    This thread sure makes it hard to take college course on line. I keep checking for updates in the middle of my lectures...

    From the last thread...
    I have a guitar in storage that has an old non-retracting seatbelt for a strap. Broke a strap at band practice in the shed and improvised! Fairly comfortable and has a lot of length for adjusting. :D

    Dave has done a couple builds for me now, and he is excellent to work with. If you are ever going through GR let me know, you can come play through my 1515/66/1.

    Been over this a couple of times. Here's my SOP.

    Isopropyl alcohol and either a cloth rag or very fine automotive grit sandpaper to clean up the frets and fretboard.

    Zymol cleaner wax to clean up the body, hardware, neck and fretboard since it is a finished board.

    De-Oxit on all the electronics and output jacks.

    Ohio people, Pretty slick 810 on the bay, extra stoner points for previously being toured with by the Doobie Brothers

    Every once in a while, usually when I change strings, I polish the frets with fine steel wool and wipe the whole instrument down with a micro fiber cloth and some warm water. No oils, no chemicals or anything like that. That's usually when I tighten up the screws and check the setup as well. My Precision is overdue, but for some reason I don't sweat on it as much as my other instruments. I cleaned up my Les Paul recently and it looked like I was using it as boat anchor beforehand.

    That's a nice looking 810. I'm a sucker for natural wood. Cincinnati is a bit too far of a drive though. Cleveland? I'd be all over that.

    Ugh. So many cool things in the works. Can't give specifics, but we may or may not be playing with a band at the end of 2013 that starts with a Y and ends with a B and is three letters...

    Best dudes. We got screwed out of playing with them last time they came through Chicago.

    NEW QUESTION TIEM: I just got an EHX Superego. It's cool, but I don't know what the hell to do with it. I also have a Bass Big Muff. I'm considering returning both and getting a swanky ass fuzz to replace them. I'm happy with my current sound, but A new fuzz would make me happier and I just don't know how often I'd use the Superego. Any boutique/ generally awesome replacement ideas?
