Go on gear4music.com they have some really cheap PA/ monitor/ mic'n systems, i dont know about the USA, but i'd say gear4music probably has some of the cheapest PA systems in the uk, really good for new bands.
stick 4 toothpicks in, like around the edges, glue them in and then let it dry and just screw the screw back in, it'll be pretty tight but it'll save you from having to drill and the screw will grip onto the toothpicks that line the outside of the hole.
I think taping the fret's would actaully be the the best way, if you tape them up like your going to do a scallop on the neck, but make it really tight up against the fret and really neat. It'd be more effort before coating it, but it'd be way easier, becuase if you're scraping the frets after you could damage them or even worse rub some of the clearcoat off the maple.
Ok fair enough, they didnt stop the fighting, most people these days, myself included wouldnt try to get in between them.
But some one could have easily ran around the corner or out of view and dialled 911 as soon as they saw the fight, people nowadays are just lazy pathetic morons who value there free time over someone elses life.
*there are people out there who would help, but obvisiously in this situation, all those people decided that there time was more important than this mans life*
Um i think since we are in the 3rd dimension we can only see objects as 2D, hence from 1 side or the front etc, were as a person or object in the 4th dimension can see an object in the 3rd dimesion as a whole, as in front/ back/ top/ bottom all at once...
To be honest, that kind of thinking doesnt really benefit anybody.. pfft waste of time.
It's all about being able to concentrate your eyes seperatley for the two pictures, once your left and right eye are looking at there respective images when you go cross eyed your eyes see both images layerd ontop of each other and brain is tricked into thinking the image has depth.
Ok so what you will want to work out is the neck angle (should be under 3degrees), this depends on the hieght of the bridge your using.
For the angled headstock you should make it roughtly 11 to 14 degrees (13 is most common) if your going to angle the headstock by cutting the end and angling it. If it's a one piece (whole neck is made from one piece of wood) it should be about 10 degrees.
You'll need to take into account nut height, bridge height, neck angle, fret height in order to allow your guitar to have the best intonation possible.
To make it stay in tune, you could purchase a graphite or roller nut with locking tuners.
