    Warmoth Lead Time

    I ordered an unfinished custom neck from Warmoth on September 22nd. It was shipped November 4th. That's six weeks + 1 day. It's a little longer than the old 4-5 weeks they used to quote before the pandemic, but only by a week or two. Being unfinished helps a lot of course. From the...

    Musician's Friend Stupid Deal - Zoom H1n Recorder

    I have one and it's a really nice little pocket sized stereo recorder. I've used it mostly to record live music at shows, but it will do overdubs so you can have fun with it at home too. It's on sale for a penny under 80 bucks.

    What Day Is It? Don't Trust GMA to Help!

    I work at home, and all the days of the week are about the same for me, so I often have to think about what day of the week it is. Early this morning I was trying to remember if it's Tuesday or Wednesday. Just then Good Morning America really confused me by putting this on my TV screen. I had...

    It's Been a Long Time since I Had As Much Fun as These Guys Had

    Chris Ingram and Artur Manezes really had fun toward the end, and it reminded me of a few times when I was jamming with a friend and we just got into it. Not on this level of course.

    Innovative Crate Guitar Amp at Guitar Center

    I thought this was pretty clever of Crate. You'd never guess it's actually a 20 watt tube amp.

    Improve by Not Looking?

    After all these years I discovered something that I think helps my playing: Not looking at my fingers. I've been working on a complicated (for me) turnaround for a few weeks and have been slowly getting better at it, but a couple nights ago I tried it without looking. I immediately played...

    Sound Check from Popa Chubby Show Last Saturday

    Here's the sound check from the show at the Blue Note Grill in Durham: Sound Check Note the Gibson Moderne reissue from the '80s at the left. I asked him about it before the show and he played it a little for me. It sounded a lot like an early LP. I was waiting for him to use it in the...

    Anyone Get a Warmoth Custom Body Lately?

    I ordered a custom Warmoth body with clear finish on October 1st. From the information on their site it looked like I could be pretty sure to get it before Christmas, but not by much. I just got an email from them saying it's being shipped. It seems a little scary that it's being shipped so...

    New Neck Completely Changes GAS

    My '76 Strat's frets have worn out, so the neck needs a re-fret. I decided to buy a custom neck for it and try out some interesting things while I'm re-fretting the original. Then when it's done I can put it back on and stick the new neck on another body. I wanted the new one to have a 24.75"...

    I Need to Stop Watching Craigslist

    I recently posted that I need to stop checking CL, and this morning I think I may actually try to quit. A 4x12 Peavey cabinet for $80! I had to tell myself that I don't need a huge, heavy speaker cabinet taking up room, and even so I still feel agitated. Maybe someone else around here can use...

    I May Not Find the Bargains, but My Wife Does

    My wife likes to visit all the consignment shops, thrift shops, yard sales, etc., that she finds. She called from a nearby Ruritan thrift shop to ask if I wanted this thing for $6 that had been sitting in the shop for a long time. I looked it up and said I did. When she brought it home I...

    I bought a set of Guitar Madness ceramic pickups for the Squier Strat I recently put together from parts ($14.55 shipped for the set of three). ( ) I like the pickups a lot, but they have the typical "vintage stagger", causing the G string to be...
