But I think the trem vs vib question goes all the way back to Mr. Leo F mis-namining his wammy arm a tremelo. He...

    2020 ES-339 in action

    I have a 1st run 339. It's a great guitar! I have one with the 59 neck. (The phone flash made the fretboard look funky. It doesn't look like that.)

    Ben Franklin wasn't a very good Founding Father...

    Beyond all the things that have gone into the folklore realm like inventor, journalist, Franklin was the first American diplomat. He was a shmoozer. He traveled between the colonies and France and got France to give support for American independence. He had true diplomatic skills and convinced...

    R7 before and after Fret Doctor

    The Beafifer (Fret Dr) site has a few words on darkening a fretboard. "Darkening" Your Board A very frequent comment I hear is that "Fret Doctor darkens my board nicely!" Over time, with exposure to air, light, humidity, and wear and tear, the board faded. The Fret Doctor simply...

    R7 before and after Fret Doctor

    I've been using that for years on the rosewood and ebony. Works great. I only use a few drops, rub it to get in all the dry spots, lets it sit for a few, and rub it off. The wood does not feel slimy or sticky afterwards. Fret Dr. is the best stuff out there. Funny how there is so much...

I've met a few people like that over the years and in conversations with them and you know they are special. Dave Eggar...
