Happy pickin/blowin all.

A harmonica that once belonged to my grandfather. (And dark green Spartan)

And my Hohner G3T headless that I modified to be a hard tail. Trem was crappy so I filled the route with maple and refinished blue but left the back of the neck unfinished. Will tung oil eventually. Gonna put in Carvin dual-rails and Gambale humbucker. Gonna try to thin down to just 3 or 4 guitars, this being one of them. About to put an Allparts roasted quartersawn neck on my 85 MIJ Tele. Neck is MIJ too so I figure it matches.

The Wenger style pliers work great for cutting guitar strings.  Just line up the holes on the jaws. insert the end of the string, and slide the pliers down the string until they are next to the tuning key and cut the string.

Here is my 1979 T60with a vic rambler hanging on the strings

here
Write does this bring back memories. I remember a hundred of these and T40s hanging in a music store in a million different colors. This was in Alabama at about 1981, only a couple hundred miles from Peavey's plant.

The pliers are great for tugging the wire in the tuning nut securely and than wire clipping the excess string off the ends and the hook is great for giving the strings that first stretch :tu: Go SwissChamp!

Always great to come across other musicians over here   :cheers:

I never used the hook to stretch strings, and don't plan on doing it either. I think the hook is too thin and may damage or put a kink in the string if you are not careful  :-\
I always stretch my strings by hand using 4 fingers, i have a lot more feel and control over it this way so i don't go too far  :salute:

Wow nice! Always loved Jazzys - how does it play? Got a 94 Jaguar myself. I'm sure I posted pics on MTO somewhere before! If not - will make sure to post later tonight!
