    Why do I hate strats? And do I need therapy?

    This is odd for me to say here, but, I prefer my Strat to a carved top Les Paul. WAIT! I do prefer slab top Les Paul Jrs, and Specials to a Strat. Just can't bond to a carved top guitar.

    Lifton Case And Cracked Tuner Knob

    I had a whole set that was on a brand new 60's Tribute. Gibson sent me a new set. T super glued them and plished them and put them on another guitar.

    Post your Juniors

    The first two I no longer have. 2011 GC special run with a AT-1 humbucker (no pole piece nickel cover) an Epi 57 Reissue ( forgot the year ) with a GFS Slick 9.6k P90 and a rewire. The last is my PGK 58 replica with a Rio Grande Bluesbar P90 (alnico 2 magnets).

    Birthday gift from google

    Happy Birthday! You have a couple on me, but, I'm close. I'll be 68 in January. We're pushing 70. If I knew I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself (I doubt it).

    Frets won't seat

    Decided to have the refret done. How often am I going to do refret jobs? Anyway, here she is. Done for now. Plays and sounds great, after an alnico3 magnet swap. That's a Les Paul case. These aren't supposed to fit a Les Paul case. Fits perfectly. Even sits correctly in the neck supports. Home...
