  1. I got more fret wear on my old guitar than freboard wear. It was an LTD faux-les-paul. My Parker came with hardened stainless steel frets, and I've been gigging that guitar for a few years and it still shows no fret wear. Guitar is my 7th instrument, so I'm sure I'm doing a lot of things wrong. I play it on about 1/3 of the songs we do, depending on the gig it could be more or less. I played bass for a few years, so the freboard wasn't exactly a stranger. Sax/wind synthesizer gets the bulk of the rest of the songs, a couple on the flute and vocals on about half our songs. Of course that has nothing to d with ebony fretboards For the experts in guitar maintenance: How often should I oil the fretboard? There- back on topic. Insights and incites by Notes
  2. My custom shop Parker DF522NN has an ebony fretboard. There is a little streaking in it. I think it gives it more character, and it's as smooth as slik.

  5. They used to say "Don't let the rocking chair get you" Modern equivalent: "Don't let the TV get you." In Japan the people who live the longest have what they call ikigai - a reason to get out bed in the morning - but more than that, a purpose in life. Whether you retire or not, don't loose your ikigai. (Welcome back Butch) Insights and incites by Notes
  6. I don't plan on ever retiring as long as I can still play and gig. I've seen to many retire, lose a purpose in life, and die of boredom. Besides, I love playing music, it's the most fun I can have with my clothes on. Why would I want to give that up? I guess I'm lucky in that I earn a living doing what I would do for free. So put me in the ranks of Willie Nelson, Tony Bennett and dozens of others who love it so much they don't want to quit. Insights and incites by Notes
