Hey Eric -

Eric is no joke y'all - he's filled in for us twice now when mkaufman was unavailable. Being a 'jerry guy' eric does an excellent job on rhythm. We trade off leads here and there and he's top notch there as well. Has a masters in jazz arrangements & composition and it shows.

Here's a clip of High Heeled Sneakers from our last gig where we brought eric in. He rips it up nicely after the keys lead.

He's also looking for some wiring help in this thread if anyone can lend him a hand

Whats up! I got a minor in Jazz comp./studies. I like the diagram on waldo's site for Rosebud since it is a version he has held and studied up close and the wiring schematic IS confirmed. I rigged up my les paul to handle the 3 humbuckers and the diagram was spot on.

I am going to use the tiger wiring going to radio shack today I had a nasty Buzz in this guys basement the other night every guitar we plugged in had it too but still I am rewiring today. the Humbuckers should be quiet right ?
as far as school I went to GIT spent a ton of time with TiM Bogart (Vanilla Fudge, Bobby and The Midnights, Cactus) as well as Scott Henderson and Kieth Wyatt I studied at William Patterson Univesity and have a BFA in Music and most of my M.M. in Jazz Composition and Arranging from Five Towns College here's a clip this is the Current rig not running at full capcity though because of the afformentioned Buzz the other night and it's a new band I just started playing with http://www.osejams.com/10scarlet.mp3 you can also learn more about me at http://www.osejams.com If you guys know anyone affordable that does this type of wiring mod in NY tri-state area let me know too.. I also have acoustic clips here http://www.youtube.com/osejams

Guitar update: I got the front glued on and hollowed out a small section then glued the back on last night I should cut the basic shape tomorrow and hopefully route pickups this week then I have to take a bunch of time shape it then make and carve the neck. I'll post some pics tomorrow

Thanks for all the help I am going to take a wack at something similar to tiger wiring today I have no CB1 or any loop etc so I am going to leave that out

you mention you play "jerry style" guitar. i have played guitar for many years yet remain only an "OK" player. i am familiar with some theory and play very mechanically since my ears are less than i would like.
I would appreciate any specific tips you may have on playing "Jerry style" .

for me any step in that direction would be sort of a holy grail.
