Reunited. And you know how that feels...

When I was 12, I bought this guitar at a pawn shop for 100 bucks. It used to have a Gretsch/Bigsby tailpiece on it which I let some dude talk me into trading for the Ibanez tailpiece that's on it now. Bad move, but I was young. I took the pick guard off of it, but I still have it so no harm done there.

One instrument lead to another and this Univox "Effie" got relegated to a closet in my parent's house where it languished for more than a decade. A month ago I rescued it and took it to the guitar shop to have it cleaned up and set up, which cost 27 dollars. I got it back yesterday and I'm so psyched.

I put the Jaclyn Smith sticker on it when I was 15, a misguided stab at irony. Oh well.

Being prejudiced is never okay

Erik sent me a copy of Don Felder's autobiography. He played guitar in The Eagles. I'm not an Eagles fan so this was totally random. But, I trust Erik. So, I was reading about The Eagles recording "One of These Nights," and I decided to listen to the album, which I own in spite of not digging The Eagles, but have never once played.

It's better than I thought it would be. There's a cool instrumental on the first side called "Journey of the Sorcerer" (!), and I like "Take it to the Limit." However, the best thing about "One of These Nights" is the embossed cover. It is undeniably bad as hell.

One bitchy group of dudes.
