guitar tweaks

Thanks to Darren Whitmer at Brown Forman Cooperage for the piece of scrap white oak. It came from a bourbon barrel stave destined for either Jack Daniels, Woodford Reserve, or Old Forester. It made the perfect block for my tremolo modification on my newly acquired St. Blues Bluescaster. This is one sweet guitar and I’m in the process of dialing it in. What could be better than a bourbon barrel stave for this project? American white oak!
