My father was visiting for the Christmas holidays so we made a couple of guitar videos for your viewing pleasure here:

This is Dan Herron from Austin, Texas playing You Really Got Me Cover by Van Halen. Dan is using Ernie Ball Music Man Axis guitar with Line6 Flextone II amps.

This is John Herron from Marble Falls, Texas playing Crossroads Blues Cover by Eric Clapton. John is using Ernie Ball Music Man 5150 Axis guitar with Line6 Flextone II amps.

Here’s my latest acquisition, a Vintage Sunburst Ernie Ball Music Man Axis Guitar.

Beautiful isn’t she.

Thanks to Marty in Chicago for selling me this beauty. By the way, ebay is a rip off. Send the buyer a note and ask if they’ll sell the guitar off ebay in a private sell.

Stevie Ray Vaughan Memorial on Town Lake Shores in Austin, Texas

Stephen Ray Vaughan (October 3, 1954 – August 27, 1990), born in Dallas, Texas, was an American blues guitarist. His broad appeal made him one of the world’s most influential electric blues guitarists. In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Stevie Ray Vaughan #7 in their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. Stevie lived in Austin; he was the younger brother of Jimmie Vaughan of Austin, Texas.

Stevie Antone’s Framed Print

Here’s a couple of Antone’s show prints I had framed at Hobby Lobby. They did a spectacular job! (If you go to Hobby Lobby at 183/Lakeline, ask for Mona). I bought these posters at Antone’s back around 2000. I’ve got a couple more of Stevie and Buddy Guy I’ll get framed one of these days.

Stevie Ray Vaughan Birthday Celebration. This is a SRV print I bought at Antone’s.

Aren’t those matching frame mats stunning!

I thought I would show you my 5150 because I just put a new Frankenstraat neck on it.

New EVH Wolfgang Fender Guitar

Eddie Van Halen EVH Wolfgang Fender Guitar

I think this is the new EVH Wolfgang Fender prototype guitar or did Eddie just cut out the horn off of his Peavey Wolfgang? At Summer NAMM 2007 in Austin, I spoke with Charvel/Jackson, Marketing Manager, Brian McDonald. He said they were working on a new EVH Fender guitar, most likely priced under $2,000 so I betcha this is it.

Close up of the Eddie Van Halen EVH Wolfgang Fender Guitar Neck

I don’t care for this headstock. Does it look uninspiring or what? I think it looks like a shark or lobster claw. I wish he would have a Music Man style neck. I wish Ed would come up with something new rather than just keep regurgitating the same guitar over and over with each company he changes over to.

What do you all think? Are you going to buy one?

Ocean Force: Panama City Beach TV Show—Mondays at 8pm & 8:30pm on Court TV

Panama City Beach TV Show Header

I found this cool TV show, Ocean Force: Panama City Beach.

As you may or may not know Panama City Beach is the No. 1 Spring Break spot in US; it’s a most spectacular vacation spot because the beaches are primo.

I grew up vacationing in PCB from a kid and was just there last week so I know every nook and cranny of this beach so I found this show to be very interesting and a fresh break from COPS.

My bedroom. We all have to have separate living quarters because we constantly fight about the AC temperature.

(PS Grandma is jitterbugging to “Word Up” by Cameo on my iTunes right now, very funny, now SuperFreak by Rick James, video to come).

Thanks to my Panama City Beach Flickr friend :-) Danarah for hooking me up with some good Panama City Beach info. Here’s a link to her Flickr photos: http://www.flickr.com/photos/danarah/
