    I never thought I would also lose a friend over this instrument but Rick Nielsen is so jealous that he will no longer talk to me.

    It'd suck if you fell off the ladder while attaching your strap to the upper pin... I'm sure that a 3" wide padded leather strap could make you just as dead as a hangman's noose.

    So, it seems as if the Jazz is the only one with volume control. What muting technique are you using? :D

    Brace yourself: It's just a matter of time before someone asks about the width at the nuts.
