Hey man,
just take a break. No harm in that.
I do it quite often, always my fretting wrist. It's a stamina thing.
You are just playing more than you are used to, and probably more intense.

Your lucky it was a hollow core door!
At least the damage incurred costs less than what it could have been
if your door was solid. New headstock or neck probably isn't in the budget

hey! While your gutting your squier, you should do some shielding to the inside to prevent excess hum and interference. This is a great step by step way of affordably shielding a squier, and in your case it won't be too much extra work, but it may reveal a much better result! Cheers http://www.guita...

Hey man, I've got the same problem, but it isn't as severe sounding as yours... yet. You can give the switch contact cleaner and fix the problem, but it could only give you as much as a year before it acts up again. The switch is losing contact due to oxidization or dirt / smoke/ ect. So I'd look in...

I bought a Violin a few years ago beause I thought it would make me a more precise guitarist. I do think there is a large romanticism about the instrument, and it would make me happy to play violin when I become old. But I found it was incredibly difficult and caused severe pain. So I stopped. I don...

I've got the AD30VT and it is alright. I've never had a problem with the reliability, and it's loud enough for a club. But as mentioned, you do have to tweak if you want to get a perfectly clean tone, otherwise it's got some great sounds. You'll have to get a solo boost pedal however. I has really o...

Hey, I just want to suggest that before you pour the hours upon hours of theory into your head, remember to get your right hand rythm playing into high gear as well. great Jazz is always built on great rythm.
