    Thanksgiving Menus??!!

    I have a couple huge slabs of wild salmon that have been marinating for nearly two days, and I’ll be broiling Brussels sprouts with parmesan cheese and garlic. I’m making stuffing and gravy from scratch as a nod toward tradition, and my oldest friend Bob (who was the drummer in the trio we...

    Axe-Fx III Factory Presets 16.04

    While the possibility of even more enhanced, updated presets is absolutely cause for celebration, I have to admit that my heart sank a little at the thought of your taking on that Sisyphian task once again. When Cygnus was rolling out, I was extremely conscious of what was going on in the...

    NGD – .strandberg* Prog NX 7

    Hope I’m not overdoing this … but I got an identical pair of stands, and can now display my new Strandbergs side-by-side … along with Milla the guitar kitty. I’ve also given the seven-string Milla’s middle name … Mishka. So here they are … Milla, Mishka, and Doctor Tanya.

    NGD – .strandberg* Prog NX 7

    Thanks for asking! Here she is … Milla, named after Leeloo in The Fifth Element. Her full name is Milla Mishka Multipass Walters. “Mishka” is what the animal rescue clinic was calling her, so I kept it as a middle name. She’s a sweetheart. Coming up on our 10th anniversary. Here she was the...

    NGD – .strandberg* Prog NX 7

    Whoa! Dude! I have the feeling this Seven is going to give me a lot to chew on for quite a while. But I am already considering a Standard 6 with a trem bridge, to use as a banger … They’re small, don’t take up much space, and my cat wouldn’t mind … unlike some spouses. : )

    Today, the follow-up to my DR Titanium arrived … I’ll make this short for now, and try to be a little more articulate later, after I’ve slept. First, I’ve never played a seven-string, so I’m working on wrapping my head around that … Second, with the active Fishman Fluence Modern pickups and...

    SOLD 60th Anniversary American Standard Jade Pearl Strat – Customized

    Welcome back for part two! I added a custom set of glass knobs made by Bill Wiggin’s wife (she’s not making them any more) and a padauk switch tip to match the pickups. As I mentioned, this is a 60th anniversary American Standard … A couple shots of the rosewood fretboard … These...

    SOLD 60th Anniversary American Standard Jade Pearl Strat – Customized

    I’m selling my much-loved and tweaked Stratocaster for one reason – I’ve caught the Strandberg bug, and have purchased two in the past year. And once I got my hands on one, I really don’t want to play anything else. Time to thin the herd. There’s a lot to discuss, so I’ll start with the basics...

    The Axe-FX has ruined me . . .

    My god, for the very first time in my life as a keyboard player, I can make an somewhat informed comment about an AMP. I got a THR30II mainly because – frankly – I thought it would make a great true-stereo portable Bluetooth music player. Anything else was a bonus. But once I started using the...
