Went back and got my Epiphone this afternoon (Yes, open from 1- 5 on Sundays).
Fixed the hole where the screw as, raised the fret board (the top had a slight raising problem), changed out the eighth fret (was odd ball),replaced cracked saddle, installed bone type bridge which has a shim under it in case I want to get strings a little closer to frets, new (lighter) strings (not sure of brand) and adjusted and tuned.(Darn, that makes my guitar sound like it was a piece of junk)! Any way, all that for $60 bucks. IT PLAYS GREAT!
Selso---- The upright bass is $495 and you get a lifetime (maybe)supply of strings. Four rolls of weed eater string. That is what it is strung with and the gentleman said is tunes up great. I had to take his word for that.
SouthPaw----The original Toilet seat Guitar(made by him) was from a used toilet seat. It sold quickly and then other orders came in for more. He said about the time he was tired of making them some magazine (Texas Open Road?)came by and did a story on his business. The orders started again. told him it may start again since I posted his site on the greatest guitar spot going.
Old Doll----- The Silver haired man said to tell you thanks but hugs are only given out in person.
When the Power of Love overcomes The Love of Power the world will be a better place.
