    Anyone Use The Fender Mod Shop To Build A Strat?

    That was the only issue. But what a killer looking Strat it could have been. And I was not the only one from that time that had a bad neck pickup. Fender must have had a bad batch and should have take steps to take care of the issue. NC

    Anyone Use The Fender Mod Shop To Build A Strat?

    Mine was a total disaster. I ordered my new dream guitar in November of 2019 as a 50th birthday present for myself. The guitar showed up in about 30 days and looks . . . awesome. As seen in the image below. But the neck pickup (N4G) would cut out intermittently and I went back and forth...

    The negative post: What are you just not good at???

    Yes but the quote I referenced specifically stated, "Here is a negative post." Not, "Here is a positive post with a bunch of negative replies." And since it was the first time I read it I am well within my right to join the ranks of those ad nauseam others and post my thoughts as well. NC

    The negative post: What are you just not good at???

    I think the original post had a lot of good advice. Not sure if that guy really left or not but much of what he said made sense. There were a lot of negative replies however. NC

    The negative post: What are you just not good at???

    Good for you. Not being able to play the harmonica is like not being able to play the bagpipes. It is also like not being good at hitting yourself in the head with a hammer. NC

    The negative post: What are you just not good at???

    I suck at saying no to people. I have struggled with that my whole life and need to have my guard up so people don't try to take advantage of me. NC

    I just don’t understand….

    Mighty Wings from the Top Gun soundtrack is a great rock and roll song from that era. Granted I like fighter jets and thing the sound of an F-18 with both afterburners lit up sounds as cool as anything else on the planet. And yes I will see Top Gun: Maverick in the theaters in May. NC

    wow...Glen Campbell was great....

    In an old movie starring Steve McQueen, Glen can be seen as the guitar player in his band. The movie was called Baby The Rain Must Fall but I could not find a clip where you could see Glen with the band and don't want to link to the entire movie. Glen seems to pop up in a lot of unique places. NC

    wow...Glen Campbell was great....

    Cleary a master of the instrument. To my knowledge he had a reputation as a pretty good person as well. NC

    Why does one need more than one guitar?

    The problem is that you are using the word "need." We don't need any guitars. We want them. Big difference. Period. We need air to breathe, water to drink, food to eat and protection from the elements. Everything else in life is a want, not a need. If you were to ask the question, how...

    Everything I'm going through, and now Fire #2

    Having grown up with an alcoholic father who had two brothers who also drank too much (didn't know them well enough to label them as alcoholics) and both of them tried to burn their mother's mobile home to the ground, I have zero tolerance for alcohol fueled behavior. One of the dead beats fell...

    Dolly withdraws R&R HoF nomination

    It is fantastic that people recognize her songwriting ability which is different from the genre she immerses herself in. Many good things said about her even though they may not like her particular style of music. NC

    Am I the only one who has never had a hum problem with single coils?

    Initially I read your post title wrong. I interpreted it to mean having had a problem meant never having experienced it. But after reading your post I think you mean has it ever been a real "practical" problem vs. can you get it to occur. I agree in that I can certainly crank up the gain and...
