Remodelling The Black Strat

Ladies and gentlemen,

Once again, I’ve successfully situated myself in this unhealthy predicament, which I’m very good at: Choosing: which I’m very bad at; obviously.

This is my very first guitar that I got reunited with a couple of days ago. I’ve already took it apart, did some cleaning, but I need to change some rusty parts and while at it, I’ll remodel it.

I’ve made 3 (maybe more) mockups of what I’m planning to change. I thought why not ask my lovely friends here for their opinion. Pick one… please. This is already hard.
Or, what would you do if you had the choice?

Black Strat

New Toy in House

New toy in the house! 😊
So far I’m loving what this controller offers, with a bunch of faders, pots and pads that will make my life a bit easier to record new juicy synth and pad sounds.
It’s highly customizable and not very expensive too.

My Super Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday, my wife organized a surprise party and then there was this birthday cake with some album cover on thanks to Lori. Not sure whose album is that though😋 Thank you to all my friends who were there and thank you all my lovely fans for your cyber wishes, and a special thank you to my wife Nanor, for making this day and the after party (more on that later) a really memorable one. Love you baby.

And since it’s my birthday I decided to gift you guys a super duper birthday deal which is going on right now on the Official store and also on Bandcamp until this weekend.

Guitar Surgery

It’s guitar surgery day.
This is my Ibanez RG3120. It’s getting old, I got it back in 2002. The control knobs and output jack started making crackling sounds lately. (I think somebody lives in there, and scrambles eggs every time I plug in).
Luckily I have a $10 soldering gun which is not cooperating for obvious reasons, and this is probably the second time I ever used a soldering gun, so expect things to go very, very terribly.

Thank You

And to end the year on a high note, I’d like to specially thank you for your outstanding support and love. I have read the countless heartfelt, inspiring and motivational messages from a lot of you, and I am extremely thankful and lucky for being able to make music for you, and to have you as a fan and even more than a fan, a friend.
I hope the new year brings lots of exciting moments to you, full of sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll!
Cheers!
