    RIP Marvin Lee Aday aka Meatloaf

    Wow, sad news. He was certainly unique. I respected his full-on commitment and sense of humor. I got to meet Carla DeVito in '76, right before she went on tour with the Loaf, that was cool. I still have a crush on her too. RIP, good sir.

    neck debate

    I agree with the crowd: A mahogany neck will be fine with either a flat or an angled headstock. I have a Musikraft mahogany neck on a Tele, it's a great neck. I don't see any possible advantage to adding a scarf joint. Pictures, please. I stuck a maple veneer on top of the headstock, to...

    Can anyone identify this pickup?

    Or a Squire. Those wires look Chinese to me. What guitars did you have that it might have come from?

    Suggestions for putting a decent “dad band” together?

    I'm lucky enough to be in a Dad band, although. it's more like a Grandpa band, as we're all over 60. I was in a cover band, Moms and Dads, for a while too, but the C thing ended that. I met the other guitar player through a mutual friend, we've been playing together for 6 years or so. We've...

    What's your hometown's claim to fame

    You mean recently? Looks like the last famous thing to happen here was some white folks moved in in 1616: The first European to settle at Biddeford was physician Richard Vines in the winter of 1616-1617 at Winter Harbor, as he called Biddeford Pool. This 1616 landing by a European predates the...

    Strat resonance issue low E string - can you help please?

    Sounds to me like there's that little hump in the neck, around the 12th fret. You may want to consider raising the saddle on that string a tad, or adjusting the truss rod a smidge to get a bit more relief. It may be the pickup being too high like Peegoo said.

    Zippo! Who still has one?

    I have a couple. I got to take a ride on a destroyer class navy ship once, they had a little souvenir shop on board; the Zippo I got there turned out to be brass plated and it got all corroded and bogus-looking over the years. I have fond memories of being 9 or 10 years old, somehow my friends...

    NGD - The one I always thought was out of reach

    That's a holy grail axe, nice going! Just one thing, make sure you put a note somewhere, so in the unlikely and unthinkable event of an unexpected demise on your part, she doesn't sell it for the price of a used Squier. Just sayin'...

    2nd String Tree on Tele-type??

    It has never even dawned on me that a tree could make a difference in how a string sounds. Great, another thing to worry about. :lol:

    Any reason I couldn't use this as a tone cap in a guitar?

    Yeah, no problem.
