    As much as I love Thunderbirds, and love the looks of Firebirds--I just don't care that much or the way they sound. Thunderbirds=Thick. Firebirds generally sound a little thin to me. Generally. But they sure look better than any guitar around!

    And it was. They cut rib eyes on premises. These are the “special” ribs after cutting out the rib eyes. If you like a prime ribeye over oak (or a top, or a filet) this is is the place. They have another location in Solvang that was featured in the movie Sideways. Very touristy. Don't bother. But the one in Casmalia has been our family favorite since 1968. Been there hundreds of times. California Central Coast dining at its best. Traditional basic salad, veggie tray, shrimp cocktail, garlic bread and main entree with choice of potato and ice cream or sherbet for desert. Perfect way to complete a THUNDERBIRD day.

    Er... No it doesn't feel good! But not doing it eventually feels worse. Having tried both, I like temporary tired and sore better.

    Same as tort. Great for lunch. Not so good for music.

    We cannibalize zombie Jesus on a weekly basis if you think about it too much. So you are clearly an infidel if you cannot use that line 52 times a year. Get with it!

    Then build a FirePaul. Or something like that. FireSG? If you do not like thin sounding, it won't be a Firecaster of any kind.

    Outstanding! I would like a '56 or '57 with the v-shaped neck. But it is highly unlikely to ever happen. I played one and my hands loved it.

    So how would you describe someone that had a $1000.00 USD every Friday night habbit of Crack that quits cold turkey and stays clean with no relapse ever?
