Helloo, Im a new user, known as ruk777 at gearheads. hi to all who have known me. I always try to be on my best behavior. I am a bus rider of 30+ years. I play jerry style and have been studying his technique for that many years. Chicago....I collect vintage amps, travis bean guitars, and all that good stuff. I hope your wisdom can guide me to a higher place!
-peace,
John

John? From Chicago? Plays Jerry? 30+ Years? Great Equipment? Is this the John we'll be seeing at the Boulder Theater Saturday?

Regardless, welcome!

Peace,

Gil

hey, you can call me ruk. That should identify me to some. Hey, how do you guys get a photo to be on your moniker?
Thanks!

Hey RUK! Officially welcome to you. I was thinking it might be Kadlicek so that's why I was asking.

OK milobender....bend my milo! As for the moniker, I will just have to become a babbler here. Anyways, here is a link to my photo-site. Any vintage gear freaks will love it, and if you are a deadhead, it will be twice the fun! This should be fun because i can see the count of how many views each photo gets. here's the studio:

Okay RUK, I just swallowed my gum. What's the deal? Do you sell this gear or are you attempting to rid the world of all the "good" gear?

no, I just had to hear for myself first hand what all this stuff did. I started with one rare pedal. An Oberheim Sample/Filter Hold. Ended up selling that to Slash (photo's in there somewhere of us)...then started buying amps one at a time, meeting new people who had deals, then got into the Travis Bean thing hard. They are my favorites because they are so easy/fun to play and sound so good, to put it in a nutshell.
I'm going to keep blasting away because I want an AvATAR!

HEY! Tigerstrat! hey, we just unearthed a bunch of old Stephen's Answer pictures! Got as far back as Winnetka youth center up to Gabes Oasis! A bunch of us tripping hippies. Those were the days!

Hey, what would you guys say an Alembic F2b is worth? A guy local has one that is serial # 30. I am tempted because I want to pair it with a Butler Audio power amp and 2x12" JBL D120s. Is $700 too much?
Thanks,

I think Im trippin'. my moniker avatar keeps changing. Now im Vince Welnic
(By the way, anyone see the movie called, "Ladies and gentlemen, the Incredible Stains"? Vince is in the main band and he o.d.s in the movie. A cult classic. tons of footage of Vince duing the Tubes era. He plays guitar and wears his wrap around glasses.
