you can see, I'm kinda confused. But that reminds me about another question that's been bothering me. Do you think that insane people are self aware? Like when they are wandering around conducting their affairs, do you think that they say to themself "Self, I am so off my rocker that I make GG Allin look like an altar boy". I don't know. Maybe that was a bad analogy. Anyway, Happy New Cello Day!

    I would have to look up "epiphany" to fully address your question, and while I like ya, my name ain't "Let me google that for you."
    What I CAN say in extemporaneous mode is what epiphany means to me personally, and that's the "Epiphany Lightfoot" character as played by Lisa Bonet in Angel Heart. Oh Mama!
    Hope that helps.

    Ahhh. I know her. I'm a bigger fan of her uncle, Gordon Lightfoot. So many memories listening to his lp's.

    That's the feller that wrote the song about the ship sinking? Damn, that's a long one. Takes almost seven minutes for that ship to sink.
    You'd think if a bunch of fellers were gonna sink, and another feller wanted to salute them in song, he'd make the length more radio-friendly.

    "Edmund Fitzgerald" (Yes, I Googled it for you) shoulda been done more like this Beach Boys number, both in feel and duration. But with boats, not cars

    Well, boats are kinda slow and cars are pretty quick. But you know what are really fast? Airplanes. Seems like Don McLean kinda missed the boat on that one, too.

    BTW, TIL that there is someone who dislikes Mike Love as much as me. Brian Wilson.

    Oh man, that song is about a boat? I always thought it was about some guy named Ed Fitzgerald that couldn’t swim very well. I would think that’s what you get for swimming out in the middle of Lake Superior (or Gitchigumi as GL called it) in a storm. Explains a lot, thanks!

  13. That's the best EB-0 review I've ever seen.

  14. You should have gotten the model that goes to 11, (well worth the extra $5) then you could have heard it even on a 1 watt amp or unplugged.


    THEY ARE LOUD! :jawdrop:

    Nothing easier in this world than spending someone else's money. Five bucks is five bucks.

    I'm going to stand firmly behind Wobble here and agree that Charlie and the Mexican Van axle clearly take priority.

  17. Good call.
    If he is short $5 again he looses his left hand and that would render the bass useless. :(

    Hi,

    I'm just kinda digging Mr. Wobble's schtick, very amusing. I'm looking for the other hundred shows.


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    Your uptick means the world to me, Cliff. I've been reading your gig reports since I was a boy. Hope to still be playing at your age, you're an inspiration! :thumbsup::bassist:

    Hi!

    You are very kind to this old country bass player.

    The best advice I can give any whippersnapper, besides "Stay off my lawn", is "Don't get old!"

    Thank you for your indulgence,
