TUNING HACK ALERT!
So my #dangelicoexss has been giving me some tuning issues. Wanted to use it today on a session. Figured it was from the 3x3 tuniners...causing an angle at the nut. I recently heard about the #stringbutler. Before I ordered one, I figured I could wrap some plastic ties around the 2 pairs of strings to cause a straight path thru the nut. Yup. It works. Now do I order the string butler for 50 bucks or use these ties that cost pennies? Lol. Yeah...the butler looks prettier....but this is a great hack. Got me through the session. And keeps my punk NY attitude alive! I love this guitar!!! And yes...I'll be ordering the string butler. If it's good enough for @philx1111 ...

Do the strings lift out of the nut freely? If they pinch, the nut slots need widening.

Funny thing, I thought of making this product many years ago. I didn’t know one existed now. But alas, someone else did made it and I didn’t. I’d get it. I know something like this works. 😉

I've wanted to try that same thing on my Les Paul. I didnt know the string Butler existed.... Hmmm

Thankyou @theguitarer Paul Livoti.
Masterful setup. Honestly feels better than when I first bought her. Highly recommended for all your fretted instrument work!

#skrewballwhiskey
Every drink of liquor you take kills a thousand brain cells. Now that doesn't much matter 'cause we got billions more. And first the sadness cells die so you smile real big. And then the quiet cells go so you just say everything real loud for no reason at all. That’s ok, that's ok because the stupid cells go next, so everything you say is real smart. And finally, come the memory cells. These are tough sons of bitches to kill.” “- Adele Invergordon: Was there something about me that you particularly missed? Something that I can feel gratified about depriving you all these years?
- Rannulph Junuh: I liked the way we danced.”

Monter Cancer Center

Practicing at the Monter Cancer Center with my wife receiving her 3rd chemo treatment. No excuse not to practice. Even Lori is working hard prepping for the new school year.

Some of my studio amps! Starting a collection of combo amps. The motif will be amps too heavy to take to a gig.

This quick vid is me using too many bends to put the guitar out of tune. But Rock Solid tuning prevails now on my #dangelicoexss thanks to some help from the Mighty #stringbutler! Tuning was ok but now she can take all the bends I throw at her! All she says is "Thank you may I have another!"
This thing is for real.
