    I had no idea they made a Jazz Chorus stack

    Man, Aptos might be worth the drive! As I recall, part of the magic of the JCs is that the chorus only goes to one speaker and the other has the dry signal, so I wonder how they manage that with the stack and head -- two outputs from the head and two inputs into the stack?

    2nd String Tree on Tele-type??

    Inexpensive, fast/free shipping, checks all my boxes: I installed one after swapping out the original, staggered tuners on my tele for vintage-style 'safety' tuners. Works great

    Chargers v. Raiders - 1-9-22

    Wow, what a game ... what a day! As a Steelers fan, I found it hard to root for the Raiders tonite, but glad they (anybody, really) won! :cool:

    Tuners: TU-3 or Polytune 3 mini?

    Lots of good recommendations above, but is there a specific reason for avoiding a headstock tuner? My TC PolyTune clip works great and frees up space on my board; I've had it a few years now, and the original battery is still going strong.

    Strat Won't Stay Still

    Ok, I think that eliminates the bridge. I can feel your frustration. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with some good advice.

    Strat Won't Stay Still

    I wonder if your bridge is moving. How many tremolo springs do you have? I have been much happier with one of my Strats since installing a full compliment of 5 springs -- much more consistent now.

    Locking Guitar Straps

    This isn't the most popular answer but I love Ernie Ball strap locks -- except that they don't sell the strap buttons separately. They look kind of big and dorky, but they work great for me. I use one strap for most of my guitars, and it's very easy to swap them. The outlier is my Danelectro...

    New Eagles

    Yeah, a new album with great songs would be the ticket. New band, same songs ... yawn

    Favorite Cooking Show

    +1 for Same the Cooking Guy. Great sense of humor, so even if you're not particularly interested in the dish, it's very entertaining.

    Now that I own a Telecaster...

    That has always been one of my favorite riffs, perfectly suited for a Tele. Banditos by the Refreshments is another good one (among many).

    Dave Grohl -- The Storyteller

    If you subscribe to other forums or watch Dave's youtube videos, you are probably familiar with many of these stories, but it's still a great read. You don't have to like the Foo Fighters (or Nirvana) to enjoy his stories about touring and/or interacting with other music legends. I really...

    Do you look at the fretboard while playing?

    I almost always look at the fretboard unless I'm just strumming a simple I-IV-V or similar. Our bassist has a bad habit of playing in the wrong key, so when it starts sounding like a mess, I need the visual reinforcement to know it's not me. ;)

    High End Guitar Picks

    I bought a BlueChip TD 45 and love it. It really makes a difference, which surprised me. However, I'm not sure I'd replace it if I lost it; as great as it is, the cost is prohibitive -- Dunlop PrimeTones are much better bang for the buck, in my opinion.

    Happy 72 Adrian Belew

    This one always reminded me of Harry Nilsson. Would have been great if they had collaborated.

    Npd. Help is on the way

    Make sure you get the 18v version because the 9v that I had couldn't handle the clams that I was throwing at it.

    I'm not convinced all EMGs sound sterile. I submit this as evidence:

    When I first tried my EBMM Luke II, I thought the EMGs were a little sterile, but I bought it anyway because the neck was so comfortable. When playing it solo, it still sounds a bit sterile, but in our band's mix, it sounds great.

    Do you own any Boss pedals?

    Changed my vote. I had a BF-2 but I replaced it with a Walrus Polychrome. However, I still have a Roland GP-16 (which is a collection of '90s Boss digital effects in a rack unit) fwiw.

    All time best US rock and roll band?

    Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers ... I'm a fan but not a huge fan, but that's what came to my mind immediately

    My favorite Robyn Hitchcock

    Thanks for the reminder! So You Think You're In Love is a great pop song from Perspex Island .. and Ultra Unbelievable Love @ ~4:00

    Meme of the Day. Got any good ones?

    I imagine Jeff Lynne's dog looks like the one on the right!

    The Tremolo Club

    Nice collection! Conspicuously missing a Strymon Flint and a Voodoo Lab Tremolo, but it looks they'd be somewhat redundant, lol.

    HOLIDAY HOOCH - What's your favorite liquor to give or get?

    Bourbon and Port -- this thread has good taste (pun intended). I normally only drink beer (IPAs mostly), but bourbons and ports are always a nice treat.
