Because I do think you mentioned he was selling them, right after he purchased them from you.

A brand new pair of the (e) model would be nice!


It doesn't look like these are going to be going anywhere....at least anytime soon. The PS1000 are bad to the bone. Warren's guitar has never sounded better.:atsmile:Thanks Jay!!

Was ready to be considerate to my colleagues (I use my ps1k in the office) and get a LCD-XC, then news of the e-series came along.

 

Then found a dealer who is giving a 15% discount on Grados, including the new ones, although stocks only coming in early Jul.

 

The head says to be nice to others and try something new; while the heart wants more of that grado goodness.

 

Decisions, decisions, decisions

Bireli Lagrene gets my vote for all around best guitarist. For a jazz guitarist he's no slouch rock n roller. For those who don't know him:

 

 

With Pastorius on bass:

 

 

Some jazzed flamenco:

 

And something completely different, just because:

Not technically a 'great' player I know, but if we're talking guitarists, I love a bit of Neil Young

He rocks! Being a great guitarist is more than playing well...some guys seem to be able to inject so much emotion into their playing. It's one of the main reasons I love the grado sound so much, as to me they translate the tone and emotion better than most

I'm also a huge fan of bola Sete (he did some killer bossa nova albums with Vince Guaraldi) and I'm really enjoying a newer artist named Nick Waterhouse lately.

+1 and well said about Neil Young.

For me, Zappa, Robert Fripp, Rory Gallagher are tops.  But Tony Iommi is my Hendrix!

My favorite currently active guitar player is Guthrie Govan. Among other projects, he's currently in the band "The Aristocrats" with Bryan Beller and Marco Minnemann. All three members are fantastic talents.

If you're a fan of Prog or Rock/Jazz hybrids, definitely worth checking out.

Iommi is so amazing. As a metalhead, he is to be revered! Metal has produced a ton of amazing guitar heroes...

Since were on favorites, my favorite is Kurt cobain, for the pure emotion in the playing and the amazing pop hooks injected into such raw punk, every song is a memorable riff.

t-t-t-t-talkin' 'bout my generation.....roughly the same age is Kurt would have been or Chris Cornell of Soundgarden.......

 

I love the way Neil Young can go from folk to country tinged rock to raw garage. Also credited as being the godfather of grunge. So, in some ways there is a link between Neil Young and Kurt Cobain.

 

Also as a metal guy, this year I put together a proper "digital rock library" for my Sonos system and bought a bunch of classic rock, alternative, etc. that I always liked, owned when I was younger, etc. but didn't own.

 

 

 

I had some Neil Young-but not hat much of his earlier stuff.

 

I know this is super well known-but for anyone wanting a place to start, this double disc is the way to go...just an amazing body of work here. This has become a favorite compilation of mine. I think it's really well done of his first jaw dropping decade in music that I would argue rivals, the Stones, Clapton, even the Beatles:

35. Long May You Run

 

Amazon says:

Amazon.com

The first stop for anybody new to Neil Young's music, this 34-song set (originally released in 1977) traces his growth from Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young to Crazy Horse to his Harvest band, the Stray Gators. The album defined Young to rock radio the way Hot Rocks determined which Rolling Stones songs would become classics, but this is more than a quickie greatest-hits collection. Rarities and hits--Springfield's "Mr. Soul," CSNY's "Ohio," and Young's "Cinnamon Girl," "Heart of Gold," and the closing "Long May You Run"--develop in thematic and chronological patterns. --Steve Knopper
