    Who wants to play guitar on the toilet?

    That looks like the "lawsuit" version. Better get one now before the Big F makes them change the peghead shape!

    He wasn't playing what you thought he played

    I didn't doubt you, I just never heard that. I think it's great!

    Four years ago... (very sad)

    So sorry. Give those kids a BIG hug for their Mom!

    He wasn't playing what you thought he played

    I have to say I never heard that one. For real?

    James Taylor and a...TELE?

    Lenox is the next town right below Pittsfield, where that show was shot.

    Guess what came in the mail today?

    My first guess was your AARP membership, until I saw you're 15. Cool guitar!

    James Taylor and a...TELE?

    I saw that too, pretty cool show. He sounded pretty slick on his Tele. I stumbled onto that show after it had started & about 5 minutes in, I realized that it was shot at the newly renovated Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, Mass. My sister lives in Pittsfield & we had gone there in the fall to...

    Bridge Positioning assuming a 25 1/2" scale

    I have found that having a Fender P/G on hand is really useful in general layout. The neck position is a given & from there, everything else relates to the P/G in one way or another. Use a real Fender product though.

    Basic Setup Question

    I understand the concept of the tape in/out-control room thing but it got complicated in my head when we started recording more than one instrument at a time. I had another mixer on hand & found it easier to use my Mackie (with Alt 3-4 used for 4-in) for my input mixer & a Yamaha MG 10 as an...

    Guitar Cables You Swear by!

    For the most part, I have cable I swear at.

    Basic Setup Question

    I don't know if that's a common problem or not as I'm figuring this all out as I go too. But I had a similar issue as well, recording parts with other guys at the same time & this was the best $20 I spent in a while. It's a cheap, little Behringer stereo headphone amp. You could hook this up...

    Any Electrovoice Love Out There?

    Believe it or not, that speaker still works, other than the cone being disintegrated. The voice coil is still doing it's thing. I've put alot of mileage on it so I can't be too bummed it quit, which was in the middle of fairly low-volume date. I think the paper just dried out. It was VERY...

    Decent amp multimeter? for new build

    I finally replaced the Radio Shack ones I had but the Flukes were big bucks. I ended up getting an Extech for around $50. Digital, auto range, non-contact voltage detector (for house wiring) & even has a Type K thermocouple input so I can check my cooker temperature when I'm cooking BBQ! I...

    Best Bridge for MIM Jazz Bass

    I replaced my MIM PU with Fralins, a worthwhile upgrade. I also put on the same bridge that Dave W mentioned. It works fine but now I don't think I'd bother.

    Which tuners on "Micawber"?

    I think he meant the middle of all five, not the middle of the Teles. Very cool pics! Backstage at a show?

    And now for my 4,000th post!

    I broke into "4-figures" just today.

    Router mishap - suggestions?

    Looks like it's time for a flat spot! Ron Kirn says he intentionally leaves off the flat spot from the templates because it's easy enough to add if you want it. It's your option. I usually put them on mine. I like them fairly subtle but I've seen some very angular one. I don't think they look...

    GFS Repro 1960´s or GFS-1950'S ?!

    When I did the 50's bridge/Vintage neck, I found the neck PU couldn't keep up with the bridge. Second time around I used the hot 60's bridge with a neck PAF which is a great combination.

    Your number one album of all time, and why?

    Funny, that one jumped into my head too. One of my all-time favorites. I don't know if it's THE album but..... With all it's imperfections, TtN has more than most, of whatever it is that got people playing music in the first place.

    today vs. 5 yrs. ago

    I did most of my FT playing out in SC but moved away about 7 years ago. My understanding from friends still there is that it's pretty much the same. Since I been in Vermont, opportunities for bigger venues have decreased some, pay hasn't changed at all (maybe even a little lower) & there seems...

    Help, Cat Keeps Messing On My Pedalboard!

    I am told that there is a scented spray that cats find offensive, that you use on couches, rugs etc. to keep them from clawing that particular item. Might keep your cat away from the pedal board?

    Who goes 'decaff'?

    When I lived in SC, a guy I knew claimed he found himself inline behind Billy Gibbons at the coffee place we frequented (in a hotel). He was terribly disappointed when BG ordered a decaf. Shattered that R & R image for him right there.

    Teles that are made of your country's local wood

    This one is Vermont white pine, probably cut down within a few miles of here. I bought the wood at a local softwood mill. It's now living in South Carolina with my son, at school. My other Tele was made from the same plank but is a translucent white w/a neck HB. As for non-US wood, I have a...
