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 .
