  1. Funny story on how we got the shape (obviously no original to measure/trace). This is for the original run for Bill K. At my suggestion we took the original patent drawing, borrowed an old style overhead projector a fellow employee rescued from a school trash bin, and projected the image onto a piece of paper taped to the wall. once the image was adjusted so the humbucker ring in our hand matched the size of the ring on the image on the paper, the body was at the proper scale and we simply traced it.
  2. We used a citrus based stripper. I think it was called QRB
  3. I caught the Jordan plays Jimi show at Infinity Hall tonight. Stanley Jordan has never really been on my radar. I was anticipating a jazz fusion take on Jimi. I was dead wrong. He came out in full costume and played the part. He played behind his head, with his teeth, had a lot of Jimi’s moves down. I was shocked and pleased. It was a not a note for note tribute but I can’t think of a reason a Hendrix fan would be disappointed. Check it out if it comes near you.
  4. Yes. American Original 60s Telecaster. I was worried the slighter flatter neck would feel “un-Fendery” but it feels like an old friend. The finish is pretty fragile. It sounds like it is supposed to.
  5. Bought a USA Centaura all original with original case for $230. Probably around 2001 or so. Axe in Hand had Standard 0050 (with Bartolini pickups) for $1200 around 1992. I was too broke to swing it so I bought the $500 dot neck Sunburst hanging next to it.
  6. We made one. Still had the Hamer headstock and stressed neck. Frank Rindone was the last owner from what I know. It didn’t sound like a Les Paul. I blamed the neck.
  7. All mahogany Archtop GT p90 Goldtop. Jol himself had an all mahogany 50s Les Paul that he claims was a monster. They wouldn’t do it without the hard rock maple top because the paint would sink.
  8. It finally arrived yesterday. Everytime I try to post a picture I get an error. Will try again tonight. I’ve looked at a lot of wood over the years and it looks like a one piece body.
  9. Ended up making a reasonable offer on an Alesis 88 key controller that does the trick nicely. Alesis -midi out toYamaha Reface midi in, a cable from mono out on Reface to Roland Drum amp. Play full size keys, adjust Hammond sliders from Reface sitting next to keyboard and that amp sounds pretty good with just about anything.
