    Are you more of a gearhead than an actual player?

    More of a gearhead now. But I would like to devote more time to playing.

    "10 Bands You Should Hate Instead of Nickelback"

    Yeah, I don't really like any of those bands either. And I knew bro country *gag* was a thing. But bro metal? Never heard of that one.

    The Other One...Bob Weir doc on Netflix

    Netflix has some great documentaries. I've also seen the ones about Janis Joplin, Tom Petty, The Eagles and Ginger Baker.

    1st Time "builder"

    You could just sand the surrounding area down to bare wood. Then some wood putty and then refinish the area. It's on the back side of the body, correct? Since you would be the only one who sees it, another option could be to leave it alone. [emoji6]

    Curing fast food addiction

    And sugar. My wife and I watched a movie last weekend called Fed Up. It's basically about how sugar can be 15 times more addictive than cocaine. And how the food industry gets away with what it's doing.

    Saga Tele help

    You may also want to check the neck pocket depth. I have a Saga strat and according to Fender the pocket depth should only be .62", or 5/8" if you use just a standard tape measure. Sadly, mine is .78", just a little over 3/4" deep. So it looks like I'm gonna be using some veneer to bring it up...

    Explain Fender's two types of tremolos to me...

    I would think you get better sustain from the vintage design. If you use logic, six screws help to make better contact with the body than two screws connecting the bridge to the body. Therefore, better energy transfer. Therefore, more sustain. Oops, I didn't see Mark's post. You can delete...

    Get rid of that spare tire, who's up for the challenge??

    I'm doing the local Y as well. I've been doing the Body Pump (weightlifting) and Turbo Kick (kickboxing) classes. I've done Turbo for about 8 months and Pump for about 6. I'm still right around 200 lbs, but I can tell you that I haven't felt this good physically since high school. Doesn't hurt...

    get together in Sacramento/Elk Grove (make guitar bodies)

    Man, I wish I could've made it there. But it's probably a 24 hour drive from the Nanny State of Minnesota. Looks like you all had fun!

    Brad Paisley "Play" album..who bought it?

    I got it for Christmas and I really like it. The tone on "Les Is More" is one that I really like. That and "Waitin' On A Woman" are my favorites.

    Historical Accuracy vs. Modern Improvements

    +1. I like to stick to vintage as much as possible. The only exception being the big frets.

    How Many Still Listening to Pat Metheny?

    I've only heard a few of his albums so I guess I can't give that good of an assessment of him. But I do really like the album he did with Dave Holland and Roy Haynes; Question And Answer. I wish he did stuff like that all the time.

    +1. I'll happily err on the side of caution here.

    Guitars you never expected to be your they are.

    I ran into the same thing with 335's. I never thought much of them until I started listening to more and more jazz. Now I would just love to get my mitts on one.

    Ever try to find a pic of an old girlfriend on the internet?

    I was in a class with a girl who was a sophomore when I was a senior. Back then she was hot. And I looked at pics of her now and she's even hotter. We didn't talk much let alone date (curse my self esteem issues back then). But it's funny what time can do.
