Do you want to have a custom guitar like this?

Hey Scott,

Wow, I meet another native after I move 1700 miles away *I lived all over Raleigh, from Cary (actually the slums between Raleigh and Cary) to a trailer in a small town directly north of Raleigh and west of Knightdale, can't think of the name at the moment. *We were living off of North Hills Dr before we moved to CO.

Most of those shacks are in the coal mining areas of southern VA. *That's an interesting state, it goes from total "big city" in the DC area to the opposite extreme in the southern Appalachain area. *I don't mean any disrespect to either, I grew up in Kingsport which is barely over the TN/VA line. *

Yes, I had an accent from growing up in TN, I tend to loose/pick up new ones quickly though so it has pretty much turned into no accent from all the influences. *

BTW, I worked construction, actually for a drilling company during the summers to help pay for college. *We did the subsurface drilling and soil/foundation testing before they built that mall in N. Wilkesboro. *We also did the prelim work for some of the overpasses for I-40 where it goes through Winston-Salem. *Did alot of work up in the coal mining areas of VA too. *

I love bluegrass, those guys are awesome, it is so closely descended from Celtic music. *I don't really like the nasally singing but I love the playing. *It's the heavy metal of country.

Roger

I am originally from Raleigh (knightdale to be specific) and I have no noticable accent. *I will admit that when I moved to the foothills of NC a few rednecks were asking me "where you from?" and I lived in North Wilkesboro (where the Merle Watson festival happens). *I do know where some of those shacks are located, but those types of people are rare at best.

Thanks guys, I grew up in northeast Tennesse, we were pretty civilized where I lived but it was in the Appalachain mountains. *I went to school at ETSU in Johnson City, about an hour or so west of Beech Mtn. *The area is beautiful, especially in the fall. *For some of the things Kevan is talking about we only have to drive about 30 minutes north into Virginia, especially the coal mining towns. *You drive through and see these totally run down shacks with the biggest, baddest 4-wheel drive in the driveway and a satellite dish that would make NASA envious. *

I also lived in Raleigh, NC for about 12 years, of course during that time I only met about a dozen natives. *The majority of people in that area were transplants from CA, NY and NJ. *I lost my accent within months of living there being surround by all those "damn yankees" *After about a year there my family though "I" talked funny.

Now "squeal like a pig".

ďThe SouthĒ is interesting to say the least. I personally would include Texas in ďthe southĒ. Texas has a few unique things about it, but itís still Bubba land. I think that guitar must have originally come from Texas. Guns are popular down here.

Not as popular as in Georgia though. My friend Jesse lives in Kennesaw Georgia. It is mandatory to own a gun there. Here on my little private piece of real estate, it is mandatory to own a guitar.

It was a total accident, I swear!
I signed up for Classical and I put in the wrong course code number and ended up with a bluegrass teacher. *I didnt realize it until after a few lessons.
On the lighter side, after a few weeks of him going over some basics, I brought in Pull Me Under and played along with it and when I was done he asked me why I was even taking lessons from him.
Pretty funny.

Hehe, dueling banjos.
I went to school in the Appalachian Mountains and my College had the National Championship Clogging Team. *(no kidding)
There's definately some wierd stuff that goes on up there and the gene pool seems pretty shallow :P
But, I must say there are some talented musicians playing country/bluegrass. *I don't enjoy the music much myself, but the players have some chops.
What else are you going to do when you have no running water?
Tom will kill me for saying this, but he took lessons from a bluegrass instructor...
Sorry Tom

Ok Ok Ok! *Everyone can relax...

My main point of reference is a book called "Appalacian Portraits". *It's probably the most disturbing book I've read/seen in my life (I'll show you folks the "library" here sometime). *A former co-worker purchased the book new, and we all had Jaw Drop Syndrome on our lunch breaks while looking at/reading the book. *I don't remember it all verbatim, but here's a basic summary....

The author was a native to the mountainous terrain, but had left the "schools" there and gone on to the "big city" to go to college, where he/she graduated. *As their first project after school, he/she did a photo montage with descriptions of the everyday life of the people he/she called "family". *

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this book was longer than War & Peace and The Illiad combined.....and harder to understand and fully grasp. *It was a "coffee-table book" of about 50 pages, but inside were pictures that would make your insides twist like Chubby Checker circa 1958. *It was horrific, yet amazing at the same time. *Far too many words are necessary for me to remotely describe it.

It's a completely different world...yes-WORLD...than where you and I live, but it's really only a few miles away. *I'm sitting here shaking my head...feeling bad that my cunning lingual skills aren't enough to get my message across. *How about: *It makes "Deliverance" look like Mr. Rogers Neighboorhood...?

I did a few searches during this post to find a link to the book, but to no avail. *It's so twisted, they could have stopped printing it.

I like North Carolina. *Beech Mtn. has some good skiing....considering it's NC and all. :-)*

Ehem...Kevan...Charlotte, NC reporting in here. *We also have call waiting (though only a few of us have figured out what that beeping is) thank you very much.

Extra strings in the clip?
His amp was probably designed to look like a coondog pen.

Actually, I think Roman does have or has had a similar guitar, but I think it was modelled after a M60, not the M16.

hey used to have it in the office window at ECMM.

North Carolina and Texas are WORLDS apart. *:-) *By "south" I meant those places where "Dueling Banjo's" is the top song on the AM radio, kids with 4 toes that eat applesauce through a straw...that sort of thing. *TX is a bit different; you guys have call-waiting.

Get past Bob? *I guess I'll have to bring my ladder....and a taser. *LOL

Ahem... what are you saying about people from the South? *Remember Kevan, I'll be seeing you at Jemfest! *Don't mess with me because I got Bob to hide behind! *

I think this guitar would look good with ER's collection of guns. *Just need to find some nasty chick to pose. *What's the deal with the automatic weapons in his photos anyway?
