"Unc,    I like the color scheme. I hope you have a song to go with that so we can hear it. You're right. It's too darn cold to go out to the shed and work.  Stay inside and play guitar."

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 .
