  1. @rugby1970 they're really nice. I do tend to lean towards the Strat hoarder personality profile, but, these just feel amazing. I think it's the 14" radius on the fretboard. The necks feel wide and flat to me. Goldilocks zone on the thickness. Not too thick, not too thin. The only thing I don't care for are the stock pickups. They're OK. Just OK. I swapped mine for a Lollar dirty blonde set and have not considered changing them since. My green '94 has been my #1 for going on 5 years now.
  2. A 5E3 Tweed Deluxe clone I built. I run a little battery powered pedal board with a tuner, OD, and a reverb pedal in front of it. Great little setup.
  3. Mr. Baker has left the building. https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/ginger-baker-dead-cream-drummer-cause-a9144786.html
  4. I've had one for a while. If you use a 2.4Ghz wireless router in your home you may experience some drops in the wireless connection. They're not, imho, built well but the do funtion as advertised. The AKG WMS works better. Pair that with some rechargable batteries and you've got a nice little rig.
  5. We use something similar to the Bose but considerably less expensive. Turbosound IP 1000s. They're a similar layout. 1000 watts. 2 mic inputs or you can use a mixer. I've used them for the past two years with good results. Acoustic duo, three piece electric rock and a 7 piece blues band. Indoors, outdoors, very happy with them.
  6. I did pick up a couple new licks too. I've been working on adding hammer on double stops into my rhythm playing to add some color and interest. It's going really well. So you did have an impact.
  7. I did the Callaham block and the shorty (Gilmourish) arm. Totally it’s different. Not hugely so but the arm makes me happy Si it’s a win.
  8. Just got a Box of Awesome. Its an OD11 and a Kalamazoo in one enclosure. It is the pedal that finally got me to pull the Saucy Box off my board. I'm having a ball with it.
  9. I'm going to miss his clever takes on events of the day. He made me laugh often.
  10. As usual HHB cuts through the mix and lays down a thick dose of truth. Much appreciated compadre....
  11. I stand corrected. Granite would likely be a step down. Granite, is a composite igneous rock comprised mainly of basalt, feldspar and quartz if I recall my high school geology class correctly. I would not expect it to resonate very well as the wave would be passing through random dissimilar materials. Also, it isn’t particularly dense or particularly hard. Two qualities that I think would aid in resonance and would have to both be present in a good block. Lead is dense but soft. Aluminum hard but not dense. I don’t think either would work well in this application. So, I think it comes down to brass or steel being the most common effective choices. Tungsten would be cool to try.
