    "Green Craig" Partscaster!

    And here she sits as assembled today: Upgraded to Rose pickups (see my forum profile for the exact makeup) and a chromed metal pickguard. The volume pot broke so that got replaced. I may have replaced the tone cap at some point as well, but I don't remember...it's been so long since I took...

    "Green Craig" Partscaster!

    Can't believe it's been 10 years. Attached is the pic as described in the first post...mishmash of Squier take-off pickups, Bournes pots, orangedrop cap, Switchcraft jack, and Oak Grigsby switch, held together with milsurp teflon-coated wire and a Jimmy Vaughn wiring scheme. Mystery neck with...

    Sheet music vs. Tab music

    Every Good Boy Drives Ferrari When I got my first acoustic guitar, my mom took me to the mall to pick up some tab books for music that I'd want to play. I poo-pooed the idea, arrogantly looking at "hippy dippy guitar players" not even being able to read sheet music. Buncha slackers anyhow...

    "Tone is in the hands" part 2

    Aaaaaand we've reached the point in the discussion where we're discussing the discussion itself and not the content of the original thread/post.

    2021 CV 60s trem arm replacement

    I posted this in another thread, but I bought a used (near brand new) Squier Classic Vibe 60s guitar at an antique store. Pictures match ads on Sweetwater, MusiciansFriend, and Guitar Center, and the serial number matches the new CV numbering scheme, so I'm 99% sure it's legit. But, it didn't...

    Rip Kelly

    I was sorry to see that I missed the original thread back in April! Kelly and I played a ton of GTA Online back in the day - he thought it was a hoot that my main character was a woman! He remains the only Strat Talker that I know I've spoken actual words to (I may have interacted with...

    if i was a mod, i'd

    I gotta look this up and put it into action, but I had a hand in designing a Telecaster mod that uses the old-school Broadcaster "Dark" circuitry in positions 2 and 3, but a normal/modern bridge pickup operation in pos 1.

    How many of you click the ads at the bottom?

    I took these screenshots at various points of browsing today. The middle-ish ad on the right side is quite often (but not always) guitar-related. The top banner and the bottom-ish ad on the right are of questionable content...seemingly coming from Google Ad Services (when I right-click and...

    How many of you click the ads at the bottom?

    So what, pray tell, do you all think I'm browsing? I have tabs open for a Discord chatroom, Strat-Talk, a few guitar related sites, Reddit, a bass guitar forum, and 2 golf sites. I, too, see "shocking beach photo" ads in the side columns and on the bottom of Strat Talk. I'm running...

    Vinyl LP Pickguard - What's your experience?

    Oh, hi there. The first ones I made, I traced my outline, heated the vinyl with a heatgun, then cut it a few inches at a time with a razor. Those wobbled and got all weird around the edges and didn't sit nicely. Eventually, they cracked. I did this one on a bandsaw, which came out quite...

    "Tone is in the hands" part 2

    Nothing matters. Tone doesn't exist. Play your guitar and be happy, dammit!
