    For sure. I was the same way. I thought he was just already an employee and helped out with the design. There isn't much consistent info out there. With only of few articles/posts showing up when you Google him. And only a handful of threads talking about it, from the old forum mostly.

    I'll have to do a comparison thread on the Nobby, like I did with the '85 JD. There's not even a Nobby Club. We'll have to change that :D

    New old high end hi-fi speakers. TDL Studio 0.75m.
    Standing only 70cm tall and reaching down to 30hz. No need for a sub.
    They are for the living room. I currently have TDL Studio 0.5 with a black finish there but I wanted an upgrade and got bored with the black.

    These are transmissionline speakers. The design of this type of speaker cabs is intricate but it sounds so awesome.
    Picking them up on sunday.

    Those are some awesome speakers! I really like vintage high-end stereo equipment. They just don't make 'em like they used to.

    Well, after wanting a Jazzman for a long time, and deciding that being heavily indebted at death was a worthy goal, I bought this:

    It is used. It was made in 2013, and according to the seller, barely used. Considering the all wenge neck, flamed maple on swamp ash body, and brass jan3 construction, I think I got a great deal on it for $1300USD shipped. It IS awful pretty:

    So for my 50th birthday my wife said whatever I wanted. I decided to not go crazy and ask for a custom bass lol, but asked for this instead as I wanted a newer guitar. Should be here Friday

    I am so aggravated man. The first shipment I got for the guitar, the package was fine, but when I opened it up...ugh! Guitar was obviously dropped as it had a huge dent on one end and the paint was gone, and also the pickup adjustment screw was broken. Called up and they did a replacement, but the guitar was back ordered. Got a box today which was totally trashed, open it up...they sent the wrong model! lol so ridiculous. Called Musician's Friend up and they are like, whoops! It checked the guitar and it is damaged too. So I said I am not driving to the UPs store, you come and get it and send me the right guitar now. They won't send the guitar I ordered til they get this wrong one back, and they can't even figure out if they have it in stock lol. Yikes...never be doing business with these guys again. I knew Guitar Center had bought them so I was wary, but didn't expect this to happen.
    End rant lol :(

    Lol ya know before they got bought out they were awesome. And honestly they had a sale so we saved $100 off the price of the guitar, otherwise I would have gone somewhere else. They wrong guitar I got was damaged, I said make sure you note that and don't try and sell it to someone else.
