My apologies for the delay in this...

On Saturday, I finally got around to doing some maintenance on Millie...change of strings, clean the whole guitar, and oil up the fingerboard a bit. Not that big of a deal for most, but it's the first time I ever sat down and did everything myself. I even purchased a precision ruler so I could check string and pickup heights.

Anyway, long story short, I was able to fix two minor issues without having to resort to taking her somewhere else for a setup: the first was a slight buzz on the lower strings (they needed to be raised 2/64th of an inch), and minor intonation problems on two strings. Needless to say, I'm rather pumped that I was able to do it on my own, and didn't need to call someone to fix my mistakes! lol

But you don't care about's some porn of Millie...

Journal History


United States
Greetings & Salutations! My name is Rich, and I'm a Yankee-born-and-bred Southerner in the USA. Although I am no longer in the field, my background and education are in Computer Sciences. I'm a self-taught user of both Photoshop and GIMP, the results of which are in my gallery.

While most of my work has been in picture manipulation for sigs, I do, on occasion, have an artistic moment when creating abstract backgrounds...mostly my later / most recent work.

I used to keep my work on my own website / domain, but decided to move everything to dA when it became counter-productive to maintain. Other than dA, the only other websites that I'm at all active on these days are My Les Paul Forums and Paperback Swap. Yes, I do a lot of reading. LOL
