SailingI'm not really sure when I started sailing. It seems like I got my sailing merit badge, but there weren't that many opportunities to sail where I grew up in the mountains of Georgia. In graduate school, I crewed for friends, and when I lived in California, I crewed on a J/24 racing team. Sailing in the SF Bay is intense, and I prefer the more genteel conditions of the Chesapeake.
When I lived in California, I built a Telecaster from scratch with the
help of the
Product Realization Lab
at Stanford. Almost all of the
materials came from Stewart-MacDonald.
Here are some black and whites of the guitar:
- Body: Single piece of alder with a book-matched quilted maple front
- Two-piece neck made from bird's-eye maple
- Natural finish with lots of lacquer coats
- 22 fret neck with black inlays and side dots
- Fender Lace Sensors
- Brushed Chrome Sperzel Locking Tuners
- Double-expanding truss rod
- Graphite nut
- All chrome hardware (knobs, bridge, etc.)
