    My daily driver is a 2010 Subaru Outback (white, like the one that is off to the side in the OP's picture...) It's fairly loaded as far as Subaru's go (a 3.6R Limited), but still a very utilitarian...

    Stuff happens.... That said, whenever I'm playing I either untuck my shirt, or else move my belt buckle over to the side... I don't bother with my old (1965) Harmony/Silvertone, that has been...

    Another product that may be of interest is the Mag-Lok from Super-Vee tremelos. It's not really a trem lock like the Tremol-No, but more of a "trem resistance" device.

    Basically it has a small,...

    I'd like to think that this is how Nigel Tufnel would explain the advantages of a CU24:

    I'm a big bird fan, and a non-serious, amateur bird-watcher. My favorites are the bird of prey. But at the other end of the size spectrum, hummingbirds are awesome as well. We have a couple of...

    hanks for posting the pictures from the "MIM". My wife and I went there this past September, and it is an awesome museum. Although I enjoyed the "Artists Gallery", the Guitar Gallery, and the North...

    It really seems like more of an extended jam, rather than a solo, but the multiple guitars on "Keep On Growing" (from the Layla album) has always been one of my favorites. There's actually three...

    I'm an intermediate-player (maybe at best!), to put things in context.

    A lot of the time, listening to a Carlos Santana interview, you're going, "What did he just say? What did it mean?". But in the end, it all makes sense.

    Being a Bay Area guy, he's a pretty big...

    Of course the biggest practical issue with Gibson headstocks (or at least most of them) is that the combination of fairly large headstock angle (17 degrees, usually, I think), plus neck angle...

    A couple of comments:

    Putting the nut (as a whole) just very slightly closer to the 1st fret than the pure math would indicate, does help with intonation. It's easier to visualize this if you...

    One thing to keep in mind is that different steps of a full set-up can affect the prior steps. So some level of re-iteration is usually needed. Your intonation seems way off on the E (I think you...

    To add a bit to the original question, yes, the only difference between 2012 and 2011 CU24s is that the 2012's have the contoured-bobbin 59/09s (or "squabbins"). There is one other possible...

    I'm OK with a 2/32" string height for the D through high-E strings, but need to be more like 5/64" for the low-E and A. This is with 10-46 strings. I've also thought about using some form of "heavy...

    I liked the Bob Welch-era Fleetwood Mac albums a lot. "Bare Trees" and the Penguin album are both pretty good, and I really liked "Mystery To Me", which I feel is/was very under-rated. Actually, I...

    Compared to a Wide-Fat, the Pattern Regular has a slightly narrower nut, and so it might be more of a job, compared to just carving the thickness down a bit.
