  1. Thanks, Will do I've looked at these for years so it's about time
  2. Musicians Friend Stupid Deal of the Day Dean acoustic bass guitar $169 https://www.musiciansfriend.com/bass/dean-eab-acoustic-electric-bass/519943000091000 If it's playable it has to be worth it. If not I can send it right back
  3. Thot something was wrong when I saw the ads. I only occasionally check in these days and this is one more discouragement
  4. Hey, great to see you stopping by the old hangout. I actually followed the build thread with great anticipation. The results justified the anticipation. I hear that choir “ahhh” when I look at it
  5. According to Seymour Duncan ,if the pickup has non adjustable poles you need better pickups.
  6. Nice rustic look. I really like thinlines. Play it in good health
  7. Looks good, how about more info on the body. What kind of wood and finish?
  8. I was doing something similar with E.C.’s “I Can’t Stand It”
  9. Sounds like you’re having fun as usual. Nice work bringing that Gretsch back to life
  10. I’m a retired industrial mechanic and jack of all trades from Lancaster Pa. I play mostly acoustic in a praise band but mostly electric at home . I’ve always been partial to hollow body and semi hollow body guitars but lately find myself hooked on telecasters Gary
  11. Just shows how handicapped some “musicians” are . He even needed sheet music.
  12. Ever hear of the sounds of silence?
  13. What do you mean ? He's been silent for a long time You write or play a note, and then where does the next one come from? The silence. But only if we're listening for it. Otherwise, our playing becomes a stream of run-on sentences that has no meaning. No subtlety. No breath.
  14. Looks like the perfect cabin fever reliever. HNGD
  15. Basic economic principle of supply and demand, like you said ,the word is out.
  16. Go easy and don’t over do it. Give the neck a chance to settle in after adjusting it
  17. Well everything is shut down so I got a chance to put that switch in . what I want is neck bucker ,bridge bucker and both together. The other 2 positions weren’t that important so I went 1 bridge bucker 2 bridge single, neck single parallel 3 bridge bucker ,neck bucker 4 bridge single ,neck bucker 5 neck bucker 4 has kind of a Strat middle sound I like If I get bored I can always move a couple more wires
  18. Can’t speak for the Strats but a bullet Tele might be a good platform for mods
  19. I did some mods to a Squire Affinity Tele. It's a good enough guitar except that when you start modding it you discover that nothing fits.
  20. I have a VS15R I use in the basement, it's an OK little amp . It has the Black and Gold speaker and a tiny spring reverb . I actually used it in church for a while before I went to acoustic. Picked it up at a yard sale with a cheap guitar for like $35. Cleaned up the guitar added a new set of strings and made a couple bucks,so the amp is basically a freeby.
  21. I’ve been relying on college radio stations to find something new. They have a very eclectic mix that I listen to while driving. Drawback is that when I hear something I like I need to remember the time and track it down on their playlist
  22. Nice, glad you found what you wanted. You mentioned the strings are not right over some of the poles. It’s hard to see on the pic but is the string spacing on the neck even? Looks like it could be a little closer on the low E side but could just be camera angle. You may be able to shift the neck a little if it’s not even and that might help out a little bit with pickup spacing. Overall though if it sounds good just play it. HNGD
