What would a holiday be without a few sales. If you are looking for some photography book bargains I got word that my publisher, Peachpit Press is having a pretty good run on photo books this weekend, including my latest on the 7D Mark II and the +Scott Kelby  Lightroom CC book. Hit the link for more info -http://ow.ly/P5qRM

I just placed my first custom guitar order with +Warmoth Guitar Products this afternoon. The body is Swamp Ash and the neck is sold Indian Rosewood. The body will be arriving unfinished but I am going to do a blue stain on it so it should look something like the photo. The pickups will be a Seymour Duncan SH-1N '59 Humbucker. For the middle I'm leaning towards a Seymour Duncan SSL-4 Quarter Pound RWRP Strat pickup. The bridge will be a Seymour Duncan Little 59 Tele. I'll run a 5-way switch and possible coil taps for the bridge and neck. Of course all this might change except for the body and neck, which I ordered today. Should be a fun project when all is said and done.

Good choice with Warmoth. Their quality is second to none. Sounds like you are going to have a ton of useful tones with your pup choices. Solid rosewood neck is an interesting choice. I have played a fender rosewood tele reissue a number of years back. Is that where you got the idea from?

Check out my buddy +Scott Kelby's latest upload to 500PX. I think he is finally getting the hang of this photography thing. ;-)
 
Just posted another one of my shots from the Howey-in-the-Hill mansion shoot (art direction and styling by Kalebra) over on 500px. It's an all-natural light shot – to see it larger (you really need to see it larger), go right here: http://bit.ly/1ArCXDK
Taken at the Howey Manion in Howey-in-the-hills, Florida. A natural light shoot, shot with a 70-200mm lens. Art Direction and Styling by Kalebra.

Looking for a song tab? Songsterr always helps me out. Today's choice, Ramblin Man solo from the Allman Brothers Band. Love that E Major Pentatonic.

I just picked up this very nice Peavey USA tele. Now it's time for a little hot rodding. Just ordered new pots, a 4-way switch, Tusq string tree, and of course, new pickups. Should be a sweet little axe when I'm done.

So I got in all my goodies to start fixing up the tele and hit a big snag. Apparently the pot mounting holes on the control plate are smaller than the standard 3/8" threads on most pots these days. That means I would need to either find smaller threaded pots that will fit a 5/16" hole, or get a new control plate and hope it is the same dimensions as the original. Another annoying thing is that the screw holes for mounting the new 4-way switch are too small as well. It looks like it will be replacement plate as my first option and drilling the original plate as a backup plan. You just never know what you will find when upgrading old gear.

So today I did something that I never thought I would do, I got rid of my Les Paul Traditional. Well, I didn't get rid of it, I traded it for something else; a beautiful PRS DGT. My attachment to the Les Paul was based on a couple of factors. First, it was the first "expensive" guitar that I had ever purchased. When you spend over a grand on a guitar, it makes an impression. Second, the Les Paul was the guitar of so many of my guitar heroes (I could make a list but you probably already know who they are). How could I not have one in my collection? And there it sat, this beautiful Les Paul Traditional with a great flame, hanging on my wall. I would pull it down from time to time to play but there was always one thing that kept it from being my favorite playing guitar and that was the weight. It has no weight relief and it's one heavy sucker.

Having so many guitars at my disposal to play, I usually opted for a more comfortable model whenever I was going to be playing for any length of time. Still, I always thought it would always be part of my collection. That is until I saw a guitar that a friend had for sale. He has no emotional attachments to most all of his gear and buys and sells on a daily basis. I saw the PRS DGT over at his house yesterday and he was going to be listing it on CraigsList later that day. Well, I instantly fell in love with it, with its sexy curves, super playable neck, and amazing tones. It just seemed to fit me. From a pure musical perspective, the DGT is so much more versatile than the Les Paul. The Traditional was just two 57 Classic humbuckers and it just knew one speed, all out balls to the walls rockin. There were times when I wished it was a little more versatile but hey, it's a Les Paul.  

I knew I didn't have the cash to buy it but then it occurred to me, why not make a trade. Seeing the DGT had broken my emotional bonds with the Les Paul and I was ready to let it go. Later that evening I asked my buddy if he would be interested in a trade and after a little haggling, we made it happen.  Now I have a beautiful DGT that I know will get lots of play time and less guilt from lack of use. That being said, I still need to work on the guilt from the other 20 or so I have hanging around. Oh, and as a side note, I traded the Les Paul back to the guy I bought it from so it was like it was going home. Of course he probably already has it listed on CraigsList :-)

arranging a different pick up selection would have been my first thought.  From the p90, p100 and the hundreds of pickup options, If it were an important guitar such as you defined by your earlier comments.  Most importantly though the point is that you were not attached to it by an ambilicus so its a matter of personal choice.    Who knows if you tranded with your friend it may only be a few weeks before the urge recurs.
