Mason Bernard Guitar: Hands on Part 1

After seeing a friend of a friends post on facebook, a picture of two guitars- one a vintage/high-end looking BC Rich, the other one I did not recognize.  The mutual friend showing me the post mentioned that this person probabaly wouldn't buy a garbage guitar.

Les Paul wiring Part 2

Okay, now I'm good.
I've just finished updating the wiring job from the other week... Swapped out the Blusebucker for a vintage Lawrence L-500. As much as I like the Blusebucker, it is not versatile at all.  It's also much easier to clean up a hot pickup.

Les Paul wiring, 5way + 3way!!!

Initially, I wanted to wire up my `91 Gibson Les Paul (Studio Lite) as Bill Nash does, which is basically two humbuckers with the tone controls set to split each when turned past 8... But I wanted more options ;)

Super Strat custom wiring

A while back, I finally decided on the pickup set for my old fav `91 Ibanez RG570: Dimarzio PAF Pro in the neck and Evolution in the bridge, with a Wilde L-298sm in the middle (designed/built by Bill Lawrence). Similar to Steve Vai's setup, I thought it'd do this guitar justice.

Linux is calling me back

Way back in 2006, I "switched" to Linux from Windows Xp (even had a nifty tri-boot setup with WinXP, Ubuntu 7, and Marklar), but it was a half hearted switch: I was still using Windows apps (like Dreamweaver) within *nix.  In late 2007, I switched to Mac.

DETOUR!!! Develop for Android... hmmmm

With all my items on the TODO list on the go, going on a bit of a detour tonight... I just found out about the different ways of emulating the Android OS on a mac for development, and you know I'm all about emulation!  Downloading a VM here http://virtualboximages.com/Android+OS+2.6.29+x86+Virtual+Appliance and the SDK etc here http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

Dusted off my twitter account, which I signed up for back in 2009 and did nothing with at the time... now to integrate it with this site!  There's got to be a Drupal module for that... Added to the TODO list!
