Truth In Shredding gets a mention in the guitar blog awards: http://www.guitarfriendly.net/2010-guitar-blog-awards/

I wanted to take time and recognize some of the really excellent guitar blogs out there, and in doing so, ultimately thank the people who’ve done an absolutely outstanding job in providing the best quality content about guitar on the web. Plus, it’s just downright fun giving away and receiving awards.

Thanks to Red for letting me know about this.

Chris Caffery Attention! The guitar in my profile photo has been stolen. It is a Gibson Les Paul Custom Ace Frehley model. Gibson made a limited run of these in the late 1990's. I am offering a substantial reward for information leading to its return and the arrest of the person who stole it.
