Been doing more setup work these days; guitars, amps, simple circuits, all of it. Sat down with the guitar I learned to play on 10 years ago. It's been my only guitar until this year when I picked up a strat. Intention was to perfect the action and give it a general look over. I've always kept the action high and saddles tilted to maintain clarity during bends. My saddles always pulled down toward the E string and wanted to angle themselves, so I obliged. I remember seeing Joe Strummer's tele at the Rock and roll hall of fame and seeing his goofed up bridge, thinking to myself "must be relatively normal for telecasters!" (Was 16 or so at the time) Anyway, now that I'm finished with college and am a bit more level headed, I think "it really shouldn't pull so funky like that". Then I notice that the low E string is nearly off the neck. Uh oh - my neck bows up toward the player! Checked with a ruler, and the neck has a picked on top and rocks the ruler back and forth on the bottom. Go figure! So anyway, I'm thinking a new neck is in order. Gotta straighten the ole girl out. Original neck will probably be hung on the wall somewhere special. Anyway, didn't realize how attached I was to this instrument... I suppose the hunt begins!
