Honky Tonkitis

Here's where you talk to the band


New Honky Tonkitis guitarist Bruce Dean recently acquired the Baritone guitar of former Honky Tonkitis guitarist Chris Conrad.

"I like the way it sparkles and has all those colors on it," Dean commented. "It did show up out of tune. All of the strings were off by one. The lowest string was a B instead of E, and so on. But I'm taking care of the problem. I'm having a luthier chop off a couple of frets on the neck so that I can restring it the correct way. Then it should play really nice, at least on the first couple of frets. The rest will be completely out of tune."

Dean noted he was also interested in purchasing Conrad's amplifiers, foot pedals, cables and stage clothes. 

"I was always fascinated by the way Conrad dressed on stage. He's a foot taller than me, but I figure I can make it all work for me with a bunch of safety pins and kleenex in the end of his shoes. I figure by the time I'm done, people won't even know Chris is gone."
