  1. geez, terrible news.
  2. Amen to geography.... I'm in Thailand. I use Elixirs on favorite guitar(s), regulars on guitars I like, but not as much. Strings blowing off is a sign it's time to switch guitars... Oh, I like 11's on electric or acoustic. Fat enough for fullness, skinny enough to keep fingers happy
  3. Seems to be a hollowbody, given floating wood bridge... am I right? That Bigsby would make me worry a tad as it's got that one anchor screw on the soundboard. I've seen split tops where someone puts that model on a full hollow body, maybe on this forum. If it is hollow, I wonder if putting a little block under that screw to reinforce. Not a fan of clear pickguards... maybe get some black contact paper (or other color) and put on underside of guard? Easy to do, bit of fun & give more of a vintage look, hide the support hardware Other than that, lovely guitar, great price, yada ya

    Also might try putting her sleeping hand into a small dish filled with guitar picks. Hear some have had success with this method

    Sounds like you have a wonderful wife. So what's next on the list?
  6. So Peter Jackson's been nipping, tucking and putting together his own version of Let It Be.... looks like lots more fun. The earlier edition was just too depressing (for me anyway). This sort of happy meal, leaving out bit where cattle become burgers. Jeez, the collection of Beatles guitars he has during his intro... oy! "May I have a fireglo, kind sir?". I can say no more.
  7. I have an older AF95: wonderful build, lovely... but stock pickups were blah. Got a pair of Parson street humbuckers from StewMac (about $100) and OMG did that make a huge difference. Would have a killer for relatively little cash.
  8. A bit late, but I used some regular typing paper slide back and forth between the contacts to clean out the carbon buildup. Used to do same with Aurora HO cars back (way back) when I was young.
  9. Oh.. Reverend makes many P90 guitars, gloss black. Maybe pick up a used one? Brilliant guitars... Rev gits
  10. You do realise that with 6+ criteria, you really put yourself in a very very small box... Been cruising around Reverb... many can hit 4 of the marks... P90s are a bit retro, so double cuts no so many. Did find one (so far) that seems to tick all the boxes: Epiphone Wilshire P-90s... but has dots. G&L fits bill (mostly)
  11. I live in Thailand: hot, humid enough and beach salt air. Grant gives good advice. Will your guitars be in aircon or at least somewhat dehumidified room(s)? My Tacoma jumbo's top swelled up so much almost unplayable... settled down later... I don't use aircon much as I wanted to (and have) acclimated myself to climate here. Unless you isolate away from humidity, your acoustics will get a somewhat "wet cardboard" quality of sound. Strings: I don't know about string prices in Okinawa, but on my trips to USA I do bring lots of strings back with me. Enviro packed or Elixir (only coated ones t
  12. I have a Vox HDC77 with what they call coax pickups, each pu with switch to go between "lead, crunch and clean" (their description). Hadn't played in couple of months, and when I did noticed appreciable difference between neck and bridge (bridge about 25% volume of neck). Tried height adjustment (nope). Cleaned jack, gingerly cleaned 3 way pu selector. unscrewed pu, omg not your typical wiring (sorry I didn't take photo)... I'm antsy about trying to pull the harness out of this, and don't know any techs here in Thailand I would trust to work on it. So question or two: is there an agreed upo
