    sweet..... Let us know how you like the newer EMG x pups. And I assume you have the 18 volt Haz in it.

    "What you talking about Willis?" ;) I retired and moved south...It might be only an hour south, but we moved south.:D Why move away from a good thing? Clean air, clean & crystal sparkling water, trout river fishing in our backyard, elk, whitetail, black bear, wild turkey, grouse etc...in our very backyard, and Ski slopes 1/2 mile out our front door. Lakes & waterways everywhere. Low population. What's there not to like?:smug:

    :laugh::roflmao: Actually I believe mowing still wins out on snowblowing...even though mowing season is shorter but just grows FAST. Thankfully snow doesn't grow...plus we have a 63" snowblower mounted on tractor front makes snowblowing easy, fast & effortless, so I can get back to playing my Spector basses.:)

    HUH, almost 12 foot of snow! How many days is everyone snowed in each year and what does the city do with all of it when cleaning off the roadways? I guess you would have to keep everything clear and have a taller vehicle than the Corvette to get around my friend...

    Yeah our average annual snowfall is 141" here in Gaylord...we didn't realize that we were moving into the highest snowfall area in the state of Michigan. The city snowplows the snow into the center of the street mostly, then brings in HUGE frontloaders & dump trucks to move the snow out of the city. 4 wheel or all wheel drive is a must to get about here in the winter. Or you just stay home. We're fortunate the county plow clears our country road from the city & past our home by 7am. The Vette doesn't get back on the road until May 1st.

    Very nice! If I only owned 1 Spector, the NS4 is without a doubt the way to go considering the infinite pickup combinations.

    A guy could go crazy trying to test everything out and then deciding which combinations to select...but...think of the tones someone who is recording could use!

    It's definitely beautiful country. We're in Ohio and most people we know go to the beach in VA, NC, or SC. We go to the beach in northern MI. The kids wear long pants and don't care.
