Hi folks

Recommended Posts

It's been awhile for sure.

 

Work has been unbelievably busy the last 4 years and I certainly miss all the craziness around here.... but glad to see some of the familiar posters about.

Hi Duane

 

How are your nice guitars then? Bought/sold any?

What happened with the female singer you were working with?

 

Best wishes.

I've been more buying lately... Recently a 1986 cherry les paul junior, 1990 J-160E and a 2000 Gibson 335..

As for the singer, I produced her demo, she paid me for all the masters and I moved on to other projects. Right now my new man-cave has been the current project I'm working on.

Hey, Duane!

Nice too see you here! It would be nice to see some recent snaps of the herd - both the new arrivals and the old favourites!

Hi Duane! Long time no hear from.

I was wondering what happened to you.

Good to see you around. 😀

Does anyone know what happened to Milod?

 

 

Firstly it’s good to see you Duane.

 

Sadly Milo passed away some time ago, cancer. There’s a thread here if you care to find it.

I've tried calling him but his cell was disconnected.... RIP Milod

I’d become good friends with Milo Duane, and it was a kick in the bum to hear he’d gone. I did suspected something was wrong as he went quiet for a few months. Carla told me she was closing down his phone and internet shortly after he died.

 

He was an extremely interesting person and had many friends here.

 

It’s always sad to lose a good one and I often wonder what has been happening to people that just drift away from these places. So many good ones over the years.

 

We’re going well thank you and hope the same is true for you.

You bought a whole slew of guitars and then vanished.

Same thing happened to Henry J but you probably heard about that.

I’m starting version 2 of the John Lennon build with an 86 LPJ as the neck pocket is closer to a 57, and I don’t have to deal with plugging holes and dealing with a bridge modification .... I did this before with a 2013 LPJ satin finish, but it didn’t have the vibe I was looking for and the Charlie Christian pup I used in version 1 was smaller than the actual 1936 CC pup dimensions

 

Version 2 I had a custom CC made to vintage dimensions. Note the parts are just placed in position. I’m still waiting for the 2 custom made Forstner bits from Savantguitars for the pickup selection switch cavity.

 

One thing I did notice is the ABR bridge in the mid 80’s seems to be wider

Good to see you back Duane.

 

Just curious. As a Mod, how does it work when you decide to step away for awhile? Do you put in for a Leave Of Absence? smile.gif

That's funny!!

 

Occasionally I would pop in when a reported post would hit my email.... I would just check if you guys / gals weren't tearing each others guts out. [biggrin]

Always liked your Lennon Jr so I’m excited to see version 2!

 

Nice to see you Duane. I’m still grateful for your generosity sending me that pickup a few years back [thumbup]
