One of favorite guitars is a Fender Strat. I own an early 1980's American made cream colored one but I wanted to photograph my friends black one to display on my wall in the studio. #guitar #music #vintage #fender #volume #tone #art

Someone was supposed to pick her up today.  I'm supposed to sell my vintage @Ampeg to help my son attend college.  Before I do there is NO WAY I'm going to sell this baby until I hear her one last time. That was the idea anyway.  I plugged her in just to be sure she still works.  It's been at least 20 years and I believed she was unbreakable.  I flipped the switch excited to her breathe sound again but  in a split second I was devastated. She wouldn't turn on. I stared at her for what seems to be an eternity, unable to comprehend why and then came to the realization I have fix her.  I carefully removed her heart. I checked every connection until I found that the main switch wasn't providing power. I bypassed the switch with a simple hack, plugged her in and the orange glow of life shined from her panel and tubes.  I put her back together, cranked the mid to its max and set the bass and treble. This Amp sounds best loud. And I mean LOUD. I plugged my guitar in, turned the volume to 10 and struck an A chord. My kids ran down to see what  the hell was so loud and shaking the house.  They never heard anything so dramatic. She's alive. I played some Clapton, Hendrix, Zeppelin and Metallica. I forgot. I forgot the feeling of sitting in front of my Ampeg  playing music that made me who I am today.  My ears were ringing. My heart was racing. My soul is once again singing. 🤘🏼❤ #love #guitar #amp #music #soul #happiness #photooftheday

The way the sun highlights the dew on a handrail at my kids school. It's the little things, the details that make this world great. ❤️😎🤘🏼 #morning #dew #urbanlandscape #landscape #california #losangeles #sunrise #iphone
