White's a tough stick anyway. One of the new ones has white highlights, but even without 'em it looks great.

A few of my tattooed friends feel the same way re: physical confidence. I'd like to lose a bit of weight, too...but these recent tattoos just make me feel like I'm not a hideous chud.

Picked up another guitar from Craigslist yesterday. I was looking for a smaller, lighter semi-hollow to replace my Epiphone Dot. (I like the Dot, but the size and weight bother my shoulders.) Scored a one month old PRS SE Custom Semi-Hollow, with all accessories, for $400. (Street price is $700.) Plays like butter. The guy had it strung with GHS Boomer 9's, and had the action set really low.

Good buy my friend! I'm loving my SE Custom 24 :) 

 

How's the tone from the semi-hollow PRS? Is it as warm/thick as the dot? The body is a lot smaller so I'm curious on how the sound is.

Legs I'm filling up from local guys and it's a ton of fun.

 

Great looking ink.  I agree it can be addicting.  Thinking of getting another, but this time one with my two boys.  The pain can give a nice high if you know what I mean.

TY!  I'm really new at photography but it's really amazing what you can do with a shallow depth of field :D  Any tips/suggestions are greatly appreciated.  I already found out Pro Tip No. 5 -- the camera won't shoot when the battery needs recharging :D

Hey Chamsalot, 

 

I'm still learning as well! I think the best way to learn is to just do :) 

 

Keep taking pictures and experiment!

I fully agree with this. Also, reading the manual in it's entirety is a good initial step. For composition I mostly recommend just practicing, but there are some good books out there, my favorite that I've seen is "The Complete Photographer" by Tom Ang.

The sound isn't as "fat" as the Dot, but at the same time it has a very warm sound, and you can get a surprising range of tones from it. I'm still getting it dialed in on my Egnater amp, but so far I'm really liking this guitar a lot. The Dot is a great guitar, but it's pretty heavy, and it's killing my shoulders. The PRS only weigh six lbs, and is perfectly balanced. I'm probably going to wind up selling the Dot to a friend of mine, which will help finance the next guitar purchase. (There's always one more guitar, isn't there?)

^Nice bike!

 

The latest addition to the guitar collection: Epiphone Masterbilt EF-500RCCE. All solid woods, cedar top with rosewood body. I bought this for fingerstyle, got a good price on a refurb from eBay. Sweet sounding guitar, plays great. (My fingers are a bit sore, though - time to switch to electric for a couple days.)
