    Check to see if your action is too low. If it is at an acceptable level, make sure the bridge has no loose pieces. Then check the tuners, and finally the frets to make sure none have become unseated. If you don't know how to check any of these t...(more)

    Well, perfect pitch helped me a lot. My first teacher taught it to me, and I haven't bought any printed music since.

    501-505 are already being built. And if you're idea involves cocobola, forget it. Remember how many times I went to the hospital because of my sinuses acting up from the sawdust from that crap?
