I didn’t bond well with the Epiphone Casino from 4-5 posts up. I decided to trade it in on a PRS McCarty 594. For those unfamiliar a McCarty 594 is like a modern PRS take on a ‘59 les Paul. Had all intentions of buying a solid body one but after playing the hollow body version of it I walked away with the hollow body pictures. I’m not crazy about the color but this guitar sounds fucking nuts. I’d rather have that than order the McCarty sunburst color one I want but will never get to hear before I get it.

Roommate in college had one of these. It did sound really, really good. But I didn't like the feel of it at all. It was like a baseball bat in my hands.

Yeah PRS necks took a bit for me to get used to the neck and the 10” fret radius of PRS guitars but I love them now. This guitar is very silimar to my custom 24 but has a shorter scale length.

Ordered some stuff from sweetwater a couple of months ago. Looked today. Every one of them had a 20% price increase. Not guitars. Inflation.

This dropped today.


I got an early listen of the upcoming EP a few weeks ago. Everything was stellar. Co-worker of mine takes drum lessons from Chuck Keeping and while I hated to see him leave, having Sekou back with Thornley is great as well.

Chuck is super solid, so I was bummed to see him leave but, yeah, having Sekou back is fantastic. I assume Ought to Be and Middle of Nowhere are NOT on the upcoming EP. I feel like both of those tracks were either experiments, one-offs, or, in the case of Middle of Nowhere, just some platform for Kroeger to yack his way through a song that's not 100% garbage.

Your 100% correct. Those were both recorded last summer as a one off to occupy time. Chucks on those as well. Ian had a whole different mindset going into the upcoming EPs based off what I've heard. Very much in the middle of Albatross and Beyond the Sun with MUCH better production than Beyond the Sun.
