    Damn! Ya had to remind me I still need a Dunlop MC404 CAE!?!

    Well..I'm almost in that place....

    Snag a Baja if you can find one....best all around Tele IMO. It ain't MIA but I'd put it up against any MIA.

    You can always find something to upgrade.

    Just last night I spent the better part of 2 hours with a Dremel Tool trimming 2mm off of all the bridge saddle hight adjustment screws on my Strat, so they will not stick up and poke me in the hand while playing.

    Worked like a charm BTW.

    You can also have lots of fun swapping out pots and caps just for something to do. Or carve new bone nuts for all of your guitars. Or install locking tuners on everything. Or swap out pickups. Or change all of your strap buttons. Or shield all of the control cavities on all of your guitars.

    The possibilities are endless. :D

    What is this word complete? I don't think I've ever heard this word before? Is it from a foreign language? What does it mean? :confused:

    Looks good, but I think you need an SG with P90's to make it complete.

    And what is this practice you speak of?

    Is there a practice knob I should be tweaking?

    That's just going to leave open the chance for all of us to say (in unison?), "Time to come out of the closet, Phil".
