i think it was $300, but i'll have to check. Not local to me, but near my father who had the guitar at the time.

That seems reasonable. I'll have to ask around Austin -- I'm sure there's someone here that does good refinish work.

if you don't find anything, the guy I used has been doing this for decades and has my highest recommendation.

Being 60 years old it probably is time for a fret job and having the pots cleaned or perhaps one of them replaced. I just hate to mess with it because everything is untouched.

Could be a twisted neck.

Plugged my hand held synth looper into the amp with a nice rock drum pattern and played along to my guitar assignment (Space Oddity) for 30 minutes. Really makes you watch your rhythms and chord change timing and I'm loving it all works together.

I'll try next week. Right now I'm sort of occupying part of our lounge area but I plan to set up shop in one of our spare bedrooms over the next 10 days. It will eventually become my home recording studio.

Any Amazon recs for a sturdy but not overpriced guitar stand?

Don't be jealous as I highly doubt StephenHero would approve.

I like this one, it holds electrics and acoustics and will give you some room for expansion! smile.gif

In a dedicated area, I like to have my guitars hanging and off the floor. It makes for a cool display, they don't get bumped as often, they seem easy to grab and play, it is easy to clean around them, etc...

There are numerous styles in various woods if you like that look. Some let you choose the wood and finish. Or, for a more contemporary look go with something simple and black. Here are a few examples. You can see a lot more by simply doing a search for "guitar hanger". I like simple smaller ones. That way you don't see them when they are holding a guitar.

i have a few wall hangers lingering around at home. I haven't put them up because i don't believe that my walls have the integrity to hold them.
