apology

I just wanted to apologize to everyone on this great group. I have not been able to watch everyone's outstanding videos as much as I would like due to shortage of people at my job. In the last 3 weeks I have worked almost 30 hrs of overtime. I have been working a lot of midnight to noon shifts, which take a toll on the body. I have not even had time nor felt like even playing much. I promise I will be back on enjoying the great posts. Thanks to some great friends and musicians on here for…

Callifest 2019

I would like to take this opportunity to express my thank you to Richard Sundberg and all the others responsible for this fun filled journey. I have had a really bad last 2 weeks at work with lots of bad calls from house fires with a person trapped that was taken to burn center to a 5 month old in cardiac arrest. But each day when I got off from work I would read the antics being posted on the different video blogs. Dave Uncle John Vinnie all of us had unusual experiences on the way there. The… Continue

apologies

I want to apologize to all my friends here at the nation. I am really behind watching all the great videos and commenting. My work place blocked you tube and things have been really hectic I was in training all last week for new dispatch software. I promise I am trying to get caught up. I really enjoy all the posts on here

PIEZO PICKUP

I AM GOING TO BUY A 29 MM PIEZO PU FOR MY LICENSE PLATE GUITAR. I AM WONDERING IF I SHOULD MOUNT THE PAD UNDER THE BRIDGE ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE LICENSE PLATE OR IS THERE A BETTER PLACE TO MOUNT IT. I HAVE EASY ACCESS ALL UNDER THE LICENSE PLATE SINCE THE BOX OPENS UP STILL. ALSO THE NECK IS A THROUGH BOX NECK IF THAT MAKES ANY DIFFERENCE. I WAS GOING TO PUT A PRE AMP PU IN BUT THE BOX ISNT WIDE OR DEEP ENOUGH. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED

string tension

I just recently finished a 3 string and it seems like the strings are a little hard to fret. I have it set up on a 25 inch scale, if I move the bridge toward the neck will it make the strings easier to fret without sacrificing tone quality? It plays great with a slide. I am also wondering if I might have the frets set too low. I am using an 8/32 bolt for the bridge and a bit smaller bolt for the nut.
