    My Little Board

    You might want to try one of these powered boards for up to 8 pedals. I snagged em on sale. SKB PS8. $139.99 and comes with Velcro, cords, and an adapter from wall to 9volt battery hook up. I ordered 2. Does what I need it to, and nothing more.

    First time, Long time ... just bought a Squier Strat

    First, take some lighter fluid to that fingerboard, and after it’s clean, oil it. I would go nuts playing some other guy’s gross. I wouldn’t worry about replacing anything that wasn’t broken as it kind of defeats the joys of owning a bargain guitar. HNGD!

    Crack in body, should I care or do anything?

    Definitely have a pro look at it. They will tell you what the options are. And the job may well cost the price of buying clamps for a DIY.

    Trying to straighten neck by adjusting truss rod

    I am in the process of adjusting 2 very sensitive necks. I ran the AC for a few hours today. Total temp drop was 2 degrees. I leave the truss rod covers off on my SG and Ibanez RS550. When they need adjustment, it’s just a slight tweak, but they seem to need it more often than my other...

    Well, I hope you didn’t leave the keys to your house in there. I always worry about them getting the address off the registration, etc, and making a visit to the house. Sorry that happened.

    I have a 79 hardtail and a Vintera 70’s Strat. Both Ash. I have not noticed anything on either of them. But the Vintera is from the last few years. Besides the weight, is there a reason they couldn’t use northern ash?
