"I've found that while my abilities are mediocre at best, what I like is hearing my gits played by someone who knows how to play. Its amazing the sound that comes from them."

Blues Frog replied to bigmcgiv's discussion stomp boxes

Hi, haven't been to my page in a long time, just saw your post. I don't have a real shop, just my workbench in the basement and power tools in garage. I'm just outside the village, where are you at?

Hi Blues Frog , just enjoyed watching your videos. You don't see many people using full size humbuckers. I have a pair of 'em from a Satellite Les Paul I broke in 1986 ! Is there a reason they're not used much? Sure sounds good on your CBG .

What do you think?…
