Guitar stuff

    I was poking around at the Brossard Picks Web site and found the link to this guy:

    I know there are other players around here and plenty of guitar fans, so I thought there might be some interest.

    I have a Japanese 1998 '72 Custom Telecaster, a Kaman Applause from some time in the 1980s (I haven't dated it) and Fender FB-54 banjo.

    Very cool.

    Made me think of Jerry Douglas

    EDIT: OK, now you've got me banging around in youtube. Love this. Last one, promise..

    I have a Kramer Ferrington acoustic-electric which is shaped like a Telecaster.....love it to death. Here's what it sort of looks like, although mine is white and the fretboard looks a bit different.


    I bought my son a sunburst Strat and have my eye on another Strat that's robins-egg blue in colour. Truth be told, though, I'd rather have a Telecaster.

    I just bought new pots for my Tele. My friend and I are changing it around a little this weekend.
    We're taking off the original ash-tray and bridge and replacing it with a new Gotoh one. It has the six bent saddles instead of the three dumbell style.
    We're shielding the inside and replacing the pots. I found a schematic for Keith's '72 Custom from the '81 Still Life tour, so we're trying to redo that.

    I just watched that Kotke video. Pretty sick.
    He looks so young in the video.

    Different and kind of long, but excellent:

    About a month short of 10 years since my first lesson. Now own a Martin D-15 Acoustic/Electric, a dark blue Fender Strat and a black Epiphone Les Paul. Also own a Gibson acoustic which, best I can figure, is from 1937. Used to be my late grandpa's, and when I started playing I claimed it from a closet in my aunt's house where it was just collecting dust.

    I really wish I could do this.

    Is the Gibson an L series archtop?
    My pants just got tight.

    This is not my Tele, but it is an accurate portrayal.

    The markings are too hard to read now, but I found this picture on the internet and it looks exactly like the one I have.
