    I started using Energizer Ultimate lithium AA's and AAA's in most of my battery powered devices. I had a really nice (i.e., expensive) Fenix flashlight in the car glove box that was ruined by 8 leaking Duracell alkaline batteries. When I called Fenix to see if I could get replacement parts, they shipped me a new flashlight. They have a customer for life now.

    Always nice to read about Tom and his Blue Guitar which i think would make a great title for a children's book!

    I string my guitars constantly because I have so many. I do it on my lap while watching movies on my computer and also treat the fretboard and frets with Gorgomyte in the process.

    When I was in high school and playing my S300AD to death, I brought it in for fret leveling and the guy who ran the shop gave me hell for using old strings. Rusty strings are like rubbing a rope saw across your frets so if you keep your strings fresh your frets will last longer. As a result I cannot stand old strings and I also have not needed a fret job on any of my guitars in decades. If I pull out a guitar that's been sitting and the strings aren't smooth like new it immediately gets a new set. The only guitar that doesn't always have new strings on it is my Taylor and that gets Elixer Nanowebs which I find to be amazing.

    And yes, I buy strings by the case.

    I use my kitchen table, Tom, but I'm thinking that I really need a workshop so I can work on my guitars (and guns) without clearing the table.

    EZ, is that a koa top or it redwood? Beautiful.

    Tom, really glad you're enjoying yours. Does it have one of those bridge doctors built into the body? I seem to recall that Breedlove did that.

    No, Charlie, this is just regular normal/formal guitar construction. I think they dropped that bridge doctor thing a while back. Neither of my Breedloves has it. That Myrtlewood topped larger one is LOUD!! Holy Crap!!

    HarryMo, just in case you missed it, I also just got her bigger badder sister about a month ago!! Here's the sisters together by the fireplace. Let me just say that myrtlewood is an AMAZING soundboard material!! I highly recommend. Heavy on the BASS and mids for sure but the highs are clear and lovely. It's almost like it's plugged in even when it's not!!! No lie!!



    I really wish the Orgeon Concert Rogue (the blue one) photographed true to color. It just doesn't at all. Refer to the Breedlove site for better photos than EYE can ever do!!! Still diggin' the "Love" sisters!! It's string changing time here at the house and we sold our dining room set when we left the old house. I have a beautiful, all mahogany Federal style dining table that I've had for years. I stripped it, and spit coated it and then.... we've been carting it around since forever!! We might even paint it, but I'm not sure yet. But it looks like this!!

    Plus the old Throne chair. A Gothic revival reproduction that's at least 100 years old but no one wants furniture any more. NO ONE. It falls into the category of what they call "Old Brown Furniture". No one wants it from their parents, their grandparents, or us. It's worthless!! Isn't that sad?? They all shop at IKEA......





    Dear GOD what to do???

    That's what I did for a living. Took peoples old stuff and made it look new. Then took other peoples new stuff and made it look old. Seriously? But in the meantime, where do I change my strings?????

    Sorry, I've been away for a while. The masterclass is a Redwood top with Walnut back and sides. Sounds amazing!
