Me too RJ, I brew my own beer and distill spirits (making a really fine bourbon these days) and have just started wine making. My peach wine is a peach, as  we wine makers say, very drinkable, with a hint of peach. Can't remember tho last time I was drunk,  not because I was drunk, just too long ago

I'm an avid homebrewer with a few beers on tap at all times.  Having said that, I hate even feeling tipsy let alone drunk.  So I'm like Whitestrat in that I may have 1 or 2 over the course of an evening but that's it.

Never been much of a drinker. I don't abstain, but 1 or 2 drinks, over a couple of hours, is more than enough for me....
You might be right, neil....  :P

Alcohol is so very "college" for me.  I drank a lot of it back in college.  Didn't drink any in HS. After graduate school, it became sort of ho-hum.  Now, occasionally I'll have a beer at a restaurant with dinner. I don't even keep them at the house.  Now, Diet Coke on the other hand...

Used to drink soda (pop) a long time back, but got so I didn't care for anything carbonated.  I do miss a good Root Beer once in a while - with ice cream...

Been 17 years alcohol free here, and my bev of choice is pop....WAY too much pop! :P 8)

Yeah, but I gave up alcohol back in the early '70's.  Been coffee ever since.  4-5 cups an hour when I'm home, 2-3 an hour when I'm out working.  Every place I work knows they get a better deal if they keep coffee handy...

Project (New Gear Day)
« on: January 22, 2018, 11:10:13 PM »
A little belated Christmas present came my way this week ;D

It’s a build your own guitar kit  :P

I opted for a Thinline Tele model c/w Bigsby style trem (more for looks than using to be honest lol).
Comes routed for humbuckers (included in the kit), but I’m going to try a pair of Guitar Fetish Retrotrons (Filtertron clones)  ;D

Looks pretty nice out of the box - solid feel, top is capped I see, supposed to be basswood body maple neck and rosewood fingerboard - is it? Buggered if I know lol
All I know is it’s made of wood  :P
Definitely not particle board anyway lol  :P

Neck sits nicely in the socket, each piece is “numbered” - whether it’s actually matching or they just wrote the same number on both is unprovable lol

If you want, here’s the link http://diyguitarkits.net/tele%20thin%20II.html
Actual pics below

Leaning towards a light metallic blue for finish, similar to the Pelham Blue ES339 @gc fixed up a while back.....not fully committed yet though  :D

Think this will be fun  ;D

They leave it like that (apparently) so you can make whatever kind of shape your twisted little mind can think of....

But yes.... definitely Fenderish....

Nice kits these, NM (good quality & rep).  Very cool project with lots of custom possibilities.  Get to learn a ton doing it too.  Guitar Fetish Retrotrons should be sweet.  Look nice in Pelham blue.  Sounds like fun.
