    Safety in unpacking a new nitro guitar…?

    I agree, just open it once the box is room temperature.

    The fanciest guitar I ever built is for sale on Reverb.

    In the late 70’s while working at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville I made a discovery about the mid 30’s Martin bracing design that I have adapted into my own proprietary bracing design. I came up with a formula that works on any body shape or body size with equal results. The body style of the Warner...

    What Blues Needs…

    I used heavy strings after playing it. I bend acoustic mediums all the time so I never had issues bending. For three years I fronted a blues rock trio and we tuned to Eb. I used .013, .016, .017,.034, 044, 054, set. The G was lighter because if I used a heavy G I would break it on the first song...

    Graphtech Saddle Install

    Fender has two different lengths for the saddle depending on which bridge you are using. These look like the long american standard style saddles and I think you need the shorter vintage style.

    Graphtech Saddle Install

    You have the wrong saddles for that bridge. You need the shorter version.

    Preferred Tuning?

    I played in Eb for several years, but these days I prefer D standard with the occasional dropped C.

    The fanciest guitar I ever built is for sale on Reverb.

    I string it up when the guitar is finished and ready to be set up. There are no points along the process where I jump ahead to string it up in the raw, so to speak. I voice my tops by tapping during the building process and all I ever hear are the taps until the guitar is ready to be set up...

    I miss the days when the album was everything.

    What Blues Needs…

    I don’t disagree, but I still stand by my point. He’s great, but he Is also a product of the modern music age where everything is either a throwback or really derivative and no one stays true to their roots, like Dylan or Chuck Berry, or Merl Haggard.

    Push Pull Pots or Switches on your Stratocaster? What is your preference?

    Push pull on the tone pot. Mini toggle switches are a failure waiting to happen IMO, from experience.

    Nut Repair

    Sometimes it’s better to shim the underside of the nut, and raise the whole nut a bit then recut the slots, rather than fill the slots with baking soda. If all the slots are low I will do this but if it’s only one string I’ll use the baking soda.

    Nut Repair

    The thin Hot stuff from Allparts is best. Fill the slots with baking soda, lay your finger over the nut slots and blow off the excess baking soda then put a drop in each nut slot, then recut the slots with nut slotting files.

    What Blues Needs…

    i think the only way for a real blues revival to occur is for a great songwriter/singer to come long to write some new great blues tunes and for that writer to not be a fair weather artist to the genre and have some staying power, unlike Sturgil Simpson who was supposed to be the second coming...

    I’ve done kind of the same thing.

    What Blues Needs…

    I lived in Texas during the 80’s and early 90’s. I knew Clifford Antone, Stevie and Jimmy Vaughn as well as Charlie and Will Sexton. All during that time I was kind of a white boy blues slinger in my own band. I don’t disagree with anything you are saying in this post. My point was that these...

    Any love for BLUE guitars?

    Blue is my least favorite color for a guitar. Turquoise is good though.

    Guitarist Richard Benson died

    Stevie T is a choad who makes a small fortune on YouTube by making fun of other guys who are onstage yet he has such stage fright himself he can only play in front of his green screen. He’s an idiot who should be banned from YouTube for being a POS dildo.

    What Blues Needs…

    I just realized that with the tags the OP added to this header, this thread should be about White Boy Blues. All the tags were for white blues players post 1980. In the 80’s Blues was only a revival then and included a lot more than the Texas white guys. The 80’s blues revival was not just about...
