    I know what you mean - I just started playing bass and it's a whole different feel. Fun to learn how to keep it from buzzing while developing a whole lot more left hand strength. Got mine set up by a local session musician who is also a luthier. Boy, it sounds a lot better when he is playing it than when I am.

    Good luck - it looks nice.

    I've got far too many guitars, but these get most of my playing time:

    That video was awesome. I like seeing craftsmen at work, and the specialized tools they use. Makes me want to go build stuff in the garage.

    I picked up a Vox AD30VT today. I like playing with all of the built in effects and models.

    It did however crush my latent dream of ever building one myself. I went from 'how hard can it be' to 'holy crap this is difficult!'

    I wanted to try some effects and on bewbtube I saw a cool iPhone thingymajig where you plug into the phone and can model all kinds of amps and stuff.

    So I tried my own...

    I couldn't figure it out so I called my son who is pretty good with new-fangled electronics.

    He said I'm a dumb ass and needed an adapter... hmmm can I get one at RadioShack?

    Here is a photo of my blues rig. The best part is the amp. According to the serial number it is a 1969 Fender Princeton Reverb. I have retubed it with Sovtek tubes. Nice sound!

    I have an amp like that, not sure of the age, but I've had it since the early 70's and it was used then. Previous owner put a 12" JBL in it and used it for a PA for his magic act.:lol3
