Thank you friend!!
She does indeed. Shelly does too.. got her mom's touch I guess (-;
Thank you Henry!
There has been some law changes in Brazil regarding BRRW this year...
It has never been easy to source legally.. but now it has become a real nightmare.
I wish there was a perfect substitute..
Happy Birfday Gil!!
I hope you have a wonderful day with your family.
Thank you Redd!
I've stopped trying to access these Gil. I'm going to use desert Mulga (desert Acacia) from Western Australia for boards on my prototype builds. It's great. I will be posting my new prototype soon.
Maton is now using Mulga as boards on some of their builds. It's hard, dense and can be very pretty. It's available and by comparison inexpensive.
I know it doesn't help with your '59 replicas but it may be something to consider for your own models.
Thanks for that info Dasher.
Actually, for me, it's the other way around.. the 59's are no problem since they had boards other than BRRW (Palisander, Cocobolo), but for the Bone I normally use slab (yes.. slab as in flat (- cut BRRW to get that warm sweetness (for lack of a better word). Mulga is great but tends to be very dense which puts it on the same level with Madagascar RW which I also love and use for more bite and attack when asked for.
Thanks Gil. Here are a few if my Mulga boards. It's the first time I've used it and yes it's very dense. I'm looking forward to hearing it.
Sadly had to make a small change today. Just doesn't look right
While I was at it I popped the pick guard to try it out.
You're right, chrome jacks don't look right, but they also don't crack and fall off.
Yeah. Word to the wise. Don't squat to adjust a pedal with your prized les Paul around your neck. That's why the relic thing works for me. Don't have to sweat the small stuff so much.
Yeah, that's bad as going to grab your beer, and taking a chunk outta the headstock.
Life happened! Changes for the usable are not bad. Especially when they are fixes. You would have been doing this again next month if you replaced it with plastic. Nobody sees that and it's no big deal. Just a better guitar now. If there's no degradation to the tone I don't care.
And while I'm at it those pickguard a are lame!!!! Throw it far!!!!
Doesn't look right 'cause it looks left!
don't pitch it! you can get like three jackplates out of one.
Ha! The guard will likely go back on. I just get annoyed when it clicks so I'm trying naked for a while.
Naked is the only way to go, Rev. Billy Gibbons said so! They just look and feel so muck better without the guard. Bonamassa's Skinner burst is a prime example. He must have got sick of the click too. It's great seeing how red the burst is under the guard.
