    Has anybody actually played butter?

    Buttah: low action, low tension and flat radius. How about a shout out for LARD. Reduces string noise substantially. Anybody still use Crisco? I will have to admit I have played my fare share of guitars after eating fried chicken or hot wings(butter and hot sauce) and not cleaned my hands...

    Why go to the doctor when I can go here (nutrition advice sought)

    Get a juicer. Organic produce only if juicing since you are concentrating everything. The good and the bad(pesticides/Roundup). My fav is carrot, apple, spinich, parsley and celery. If you are sitting all day you will get fat and/or flaccid. Lean proteins and salads. You need fat for your...

    How many of you have changed the neck on your Favorite Strat (or any guitar)?

    My question is what is the OCD about changing necks? What happened to the adventurous experimental nature of the 70s and 80s? Remember, when we called a Mighty Mite body and neck a "partscaster", not a Strat with all Fender parts from different era's. That was still a legit Strat. We only...

    Give me your three favorite vocal performances!

    Wish this lady would do some rock and roll projects but as far as vocal performances go she is right up there at the top and I'm not much of a Disney fan of late. Whitney, Ann, I'll pass on Adele, Micheal Jackson, Robert Plant, Freddie, Joe Cocker, Paul Rodgers even lame David Coverdale.

    How many of you have changed the neck on your Favorite Strat (or any guitar)?

    It's a tool to convey emotion, that's it. I have zero concern about originality, resale or provenance. So I will change/hack any part on any guitar for whatever reason I choose is best to get the job done. Last guitar I bought a 2010 '59 Todd Krause Masterbuilt was parted and all I have left is...

    Don't Pay For Cool

    Man I wish someone would have told me that a long time ago. Great story and reminds me of most of my friends and what I picture a lot of old ST folks are like. Hoping this quote becomes a common response to some of the recurring gear questions. Cool channel to check out.

    I have a bad case of Nitrose on all my guitars. Hard to get rid of. And yes they all have the stand foam rubber stuck to them.

    Anyone really rely on Rolling Stone Magazine for legitimate news?

    Does this have something to do with NE OK emergency rooms? Funny I live there and immediately knew they were pushing a false narrative after I made a couple of phone calls. A crying shame that some peoples agenda gets the best of them. So I guess RS has shown it's colors.

    Is there anything in music gear that attracts cats?

    Or your shoes.Lol Nothing like that pungent smell of cat urine when you open your case. Those floating cat hairs, cleaning its rear on the kitchen table, the occasional bout with insanity, scratched up everything and ya still love em. Better than stale beer and cig smoke. Yummy. Really has a...

    Turtle Guitar

    I have a huge turtle that hangs around my shop that I will feed now and then. I will ask him what he thinks of this issue. Have to admit I am starting to get some ideas. Turtle tone baby! Turtle soup baby! Maybe I could kill the blind skunk that relies on me for food and shelter and make a...

    Been Very Absent minded as of late...

    As soon as I realize I am not wearing my glasses, usually first thing in the morning, I suddenly go half blind. Go figure. My scatterbrain is from years of abuse in pushing my body to it's extremes for many many years in a row. Work 18 hour days seven days a week for 8 years straight and be on...

    Trolls and Bots

    Will AI know it is AI or will it think that it is an entity just as important or more important than humans? Will AI look at us as just a facilitator like we look at computers now. With the new laser tech image projection coming out it might be hard to distinguish one virtual reality from the...

    Trolls and Bots

    Don't really understand the whole entertainment from trolling but please enlighten me. Seems more like bullying. Everyone knew at least one as a kid but the keyboard brings out a new breed. Please don't call out fellow ST members for trolling because trolling can be subjective. We already know...

    When does a Stratocaster become a Partscaster?

    Strats are only as good as the sum of their parts. Some parts ARE better than others and the only person it should matter to is you. When does a Fender instrument become a Partscaster? As soon as it leaves the factory for me. Just parted a Todd Krause Masterbuilt...

    Old guitar with a bowed neck

    Most of the classical guitars I have played that were decent had high action for a dedicated electric player. The string needs more room to vibrate and when it's hit hard (Flamenco) it really needs that high action. All of the lower priced models have upbow issues. Used to play a Conn(early...
