    Explanation For Finish Peeling on Murphy Lab LPs

    It would be hard to write a worse response if you tried. As I read the article, I thought, oh, he must just be the ES guy and I can see him being overly sensitive to temp swings. Nope, Senior Director of Product Development. He's over all of them. Boggles the mind. These aren't Epiphones being...

    What's with the OTHER LP Forum?

    Anyone that appreciates Les Pauls should. Without the LPF knowledge base that joined here it would still just be poop-throwing pirate talkers.

    Hung By The Neck Until Dead

    Are you actually undercover Dirk Ziff? :) Yes @Brazilnut, that is a few million dollars in guitars, hanging by tuning pegs. It's only a matter of time until frets and inlays start falling out.

    Adam Jones sigs stolen during shipment

    One by one, the gang of thieves was taken out. The police investigated, but there were no arrests. The only clue connecting the murders, a bag of candy stuffed in the mouth of each victim.

    2013 vs 2019 top carve

    The tenon/neck pocket sets the neck angle. You can think of the neck pivoting at the pocket. The plane of the neck determines the bridge's position in space. The bridge height doesn't determine the neck angle. It's a result of, not the driver of. These days I doubt mahogany/maple...

    Anyone here into candle making?

    Container candles are pretty easy to make. You don't list your location, but hopefully there is a candle supply store near enough. They'll be a good source to let you know what basic supplies and ingredients to start off with. There are many different blends of candle wax and more scents...

    Getting Started As A Lutherie Business

    Thank you! I've wondered about this in particular. Also, how do you treat them if you decide to close your business? Are you supposed to sell them to yourself and count that as income for the business?

    Anyone here into R/C Cars?

    I have....wait, I mean my son has....a TLR 22SCT. Looks like this... This model seemed to have one or two weak parts in the front suspension, but after upgrading those the thing has been indestructible. We have a local indoor track that is fun. It's harder than it looks to run consistent...

    My evening with Marty Stuart..

    Never met him, but Marty Stuart just always impressed me as the real deal. Beyond his playing, there's just a solid vibe about him as a person. A sincere thank you for sharing. Sure seems to confirm that he's good people.

    Winners from the Red Bull action photo contest

    The Germany shot is my favorite from a photography aspect. The others were more about catching amazing moments, which is cool, but a different thing.

    Who was your favourite Sesame Street Character...

    Cookie Monster was all about the funny. Grover was funny, but he taught too. The genius of SS is how it connects with kids through the funny, and then teaches. Grover didn't come right out and say do this and don't do that. But he'd do something and then leave you thinking about the...

    Love the greenhouse idea. All you need is a dumbwaiter so you don't have to lug gear up the stairs.

    Hey non-USA residents... do your citizens separate themselves based on "heritage"?

    Heck yea, they take it a lot further than we do. It's the cause for battle in a bunch of countries.
