    HELP NEEDED: Hand Rubbed Stains

    I used to fade stain leather with antiquing. A drop or two an a little piece of sponge, wring it out and rub back and forth a buzzilion times, leaving only a trace. Build up slow. Never did wood.

    God damn cancer

    We’re survivors. Sometimes we were caretakers on a interminable marathon. Then one day it ended. We echo now, the lives of our loved ones. It’s good there’s guitars, or I would have exploded. And that makes a mess. Ick

    God damn cancer

    Sorry for your loss. Everyone. Took our middle son, and my wife, in about 4 year span. April 18 2008 & Jan 28 2012. My life ended too. Cancer don’t play fair.

    Whats the deal with PRS guitars?

    The only guitar I ever thought frigid was an ES-347 I had. I’m a Tele guy. I like ‘em crude and trashy (like me). Went through a PRS phase a few years ago and felt like they were neither fish nor foul. They try to be a do-it-all guitar: Fendery and Gibson sounding at the same time, which left...
