    Won’t be playing for a while…

    "I discovered that it’s very sharp." -- yes you did!! Been there, done that. That's going to leave a mark.

    Need help deciding: a guitar that complements the Telecaster Humbuckers with coil split. Lots of different sounds in these guitars. I don't play with a lot of dirt or drive, but I bet they would chew it up.

    Who coined this Telecaster term?

    "he used cause they were cheaper than the new fangled "acrylic" finishes, and plus nitro dries quicker to the touch so he could push em out the door faster." -- sounds legit...I mean they were "just guitars", built to have the necks replaced when they wore out. It's not like people were going...

    replace hot water heater prophylactically?

    *shrug* if you got the money, and it's in a spot that can cause damage... it's not bad idea. Mine sits a couple feet from my I keep and eye (and ear) on it. Luckily the last time mine blew a gasket, it was the bottom ring, and sprayed water all over the floor, unfinished concrete...

    Thinking about a serious career change

    At the end of the day, you regret the things you didn't do....not the stuff you did. If you only have yourself to look out for and provide for...then it's truly up to you. Single guy can live off almost nothing. A decent grill and some paper plates, and you're all set.

    Screw securing PCB on Fender HRD isn't coming loose, HELP!

    if it turns freely in both directions....It sounds to me like the screw head is twisted off. You need to get a small thin blade of some kind under the head and pry upwards while unscrewing it. If it's plastic...pry it up and unscrew until you can get it with a small pair of pliers...then just...

    What Is Your Snow Removal Strategy?

    I'm a 2-3 kind of guy.... gotta keep on it.... it's easy to get lazy, and wind up with a bigger problem then snow (like a ton of ice underneath that snow you were to lazy to shovel). Also...if you keep cement / sidewalks clear, even a small amount of sun can warm up the cement and cause a lot of...

    Do you look at the fretboard while playing?

    depends on the song... if I've played it 1,000 times muscle memory pretty much kicks in, and I can be off in la la land thinking about new tires for the car. If I'm not 1,000% on it, then yea, I pay attention to where my hand is and focus on whats coming up next.
