Haha yeah, got it out from under the bed last week. I needs a lot of work! Truss rod needs adjusting, the strings are about 3 miles away from the frets. Ideally I’d like to get a 24” Fender neck and route the neck pocket. Not sure I’ll ever do it though.


Fuck Aug!

Truth!



Do you think it could be made good?

I’ve had a couple of goes since that post about it and have come to the conclusion that the neck is fucked unfortunately. Truss rod is as tight as it can go now and there’s still a pretty big bow, which sucks. Maybe someone with more skills than me could fix it, but it’s definitely not worth me paying someone to do that. Fuck Aug.

Bowed forward?

Such a shame. If you were closer I would be happy to look at for you. Could maybe clamp it straight?

Yeah bowed forward. I might clamp it at some point, it’s on the list of things to do. Am putting together a jazzy partscaster at the moment so it’ll be a while.

Cheers mate, appreciate it. I might just take you up on that when the girls go back to school in a couple of weeks.

It’s 24”. Been looking out for a lefty squier shortscale but no joy yet. Plus that would mean routing the neck pocket too.

Group shot....this isn’t even everything but this is the probably the most satisfied I’ve ever been with my guitar collection.

I realised 2 things

1. I have an uploaded account
2. I’ve never posted a picture of my guitars

So let’s remedy that.

There is one more, an 89 Epiphone Les Paul that I’ve kept for sentimental reasons and just lives under the bed, but these are the ones I play.

2013 Gibson Les Paul 1959 reissue
1964 Fender Jazzmaster
Martin 00-15M

I don’t really have an urge to buy anymore TBH.

A gentleman's set. No wonder you don't want anything more. These three must be keepers

Hahaha. I'll have to go into exile due to my longscale ways.

@Sunshiner - they do everything I need, and do it well. I used to have 30 or so guitars so it was a big change going down to just these.
