    Giving up Drinking

    I drank from the age of 13, sometimes more successfully than others. Quit (finally) 6 years ago, and luckily was sober through the losses of 2 sisters, both parents, and finally my wife last year. I could not have made it through all that if I'd still been drinking. Good for you! God bless.

    How Difficult Is Pedal Steel Really?

    My experience is that a cheap model like the Maverick won't play in tune no matter how hard you try. Save up and buy a good steel.

    ‘80s Harmony Acoustic H-370

    Pretty sure it's lacquer of some sort, possibly built by Samick. I worked for a major importer of Korean guitars from 1985 to 1994. Most Korean imports were fairly decent at that time.

    Knife Sharpener?

    I've got a regular old stone that I oil with 3-in-1 Oil. I could shave with my pocket knife. I use it to open boxes and everything else, and sharpen it when I need to do so.

    Removing the Yellow

    It's NOT tobacco! The yellowed lacquer is nitrocellulose that the factory sprayed after the decal was applied. UV rays turned it yellow. You are in WAY over your head...

    What is the "official" commercial country music vocal accent, and can it be taught?

    The problem is that current country music requires that weird, non-localized accent that some people in boardrooms have decided is a "COUNTRY" accent. Just one more reason I don't listen to that "music."

    How was the local band scene in 1983?

    In 1983 I was playing 5 to 7 nights a week, mostly covers, some originals. That was the year I got a publishing deal with ATV (now STV Sony). Most radio stations still did their own programming, and local bands could get regular airplay if they had a "single," which was generally a 45 rpm record...

    A Telecaster that we have all heard more than we can imagine….

    No wonder you are so concerned about the janky neck, etc.. Tommy Tedesco is probably the king of all session guitarist! Too busy playing on every hit song from the 60's and 70's to worry about whether his custom shop guitar with paper-in-oil caps, offset unobtanium bridge saddles and billion...

    Tips on widening nut slots???

    I think how the nut is filed is the single most important thing in setting up a guitar. And you can't put back any material you file away. Maybe consider paying someone with experience to do this work for you...
