    Let's Talk About Straps Baby

    I really had to ream out the thick Walker & Williams leather strap for my Rickenbackers and a Tele - w/ Schallers - but it was worth it, as I love the W&W straps on the guitars. However, the Walker & Williams straps also work well on some of my other guitars, with a rubber washer.

    Do you ever have an issue with bookmatching on LP guitars?

    I'm with you - it does bother me as well. Probably shouldn't, but it does.

    Telecaster: Humbucker in the Neck, Single in the Bridge

    Yeah, that'll happen if you don't match the neck and bridge pickups. My tech put the '59 in the neck of my FSR Tele, and suggested I go with another Duncan Tele bridge pickup - so that the two pups would play well together.. So I ordered a Duncan Five-Two, and he put that pickup in the bridge...

    Let's talk Gibson SG - Which one to buy? Custom shop?

    Love my 2013 Standard. I also had a 2005 Special Faded which I probably shouldn't have let go..

    Have you ever thought about buying a lefty guitar just for something different?

    My tech built a "lefty" righty Tele... It actually plays and sounds pretty nice..

    Relic’d Guitars, How They Age

    I've had my Road Worn 60's Strat for ten years now, and I'm not sure if I can find the new wear from the original factory wear - It all kind of blends in together now...

    What Guitar Polish Are You Using ?

    A friend gave me the ”Fender Custom Shop Deluxe Guitar Care System" pack (polish, cleaner, fretboard cleaner, etc.) for Christmas - I probably never would have bought it for myself - but I've got to say it does a pretty good job.

    Gibson es335 pickups

    My 2017 335 Studio came with a '57 Classic in the neck, and a "Super '57 Classic" in the bridge. The 57 in the neck is your typical '57 Classic tone, and the Super 57 in the bridge is just a tad hotter. I like that Super 57 quite a bit..

    How to make a tele as light as possible

    I edited my post to reflect your concerns. I merely stated that the GFS Tele body I have, and the ones my tech got from them were fine, and he does a lot of Tele-style builds... He told me he has had no problems whatsoever with his GFS Tele bodies. But I'm sure there are bad examples from GFS...

    How to make a tele as light as possible

    My Daphne Blue double bound GFS paulownia body was far from "junky".. Having said that, I do hear they can be hit or miss, but mine was perfect. And my tech ordered four different GFS paulownia Tele bodies for his builds, and every one of them was spot on, according to him.

    Best years for American Standard Stratocaster?

    I have to agree - My 2011 American Standard is pretty awesome. And I love the stock pickups in these - whatever they are! Not sure if these pickups even have a name/model...
