Great pic Buddy.
Thanks for the info on the Lentz, hope I'm not being a pain in the butt but I was just wondering if you knew what your front and rear pickups read? I installed a Tonerider P90 in the neck of my Tele and have a Fralin vintage stock in the bridge and I'm finding it a little hard to get used to, as they are a little unbalanced. The Fralin bridge reads 6.6k and the Tonerider P90 in the neck is 8.0 k. I'm not sure which way to go would be a better option. Taking a few winds off the P90 or selling the bridge pickup and buying a new one that is 5% overwound to get a closer match to the neck.
I don't wan't to screw around too much with the tone of the bridge as i like it and have never been really keen on overwound pickups.
Hey Lefty, it was JC Penney & Co....and the same shirt is available in more, uh...'realistic' sizes today at Ft Worth Tent and Awning. And right you are Curt, hair today, gone tomorrow. I'm like that poor ol' snake that was so down and out he didn't have a pit to hiss in.
THAT is a great ZZ-Top photo. Look at that stack...and I gotta squash into my corner with the bass players head stock in my cheek standing on top of my 1-12 with the air flapping my jean cuffs and hitting the back of my knees. Bring back the stage!
Hey Bud - I know this is an old thread but what's the doohickey on the top left of your amp, the purple pedal? Also looks to be a 1X12 cab...is it? Do you remember what speaker it had in it? Great tone and playing!

That's an original Tim Jauernig Luxury Drive, and you are correct, an old style 19X19 1x12 Z cab, wish I had anuthern' jes' like it, its a perfect match for my ol' Studio Deluxe 38, and the ghia head. The speaker is a Celestion G12H100, still use it every night when I'm overseas. Rubs just a little! Still use the Luxury Drive occasionally and love it, Used it on the Gary Moore tour we did and couldn't help but notice Gary picked one up too, although manufactured by TRex since Tim sold out to 'em. I have been enjoying the LL Flying Dragon as of late.

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!

The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.

GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.
