    Does anyone use a capo with their electric?

    Our girl singer won’t negotiate song keys and we had to learn three songs in Gb last year. I second the use of G7 capos. They are the most consistent and will not change the pitch of an electric guitar. But, they are expensive! I’ve also had pretty good luck with Shubb capos at a more...

    V Neck Profile

    My favorite is the Clapton Stratocaster neck. I’ve been looking for a V neck Telecaster and can’t find one. I wish I had bought one of those original Vintera 50’s Modified Telecasters when they came out in 2019.

    Who Did You Put Off Meeting Until It was Too Late?

    For me it is Freddie King and Stevie Ray Vaughan. I’m from Dallas, I probably could have seen them a hundred times, but was too busy with life.

    Well, I saw it coming from a mile away but it still hurts, my band has split up.

    My band dissolved in 2018. I spent 5 months learning and chasing down leads and finally got another gig. We’ve been together almost three years now, in spite of COVID-19. I hope it works out for you.

    Share Your ES335

    My first guitar was a 1971 ES335. I foolishly sold it to get a Les Paul Deluxe, which I hated. I bought a 1998 ES335 from a guy at church in 2009. But last year, I found a 1971 ES 335 in mint condition and snagged it. My original1971: My replacement 1971: My 1998:
