    New mod - Humbucker and a short tele bridge

    I love double bound bodies. Very nice! I have a pine partscaster that has a cut bridge but with a tele pup.

    Old Fashioned drink recipe-do you have one?

    No but my son-in law does. And we just got back from the Keys and my brother and I ordered one at every bar we stopped at, didn't have a bad one but some were better than others.

    Providing weapons to local thugs: avast, me swabbies!

    What's better than a New Guitar Day?

    My feelings exactly. I get way more exited about taking one of my guitars, which I own because I love them, to my luthier buddy to have set-up or work done. Number one, he's a great guy to hand out with and number two is that whatever I take him plays great after he's done with it.

    My depressing open mic pity party.

    When I first started playing out in the 80's, there was a tiny little bar our 3 piece would play on Friday nights. The owner loved us but I was trying to learn to front this band. She paid us every night for about 6/8 months to suck, IMO. She enjoyed us, we worked hard, and eventually got...
