    I'm currently listening to "How Could Hell Be Any Worse" by Bad Religion. What do you think about that album?

    Who are the bands and musicians who have been most influential in your own development as a musician?

    Why is it that you answered t4d's question "tell us one thing that is not true today but that is likely to be true about you in 5 years but that you hope to avoid?" with 'Death'?

    The two Teles are really neck in neck, can't really pick a favourite. I guess the Fender is a bit more versatile in the tones it can coax but the Squier having the Phat Cat is heavier and crunchier under the same amount of gain, and has a couple nice clean tones, but not as great as the Fender in that department. The necks are the same shape but the Fender is a tad thicker, both feel great though. Both have alder bodies, the Squier being a bit lighter, no more than a pound lighter though. In terms of craftsmanship the '90s Korean Squier (Standard series) seems on par with the '04 MIM Fender.
    all maple? shame it needed so much work, the photo's cool

    interesting re the teles; have you considered putting the fender neck on the squier?

    The same thing I think about EVERY other Bad Religion album; "MAN THIS %$*#@!^ ROCKS!!"

    Who are the bands and musicians who have been most influential in your own development as a musician?
    The biggest is probably The Clash. I've been listening to them as far back as I have memories, and the lyrics speak to me while the music pleases my ears. Joe Strummer is also a big influence on me picking up a Telecaster, although Hefe from NOFX, The Specials, Strza of Leftover Crack, East bay Ray of Dead Kennedys, Tragically Hip, and Gang of Four all played a part in that too.

    Other bands/artists who have influenced my playing and/or gear tastes are Anti-Flag, The Ramones, Bad Religion, Mescaleros, The Jam, Bouncing Souls, Good Riddance, Against Me! Operation Ivy, Sublime, Nirvana, Rancid, Rage Against The Machine, Nine Inch Nails, Motorhead, Foo Fighters, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Robert Johnson, Johnny Cash, Simon & Garfunkel, Cat Stevens, and Woodie Guthrie....

    Why is it that you answered t4d's question "tell us one thing that is not true today but that is likely to be true about you in 5 years but that you hope to avoid?" with 'Death'?
    5 years from now will be 2014. It's also not true today that I'm dead and it's something I'd like to avoid but with all the possible ways to die in this world and my goals on affecting society it could be likely to happen.

    Nah, I like them each how they are now, no need to swap necks.

    It would be a honey blonde blackguard Telecaster with an ash body with a shallow waist contour. All maple 1 piece neck, thick C shape. SD 1/4 lb Tele bridge pickup with a Phat Cat neck pickup and 4-way Tele switch. bridge would be vintage with compensated brass saddles and control plate would be reversed. Bone nut and locking tuners.

    I noticed you have a sunburst by the name of Sunny Jim. Is this partly based on Keith Richards "Sonny" 1974 sunburst tele?

    Also, If you had to choose between a relic telecaster, would you choose Keith Richards "Micawber" or Springsteen "Tele-Esquire"?

    Nope, I just have a friend who's mom will call people Sonny or Sonny Jim and one time after being called such I thought it'd make a good name. I spell it Sunny as a pun on it being Sunburst.

    Also, If you had to choose between a relic telecaster, would you choose Keith Richards "Micawber" or Springsteen "Tele-Esquire"?
    Good question. If I chose Micawber could it have the Low E pole piece put back in it's pickups and strung with all 6 strings? If so I'd take Micawber as it has a humbucker in the neck. If I had to take either guitar "as-is" and leave it as such, I'd take the Tele-Esquire.

    If there's one thing that you could say to one person (alive or dead) with no consiquenses, what would it be?

    You've graduated school, do you have any plans to get formal training (college, vo tech)?

    Tricky question, but a good one. I would tell Jacque Fresco (living, age: 93) that I love his designs and hope to help bring about and live in a resource-based economy.

    I am going to apply to college this winter to start next year. I want to take audio production/engineering and work either at a studio or a live venue. The colleges I'm looking to apply to all teach studio production/engineering, mastering, scoring sound to film, and live sound.

    Operation Ivy. I like ALL of their songs, whereas Rancid I like MOST of their songs (granted Rancid has put out more albums).

    That's even harder. I was raised on both but I do listen to the Specials a bit more than the Beat, so The Specials.

    do you think no doubt is trying really hard to be blondie?[/QUOTE]

    No doubt. I used to have respect for them until Gwen broke up the band to put out horrible pop music for 10 year olds. They could never be (like) Blondie though.
