spring incoming

you know spring is soon to be in pensacola when you see a bunch of robins feeding in the yard.

hot idea . . . cold feets

working up the courage to take a perfectly functional bass and rout to drop the bridge lower into the body and rout out a new cavity to replace a jazz single-coil pickup with a humbucker. will post before and after pics if all goes well.

chickens ?!?!?

yeah . . . chickens. a whole herd of them in my yard in the middle of pensacola. was tempted to shoot one for dinner but the local constabulary would probably take a dim view of that. now keep thinking of arroz con pollo.
