How you getting along with your ex-Slowy Baja? Mine seems identical to the last one which I guess speaks to Fender consistency.
I've got his PRS :mental:
Oh... Duh. Now you mention it I think I knew that. Sorry.
The Baja will be included in my estate. In fact, it will probably be my last electric (unless I get around to swapping the Baja electrics and pups to the Korinacaster and put the Lollars in the Baja.)

Which might work well, certainly would be interesting. But right now I lack the motivation to gut guitars.

I have an idea. Firstly I wanted to go Steampunk because, well why wouldn't you? But that's beyond my home resources. Now I'm thinking of an airbrush/drybrush maybe dark with metallic highlights. Going to talk with my artist niece next week.

Ya, AlieExpress taking forever. And some eBay. Yet, I got a leather tool bag from India in 5 days. Nothing makes sense anymore.

Ordered a guitar strap on amazon, was supposed to arrive on the 18th, now 19th-24th apparently... no tracking details except left amazon facility on the 1st...

Got a couple of things on the way from aliexpress, in no hurry for either :)

A new 4G modem for my business. Not really that exciting but I've got to have one for backup or rural/no internet streaming jobs.
