Well guys, the photo situation is FINALLY fully resolved! Everything is back on the site for the first time in nearly 8 months! I'm sincerely sorry for how long it took to fix this, if you've been following up to this point you probably know that I didn't just go from Photobucket to Imgur, there were failed attempts at using Instagram and Facebook for photo hosting in between, and Chester's passing in July coupled with dealing with impending fatherhood (and at this point, the first six weeks of having a baby at home!) really delayed things. But it's finally done, and I can wash my hands clean of Photobucket permanently and move on to other, more exciting things!
Anyway, as with the other pages, the Misc. Guitars update brought numerous new guitars to the site:
-A red acoustic guitar that Joe was photographed with at a Meet & Greet in 2004.
-Numerous PRS guitars that Phoenix played on "Leave Out All the Rest" and "Hands Held High" between 2007 and 2010 (I previously had one "catch-all" entry for these guitars, but I finally took the time to track down as many of them as possible for individual entries).
-An Epiphone DR-200S acoustic guitar that Joe autographed along with numerous other musicians/celebrities in 2007.
-A photo of Joe with Mike's Pignose guitar.
-Phoenix used Mike's white Strat on "Shadow of the Day" at the Chester tribute show.
And here are some updates to existing guitars:
-I moved the Dean guitar that Joe painted in 2006 so it's in chronological order with everything else, instead of being at the bottom of the page.
-The Gold Tone Banjitar from the Minutes to Midnight sessions is definitely a GT-750 model.
-I previously had one entry covering both Joe and Phoenix playing the band's "communal" Takamine acoustic guitars, but this has been split into separate entries, as Phoenix actually used one of these guitars on stage recently for "Sharp Edges" at the Chester tribute show.
-The Jazzmaster photographed in the studio with its pickguard and strings off is actually a J Mascis signature model owned by Ethan Mates.
In other exciting news, Mike has released three new solo songs as the "Post Traumatic EP," and they all have guitar in them! Tabs for these songs are already up on the tabs page. I also added a "Mike Shinoda Solo" tabs directory in my master tabs directory and moved his 2005 VMA's score songs into that folder.
So...what's next? Back to the usual! I've officially resumed recording for my Youtube channel, and plan on having something posted next weekend. My guitar rig has changed quite a bit over the past few months, and I'm excited to record with some new gear for the first time! I'm also working on getting some more tabs done, as well as finishing up with guitar information/general updates to my Reanimation and The Hunting Party tabs. Photos of my gear are coming soon too!
It's been a tough few months for a multitude of reasons, but I think I'm about ready to come out the other side of things and get back to doing what I love doing. I feel good. I hope everyone is feeling good.
