    No offense taken. Having said that I have never done anything dumb while living in Florida... ;)

    Earlier this year I put new pickups in the old girl. They are from a guy in California and are called Rose pickups. I also put an Obsidian Blender in it with a new output jack and shielded the pickup cavities with aluminum tape. Next I want to put some Hipshot locking tuners in it but will have to bore the post holes out. It needs a new nut as well. I have some pics of the work and will post them soon.

    So here are a few pics that I promised of my guitars. I replaced the pickups on the Peavey with Rose Pickups from California. I also installed an Obsidian Blender and new output jack. I also shielded the pickup cavity and pickguard with aluminum tape. I want to replace the tuners with Hipshot locking tuners but I have to bore the post holes out as Peavey's are 8mm. It is a 94 Peavey Predator, a 94 Taylor 512c and a 2020 Fender Player in aged cherry. I am the original owner of all these guitars.

    Well I might have exaggerated my actual abilities a little. I have more knowledge about the guitar then I have actual ability. Nobody is calling me to play in their band except in my head...

    There is even a game folks play. Type your birthdate into Google along with "florida man" and it will retun whatever mischievous hijinks said denizen was engaged in on that day.

    Unless you have a note from your "favorite doctor" then you are good to go...
