re: Is it beneficial to pay more each month on your mortgage payment? - Cold Cous Cous
Set aside all the discussion of high interest rates and low interest rates. Two things from your post jump out at me - one, that you didn't have 20% to put down, and two, that you only expect to live there for five years. Those facts tell me that it's better for you to stay liquid; ie, keep as muc...

re: Fret Level in NO area? - Cold Cous Cous

If the old neck fetches $75 that ends up being cheaper than a refret. But this is my favorite neck I've ever played, so I'd like to keep it going a while ...

Fret Level in NO area? - Cold Cous Cous
Who are the go-to guys for a fret level in New Orleans? I have a 15 year old tele with divots all over the fretboard. I've always done my own setups and adjustments but don't think I'm ready to try a fret level, especially since this has the little frets so there's not much to work with. I bu...
