    RIP Rocco Prestia

    I just heard that Rocco passed on Sept 29th. I learned bass from his records back in the day - I could play everything on the East Bay Grease album. (back in the 70s, not so much now) I got to meet him a few years ago. He was my favorite bass player. RIP

    Grounding on a black bridge and saddles

    I want to put a different bridge on my '92 MIM. I'm curious about grounding. Waiting for a large block, bridge, and saddles that are all black. Will the ground off the trem claw conduct to the strings? Since I don't have it yet I can't use my meter to check it out. Has anyone used one and if...

    Fender Mustang 90 Nut

    My friend has one with a nut that is improperly cut - the b and high e is cut too wide and the strings pop out of the nut easily - he has re cut some of the nut but wants to put a new one on it. He wants to know if the neck slot is flat or rounded (9.5 radius) before he orders a new one...

    New Fake Strat Day

    A couple of days ago someone gave me a strat copy. It had messed wiring and 3 defective pickups (all metered as open). The 2nd tone control was wired as the volume and who knows what for the other two controls. I would have rewired it if the pickups were good. I had an extra MIM pickguard loaded...

    A little advice please.......

    Asking a little advice..... I am just getting started at home recording. I have been using my Roland cube line out to the Mic input on the computer, but it is too clumsy with cables and adapters. I was thinking about using an old BR-8 (old 8 track digital recorder) for guitar/keyboard inputs...

    Got another Squier

    I was in a pawn shop checking out a replacement laptop when this one looked down at me and winked -- nothing special at the time, but when I took her home and set her up lefty and played her she really sang. I did have to file the frets on the edges though very smooth now and playing nice.

    Fixed a pair of Strats

    I got this white MIA in a trade -- I couldn't stand the tort pickguard So I got a parchment replacement for it. Now I like it's look. Somewhat normal now, but I decided to put the tort on a MIM burst and swapped the plastics to black - I think they look pretty good now. Before and after:

    Replace Trem Block on MIM

    I broke a whammy bar in the block of a 92 MIM strat....So I got a trem kit from fender, wide block, bridge, claw, springs etc. I only used the block and saddle plate...being too lazy to adjust the saddles for string height, I measured the positions on the old ones and put them on the new block...

    All I wanted was some strap locks and.....

    All I was going to buy were some strap locks for my Tele and sat down with this. It's an MIM but it plays like a dream, I couldn't walk away without it. It is No. 5 in the family.
