Quoted from zombywoof:

You have that beautiful green-swirl body. That should be the center of attention. That’s why I originally went with the rosewood dot neck and color matched green pickups. You want those elements to disappear. I feel like the other feature options just compete with what should be the primary focus: the color dipped guitar body.

Whatever way you go, I really appreciate your sharing your process here. That was a bold move, to take a guitar that you have owned for so long and risk the plunge. Well done!

Thank you. And thanks to everyone for your advice. I posted this on a couple of my guitar forums too, and the consensus is definitely with the maple fretboard with the pyramid inlays. The disagreement is definitely with the pickup color - about half are for green and half for the purple. Some actually suggested doing a different color in both the neck and bridge positions, which I certainly could do. This will be a last second decision, after I reshape and finish the neck. When it's complete and reassembled (in a few weeks) I will post the final result!

I agree completely with this analysis, original upper left!

I like the green pick ups with the colored inlays the best.

Well the best choice did not even make the final four so there is that to argue about....

Since you seem to have quite a variety of necks the ultimate look would be with a dark fretboard with the cool pyramid inlays .( maybe light inlays but I think dark inlays might mesh better with the dark swirls in the body)

Rush, stoner rock, and a little pinball content? Yes, please. Can any eagle eyes name the games?

Hey I just released a new music video today! Maybe some of you might enjoy it. I’m the guitarist.

I pulled the muscle in my left ring finger today, and fear I may be out of commission for a bit. It really sucks, because I just started learning the fiddle intro for Old Crow Medicine Show's Wagon Wheel on mandolin. Mobility isn't too bad, but anything on the first or second string is pretty painful.

On the bass front, I'd been doing a Steve Harris deep dive. I have been working on Innocent Exile, Phantom of the Opera, Wrathchild, and Number of the Beast.

I will take the opportunity to add a couple of pics of the latest acquisition. This one isn't mine (although I do play it when she isn't looking). My wife picked up the ukulele over the summer. She is the daughter of a music teacher, one of her under-graduate degrees is in music, and is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist. Not surprisingly, she outgrew the cheap starter uke that she bought in a hot minute. So, I got her this upgrade:

Fender Fullerton Jazzmaster ukelele. I really like the neck profile. It sounds good acoustically, and has some nice flair with a little chorus on electric.

Anyone in the NY area interested in a Rock n Roll Relics Thunders 2 model with MoJo Tone Classic Pick ups. It has custom case and paperwork. Asking 1,700 , they sell for 2,800. Thanks

Always like a silverburst finish

#417 27 days ago

This popped up in my recommendations today. I did like 10 years ago and uploaded 5 years ago. Just having some fun. Not me on the drums made a loop with a drummer and some perc. I'm playing everything else.

Getting settled into the new place. Have a nice Little Rock out zone. The antique mandolin is Nancy’s she had it refurbished.

Got a stud finder and still negotiating these plaster walls. I’ll probably just leave it at the mandolin now, it’s only a couple pounds. Don’t think I have the stones to hang the guitars yet.

The antique mandolin

You gave me grief about “hobbit rock”, but all the while this was under your roof?!? At least my ‘59 has a p-90! But in all seriousness, I’d like to know more about that A-? series Gibson mandolin. Is there a story there?

Also, props for the Alfred E. Neuman, and the BA in English from Clemson (maybe not in that order, but they both encourage critical thinking).

The mandolin belongs to my girlfriend who doesn’t play it. It was passed down from a grandfather I believe. She had it refurbished.

Thought it would look good on the wall and now that I have it tuned it’s fun to dick around with an acoustic instrument!

My critical brain was having serious problems
With the 8 (4?) strings but I’m getting used to it now. And can play smoke on the water.

Dude you know what song to play with the mandolin. There's only one.

I have the curse of the Lefty, but the pleasure of living within driving distance Southpaw guitars!

The Houston Arcade show is coming up in November which includes a mandatory trip to Southpaw.

I’m currently hunting Stratocasters online...

I had all mine on the wall hangers for a while, but no longer after a few untoward accidents. Plus I live in earthquake country anyway. I hate that they take up room on the floor, but that beats the alternative of possible damage from a fall from that height. I am thinking about some possible alternatives, including keeping each one inside a hard case until its time to play.

What kind of damage did your guitars take falling off a wall?

I just can't keep them in their case or I'll never play them, simple as that. Having them out and ready to play makes me play them.

Some scratches, and one took a pretty big hit to the bottom strap post.

I also had an f-up with the Ibanez recently and got a few nicks in some of the frets. I guess it got banged down onto something right on top of the fretboard Taking it to the shop tomorrow.

I totally agree about having them out. But I do find that I tend to favor one to grab and play. So if I have one out ready to go, that should be good. Actually I have the Strat in the hard case right now, it's still like brand new and I don't want to risk damaging it with my carelessness. All the others are older and have their battle scars already, so I don't mind so much. I have hardly played it, I'm not quite sure what to do with it. I bought it on a whim from that sale Vid posted a while back.

My recent favorite go-to has been the Ibanez. I love playing that thing. It's got 9s, super low action, and is tuned down half a step, Hendrix/EVH/Randy Rhoades style.

Sounds like you did pretty well all things considered.

Pretty sure if my two Gibsons fell off the wall I'd have two broken headstocks!

Another friend and pinsider pointed me here! Cool I didn’t know there was a guitar crossover thread.

I recorded this a couple days ago..

Sweet! Very nicely done, I've got about half of it down, but only the easy parts haha. Someday I'll get there. I may consider everything done and throw away all of the guitars if I can execute it perfectly.

The funny part about this song, way back in the day the last part always sounded so damn cool, and seemed like something that was impossible for one person to play on the guitar. We would try to imagine how the heck that even worked and couldn't come up with anything. But in the end, it turns out that's the easiest part of the song, once you get the tapping down and sort out the pattern.

EVH was just a great legend and an inspiration all the way around.

Got this earlier this summer - along with my other half stack that i've had over 30 years, I can now make a FULL one....

Zoomed in on the knobs and couldn’t tell, but I’m just gonna assume they all look like this.
