My guys debating admission to the club of that white Fender bass in the back, purchased from Cornflake.
Great! I’ll need something easy to set up when I get banned from here and need to set up my own site, LOL.
I just remembered that I actually did get banned from a chatroom one time. It was a phone sex workers’ chatroom out of the Netherlands. No lie. It was real professional and all, earnest, serious discussion on how much to charge, what to do if a guy asks for “just a few more seconds,” tax issues, that kind of thing. Zero vulgarity. No photos (And I checked.) Plumbers’ forums are more risqué than this place was.
They finally kicked me out for joking around too much. Sheesh. Kinda hurt my feelings. But I recovered.
Don’t ask how I found the site. I really don’t remember and, whatever the answer to that is, it’s bound to be embarrassing. 😐
Absolutely spot on, Rob. That’s a reproduction of an 1840s Johann Anton Stauffer guitar, of the sort that Mauro Giuliani and Franz Schubert played. The design of the Viennese guitars incorporated a free-floating fretboard after Stauffer made the “Legnani model” for ace virtuoso and Paganini concert partner Luigi Legnani, who requested an elevated board like a violin. It’s a killer design: the neck is held on by string tension, and is set into a mechanism that lets the user raise and lower the whole neck in the pocket with a clock winding key. Lets you raise or lower the action in between tunes, if so desired. Arched maple back, peg headstock… pretty darn romantic. And quite loud, too.
