  1. I swear it's getting to be like NASCAR with these guys. 😐
  2. What do you call a fish with no eye? Fsh. 😬
  3. Aw man. That's terrible. He was such a sport, that guy. And a crazy-good bass player. Never used a pick. Saw him with ZZ Top live in Honolulu in 1997. Such a good show. 😔
  4. Congrats. Great guitar!! The naked pickups look fine to me, but then again, that's just me. I don't care for anything that subtracts from the rock. 😐
  5. Carnauba is the definitely the way to go. I've been using the spray version of it on all my guitars for many years. Cars and motorcycles too, as you can imagine. I admire that you use the paste version of it. My only problem with the paste wax is that it can get crusted up in the crevices and cracks, and then I have to use a soft toothbrush to get it out of there. Plus it takes a lot of work, and I'm getting lazy in my old age. I use terrycloth for buffing down the frets and any slightly corroded or dirty bits (like you tend to find when you visit pawn shops). In general, I
  6. Two of the four of us (in my band) never really locked-down or isolated. The nature of our jobs meant getting up and going to work every single day. I might have stayed home and tele-worked five or six times, ever. The other two tele-worked their jobs from their homes, exclusively. On top of that, the cancerous health issues of periferal family members meant an extra layer of caution when it came to social distancing. Still, we managed to have band practice a few times over the past year and a half, and there have been some sporatic side-projects and two-man performances her
  7. Fine here in northern Alabama. Huge gig lined up in September, and the band is falling apart. Aside from that, all is hunky dory. 😗
  8. Yes. https://www.allparts.com/collections/screws/products/gs-0039-tremolo-claw-screws Precisely what I would order, if I were in your shoes. 🤔
  9. That Inverness Green is a sharp finish. 🙂
  10. My dog cleared out my cache of cookies. 😬
  11. Alex is always such a great interview. Just a genuine, humble guy. His best buddy Geddy as well. I really liked this. Thanks for posting it, Rabs. 🙂
  12. She waxed up really nice, and the plastic stuff came off the pickguard really well. Plugged her into my Crate V18, clean and dirty, and I must say, she's a little more versatile than I had anticipated. Warmer than expected. Dirty, I played thru some AC/DC (Shook Me All Night Long), and that was entirely great. Appropriate, in any case. Crunchy, crisp, soaring harmonics. Gibson. Played some original jazzy stuff clean, and I was pretty happy. Had to strum and pluck up the neck a bit to take the bite off of things, but all in all, a great sounding guitar. I'm one ha
