Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

I still like the idea to make one for Bob and give him S/N #1. We all soldier a "joint." Then all sign and present to him.

Over the holidays, I spent an entire day out there looking for audio places with friends from Fairburn. Everything we found Google maps was out of business. Best we did was Fry's. Alternative was closed that day. Is there any place left in Atlanta where you can hear nice gear?

Thanks for the info. Next time I'm out there visiting, I'd really love to listen to some good gear. We have little to nothing out here.

Forgot to mention, b/c of Georgia's weird shape, Charleston and Jacksonville are actually really close to here compared to Atlanta. (almost twice as long trip.) I'm less than a mile from Carolina as the crow flies.

I am the same - I live on the Savannah River and can see Georgia as I sit here on my deck.

I like Georgia except for the area in and around Atlanta which is fucked up.
The Ga upstate and the Ga coast is paradise.

If you want a relaxed vacation w/o the criminals in Myrtle Beach cess pool, go to Tybee Island.

Wait a minute...
I thought you were on the far end of Carolina.
Didn't know you were on the Georgia side.
I just spent half the day at work, on Hutchinson Island,
in the middle of the Savannah River.
How far upriver are you?

Scratch that, I just googled. Looks like Oconee County is so far upstream that if you pee in the river today, it'll pass through Savannah in July.

I am getting credit for saying lets build Bob an amp.
I just re read the thread and have no idea why that great idea is hooked to me.

I just meant to buy him a better hat or something.

I am not opposed to the other though.
