    Rock on. What model is that? Is yours a thinner, slightly wider neck (compared to a typical Fender Strat)?

    Mine is. Has a real subtle C/V thing going on. Perfectly shaped snd perfect fretwork.

    Desolation Skatecaster. I need to get some better buckers in there, and a tone control would be nice, too.
    But that neck, wow! Thinner and wider than a strat would be, yes, Compound radius, too

    Masked rehearsal last night. Charvel was perfect.

    I have other guitars that I really, really love. But I could see this being my number 1. Every idea I have just seems to work effortlessly on it. The pickups sound superb in a mix.

    In fact, after one song about 1/2 way through our singer was like - that guitar sounds so good. Creamy and bright. Nice.

    Outdoor show tonight.

    Charvel was amazing. Perfect.

    Capacity on the patio was 15. Ha. So a bunch folks spaced out on the sidewalk.

    Here’s a nice pic. I’ve got a surgical
    mask under the bandana. Even though we’re outside and were about 6’ apart (pic is deceiving, I like to be cautious).

    So. Much. Fun. Had one set planned and the venue asked is to do another. Two hours of punk. I’m spent!
