If I only had my routing table set up, I could break out the templates and route out a recessed FR cavity no problem.

I seriously hate the trem system on my strat because you look at it wrong and it'll go out of tune, but I think I'd use it more if I could lock them in there. Only problem is that I'm addicted to new strings and FR bridges don't sound like an enjoyable experience for changing strings. Maybe I'll just go for the dead string evh brown sound haha.
this is precisely why I just went for a tele. I haven't looked back I love this stupid thing.

I've played a couple Teles. The bridge pickups always sound awesome. Perfectly wangly jangly sound, but it doesn't do anything sonically that my les paul can't do. Someone once said to me that a tele is just a wood cutting board with a guitar neck attached to it and every time I pick one up, that's all I can think about haha

Iím about as mechanically inept as it gets, and string changes on floating trems are no big deal. You can either do one string at a time or get yourself a proper size foam block to keep the bridge horizontal with the body while you change all 6.

I have a 2019 rgr652ahb prestige with a super wizard and Edge double locker. OEM Dimarzios sucked so I dropped in SD Black Winters \m/\m/. I still get it out once in awhile, but since I found Kiesel it doesnít get the love it used to.

Maaaan, thatís some harsh shit!

I thought the same way until I walked into a mom&pop for a midi cable and that smart salesman put Francine in my hands. I fucking love this guitar.

Here she is working some harmonic minor scale into a Coltrane tune.

The only Tele that works for me. I can't get into the Fender ones anymore. Give this one a shot, Kelso...

Once again on the subject of phrasing, I really like what these three are doing in general. And Iíve noticed since I stumbled on to Moonchild that I specifically admire this young ladyís vocal phrasing. Iím determined to emulate that kid of feel in my melodies, Iím just not sure how to work that kind of training into my daily practice yet. Just listening to them a lot seems to help though.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=o9OLI_WDoJQ

Iíve tried repeatedly to post vids the way the cool kids do, and have failed miserably. If posting a link this way is against the rules or something plz feel free to delete. Just do yourself a favor and listen to these talented people first.
