alexskolnick Under the Gateway Arch, St. Lou. Incredible structure, representing a bit of a moral dilemma: on the one hand, it was made possible through unchecked taxpayer expense, property seizures by the US & MO Govt and constructed in glorification of unchecked Westward expansion with all it's worker exploitation & native displacement. On the other, it is freakin' beautiful! 4w

alexskolnick So much gear in storage, unused 4 years - big sale coming in near future. Yet 4 some reason, I just can't part w this! 1mon
  •   jj_2013novabeerblog It's hard to part with something unique. Even setting aside the personal sentimental (if any) value. Cheers my man! 1mon
  •   jacob_chavez23 I couldn't imagine selling my guitar and I barely bought one not too long ago. Much respect, one of many inspirations for me and trying to learn guitar. April 4th cant arrive soon enough \m/ 1mon
  •   wagmarshallpage That's one funky looking plank! What is it, @alexskolnick? 1mon
  •   68chargerjohn I hope you have one of those reverse body Ibanez 540 from the Practice what you Preach era going up for sale. Loved those forever. 1mon
  •   alexskolnick Everyone's asking about that red Ibanez, keeping that one - sorry! However there are some really cool ones I'm making available, incl the no longer made Ibanez Maxxis (fromPractice What u Preach Vid), a white 540p seen in Ibanez catalogue and used on tours, guitar from "The Legacy" sessions and much more. Amps & memorabilia too. Details soon! 1mon
  •   alexskolnick By the way, that's a Hagstrom, pieced together from original parts. I have plenty of vintage enthusiast friends who know this stuff so much better than me, but my understanding is: Hagstrom was part of the Danelectro/Silvertone family and in the early '60s, were all available from Sears. I also have a Silvertone w "lipstick pickups," these were often picked up as starter guitars for guys like SRV (and many others) who were just coming of age then (later used by Page in Led Zep). I think this one was more for "surf" players. Funny thing is, the "cheap" guitars of back then have seriously held up, still play pretty damn good and put most "cheap" guitars of today to shame! 1mon
  •   68chargerjohn I can't believe Ibanez never made that your signature model. You're the only player I've ever seen use them. Cool guitars. 1mon
  •   kevinwilsonnyc Text me with what you're getting rid of. 1mon

alexskolnick Finally got a chance to read the current Guitar Player, w multi-page "Frets" acoustic insert devoted to the Planetary Coalition album. Thanks to Vinnie DeMasi who did a fantastic job w thorough insight and extensive musical examples. Although the guy on the front cover is blocking part of my name with his head, considering who it is, I'm quite ok with that. 1mon
  •   carlosthrash Brutal @alexskolnick 1mon
  •   cheezeontoast4 Two of the finest guitarists in history. No I'm not intentionally ass kissing, and yes I mean it. You are as creative to our generation as Jimmy was to his. 1mon

  •   thekevinhoefling Climate changes all the time. Its been changing for 3.5 billion years. We arent effecting it. 1mon
  •   kennedyirl You are the best for mentioning Climate Change. We need more like you. 1mon
  •   cheezeontoast4 Hey Alex. Could you send Kevin Hoefling a straightjacket? 1mon
  •   scott_manning_02 We are effecting it. Never in history has the climate changed at this rate. Asked meteorologist at my work if we were causing problems he said " oh yeah, we're fuckin it up" sad. 1mon
  •   revlover100 Maybe it's The Legacy and we are seeing The Formation Of Damnation and The Beginning Of The End. Hopefully the new Testament album Will be out before that! 1mon

alexskolnick Closing shot from last weekend's gig with tremendously inspiring musicians Prasanna & Anton Fig - memorable mix of Eastern & Western guitar dialogues with dynamic drums and an amazing crowd. Can't wait to do this again. Also fun to catch Anton killing it behind Stevie Wonder on Letterman last night, and say "That's right, we just jammed with that guy!"

alexskolnick This is a long way off (nearly a year, Feb '16) but they're planning a music cruise strictly devoted to the guitar, with clinics, performances. Cool, eh? Honored to be one of the first 2 chosen, along with this guy, whose arpeggios I painstakingly learned in high school. Info: http://axesandanchors.com/ 2mon
