    I made a mistake ok @glmino can someone ask him to take me off ignore? Things like this, misunderstandings, people not wanting to talk to me - they make me upset and not want to be here. I've spent the last 15 minutes crying and throwing up from stress. I just want to be LIKED. I can't stand being excluded or not liked.

    I didn't mean to ridicule you if I did, and I really was only trying to defend a senior member who was upset.....I was in the wrong and should have kept my nose out of it.

    From now on I'm only going to make positive replies and comments.

    I want to apologize to the entire forum, especially the OP

    Here is another one that only I have ever seen to do!

    Take a piece of stranded wire about a foot long like 14 or 16 ga., remove the jacket/insulation, and here it comes...
    After you've shielded the control/pickup cavities, thread a strand through the pass through hole,lift up both ends and twist tie them
    ( this keeps the wire up out of the way ) solder against the shielding where the wire comes up, trim, and you are finished connecting all.

    He can't see post 41 because he has me on ignore @Davis Sharp - I think this is going to end up a comedy of errors lol thanks for trying to help....

    I think he needs to be told about the 'show ignored content' button at the bottom of the thread @mofojar @Davis Sharp

    Guitarmageddon. You can't see #41 because you've blocked him.

    I don't know who else is on your ignore list, but Guitarmageddon is one of the "good folks"

    This was just a misunderstanding.

    Just breathe Ryan, relax. Everything is all right buddy. Don't get to upset about this, you're hurting yourself.
    If the guy is blocking you, it's his lost. He won't have access to your knowledge and experience. Stay cool my friend.

    For those you who don't know, Guitarmageddon has Autism/Asperger syndrome. He has trouble with social relationships.
    He's a good guy, who's always trying to help. But sometimes, his comments can be perceived as negative or not friendly.

    You don't need to Guitarmageddon, you didn't do anything wrong. That guy probably got up on the wrong side of his bed this morning. Don't mind him.

    My mother always said stick tongue into socket before turning on amp. To make sure preamp tubes are getting hit up front with the required power...

    You know I have pretty poor eyesight and it's tough for me to see what's going on with a feeler gauge sometimes. I definitely can't feel any resistance from the string and fret. I have to watch for the string to move when I slide the feeler gauge under it. I really like this one. I bet you can also manipulate the feeler gauge when it's close and the meter beep will go on and off. When it doesn't go on and off anymore, you know you're right on.

    Keep your chin up, buddy. Those of us who've been around a bit understand you and some of the challenges you have when negativity is thrown your way. You handled it nicely and there's no reason for your apology not to be accepted and all be right in the Squire-Talk world. You're part of it and we need you.

    I know what you mean. I can only see the string move if the lighting is just right. I go mostly by sound, listening for gauge-on-string contact, but I know my hearing ain't gonna last forever.

    I have to say that I need to reply to this one for sure!

    Thank You, I appreciate that immensly.
    How this was developed was becuase I really couldn't "feel" ever with a feeler gauge. I would have to have good light careful eye and
    always have the guitars amplified, a lot!
    Yes, when you sneak the feeler gauge under the string and it sets off the light or sound by way of complteing the circuit, You're done!
    One can always use what they like but, I would say try this, have fun with it, You might need it later when You really need it.
    I'm not crazy old or anything but, I've been doing this for quite a few years.
    Had to get used to it, and did, I couldn't be more acurate any other way.
    Showed this to one of my friends, and he laughed his head off!
    But, He really thought it was neeto!!!
    And, He did laugh every time I utilzed it that day, we were then about 19 years of age.
