    What? why? are we afraid of the dreaded terrorist exploding Telecaster bridge pickup, did you buy it from the GRU?
    Call the Trumpster he'll fix it for you.:p

    It's a dangerous Gotoh bridge I bought from Stewmac. I live in Sweden, it's stuck in customs here. We don't really trust the Trumpster I guess ;)

    Of course you know how biased he is about Norwegians...which might bring into question his rationality, not that there is anything wrong with Norway, anymore than there is anything questionable about fast talking flim-flam New York grifters selling real estate in the Florida Everglades with swimming pools.

    Very nice. I know that swedish customs and imports can be a problem. I sent a friend there a telecaster a few years ago. it took weeks to get through customs and ended up costing him a couple hundred dollars to pick it up.
    Where in Sweden are you? I've spent a lot of time there. (And am fairly fluent in Swedish)

    start with the trumpster and his representing for Norwegian emigration. It is rumored that Swedes and Norwegians in the northern mid west wisconsin north dakota, michigan,south dakota have a friendly but long standing dispute over subjects like, intelligence, sex appeal best and worst tasting traditional dishes, best/worst drivers, whose children are the ugliest, which group in middle age can really qualify as being shaped like russet potatoes, a friendly on going competition regarding such things.
    The part about fast talking flim-flam New York grifters selling real estate in the Florida Everglades with swimming pools is a perspective on how some New Yorkers (though certainly not the Prez), are referenced by both the aforementioned groups. do you understand ? hmmmm?

    Hmmm, I also live in Sweden, would be interesting to exchange some tips on where we get our supplies from... for gotoh tuners for example, I found a Japanese seller on eBay ordering directly from the factory.

    Hej! Gotoh tuners köpte jag direkt från GMF som sitter i Gävle.Tips om du inte känner till dem. Då slipper man allt strul med tull etc. Även gitarrdelar.se är bra. Dom sitter i Blackeberg i STHLM. Men just det stallet jag ville ha hade varken GMF eller Gitarrdelar.se så jag fick beställa från Stewmac.com Det var den leveransen som fastnade i tullen. Men den kom igår!!!

    Tack för tipsen! Jag kände inte till GMF, ska kolla ! Jag fick också köpa ett gotoh stall från USA, men som tur var gick den inte genom tullen :)
    Men nu är det bara att fortsätta, eller hur ? ;)

    Funny.... I was following along quite well, until the Swedish was broken out. I must say, I saw your latest Instagram post.... and the guitar sounds good! It also looks good to, nice job on the build!

    In my house growing up with swedish heritage we specialize in Swedish and Norwegian jokes as a sign of love and unity.

    I'm happy you like my humble efforts. I am bedroom groomed and trained I have no Idea of what I'm doing and like it that way.:oops:
