Now that I've wasted a good 1/2 hour at work, I feel like I've accomplished something.

The past few days I've been trying to fix the neck on my Gibson and I actually got it. Suprisingly, it actually plays better now than it did before I snapped the neck off. I bought that Gorilla Glue stuff, it's supposed to be the strongest glue ever. I glued the head back to the neck, but the amount of area that was actually wood touching wood was like, 30% of what it SHOULD be. Dang. SOOOO there was a ton of empty space where the wood splintered and I lost big chunks. So then I bought some wood filler in a tube, and squeezed and packed that all in the empty spots, let it dry, then sanded it down. I strung it up last night (awaiting the sheer horror of it snapping off and strings and wood come flying into my face) and it held. I've left it like that overnight to see if it is stretching, if not, then it'll be fine.

I also bought the Les Paul version so now I have a Melody Maker set. Laura picked it up in Hagerstown for me yesterday and brought it home. It is in ALOT better shape than when I bought the SG. The frets are almost perfect and the wood is in alot better condition. Whoever had the SG before me really went to town on it, but the Les Paul is really nice.

Tonite I buy tuning machines and I'll install the pickup into it and a output jack and we'll see how it sounds.

My stomach hurts alot and I have gas, yet again. Phew!
