    Ah ****!

    I would dowel the hole in the body and use a short screw to "fill out" the holes in the neck plate. It could always be drilled out later if a different neck is used. EZPZ :cool:

    Sociopath Next Door ... The Saga Ccontinues

    But I don't live in Austin... 😁 Best of luck to you rolandson, just the stress of this type of situation can make recovery from serious health issues even more difficult than it has to be. Sounds like things are improving and hopefully justice will be served. Sounds like you might have the...

    Fret King guitars: opinions?

    Looks to be well built, and according to Wikipedia "Other notable users of Fret-King branded guitars include Jeff Brown of Cats In Space" What more do you need? 😁 😎

    Getting Some Information

    Hardware is easy and relatively inexpensive. I use stainless steel screws wherever possible when reassembling. New hardware looks good and when combined with a decent fret level/polish/cleaning and setup can make a world of difference in looks and performance. :cool:

    I got a problem (And I made it myself :0)

    The fact that such large areas chipped away so readily makes me think that the original surface prep was not done correctly. If the surface is too smooth (i.e. final sanded with 400 grit or higher) then when the finish is applied there's not enough "grip" for the finish to latch onto. I would...

    New job or new new job?

    I thought they were (in order): 1) Old job: too much of a part time gig 2) New job: too many miles on personal vehicle 3) New new job: boss copped an attitude when called out for altering time card and fired you (the ba$****!) 4) Staffing agency Sounds like the staffing agency is a good...

    New job or new new job?

    Good luck with the job search. Skilled trades are still in high demand and I believe you will find something soon. Even if it is just something to pay the bills until the "right" one comes along!

    suggestions for powerful laptop?

    Video editing is demanding on the processor, so processor specs would be a primary consideration. Look for the fastest quad core Intel of the most current generation. Video editing is one of the few types of computing that is capable of parallel processing and really benefits from multiple...

    New job or new new job?

    Seniority is nice, but you haven't been at the "New" job long enough for that to be a consideration. Construction/Skilled Tradesmen are in high demand everywhere as baby boomers retire there aren't enough replacements for them. Everybody wants a degree and a desk job these days, many of whom...

    The eye passed right over the house about 5:30 this morning. No damage, not much rain, never lost power. Working remotely today, probably back in the office tomorrow. Hoping everyone else fares well.

    There are 10 types of people... those that understand binary numbers and those that don't.

    I’m open to suggestions.

    I would use a wooden plug with a low profile, rounded top, and a shoulder to fit inside the hole. Stain it close to the same color (or any other color you like) and secure it with a screw and washer into the plug from the back side. You can always remove it later returning the body to it's...

    Why do they answer???

    Sounds familiar... "Wasn't that a party? Someone took a grapefruit and wore it like a hat, I saw someone under my kitchen table, talking to my old tom cat, They were talking about hockey and the cat was talkin' back, Along about then everything went black,"
