    I kinda liked the double cut Telecaster they did last year, but this one I don't understand. It will just sound like a Strat, so why not get a Strat?
    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.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    Seems like everyone is running out of ideas for new guitars.

    I've built 2 of these. The first one might just as well have been a Strat. The second, with a Tele bridge pickup, was a much more viable idea.

    Yeah, the pickup arrangement doesn't make sense to me. It's basically a single cutaway Strat.

    Herb is the wise man who told me to put a Tele bridge pickup in and of course, he was dead on. Hey, Jerry, what's the story with the Japanese maple? Now that it's had some time to put out roots, it should start growing this summer.

    Haven't heard from Herb in quite a while. What's up with him?

    The maple is doing well, but I planted it in a container since I wasn't sure where it would do well. It became sun-scorched last summer where I had it. Giving it more shade this year before earthing it. I have since become a JM addict thank you very much and have quite a few encircling the property.

    It doesn't float my boat either.
    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.
