    Guitar Center Ghost Town

    Maybe it's a local thing here. I'm surprised though because you're in IL. I'm in the snow belt and people want to get out - not 'outside out', but out of the house. I stopped at GC last Friday and there was a lot of activity. Stopped at the local MGR yesterday and the lot was full. I guess...

    I wore a mask and gloves. No one allowed in the store without a mask. All the employees had masks. There were arrowed lines on the floor people were supposed to follow, and floor markings 6 ft. apart for people to wait in line, but it seemed those were mostly ignored. I didn't stay inside...

    Fred Gretsch Says, “Go Ahead Fender, Release Your Broad(c)aster, Just One More Time.”

    You don't agree that it looks a lot like Fender Butter Cream regardless of what it's actually called? I'm past that. :p

    Was I dreaming (not Dream related, DCP)

    Before Casio Music went belly up, Sabian reps used to come to Drummerfest and had some prototypes for sale. Some other places that sell drums might do something similar.

    There was one indie shop around here, but the owner died years back. The building was torn down and there's condos there now. :oops:

    The wait was so long because I had a set of drums in the car I was going to trade in. I've seen them much busier before, when it was elbow to elbow - but you know, covid and all that. The employees were excited and kept mentioning black friday, so there was undoubtedly some hyperbole involved...

    I stopped at the local GC on Friday and was told it could be a 4 to 6 hour wait before someone could get to me.

    Is Ludwig missing the boat on Acros?

    Duh - I posted before scrolling down and seeing the thread about it. It probably would help if Ludwig would update their site once in a while. ;) Makes me wonder what other new stuff they have that I don't know about.

    Marijuana and Drumming ?

    I prefer the crystal clear clarity of stone cold sobriety at all times. No desire at all for a burnt out brain.

    90's Ludwig Classic vs Today's Classic Maple

    Are there any visual clues to tell the difference between Classic and Classic Maple other than counting the plies? Were the ones with the modular hardware Classics?

    Rare Ludwig Jazzette on the Bay

    Does anyone have a good memory? Or would someone happen to have saved the listing or a picture? Curious as to what the price was - consensus was that it was high. Also curious as to what the finish was - consensus was that it looked real good.

    Is a Rewrapped kit a turn-off? Read the description.

    A wrap can hide a lot of defects and damage. Things like split or gouged wood, poor quality or mismatched wood, extra holes, scratches, nicks, dents, and so on. A new wrap can make an old, beat up kit look new. Can't judge a book by its cover.

    Do you put some kind of clear coat over it, or is it pretty permanent as-is?
