    So I finished this guitar up and and did the hsh pickguard swap. Cut the headstock to normal small fender.
    A local ham radio guy had this single coil harmony. He plays iron maiden and stuff like that. Not alot of $ so I wanted him to have something better.
    Hopefully he likes it.
    No more cherry. 20211006_100407.jpg 20210928_194115.jpg 20210923_120631.jpg

    The squash bugs have been killing all our pumpkins. I think we pulled that one before it was ready so it wouldn't die

    He is pretty happy. I had to make him take it. He is one of those guys that is stubborn. He has this old beat up harmony sss and I know he wants to really rock. And you need good pickups for rock and metal. So I have too many guitars and I already sold a bunch. And built 2 of these hsh strats so now I might have room for something else lol

    Good deed indeed. I’ve given away a handful, mostly to kids and teenagers. Their excitement and smiles are payment enough.

    I think for him it wasn't until he plugged it in, but I dropped it off at his house. He's about a hour away. So we didn't stick around. My kids were being trouble.
    He got ahold of me just a while ago. He seems pretty happy with it.

    I gave away a Squier Jag Bass to a Grandfather who wanted one for his Grandson. I got it for $65, and it cleaned up almost instantly. It played really nice. I’ve got the longer scale version now, it’s awaiting some attention and maintenance.

    Very cool of you, but I do want to hear him play Iron Maiden on an old Harmony

    I’ve given away a few guitars (mostly acoustics), it’s a dang good feeling… and an even better one when they send you a video of them playing it beautifully.

    It really is, especially when you are helping someone who had a guitar stolen from them before and can't afford anything. He can't find deals like I can either because he doesn't drive right now. He's going through a ruff spot. I have more than enough stuff. It wasn't easy getting him to take it. Haha. I told him today he didn't have a choice haha. So we showed up and and brought him the guitar and some ham radio stuff so he can fix his antenna and stuff.
    We talk on the radio often. He's just on the other side of the mountain mingus) here in Northern arizona
