Fueled by caffeine and easter candy, I thought to myself "Hey, I should do some setups today". Armed with allen wrenches, truss rod tools, strings and my natural charismatic machismo, I did setups and a quick fret-clean on both of these. Penny is in E Standard, Greenie is in Drop D.
Being that Penny was also a resto by Mike, I had to hunt around to find a random 8mm driver, because the truss rod's previous owner decided to strip the fuck out of the old bolt and stack a half dozen washers on it. Tool acquired, Grand Magus administered, I set to work.
Then I thought, "Shit, I'm on a roll." So I did setups on both of these, too. JP7 is in B standard, JP6 is down a halfstep. The EBMM truss rod adjustment is the best thing ever. It's at the bottom (top?) of the neck towards the bridge, and you don't need to remove anything to get at it. Makes quick adjustments a snap. (The bridge is a bit of a different story, but we all know my skill at setting up floaters... Or lack thereof..)
Then I thought, "Hmm, well I have a bunch of sets of 11-68 Elixirs, may as well toss a fresh one on this guy for recording next week!"
I figured I was done, but wait - this guy had a setup last week, but the strings are a few weeks old and I'm going to record this week, so fuck it - may as well change the strings and adjust the saddles on my #1 guitar as well!
Three floating bridges, 6 truss rods, 4 cups of coffee, one pack of Easter Peeps and seven (oops) packs of strings later, at least some of my collection is ready for spring!
Holy smokes.. How much candy did you eat, bro? Wanna jog down here and work the rest of that sugar off setting up a few of my guitars?
