    I Got Your Back

    This is one of my many original songs, except I took the country path and wrote a song with the same 4 chords :). It was recorded in Nashville at Beaird Studios. Instead of ruining it with my Australian accent, I got 2 session singers and they were great. The session musicians in Nashville are...

    NGD: Aria Pro II Nashville

    I never gelled with tele's, but know they sound great. I'm just not a fan of the square body, three piece saddle and maple fingerboard. So I went looking for something with a more comfortable body and preferably a rosewood fingerboard. After some research, I narrowed it down to the Schecter PT...

    Saddle Adjustment On TonePros Bridge

    I installed a TonePros Nashville replacement bridge on my Gibson Les Paul Studio. When I started to adjust the saddles for intonation 3 of the saddles didn’t have enough room to intonate.

    Talk me out of a Deluxe Nashville Tele

    So I am a LP guy but I need a better twangier single coil option for bluegrass, country-ish, Stones style rock. I like the way Teles feel and sound much more than a strat, but not always. I would never buy a strat, I have a Washburn MG520 that is HH with a coil tap which is close enough for...

    ABR or Nashville? What bridge is on my 2001 Les Paul Standard Plus

    Can anyone help me ID what bridge I have? Is it an ABR bridge? If I want to switch to ABR, is there an easy way to do it or does it require some surgery?
