    Legend is...

    that the Telecaster was still in tune for the rest of the concert and the headstock didn't break.

    Favorite country song - Got one?

    Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson are good listens. John Denver has several. I like a lot of the Alabama 80's country. Eagles 1970's Country Rock too.

    Indio Tele (de) Construction

    Wow, definitely looks like a basswood knotty pine Telecaster if a translucent or natural finish were to be it's fate. I can see why they paint them. Headstock for a bird/beak reshape looks pretty good.

    What amp would you keep?

    I'm keeping all of what I have. I don't have the time nor patience to flip something that were from the Island of Misfit Toys when I found them. They were really white flags of surrender. And since I fixed a few guitars to better than they were, they're actually pretty good guitars. The amps are...

    Need Help Reversing the Irreversible

    Yep, the perfect excuse to buy another guitar (new or preowned). Leave that one alone or sell it to fund a fixed bridge Telecaster.

    DC Jr but two pickups

    What did the measurements for the spacing between the neck & bridge P90's end up being. The neck P90 from the 22nd fret. Just curious as to how it compares with the $ 129.99 GC Epiphone LP Special I P90 I ended up with. A1 => A2, centerline of 22nd fret to the intonated Saddles for the 3rd &...

    Sad day in baseball

    Tatum ankle injury early in the 1st quarter on the 1st possession was his excuse for a 14 point game. He wasn't Mahomes tough enough to walk it off & have a bigger game. C's lost by 19, but he probably would've needed closer to 34+. Butler showed up finally with 28 points. Heat had 5 more 3...

    Are you a steak purist? Or do you get fancy with it?

    Beef or any meat for that matter is a matter of the quality of cut or fillet (chicken or fish). Grades factor in for marbling & in a way are like tone woods for guitars. If I'm paying the going price for pampered Kobe beef, the beef better not need seasoning or a sauce. Rest asured Kobe beef is...

    Ruminations on the P90s in my new build

    Using the Stew Mac calculator for fret spacing the 21st fret of a 22 fret as a 24.75 scale neck adds another .413 inches between the centerlines of the 21st & 22nd frets. That would have to be scaled dimension for a 21 fret neck as a 25.5 scale neck. I mean on both either a 24.75 vs 25.5, the...

    Sad day in baseball

    27-15 is what the Phillies went in those 42 games, their roster is star packed & can outscore their opponents, often times in a huge single inning. Their pitching blows and this season, take Sunday's game vs the Braves, they allowed a 7 run 1st inning. Game was over before the Phillies knew it...

    Sad day in baseball

    162 games, every team wins 60 & loses 60 games, the other 42 determine whether a team is great or not. It's whether a team wins or loses the 1 run games or not.

    “Aging” a metallic body color with Starcast Amber

    PGM > LPB is my vote. No offense intended for the LPB, but I'm more of a Bianchi Celeste for blue or I prefer the darkest of blues in a midnight blue. Caribbean aquas & greens, even Pacific Island ocean water blues.

    Did I Ever Tell You About The Time This Showed Up At Work?

    The 1939 Shure Unidyne microphone grill was inspired by the 1937 Oldsmobile Six.

    25 cents for a cup of coffee, that's all I'll pay!

    Coffee, I go with Great Value K-cups at the Wal-Mart. 96 K-cups for $ 25. The K-cups are about 25 cents a pod, then there's the creamer & sugar, the water. Those ingredients probably get it closer to 40-50 cents a cup ?

    Ruminations on the P90s in my new build

    The other thing I noticed about the Tele build of this thread that the measurements that I provided, The Epiphone LP Special P90 is a 22 fret neck, the Tele build has 21 frets. Not sure how that difference plays into the measurements for scaling an exact scale model for pickup location, it's...

    Ruminations on the P90s in my new build

    I would think to get a Telecaster dual P90 & LP dual P90 to space exactly to scale and have the pickups capture the relative string vibrations for length, you'd have to have a LP with P90's & take the measurements relative to the LP's scale length of 24.75 & locations that would be from the...

    T type guitar with 1 pickup to do it all

    I would think a TL with the P90 would sound very similar to the LP Jr. I'm just not that good to do it with a 1 pickup configured single cut slab of a body by ear. It's why I have the Special P90, all the parts are there for me to use. I almost would think the TL with a P90 or both would have to...

    T type guitar with 1 pickup to do it all

    Gibson/Epiphone has a Junior and they thought a dog ear P90 in the bridge goes from Jazz clean to rock & roll distortion. I tend to agree with the clean to gritty P90 single coil(s), but more so for getting into a LP Special P90 for neck & bridge. The original Fender Telecaster with the single...

    lighter strings : do they break more ?

    The 9 usually breaks sooner than any of the others, makes you feel like that a 9.5 or 10 for the High E, that would've lasted longer was better for a set of strings ? Even if it was just another few sessions ?

    Which side of the pick do you use?

    Depends upon the shape, triangular picks, it doesn't seem to matter. Some are OCD and the labeling matters face up or down ? The triangle & it's like getting 3 picks for the price of one. Me, I can't seem to lose a guitar pick I haven't bonded with, but I still use the pick because throwing it...

    I might have to lawsuit myself (apartment life)

    I'd like to see photos of the area. If it's anything like USA, there is an easement that's property that the city/town owns between the physical road & your actual property. Is this like a cluster of duplexes & single townhome dwelling properties ? Apartments on the USA are stacked living with...

    Anyone Else Into Hardcore/Punk 1979-1989?

    Been listening to L7 recently, sound a lot like Joan Jett does punk & I like it. Also Green Day, since he uses P90's for LP Juniors. I just play the Special P90 I have in Bridge position. But heck, there's video evidence that BJ Armstrong gives away 2017 GC LP Special I P90's.

    Cord Length

    From what I read 18'6" is the magic cord length where it starts to happen. Wireless is the way to go, but recharging the battery & it might be prudent to buy a 2nd wireless set as a backup or something to alternate while one is charging.
