I’ve loved my dot archtop since the day I took it out of the box. A few cosmetic things have annoyed me, but the playability of the guitar is the most important thing to me, and this guitar plays so smoothly.
One of the cosmetic issues I had with the guitar was the knobs. They were orange… or gold… or something… ugly. So I bought some black Gibson knobs and switched them out.
My main concern was that the American knobs wouldn’t fit the metric knobs and that I would need to do some hack to get them to work. However, they fit fine. They were a little tight, but that’s the way they should fit if you ask me.
So, here’s a pick that shows the guitar before and after. It looks much better now with the black knobs. So glad I switched them out!
Also, a year or so ago, I had the stock pickups replaced with 57 Classic humbuckers. The tone from this guitar is incredible!
I’m so glad I made these upgrades, and there are more to come. Next on the upgrade list is Schaller M6 tuners.

I’ve left this site pretty much on auto-pilot for quite a while, which is sad. I pay nearly $100 for hosting each year and I never really put it to use. Right now I have no idea what to put on here because I’m so busy with freelance work that I can’t get around to doing anything here. I’d really like to start posting on what’s going on in my life every day, but I’m going to need to slow down a bit in order to write that kind of stuff on here.
I’ll definitely take the time to update my About page, so if anybody actually comes here looking for me, they can find out all about me.
So if you’re here because you were looking specifically for me, feel free to leave a message.

So at the time of this post, pitchers and catchers report in 38 days! I can hardly wait for baseball to return. I’ll definitely make it to Great American Ballpark this year!
