• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Mike Hickey was pretty good at pinball. Joe not so much, at least from what I could tell... But he may have been getting ready to roll me in dollar games, and didn't want to show his hand!

We're all alike....if we're not obsessing about guitars, we are obsessing about pinball machines, watches.....or something!:rofl

He's playing through a stock 1959 Fender tweed champ turned to about "6" on the volume scale. Both joe and mike liked that particular tweed champ (there were two to choose from.)

At the risk of exposing my naivete, can someone tell me about this magical warehouse of pinball machines and vintage guitars? Someone's big private collection? I vaguely recall having seen photos from here in the past.

Thanks TW, I was afraid to ask. Figured it was another secret society.... (you guys from Jersey have bigger balz.):hee
PS sorry TW59, I was confusing you with Black58.

the pinball clubhouse is a private venue for sure. being it's in detroit, not exactly the vacation destination of the midwest, we don't get too many outside visitors. so looking for any reason to celebrate, it was nice to have joe and mike stop by. guitars do live there too, but not all the time.

Clay, years ago I bought an old Ray-o-lite duck rifle range arcade, and when I researched it I recognized your email address on the site and got a chuckle. :salude
