I always understood it that the term came from the pre-Zamboni days in hockey. Whatever team was down at the end of the period would have to hose down the ice to help resurface it between periods, hence "hosers".randy wrote:I am a Canadian and a 1959 Jazzmaster owner. I never heard of hosers until the movie releaes of Strange Brew. I think it may be a characterization created for the movie. Don't know fore sure eh.
About parts suppliers, I am looking for someone who provides good quality repro headstock decals. I need one for my Jazzmaster and can't seem to find a source. Please advise.
Unfortunately I have not been able to do any hosing this year with our terribly warm winter here
