"My cheap n' easy solution: I stained my neck a charcoal color, and wanted my fret markers to match the mother-of-pearl-look tuning pegs. Went down to a local music store and got some heavier picks that had the same mother-of-pearl-look, used my…"
"Hi, here is a cheap marker solution, but it takes the same effort as installing pearl dots. if not more. But we don't mind it not being too easy...do we?

"Thanks Brian Q, checked out the Facebook version, once is enough. Not much there in the way of conversation or education that I could find. And the the first paragraph or two here's a link back here, "the mother ship". Their words not…"

"Hey Brian Q, I was wondering if this site is trying to do too much with too little tech. I use another Ning guitar forum that runs perfectly. However it has a fraction of the content.
Maybe that's why folks are using the forum part less. How…"
Hi - have you shorted out the second coil? That should fix it if you haven't. Else just try different permutations of the connections before you solder it - should be possible to reduce it quite considerably

Hey Jerryrig, New Market is kinda near Louisville Ky right? I think I want to try to get a cbg gathering worked out for next summer for folks in the tristate area. Would you be onboard? I don't think I want to do a full on fest but maybe just something where all the cbg folks can get together and jam, trade building techniques and stuff like that. What do you think?
hello just stopped by ta let you know the final pics of the red brick guitar are coming up shortly--check them out--the pickup is a tesla transducer built by ted crocker.it sounds good and i,m going to do a video soon also if you would like to hear it. thanks.
Thank you Jerryrig240. The secret really is the Pinnacle movie making software that I received as a gift from John McNair. He really fixed me up. I used to use Windows Movie Maker, but it does not have the same excellent sound quality as Pinnacle. I am only using a little Canon Power Shot SD300 camera with a built in mic to shoot the video. Thank you for your comment. Enjoy.
