"Wow, good on those pickups.   I look at that head stock more closely and it looks like it should function well.   So good on something different.   We get tired of the same ol crap!"

Thanks very much Uncle John.  I am moving right along in my build.  Thanks so much for the offer.  It is much appreciated. I expanded my box today.  It had rounded ends, which I really like, but it was so shallow, so I added another 3/4" to make it 2 1/4" thick.  That should make for some nice resonance.  It looks pretty good too! :)  Thanks again for your offer.  If I have to scrap mine, I may take you up on your offer. :) So far, so good.

1936 Oklahoma License Plate ~ 1 page fiction (short story)

Oklahoma 1936 License Plate #134-651      By John Bolton

I was made in late 1935 in the Oklahoma State Prison at Mc Alester. I was black with yellow letters. I was issued in Goodland County in 1936 and bolted on the rear of a gray and black 31' Ford coupe with a rumble seat. I couldn't see where we were going, but when the dust wasn't too bad, I could see where we'd been.

The Ford belonged to Gibson. He had a place in…

This Old Guitar  By Uncle John
I put my old Silvertone guitar up for sale and advertised it at a hundred dollars in the local Penny Saver. A young guy called about it then came to the house. He could play some. Not stuff I'd ever heard, but not bad stuff. He asked me, “Is there any wiggle room on the hundred? I'd have to…
