    Rx, Casanova - don’t let it haunt you. I begged, cajoled, pleaded, visited, tried to stay in touch and nothing worked. They have to do it for themselves. Unfortunately friends and family have little sway. Hideous addictions.

    EVH smoked, did drugs, drank yet thought keeping a metal guitar pick in his mouth caused the tongue cancer. Said some docs kinda wondered if he was right. Who knows, but all the partying wouldn’t have helped - which he admitted. RIP dude.

    D*mn @pgjackson, with "first" guitars like that, I gotta ask what your first car - or cars - was? Cobra, Dino and a SuperBird? ;^)

    Meh...shop around and be patient and you can find great deals on guitars. Paid $250 for my MiM Strat. It also helps to have a brother who is in the industry.

    I couldn't agree more. Gilmore is in my Top 3 all time favorite guitarists, because of the tone, emotion and concepts he could convey through his playing. If you fast forward to the 7:00 mark of Echoes you can get an idea of what I'm talking about. The guitar work is haunting.

    I bought my son a PRS for his first guitar. He still plays it along with a gorgeous American made Strat I got him.

    NICE @Casanova_Flatulence - you shoulda been my Dad! ;^) My first was a 6-string Stella I bought with lawn mowing money.

    My "strat" is a frankenstrat, not the true deal; `79 neck, w/the same 3-pickup config as an American made and a dense non-fender body that brings her weight to 13 lbs - definitely pretty, but not a stand up gig guitar. Main acoustic is a `71 Glen Campbell Ovation that was gifted to me by a friend's Dad who wrote for ARS. Before it came to me it suffered a serious crack in the headstock when the boys in the band got a little rowdy at their cabin on Eufaula (I think it was), so it doesn't come out of the case much these days. A Washburn J-10 Orleans in natural finish caught my eye on eBay - and she's beautiful in looks and tone, beautiful through an amp, - I've never gotten used to the flat-wound strings, to be honest. The guitar I play the most cuz i leave it out without worry, is a 3/4 classical I bought for my daughter almost 20 yrs ago. SAd, but true.

    Getting back on track, I think I'm with a lot of y'all on Gilmore; if I could play like one guy, it might be him. I think it was pgjackson who used the perfect word to describe his playing- sublime.
