Topic: Meet Dreadnoughtus

A giant sauropod dinosaur found in Argentina is the largest land animal ever discovered for which a body mass can accurately be calculated.

Big acoustic guitars named after large battleships? Not hardly!

Re: Meet Dreadnoughtus

A Canadian comedian named Charlie Farqhuarson (Don Herron) once described these large herbivores like this:

"This here big feller had the body of a hippie-optimist, a neck like a g'why-why-raff, and coulda picked the tea leaves from the toppa the tree like it sez in yer Red Rose advertisements. Y' woulda hafta stand on toppa yer stool fer t' milk 'em."

But seriously, I'm not sure where the name "dreadnought" came from for that certain acoustic guitar's body shape.

ACOUSTICS:  Cordoba Acero D10-CE / LaPatrie "Concert" / Takamine GD30CE-12NAT
ELECTRICS:  EP Les Paul Custom Pro
AMPS:  Traynor YCS50 / Peavey VK212 / Traynor AM150T
EFFECTS: Boss ME-80 Multi-effects / Morley Wah-Dist-Vol combo pedal

Re: Meet Dreadnoughtus

sounds like a heavy metal band, although the write up mentions T Rex so I suppose they must be another Glam Rock band.
Although I've never heard of them they must have been big in Argentina.

Re: Meet Dreadnoughtus
