And I say treatments because I didn't do a *whole* lot. But, I am coming off a weird illness from last week, so I suppose that's good :lol:

Anyways, I switched out some bridge height set screws in my Samick Tele. The stock ones were 10 mm and chewing up my hands. Before I found these 6 mm long M3x0.5's, I had a piece of orange (hot, no less) duct tape on there to dull them :lol:. MUCH smoother now.



On my LP, I relocated the pickup selector switch, removed the JackPots, and added an on/off flip. The pups are still the same (BKP Rebel Yell and Mississippi Queen).



...and I dressed up what would have been empty holes with bolts and washers, and added my customized REBEL / YELL poker chip!

If I want to roll the volume back a bit, I either hit my volume pedal, or go lighter with my right hand.

95% of the time, whenever I reached for a volume or tone knob, it was to check that it was up all the way :)



Actually, that Tele doesn't have any pots, nor does The Roudness, and soon enough neither will the Hamer.

That's one thing that i often notice in live videos of guitarists… they tend to obsessively roll their pinkies on the volume knob (especially Strat players), even if it's already full-on.

Other than widening two holes from 3/8" to 1/2", nothing that's irreversible :)

Those washers are actually sealing washers, with a rubber coating on the bottom-side, that I got from McMaster-Carr, so they won't marr the finish :D

This might be a silly question... but, at what point do you hear the sound, and think, "I need to turn the volume down just a bit"?

i believe it's an emergency failsafe in case your instrument starts randomly djenting.

When you're playing tasteful blues licks! AKA anytime you're wearing cracker jack clothes!
