    Paint & Primer

    The way cars are painted today is base coat- clear coat. You’re in NY. You should be able to find a place that caters to auto collision repair shops. PPG Universal Base is where you get the color. Clear with two-part automotive urethane. A gallon of urethane will cost you in excess of 2...

    I have an ex-coworker who visibly pales anytime DNA testing and services like 23AndMe are mentioned. Sort of makes a person wonder.

    New to me 1976 Martin HD-28

    I have a 73 D-28 and as far as I can tell, the bridge/saddle is/are in the correct place. I am sure that there were many sets of "templates" to assist in bridge placement with varying degrees of "wear". Martin produced 20,000 or so guitars in 1973, most of them D-sized. That's a hundred or so...
