luck or what?

June 4th, 2008

It’s been like 3 days short of a month since my computer crashed. Guess what? Geek Squad is sending it back—again—to their service center because it still doesn’t work.

And there are some kids in my neighborhood smashing car windows on my block, just for fun. They hit five cars, including mine, in the past week. I need more stuff in my apartment to sacrifice to my violent urges, a fate my office chair suffered this morning.


It’s On…

June 1st, 2008

Since Friday I took care of some crucial errands and tasks to progress my extra-musical activities. First I got a package of shims and stuffed them into the rear cavity of my Washburn electric (the solid body I use most often–a really nice guitar that I vow never to drill a hole in.) Doing this helps transfer vibrations to the body and allows for better sound and sustain. I also took it in to Twin Town for a setup–its first professional
setup since 2000 when I bought it.

While the guitar was away, I made a decision: I’m going to completely refinish the Jackson. I bought three grades of sandpaper and stripped all the paint off the body this weekend, down to the bare wood. Tomorrow I’m going to a wood shop to do the routing. I bought a piece of alder to glue in, then I’m going to route the new single coil cavity. The whole thing will get a shiny new paint job in the end. So, no Telecaster hardware. It’s getting a Strat hardtail bridge.

The guy at the Youngblood Lumber informed me of a place down on Central (which I can’t remember the name of) that will plane wood for $30. So I got the big piece of Mahogany planed down and it’s ready to get cut as soon as I make a template.
