  1. Everything is in excellent condition.
  2. Wow, five pages of replies and note one person mentions Steve Vai?! I'm not his biggest fan, but that guy has pretty much mastered the electric guitar and has technique for days compared to most of his peers. And for sheer ability, I'd say Guthrie Govan. He can sound like any famous guitarist to ever walk the earth, and do it well, as well as having his own unique compositions and style.

  4. Yeah! Something about it just makes me happy.
  5. Awesome! I thought the name Jaden sounded familiar, and I immediately recognized you from the Chappers video! Man, I should visit more often. I love the look of your builds and I appreciate the videos.
  6. So where in the hell have you been? I assume all is well with you and family? YOU need to stop in for a beer. Mike P.S. Your PM box is frigging Full. I'll get that fixed ASAP. 2010 tried to kill me, but I'm still here. I'll give you a call and fill you in on the details. GBT
  7. Looking dang good Mike! I see your workshop is moving up in the world.
  8. Sorry to hear about your back Doug. Good luck and hope you feel better soon. I can't wait to see the finished product.
  9. A fellow Stryper fan here. Man, I love what you've down with the body design, carve, and especially the distressed/glow-in-the-dark neck. Brilliant work.
  10. Mike is an amazingly awesome, five star guy!

  11. Erik's is beautiful in appearance and obviously well made, but I voted for Daniels acoustic. It just does something for me that I can't put into words, and I've never voted for an acoustic for GOTM before.
  12. +1 on both the Dimebucker and the Invader. Remember kids, you have to take your amp into account when deciding on pickup choices. Hot pickups into a high gain amp is usually a first class ticket to Bad Tone Land with a possible layover in Mudville.
  13. OK, The Taunton/Fine Woodworking tool guide reviewed several regular and low angle Spokeshaves. Kunz rated the best value @ $20 ($19.99 at Woodcraft) with a minor tuneup.
  14. i read in Workbench magazine last spring about staining the end-grain on oak trim. they said that if you sand the end-grain a full grit higher/finer than you sand the other faces, it will end up as smooth as the other faces and will take the stain more evenly. of course, on a guitar the edges aren't discrete faces but rather a curve. you might give it a shot anyway. You can also try smoothing out the end grain with a compass plane if you have one, or a cabinet scraper.
  15. Perry, since you're in Australia, I can assume that you've never seen how the US civil court system works. Here's how it works: I would like to illustrate my point with a story. Let's say Mike gets in a 1964 Gibson SG with a book value of $9500 USD that needs a setup or minor repair. In the process of doing the work, something bad and unforeseen happens: the guitar comes loose from the jig or vice, and falls on the headstock, snapping it off. While I'm sure Mike could repair the headstock, the value of the instrument has been tremendously diminished by the headstock repair, even if the functionality is returned to normal. As such, even if he repairs it, he's going to be liable to the owner for any of the diminished value, plus legal fess if he's sued, plus court costs, plus possible damages if they can prove that it was done negligently. With business insurance, his policy provider sends a lawyer and they handle either settling the case (and having a judgement against you or your business is not good for future loans and most jobs) or defending you in court. If he loses, they pay the judgement up to coverage limit of your policy, which hopefully can cover it.
  16. Cool. If you've got it in writing, then awesome. I've known people who learned the hard way about business insurance coverage, and it was not pleasant. I'll venture that's GBT's nice way of saying a hard truth....MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IT IN WRITING. You won't hurt any feelings by asking for a copy of the policy. A heck of a lot of "assurances" are made every day that (intentional or not) don't correspond to the actual written policy, and only the written one will hold up in court. Bingo! It used to be you could conduct business with a handshake and your word, but in the US today, I take all assurances in writing or I don't take them at all. Furthermore, with insurance, all their insurance company has to do is say "You're not covered by their policy," and you're hosed. And don't think that hasn't happened. There is a reason why you are being hired as an independent contractor: it severely limits the legal liability of the company that hired you and hires you out to others if something bad should happen by you or on your watch. I'm not saying these things to be a pain in the butt or rain on anyones parade, I just don't want you to end up in a situation where you could have easily and cheaply stayed out of it with a little prevention. On that note, I've said my peace.
  17. There's a book devoted to this called "The E-Myth," which explains why most small businesses fail in their first years. It boils down to essentially what you've just said. Being good at what you do is only a small part of running a business.
  18. Cool. If you've got it in writing, then awesome. I've known people who learned the hard way about business insurance coverage, and it was not pleasant.
  19. One of the woodwoorking mags did a spokeshave shootout earlier this year. I'll dig up the issue when I get home and post what they said. The issue is in my backpack, but I left it at home today.
  20. Cool. BTW, if you're an independent contractor, you desperately need business insurance to cover any damage that might happen to guitars in your care. The GC or Raritan Bay insurance won't cover you. Having a $5000 guitar on your bench is cool, but having something bad happen to that $5000 guitar on your bench could really hurt you financially. Anyway, good luck! /IT Consultant
  21. I think they're OK, but as you point out, I can't stand the singer. I do love Petrucci's work, especially his solo stuff.
  22. With EMG's I usually only do it to one lead, as that's all that's necessary.
  23. I don't do much of anything to personalize them to my liking other than changing the pickups.
