    Vintera 50's modified bridge suggestions

    Maybe I got A Friday or Monday guitar. The Vintera bridge, is really OK. but the fret ends are sharp and has a 90% fretboard shape...a slight roll would be cool with me. And bridge does have way too high screws. And a gigbag. For $1049 a cheap hard shell case would have been nice. But it has an...

    Miata Thoughts… Owners Weigh In?

    Got one when they first came out. $1500 down and $199 month. They offered to let me keep the car and just pay $199 a month. But I said no because the 2nd gen had come out with 140 HP and a glass rear window with defroster.. So I ordered one exactly like I wanted it. Guy ran an red light in SS...

    1994 "black label" Squier Stratocaster

    My 1994 "Black Label" that when I wrote Fender with the serial number does not exist just got Hipshot tuners and my brother will have it shielded and LB60 Suhr pups in. Really hope nobody was hurt in the fire. They sure made me a fine guitar.

    Got 2 PRS (Chinese) hollow body standard and a 99 Tennessee Rose this week

    Sending one PRS back...nice but keeper is a feather weight. Gretsch gave me fits with the wood part(please excuse my ignorance) and the roller bar bridge. And the tuners are really sensitive. And does not replace tele or others. But really nice. Chet was the man(Mr. Sandman) and has his pick of...

    Guitar players you are digging at the moment

    I always did me the most...when I have time to play. But suffer from lack of focus. Will hear a note and I switch to that song. Not bragging but know too many dang songs since I have been playing 47 years. And to, me if it doesn't, have 6 strings what's the point. There is gibson and fender and...

    Importance IMHO of playing style

    Its the notes left out to me are more classy than too many notes. Its about the song after all. And 2-3 minutes gets the point across. of course there are exceptions. Think BB King.

    Finally a tele guy

    Love it. Gotta have a tele and the new ones are the best ones to me. They chime, blue, and rock. Tone down jazz.

    Thinking of selling my tele..

    If you do get a guitar with tremolo. I just bought a Music Man Cutlass (2016) has stainless steel frets, compensated nut, tremelo, great neck and too many features to list. Paid $1250. Plays itself. Can be had cheaper than mine, but trusted the guy on is mint and coral red. Locking...

    1994 "black label" Squier Stratocaster

    After playing it awhile, this one is a keeper. A forum member that likes these guitars said he would not pay more than $200 after hearing than I paid $395 with roadrunner HS case. I ordered vintage squire tuners and found a deal on Suhr LB 60 pups today. Electronics and new 5 way switch already...
