  1. open it up and inspect. more than likely the mono jack has been disconnected or perhaps is making contact with the shield. ask youself: what changed? new cable?
  2. well the good thing is.. at least in my experience... it's a very forgiving finish afa if you get a divot/blemish because new coats actually melt into old coats. stuff smells something aweful tho.
  3. tar-swallow... that sounds like trail jibberish (hehe). eh, super jumbo, advanced jumbo, round shoulder dreadnought... who can keep any of it straight.
  4. right on... someday there is a jumbo in my future or even it's predecessor (I forget - what's the one that's bigger than a jumbo?). hard to get a sense of perspective thru a pic. bet it will sound big!
  5. is it me... or is that bigger than a jumbo/dreadnought? love the simple beauty of it. normally I like things gawdy like... add some diamonds on the edge, 52 inlays, etc... but this makes a good case for sometimes simple is more refined. nice work.
  6. as you know no expert here but having done it with the watco nitro in a very dry climate all sounds good except you may need more than 10 coats (very thin for me). I would plan to spray it up and do a wetsand right away to see if you can get to a very smooth surface before you start the 'waiting weeks' because you'd hate to wait and find out you need more clear. also... given your wet climate you may want to wait a little longer between coats. just some newbie thoughts.
  7. hehe "what do I win?" -a fir lined bathtub? looking at it... looks like the spring might be sitting up on the edge... perhaps not seated. hope it's that simple.
  8. looks like a million bux. nice work. I support the choice to keep it tele/singlecut! bravo.
  9. roger that. For the record I never questioned why the top was so thick... just the back. Could be pretty cool tho. Something about a thick guitar that is comfy... but not too thick (ie 295 thick!). rock on.
  10. carve is fascinating... will be lurching on this one for sure. I can't help but think that guitar looks really thick but that may just be the 'uncarved' nature of it. Have you weighed it? Is it heavy? Anywho... I LOVE where this is going.
  11. that is totally inappropriate....................................................................................................................................thank you for that!
