gnr guitarist bumblefoot needs a hand/foot

on may 12th of this year guns and roses confirmed that their new lead guitarist was ron "bumblefoot" thal, replacing guitarist buckethead , who had been with the band since 2000. up until just recently, bumblefoot played this unique guitar. the axe was built in collaboration with vigier , and it had become bumblefoot's main guitar. main guitar until recently that is. seems the guitar took a beating when bfoot took it out on the road for gnr's latest european tour, and now it's on the verge of being permanently retired. so, bumblefoot has turned to the masses for inspiration on what he's calling "foot guitar version 2.0". he's asking for "something new, something cool, something designed by you!" check out the invitation here .

Way to Go Ron!

I met Ron at NAMM 2005 and spoke to him for a little bit. He even mailed me an autographed copy of one of his cd's. I didn't know he got the gig with Guns n' Roses. That's awesome!

I found this website to compare guitar strings, called Stringlinks.

They don’t sell anything; they just provide a way to compare prices side by side.

The site was created so guitar players could have an easy to use reference of guitar string venders, all in one place.

Just click on a Vender to compare string prices. A new window will open (to their “Strings” page) from each vender; so you don't lose you place.

Check it out at

It’s pretty cool.
