    ipad, garage band and a mic

    Mat I suggest a ipad air with the focus rite I track dock and a descent condenser mic? I use the CAD GXL2200 and I love my little rig. The dock is nice and I keep the ipad in it all the time. It charges the ipad and holds it up at an angle.

    Necks with NO truss rods....?

    Also, I have never used different tang sizes in my compression fretting. Instead I alter the fret slot width. I think that it is easier to "shim" the grove on my scale legnth template with a bit of masking tape than to deal with tang crimpers or buying multiple fret wires with different tang...

    Necks with NO truss rods....?

    I have made several no rods to date. None with unconventional materials. Most were quartersawn maple with ebony boards and two (that I recall) one peice, quartersawn maple as in the fretboard and neck are the same unaltered board. My humble opinion is that they sound better and are MORE stable...

    Sorry homes, but that ain't spalted. That there is burl. To the OP: yup it's not a "real" Fender however, that is not to say that it is not a great guitar depending on the asking price it could be worth it.

    Cheap and expensive Teles the same?

    Ale is one of the oldest beverages humans have produced, dating back to at least the 5th millennium BC and recorded in the written history of Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. There is crap beer and there is good beer. There are good Teles and bad ones.

    Third shift recording studio big idea.

    Ha! Yeah, the best part of living where I live is that it may be 2012 in the rest of the country but it is still 1955 here. You can't even buy booze on a Sunday!:lol:

    Third shift recording studio big idea.

    I love the tumbleweed idea. The wife and are going to retire in a sub 500sq ft home. We have spent many a night looking at tiny houses on the interwebs. As for building codes and whatnot Im not worried at all. I live WAY back in the woods in a rural area.

    Third shift recording studio big idea.

    Hey guys, So I have found myself working third shift again. In full house of my wife, mother-in-law, and 5 small kids sleeping during the day can be a bit tuff. So, I have devised a master plan that will not only give me a quiet place to sleep but also a small recording studio so I can play a...
