    When are we going guitar shopping?

    Thanks. They are common in MO. My family lives in Nashville/Hendersonville, TN and I rarely hear of a home having one there. Ground is all rock so it's costly to blast it out.

    Nice eye. I like it. I think it's well suited to someone who doesn't have any Factor series pedals, but wants a little from each one. That's my case at least. While I generally prefer one pedal for one job this thing saves me tons of space. I have it set to a tape echo preset and I doubt it'll ever move, but it'll do most anything you can imagine.

    But you need a different background on the giant monitor than you have on the laptop.
    I do in fact run it mirrored. After years of extending displays across multiple monitors I just prefer to mirror my laptop to one bigger screen now.

    Jesse, you are going to be my excuse to get out of the house next time I visit family in MO...

    Day 3:
    "I'd love to stick around and talk, but I'm supposed to meet up with Jesse to see his guitar collection and fort. Then, we're going to go to Eddie's to look at their current selection...stop at Ted Drew's on the way back...maybe the O'Fallon Brewery or a boat in Riverport..."

    "But, there's no way you can do that all in one day..."

    "You're right. Go about your day without me. I'll be back tomorrow...or the next day."
    Too many and never enough...

    Awesome. Hopefully the fort will have some additions by then.

    Nice setup, curious how you avoid feedback with the amps kinda pointing in the same direction, unless only one at a time is used?

    Your fort made be start thinking about the practicalities of converting a 4x10 cab into a fridge (I think Sergio is infecting us all). I convinced myself that it is doable, but it would be much easier to get a dorm fridge and cover it with paisley.

    This frig is available from that GC place for 399.00. Would look good in any man cave or fort and really, really good in PRS black paisley!

    In a normal year I'd have been to STL 3 times at least... Frek'n Sequestration!

    I want to at least hit Eddie's and that BBQ place "Pappy's" !
    If I thought I was going to live this long I'd have taken better care of myself!

    The signature on the back of that cab is most likely the biggest PRS signature around...and it's on the outside of your fort..."run away...run away"

    That's a nice lookin fort! I'm in the basement as well. Got my old mixer and small PA set up along with TD6 roland drums. My band practices in my basement, once everybody gets here flip a few switches and we are going. The TD6 really helps practice become productive.

    Am I supposed to have glitter down here??????

    This needs to happen. Who will be first to have a paisley fridge?!

    Looks good! You need higher walls ( stacks, more cabs) to protect yourself.
