    Ordered some flame maple...

    Looks like the 5th and the 7th piece would match up pretty nicely. Looking great!

    Anybody ever try...

    Glitter! Go purple, don't even try to match the color.

    Beato Signature Les Paul Special

    I could not possibly care less about Beato, hardly know who he is, but I like that guitar a lot. Something about the DC LP Specials! However, I have the P90 Gibson more than covered. I do not need or deserve another one. Dang it!

    Performing with Squier Mini Strat!

    I got one for my son, he picked the colors and we gave it a refin. Plays and sounds great as is, and the only upgrade I did are the tuners. My son started taking lessons two months ago, and his teacher was impressed with how it played. This happened shortly after we refinished :D:eek::lol...

    My original design guitar. Pls let me know what you think

    I like it! Everything looks thoroughly thought out and executed well. Not all original designs leave that impression. Good job!

    What are your favorite non-Fender guitars?

    Low end Gibsons: Melody Makers, Specials, DC's etc. I own a beautiful LP Standard and an SG Standard, but nothing makes me more happy than cheap flat tops with barely any finish on them.

    Body wood comparison

    So one time I did a back-to-back comparison like this: 1. Plugged a guitar in the amp set at fairly loud - strummed and recorded a sample. 2. Removed the pickups, plugged without changing any amp settings - strummed and recorded. The difference was stunning. :P

    Torn between 2 Jaguars

    I agree with the above, go for the Player. I play Jags regularly and I think they have a very unique tonal range and the short scale feels quite different to play.

    P90 fans - have you found anything else as good?

    P-90, Jazzmaster, Tele, not necessarily I that order are my favorite pickups. I don't think anything out there sounds like P90, or the other two for that mater.

    Paranormal/Un explained things

    If I were a better writer I could go in a more detail about this pair of orange socks, but in short: my socks disappear in the dryer all the time... I got nothing more exciting, unfortunately.

    I am shocked the USPS loses $$... SHOCKED I tell ya!

    I had a small package stuck for 11 days in a 'receiving' facility 30 min. away from my home. The package came from from across country in about usual time, and then it got stuck for 11 days before arriving. Another package had a similar fate, with 9 days of wait in the same place. Eight (8)...

    I am shocked the USPS loses $$... SHOCKED I tell ya!

    Also, the removal of sorting machines that happened late summer last year could't have helped the cause. The map below is from August 2020.

    Les Paul Special Tribute P-90

    That looks like a gorgeous piece of mahogany! Great color and grain on that one. You scored!

    Sometimes I think I want a jazzmaster, which I have never owned nor cared for.

    If forced to pick just one guitar to take to a deserted island, I'd have a really hard time choosing between my 52 AVRI and one of the two MJT Jazzmasters I put together. There's something about the Jazzmaster tone, the slightly softer attack, the ringing of overtones from the stings behind the...

    players who were around in the '70s: what pedals did you have then?

    These are the only pedals I had in the '70s through late '80s.

    Show your covid builds

    Thanks! Minwax Lacquer, no grain filler, built it up gradually. It will sink in a bit over time, but I like that look.

    Show your covid builds

    Not really a build, but a partial finish. The body was too pretty, a two-piece center seam, so I saved the original color and shot gloss over it. Process: Before: Chillin' with the sibling, looking at clouds:
