    I have a bridge that fits, but it overlaps a 72 TL pickguard. This model needs to be drilled for a vintage hardtail STRAT bridge, which I have, from Callaham. Thinking of scrapping it and digging out the string ferrules for the replacement.

    Tommy has been a friend for a long time and has always done me right. However, I asked him to do something he did not have a program for and he not only mixed a couple of different programs together, but did it in a hurry, and I will never again ask him to do something outside of what is listed on his site. He sold his business last year and now manages it for the owner. Unfortunately, the owner is a businessman, driven by numbers, and they are now backlogged and over-worked. I'm hoping that once they move into their new digs that they will also be properly staffed and the lead time will go back to something more acceptable, and that Tommy isn't stuck in there until midnight trying to keep up.

    His necks are leagues beyond Warmoth's; I will definitely vouch.

    Went to the International Musicians' Summit in Durham today and got to see Josh and Kirk jam (they are mind-blowingly gifted players) and Josh loves the neck, so we'll get there. We went out to dinner and it was god-awful good to talk about nothing but guitars and players (no politics). Awesome guys, both of them. You will notice here that Kirk has switched from his Thinline to a Les Paul, and that is because the neck on his TL went bad. I hope that he will like what I come up with for Josh, in which case I think I can perhaps put a neck on his 72 TL that will make him fall back in love with it. I would be happy to help him, not so much because he's such a great player, but because he's a wonderful guy and I have derived untold enjoyment from his music.

    Brilliant!
    You know, said Arthur, its at times like this, when Im trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish Id listened to what my mother told me when I was young.
    Why, what did she tell you?
    I dont know, I didnt listen.

    Love the grain on that fingerboard. It's gonna look stellar when put together.

    Looks and feels good, but the man plays 13s!



    Needs better shielding and grounding, and the pickups are very dark-sounding, so I'm going to put 1 meg pots and .015 caps in. Then it will be ready to ship.

    13s?! This is a Man's Man.

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
