Re: Cleaning a guitar

You may need to de-wax the body, remove the years of wax buildup and then polish it up. Dunlop makes a cleaner prep for the fingerboard which I use for this purpose, it is safe on the finish and will remove the years of glop, though it may take some effort. Dunlop 01 or anything that says it removes...

Re: How do you set up stereo (for delays etc.)

Jeeez, what drivel! :roll: The poor guy just wants to know how to create a stereo 'sound' for his gear setup not a scientific explanation as to why he will never achieve 'true' stereo separation!

Re: 7/7/07

Gematria extends beyond Abrahamic beliefs and into the mysticism of the Qabalah and Hermetics, but I do dig the fact that Numerology goes back to ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia.

Calculate Steve's birthday. And I guess you know what 10 means. ;)

Steve's number is 10, not 9. And his sign is Gemini, not Virgo.

So you can go back to your lurking astral demons now. ;)
