  1. Mix Prevention Officer seems to fit the ones I know.
  2. Well there's a solution without a problem. Just wrap some 1200 grit round a plug and get on with your day!
  3. As I usually play with a cymbal stand wedged up me chute while being repeatedly stabbed in the right armpit by a Les Paul headstock you know what you can do with all that smilin' and gaddin' about, quite frankly.
  4. It certainly wouldn't fit in my 308!
  5. Careful...they'll be wanting the vote next!
  6. On the plus side, that's fantastic double bass technique!
  7. Should anyone else need a nudge on blank boards, they feck guitarists right off!
  8. I have a Korg Pitchclip living on the bridge of my EUB, does a great job.
  9. So wait...Yamaha dream up a price-fixing scam with GAK, shop them for it, and get off with nary a slap? Nice going, Yamaha!
  10. If there's a screw (usually an allen head) on the bottom end of the bit you turn, then it's more than likely not reversible, if it looks like a mushroom shape it might be. The only way to tell is to pull one to bits and find out, really. Edit: I have an SR5 (around 99/00 build) and they look like they should be switchable - the end of the shaft is machined flat just to make me look daft after writing the above! It had strings not long ago, so I've no plans to mess with it yet.
  11. Mine did the same thing when I ran 2 devices off the same power supply, so it's more likely that side of things.

    Seiko SSC021

    Remaining watch withdrawn for now as the mod bug has bitten. Ceramic bezel already fitted, sapphire ordered!

    Seiko SSC021

    No. 31 sold, No. 46 (the one with the spare NATO) still available.
  14. Clever type Janina Ramirez is the owner of a lefty P, I'm told.
  15. Definitely in the 'no' camp over here (classless, unmusical, etc...) but I bloody love it when it's played on what it should be played on - trebley skinny guitars.
  16. We had some fisties break out in front of us a few years ago as we were lining up to play the second half. Singist (who is a long time primary teacher) utterly nonchalantly grabs his mic, and with appropriate over-the-top-of-the-specs stare and expertly wielded forefinger..."Right, you two, sit down." Halfway through the first verse I was trying not to overtly snigger, as it was dawning on them that they didn't quite know why or how they were sat down.
  17. As to pub gigs - there's no real reward in it other than diesel and an illicit Tunnocks biccy on the way home. 90% of them are a logistical nightmare, usually no car park or load-ins through 18 inch doors, added to the fact that drummers can't seem to grasp the concept of their mountain of cases taking up space you could otherwise be standing in. An indifferent crowd will make you question your very sanity regarding all of the above. A good crowd that wants to get involved will make you beg for the next one.
  18. I've seen a guitarist spend that long 'setting up' a f****** distortion pedal!
  19. Some stuff from the vaults (well, my car, anyway!) Were this lot just too obvious?
  20. My sympathies - I've had extensor tendon grafts in my right hand 3rd finger from not too dissimilar an injury. Follow the advice of your physios (regarding the prevention of internal scarring) to the absolute extreme and you'll be as you were save a sexy conversation piece on the back of your hand.
  21. No idea, but George Lynch is behind the curtain of this, if that's of any help.
