Took some time and rebuilt one of the hardest things to throw out after we flooded out: My sticker case! Actually managed to peel some of the old ones off of the flooded case before the mold set in and reglued them, the others I replaced, and some are new!
There is very little more Canadian than standing in ankle deep water at midnight clearing storm drains with a neighbour talking hockey and gold medals
So my bedroom just got a lot cooler!
Best part: my brother asked the collector when he saw it in the garbage! Didn’t even have to steal :P
Twas a lonely, grey Sunday at Kerr Hall last week.
MmmMMmmph Mph Mmm Mph
Man, for not being that poseable these figures photograph well!
YOU ARE ALL WEAK! YOU ARE ALL BLEEDERS!
Managed to get my hands on a second Team Fortress action figure, this time the soldier. MAGGOTS!
Whoever runs the Taco Bell twitter is pretty cool.
If I ever ran a corporate twitter this is what I’d do
So I just found something new to do with my TF2* action figures :D
What goes better with the pyro than fire?
*Team Fortress 2. Twice as addictive as heroin, but not as addictive as coffee
I was almost ready to try a Nashville bridge on my Les Paul, even though like deebeeus I think the ABR-1s look A LOT cooler than the other ones. Until, after a few hours and a few pricked fingers, I managed to bend a g string with two sets of pliers and made a string retainer (The retainer in pic 1 is the old g-string from that guitar!). No more buzz, no more losing saddles!
I noticed that Long and McQuade removed it when I sent it in for the warranty setup a few years ago, but I thought that meant it was just there for while it was on the rack. Then, I noticed that more and more players left it on, so I thought I’d google it. Lo and behold, it was important. It stopped buzz, it stopped the screws from rotating causing intonation issues, and it kept them in place during string changes.
So, kind of outraged now that Long and McQuade removed it, I inquired about how much it’d be to replace it. Long and McQuade charges $2! I really hope this wasn’t a scam to get me to buy one! (Some of the techs there are really, REALLY nice [One has known me since I got my first guitar, and has helped me care for my babies with the most patience I could ask for!]. Others, well, aren’t [One has talked down to me since I bought my first guitar like I don’t know anything, and he even broke one of the bolt-neck screws when he did the setup and I needed to send it in the night of my first gig!].) So, not having $2 on me, I made one. Lots of fun tinkering!
Moral of the story: ABR-1s FOREVER! Well, as long as they’re complete!
Hey, friends! Other Mike wanted to ask if any of our followers had a line on an old Roland Jet Phaser. He’s been wanting one for ages (another “should have never sold it” situation) and I want to get him one!
If you or any of your friends have one for sale, hit us up!
Boosting the signal: These guys not only show off their amazing vintage guitars, but these guys are also probably the reason all my guitars survived the flood last summer. They’re amazing, VERY nice and helpful, and if you have/you know someone that does and they don’t want it, you should give them a ring (and by ring I mean email, darn you modern age).
And if you don’t but you have enough money, buy something!
