  1. A good test would be to run a thick gauge extension cord to that outlet 20 feet away. I have been in clubs where it seemed like somebody's unqualified brother in law did the electrical wiring for the owner. One thing to beware of is ground loop hum from having gear plugged into different outlets on different circuits. And the dreaded RFI interference hum from fluorescent lights as well. Lastly, a power conditioner is cheaper than repair work.
  2. I don't have any guitars with Maple necks. Don't they typically seal them at the factory with lacquer or something?
  3. When I change strings and clean the fretboard I finish with lemon oil.
  4. My stepdad played trumpet in college in various jazz bands for extra cash up in Eerie PA. He gave me his King Professional trumpet from the 50s. After some years I had my horn repairman friend Miles Faherty replate it and presented it back to him. When my little brother's oldest son started playing in school bands, he got it.
  5. I have a Yamaha G60A which I use Savarez strings on (silver wrapped bass strings with a wound G). I played cornet in the Jr High school band (there was no guitar, so I had to pick another instrument). I traded it back a couple years later in high school to Weiss Music for the Yamaha. Same woods as your guitar.
  6. For rock I like the Rodger Nichols work with Steely Dan. For classical music probably the RCA living stereo series.
  7. I watched last night. Was glad to see a mention of Lefty Frizzell. My guitar playing dad and Lefty were boyhood chums in East Texas.
