    Works for me. That thing got hit by the ugly stick. Now it will actually get played.

    I'm guessing it was a dark blue or opaque finish that got sanded off.

    Must have been an alder CE that got it's neck painted. I can faintly make out the back plate, black headstock "veneer", and that body wood sure don't look like mahogany... just a guess, but I can usually smell CE's from 50 yards away.

    Good call! Check out the undrilled divot where the tone pot usually goes.

    And you see that screw near the back of the bridge? My guess is there are no springs in the cavity for the trem.... it's pretty close, I should check it out.

    Thereby proving once again (as if proof were needed) what an absolute tool he is.

    The worst part is he lives in Michigan. It's embarrassing.

    I totally missed that. I'll bet this one was built (sorta) to be destroyed.

    Ah, hold your head up, little buckaroo - he lives in Texas now, at least part time.

    He's still here, too, has a very big spread in the southern part of central Michigan in Concord.

    I have nothing to say about his playing; he was a pioneer of a certain style, and he can still play. In fact, he's a great player.

    But I go back a very long way with Noogedom and I'll leave it at that.

    I think I must be the only left-wing, vegetarian, mildly crossdressing, pacifist that loves the Nuge... I'm not even bothered by him shooting flaming arrows at a perfectly beautiful CE. I don't care for his music or politics enough to pay attention, but I think he enriches the earth.

    I'm down with Teddly.

    I didn't know if he still had the place in Michigan or not - everything I've heard in the last few years seems to be done at or about his place in Texas. I was kind of surprised because of how much he talks about MI.

    I love a lot of Nuge's playing, but sometimes I wish he'd just play.

    Oh, no doubt the man is a talent. I saw him play at the Detroit Music Awards a couple of years back and he can still play extremely well.

    At some point, he ceased being Ted Nugent, actual person, and became his clownish stage persona-creation, "Nooge."

    I get the entertainment value in that, and at the same time, I wonder if Moe of the Three Stooges told people to "pick two" in everyday life.

    That's the point that wouldn't come to me earlier - he stopped being Ted. His band is killer, especially now that Derek is back - and Ted really needs to have that rhythm guitar in his band. When it was just a trio, it was definitely lacking. Seeing Derek sing "Stranglehold" with Ted was a long-standing wish of mine.

    Years ago, I read Moe's book, and oddly enough, he talked about something similar to your example. He said he was giving a speech somewhere, and some kid brought a pie and wanted Moe to hit him in the face with it (Moe said in those Stooges pie fights, if he's not in the shot, he's the one throwing the pie). Moe said the kid's pie was in a metal pan, so he tried to explain to the kid that they never threw metal pans, they were cardboard fakes, but the kid insisted. I don't remember what happened, but it wasn't a laugh for the kid.

    I was thrilled to see him at the first Experience and hear him sing "Hey Baby" in person, but "Stranglehold" at that event was EPIC. I gained a whole new level of respect for Derek after seeing all the different stuff he could do there.

    But I never got a chance to see him w/Nugent until a couple years ago - I was late on the Nuge train. Mostly because, at the age I should have been clueing in on him, I hated the people around me who liked him. A buddy of mine finally hooked me with the Nugent album - to this day, "Tailgunner" is a favorite. And if Derek ever sings "No, No, No" within my hearing range, I may need to change my pants.
