  •   wolflikeshe I'm not sure if it's true, but I read gas prices are down because they're drilling on Native American soil. 3d
  •   desmachine Gas prices are down because Saudi Arabia told OPEC to go f@$k themselves. Basically, instead of letting OPEC control and regulate the price of gas, they are just gonna sell it for whatever price they want to put on it which is significantly less than what it's been. The prices on gas have been so high that there's a surplus of it now. And China's economy has slowed down a lot as well. I think what you're thinking about is the Key Stone pipeline which has yet to be approved on American soil. It keeps getting voted down in congress. All of that being said, Native Americans have still suffered more than any other race of people on the North American continent, but I don't think it's bringing gas prices down. I'll have to look more into that. @wolflikeshe 3d
  •   wolflikeshe That's interesting to know! Thank you. I haven't had the chance to read up on it. Let me know what you find out. 3d

desmachine If I could hand pick any guitar on the planet right now, I think I'd take this one. What a perfect birth year guitar: 1982 Gibson Les Paul Custom "Black Beauty" .. Currently in stock @southsideguitars So if all of my friends on Instagram would just send them $2 dollars each, that should add up to enough to cover the guitar, plus taxes and shipping. #thanksinstagram #geartalk #gearwire #gibsonsofinstagram #gearnerds #mojotones #guitarsdaily #gibson #lespaul #custom 5d
  •   desmachine Haha I wish man. I guess a boy can dream about such things @bdmattern 5d
  •   baudebr I've got such a soft spot for ebony customs. Borrowed a friends '68 for a jam and my world has never been the same. 5d
  •   desmachine I owned a 68' Custom VOS a few years back and ended up having to let her go. I've wanted another one every day since then. @baudebr 5d
  •   baudebr @desmachine I feel your pain. I think when my burst build is done I'm going to do a '68 replica. 5d
  •   baudebr @desmachine actually a '59 black beauty replica. A la jimmy page. 5d
  •   desmachine Good lord, have mercy! I can't wait to see that @baudebr 5d
  •   southsideguitars Hey bud thanks for the shoutout if we still have this one in march we'll bring it down to the Nashville guitar show so you can drool over it in person 12h
  •   desmachine That would be so rad!! .. And, you never know, we might be able to make a deal on that guitar. I've got a few guitars you guys might be interested in and I might even have enough cash by then to do the deal. Thanks for giving me a heads up @southsideguitars 12h

desmachine Last week my gear shifter tube inside of the steering wheel column of my 93' Ford F-150 snapped probably due to how cold it was. I couldn't get my truck out of park. I had her towed to a Ford dealer about a quarter of a mile from where I live. A day later they told me this: $90 bucks for the tow. $98 bucks for the diagnostic work. (FYI they told me that what was broken was exactly what I told them that I thought was broken because a quick google search proved that it's a very common thing for these year models.) And here's the best part. $485 for parts!! 5 hours of labor at $100 per hour to bring the grand total to over $1200!!! .. The truck ain't worth $1200 dollars .. So let me take a minute to say this: I owe my dad a huge debt of gratitude. My father taught me how to fix my own stuff. He's shown me a lot over the years. When I called him and told him about everything he just said man, "you can fix that yourself." And he was right. I found the broken part for $43 dollars at advanced auto parts. And a really great YouTube video explaining exactly how to fix what's broken on my truck. The only thing that was left for me to do was to man up. Now I'm fixing my own truck at the back of the Ford parking lot while they watch me do it. So thanks Dad. Thank you for teaching me basic common sense and basic mechanics. A little bit of that can go a long way in life my friends. #DIY #thanksDad 2w

desmachine #GuitarNerd #ALERT What I'm holding is a 1988 Gibson Les Paul Standard B-Bender! Yes, you just read that right. This guitar belongs to a buddy of mine, his dad purchased it several years ago at a Gibson Factory Auction. My best guess is that this was some kind of prototype, possibly a loaner of some kind. Either way, the guitar was in bad shape. The strings on it looked like barbed wire and the neck needed some adjusting. Needless to say, she's up and running and playing great now. I'll try to get a demo up here in a little bit. #geartalk #gearwire #gearnerds #mojotones #guitarlife #guitartech #guitarsdaily #musiciansdaily #gibson #lespaul #bbender 3w

desmachine I just played the best sounding amp I've ever heard. This video really doesn't do it justice. You just have to be there and hear it in person. Truly an amazing experience. #dumble #steelstringsinger #geartalk #gearwire #gearnerds #gottone #mojotones #amazing #Nashville 3w
