    By the way, Mike, how did the zero glide work out on the Les Paul? I realized that it will potentially not work for me because the biggest fret they ship with is 0.051" tall, and I use 6100s, which are 0.055" tall. Still, I'm curious.

    I'm not so sure you wouldn't be able to use it, unless you have zero relief on your truss rod setting, and saddle height probably plays into it as well. I forgot which size I used on the LP. The fret wire crown was .045". I will let you know more about this when I get done with finish repairs and set up the guitar (but I'll do it in the other thread).

    Sounds good, Mike! I have practically no relief. In fact, Phil congratulated me on my having graduating to a teeny bit of relief after all these years that he has warned me about it. When I adjust my truss rod now, its totally by feel, so I don't know what the measurements are. I'm looking forward to your zero glide update.

    Looks like you've got another good one in the making, Mike! :)

    Wow - Ma Nature had a little surprise in store for us! Nobody would ever know it was there unless they wet the wood or sprayed a coat of clear like I did. Look at this beautiful, subtle, tight, perfectly perpendicular flame!

    That's incredible! I had the same treat when I finished my Ashley's neck, the flame came up out of nowhere!

    This one is going to be something....that's for sure. I can't wait to see the finished product. If you ever quit your Dr'ing you should go work at the Fender custom shop. Or the Gibson custom shop..

    I think I'm going to try to create a burst along these lines:
