I'm actually not sure. He had pieces from a few guitars and a body he had gotten off a buddy years ago. Here is the back of that tells you anything. I can't play. Always wanted to, but I'm not very knowledgeable past common names

That cherry color is killer. Love that the wood grain comes through. The black accents are nice!! Do you typically put your own pickups in everything?

So far yeah, since my very first Squier I have yet to keep a guitar I own stock. But in this case I think I’m going to try swapping the ceramic magnets for alnico Vs in the stock pickups and add nickel/silver covers before I decide to change them out completely, as well as reconfigure and upgrade the wiring/pots to 50s style. Might make all the difference(sounds surprisingly good as is for an Epiphone), and doesn’t hurt my wallet nearly as much lol

Nothing says excess like a wall of Marshalls across the wall in your room. :)

Bought a giant 'tropical avocado' a few days ago and decided to see if it would sprout. I probably have a few months/years before it catches up with CDB's plant

Behold, Dirty Girl. She's now got a hair over 350k miles. She's got scuffs, dings, and multiple paint blemishes, but she's chugging along. Not sure if I mentioned it here or in another thread, but I had the transmission rebuilt earlier this month. Hopefully I get another 170k out of it. She will be needing a few other things here in 2020: tires, timing belt, spark plugs, etc. Everything said and done should be ~$2,200 at the end of 2020, oil changes included.

A few things I've learned attempting to sprout avocados:

1. You will have more success of having the avocado start in something like the one on the left. Skin on or off, doesn't really matter. Sticking toothpicks in it reduces the chances of it ever sprouting.

2. Avocados seeds have between 50% - 70% rate of sprouting

3. Avocados can take up to 3 months before they sprout. On the shorter end of the time scale is as little as 4 weeks.

4. Be sure that you supply / replace water every two weeks. This prevents microbial buildup that will create fungus, which in turn will kill the seed / root / sprout

Wow, those things are fragile! How the heck do they survive in the wild?
