    Squier standard tele?

    Possibly looking to build or buy/modify a tele. I’m usually more traditional classic fan. But find myself wanting to play with one. Maybe do some fun pickups, kill switch. Individual toggles for pickups. Kinda inspired by Jack Whites newer blue tele. I enjoy building. But there’s also a red...

    Finally got to see them!

    Went with my dad to see the Old 97’s for my birthday. Show was in Ft. Worth last Friday but was “away” from the website so hadn’t gotten to share. Dad got me into them years ago. So it was really great to go see them. (First time for both of us). Great band with a great stage performance. I...

    Older wiser advice needed!!

    For those who remember or even care lol. I’m a pit master. I love barbecue. I work at a froo froo taco joint (similar to Torchy’s or Velvet Tacos, if you are familiar) but we smoke all our meats… It’s the first job in a while I’ve been happy with. I’m in a good spot staff wise. I’m respected...

    Learning a song by ear.

    I’m horrible at it. But several songs I like don’t have tabs or chords. I’m slowly learning and getting better. But do any of y’all have any tips, tricks, or ways you do it?

    Favorite Small Bands?

    As guitarists and musicians in general we tend to admire big name acts and almost “idolize” the players we loved growing up. What about the middle ground. Seems most of us are either doing our own recording things or playing weekend gigs. what are some of your favorite “Working Class” or...

    Stupid rookie mistake. Pickup rings

    Bought a AS73 used recently. Noticed the pickup rings were cracked and not curved for the body. Went to replace them. And completely forgot to verify what direction the pickup ring slope should face. lol they seem to be leveled here. But want to make sure.

    Sub $1000 semi hollow body?

    I am looking in the $800 cap. Ideally at least. But want a semi hollow. It can be a sleeper budget guitar. Or a real nice one. But what mid-mid high range semi hollows do y’all recommend?

    Finally got around to “fixing” my old tele.

    Err well more like got tired of the black. I’m a traditional guy. when I got it over a year ago it had the black plate with the chrome knobs. I put a set of black knobs on just to make it match. Still didn’t like it, but looked better at least. So I didn’t really worry about it. Finally...

    Help price a MIJ Fender JD Tele?

    If this is the appropriate place I apologize. I’m not 100% on selling it I like it. But it doesn’t get played much and I’m wanting a 335 style. It’s a 1995 MIJ Jerry Donahue signature telecaster. It’s not the cleanest shape. But they seem to range (sold prices) plus the current market...

    How to choose tubes?

    I’m new to amps. Well besides the “plug in… yep. Sounds good!” Haha. Recently got a 2012 Fender Excelsior. I love it. Gonna order the Eminence 1518 Legend 15” (seems to be the go to for this amp) figure while I’m at it. May as well upgrade the tubes. Don’t think it NEEDS them? But at the same...

    Looks old and cool. Date stamp said 05/2012. Still cool and trips my trigger. 13 watt 1x15 speaker. get this!! It has a guitar, mic, and an Accordion input :lol:. Not quite sure why. But lucky an electric mandolin sounds pretty cool through the accordion setting. anyway. Anyone ever use one...

    Volume/wah pedal

    Ok. So I have my board how I wanted it. Or so I thought. Everything is nice and secured down. Even my cables are zipped up underneath the board. Super happy with it. buuuut. I think I want to add a volume pedal. Eyeballing the Morley power volume/wah. But don’t want to get a bigger board. And...

    Out shopping with my wife today.

    We were out getting new jeans. And she picked out a shirt. I must say I very much approve of the shirt. She said “I like the mustard yellow!” My response was “I like that Shell Pink!”

    For those who know I am a pit master and a manager at a kind of hip, froo froo taco joint. (Not my main style being a trained pit master. But owners are friends. And another friend/chef is the consultant and kitchen manager, and they give us creative freedom. So can’t ask for more) anyway 10...

    NUD lol. New ukulele day.

    Is a old (not sure how old. Online says 1960s?) Lyra ukulele. I think it’s supposed to be a baritone. But I liked the size of it body wise. So had the shop owner set it up as a tenor ukulele tuned whole step down. Sounds cool and can always capo it to bring it up to standard. I dig it it cost…...

    Modifying 1995 MIJ Fender Jerry Donahue.

    First off I apologize if this is in the wrong forum, think I got it right. But some of y’all are so uptight I could make diamonds out of coal. I have a JD tele. It doesn’t get played as it should as I have a tele I prefer. I have been thinking about turning it into a Nashville Tele. And adding...

    NAD!! (Used content)

    Gotta love a sneaky wife with a good heart and memory. She knows how much I love my Crate VC50. And remembers me seeing the VC20 at a local pawnshop. Our anniversary is the 25th (one year) I suck at keeping secrets. So I have her her present Monday. I wake up and this beauty is in my room.
