Worked the first half of the day, then kids and grandkids came out for the afternoon.  Didn't know it, but one of the granddaughters is studying to be a pediatric nurse in the Air Force.  Go figure.  From all the news, just doesn't seem like a good time to jump into the military...

It did, Smurf.  Met some new neighbors, got to see a couple we hadn't seen for a while, and just had a good chat.  And everybody enjoyed the food.  We enjoyed it.  But now tomorrow and Monday will be cleaning up and moving a ton of stuff again...

I'm glad to hear that so many did show up with the weather being so sucky, and glad everyone had a good time! ;D

That included you folks also, right?! 8)

Well, after all that work it's over.  Did rain all day, so it was an inside affair.  And of course the rain kept a few from coming, ended up with 36.  All had a great time chatting and eating, it was worth the work.  And I have leftovers.  Now, song stuff...

Well, everything is ready to go, whether it's inside or out.  Tons of prep work, lots of food ready to cook, and today the wife baked 4 cakes and 50 cupcakes for dessert.  We have food for 50, but with the rain I don't expect more than 30 or so.  In any case, won't be back here till tomorrow night...

Some probably won't come, and the rest will all have to fit in the house somehow.

Why me Lord?
What have I ever done
To deserve even one
Of the days that I've had

Ah well...  :P

Got the 2 picnic tables hauled in and set up today, 30 lawn chairs ready to go, tables to cook outside, lots of other crap, and just saw that now they're calling for rain tomorrow...  :o >:( ???

Computer problems all fixed for the day.  Just corrupted system files.  They're happy.  Now to the real work stuff...

Well, gotta go fix a computer problem, then back to prepping for Saturday.

Have to find time in there somewhere to write a song...  ???

I'm just being silly based on neil's comments of weed varieties.  In my head, it was funny to associate Acoustic Alchemy to weed shops.   ;D ;D

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

LMAO of course!!

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.
