@Karl - That is good stuff but I don't get the guitar connection. If you'd like to show your stuff to a wider audience of TA artists, post some examples and a link on this thread.

I moved from Cleveland to Portland, OR recently. (Or, rather, I moved back, since I lived in Portland for 35 years.) You always break or lose things when you do a move, especially a long move. In my case, my beloved Squier Surf Green Surfcaster is gone. Either stolen by one of the Craigslist movers who helped me or it might have fallen off the back of the truck that day I took off without remembering to latch the sliding door on the back of the truck. But I doubt that it fell off the truck because I don't remember it being anywhere near the door. I'm buying a new one. Grrrr.

Pardon me. Ravi's other daughter is Norah (not Nora) Jones.

Not exactly guitar music, but related. Ever heard of Anoushka Shankar? She's Ravi Shankar's daughter. His other daughter is Nora Jones. Both are beautiful women and extremely talented musicians. I'm currently watching this Anoushka Shankar concert. Grooving both on the wonderful music and the thought of how much I'd love to take a shower with Anoushka.

You know that ad "I don't always drink beer, but when I do...it's Dos Equis"? Well, I don't listen to much heavy metal, but when I do, it's Dimmu Borgir because they blow just about everyone else out of the water:

Almost forgot; check out this guitar. My wife won it at the High School Music Boosters raffle a few years back. It's a ESP Sambora, limited edition, and it's signed by the entire Bon Jovi Band. I played it once. The rest of it's existence has been in that coffin:

Dual Humbuckers and Floyd Rose Trem. Love the Floyd Rose.

unseen: Learning chord progressions; I-VI-IV-V, I-IV-V, etc., figured out intervals, scales, hammer on and pull off's, and Travis picking. I think I'm getting more of a kick learning theory then actually strumming.

My daughters Strat is a 2005, USA made American Standard. It came with single coil passive pickups but I found them noisy and annoying and switched out the entire pick guard with EMG SA David Gilmore active pickups. What a difference!

Fender makes the U.S. made American Standard Stratocaster and a Mexican made Standard Stratocaster. Differences are in the wood used for the body of the guitar. The U.S. made guitar uses one solid piece of wood and the Mexican uses wood that has been glued together to makeup the body of the guitar. There are also differences in the frets and tuning gears and the bridge. Playing the two guitars side by side the feel of the American Standard is much nicer. The neck is smoother and the guitar stays in tune. Better tuning gears.

Thing is a boutique amp will cost you big $$$'s but you can build something pretty close for much cheaper, esp older stuff where you're paying alot for the fact its full of 50 year old components.

Well I started about five years ago with the stuff at ax84.com so Ive built all kinds of stuff over the years, a 180 watt hypermarshall, Fender input sections into vox output sections. Lately Ive been working on small class A amps around twenty watts. Just finished an amped up 1952 Princeton input section into this output section.
Recently decided to stop doing repair because even though I got to see some pretty exotic stuff, id rather be working on my own stuff.
