    Diy musquire. Wilky compensated bridge, all parts Jrgo neck with tru oil, fender orig vintage pickup, wire with the eldred mod. The cocked wah really comes out nice with a bit of od. One big flaw, but it plays nice.

    Another fan of your guitar. It has mojo dripping off of it.

    Dropped a new pickguard assembly into my Jagmaster. Pickups are from AZ Guitar Parts - Desert Dawg Blackbuckers in double cream coils!

    Curious Minds Want to Know...

    Can it be?

    Am I the only TDPRI member with a Fender Strat Jr.? No one else here owns one? C'mon folks, one more and we can start our own Guitar Owners Club!

    A few months ago I got myself a short scale Rickenbacker 325.

    I always heard that short scale guitars can be a bit of a chore to play, and I discovered that is correct. Definitely takes some getting used to.

    I'll add my voice to the chorus of approval to the Creston... and great to see so many Duo Sonics on here. I currently have three short scales, which are my main instruments for playing original material. I've shared the Duos (a '58 with some changed parts and a refinished and modded '96 MIM) a couple of times before, don't think I've mentioned the SG. I made it myself after lusting after Neko Case's SG Special Tenor for years and never seeing one come up for sale. The body was a Korean made blank, I suspect intended for a Samick Epi but never used, which I reprofiled to more vintage correct contours, and the neck made from scratch. The scale length is 22". This is it alongside my trusty ES355:

    And why not the Duos again?

    I picked up this confusing Duo-Sonic at a garage sale. It has some very old looking features and has been robbed of many key identifying components. I have since started a restoration and found some numbers in the neck pocket. I will include those pictures later. They are not very legible since they were painted over by one of the past owners.

    The headstock has a unique curve, and the bridge plate is also unique. I would like to get a handle on what year and country of origin. I am not even sure that they belong on the old mahogany body that has been several colors in it's life.

    I have 4 - a JV Squier HH, 2 Valley Arts, and a Tele JA-90


    I think it's an evolution and I prefer playing them over my 25.5 guitars...


    and with 7's on them, oh hell yeah

    I'm not cool enough to pull off a guitar like Maggieo's. Mine is a plain white '78 Musicmaster with a Bare Knuckles Apache in it. Tres vanilla!

    DUDE, i really NEED to listen to your musicmaster-ed tele! because i want to build me an 3/4 tele, or just a bridge pickuped "esquire" one. i wish i could listen how it can sound, before i do, so i'll decide between a 3/4 22.75" scale or a 24" scale (that i've already seen some videos) - i have an already 24 sloted fingerboard, 25,5", so if i cut at 3rd fret i got 22.75", if i cut at 2nd, i got 24" hehe.

    if you can do a video, it would be great. playing clean, diferent styles, most rhythm... many thanks

    big cheers from Brazil south!
