Paul Gilbert: Racer X... the force is strong in this one

Seems like the band Racer X has some of the best fans in the world.... remember the post Racer X original lineup to record again? well these guys and gals do... http://racerx.edutom.co.uk/board/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=20821&start=0 I really like the comment:

Two things that unfortunately will never go into the same phrase or sentence: "Racer X" and "World Tour".......
So Paul prove us fans all wrong... you know it makes sense! Now join with me in the communion of the Holy Racer X as we bond and say the immortal words... Racer X... Racer X... Racer X... and again!!! Racer X... Racer X... Racer X...

Jason Becker: join the group that matters!

Hello all! Happy to see this page is receiving a warm start! =)
First of all, allow me to introduce myself...
My name is Bronson Buskett, and like most of you, I am merely a passionate musician/guitarist and avid Jason fan.
After being a part of the production for the upcoming Jason film, and attending his most recent birthday party, I was asked by someone close to the Becker family to render a resource page for the man himself. (fanboy moment!)
Through most recent events, many that are close with Jason have seen just how many individuals have been touched by his story on a global scale, and are willing to reach out to him. This is more than a blessing for somebody who demands constant assistance, medical support, and financial alleviation.
Only one problem arises... Jason is much too humble and modest to ask his fans for help!!! That is this page's function; to serve as a communal collaboration for a very special guy. (The 'page description' elaborates more on this if you have not read it already) Specific concerns to be posted very soon.
Remember, this is EVERYBODY'S page. our enduring love for the Becker family gives this group an extraordinary sense of unity!

Thank you all so much

Becker's Babes and Buds: http://www.facebook.com/groups/209127152479798/ You Chance to express your views and thought to Jason!

Plus go the extra mile and join us on this singularly unique night of the year, especially for Jason... a stunning show, with never to repeated jam sessions. A must see for all fans of guitar.

Fred Brum: physical CD for album?

Fred Brum:
I've had several people asking me whether I'd put out a physical CD out when I release the album in November, which leads me to ask the question: would you be willing to pre-order a CD (which would give you access to the digital download as well, obviously) in spite of the added cost of a CD? vote

News: Henry E. Juszkiewicz and Alex Jones discuss Gibsongate

Last week Federal agents raided two Gibson guitar factories in Tennessee because materials that were used by the guitar maker were allegedly breaking international laws. The law that Gibson allegedly broke was that they used wood that wasn't finished by workers in India, and the process was being completed in plant in Tennessee, therefore making it illegal. Alex Jones, radio host of the Alex Jones Show, tells us if Federal agents raids are on the rise.

Colin Smith: Armor Gold Cable Demo

Armor Gold Cable Demo

Alright My Boodies .. 
Sweet Ass Demo today ,, got the Armor Gold cables and the New V-Pick Onyx
Industrial Mesh Outer Layer - Extra layer of protective mesh prevents damage from stretching, pinching, bending, slicing, kinking and other common hazards of stage use. This is NOT a cloth braid, it is a high tech polymer mesh commonly used in industrial and aerospace applications.
Amphenol Plugs - Professional grade and precision-engineered connectors that have stood the test of time. The choice of touring pros who depend on their proven reliability, durability, and strength.
Dual Strain Relief - First layer is a flexible grommet where the connector meets cable. Second layer is a secured yellow heat shrink that extends past the grommet onto the cable for double protection against failure from flex strain.
Double Layer Heat Shrink - Two layers cover the plug. The yellow layer provides strain relief to the cable and prevents the plug body from accidently coming unscrewed. The black layer prevents the yellow layer from cracking or slipping off and gives the plug a softer grip.
20 Gauge, 41 Strand Oxygen Free Copper Conductor - The perfect blend of flexibility, strength and medium-low capacitance. Oxygen free copper delivers a purer signal.
Resin Injected Connections - After soldering, resin is injected between the hot and ground connections preventing them from contacting each other and shorting out.
PVC Outer Jacket - Thick but flexible jacket provides protection and excellent handling characteristics.
95% Spiral Wound Copper Shield - Provides protection against outside interference, but maintains flexibility.
Conductive PVC Layer - Reduces handling noise and provides extra protection against outside interference.
Polyethylene Wire Insulation - Extremely durable and reduces capacitance.
Lifetime Warranty - All Armor Gold cables are warrantied for life against defective materials and/or workmanship.
