    What' your approach to gear buying?

    Kind of depends. I'm more in favor of having nicer things. I'd rather have one really high end instrument than 3 just ok ones. I have high end fender and a high end Gibson. That said I do also have an Epiphone Sheraton semi hollow that is a great player. I still want to round out my collection...

    Actually got it Saturday. I joined this forum originally to gain info about doing a parts caster job on my affinity tele. But I ended getting rid of that and getting this instead. Copy paste of photos and brief review from another forum because I’m lazy :p but I thought y’all would appreciate...

    Top load 3 saddle bridge recommendations

    Hello all, I’m in the process of planning out parts to partscaster my affinity tele. The plan is do bring it vaguely close to spec of the American deluxe I used to have. I know the am.
