    Scalloped necks are nice... There was a guy in my area recently selling a Warmoth birds-eye maple scalloped neck for $75.. Brand new..

    I'm now kicking myself of course for not buying it. It would've suited my Tele perfectly.

    After I played my first scalloped neck guitar I have been wanting one for awhile, so as of right now I'm just doing my strat and after awhile going to hit it up for my Tele(partscaser.)

    Awesome.. What kind of file are you using to do the job? Just a typical, round wood file?

    I'm using a standard 1/4" file and increasing the size as I move up the frets to the larger size. After I finished filing the fret I sand it starting from 200 grit sandpaper up to 800 for a nice smooth finish then use tung oil to apply the finish coat. I think you could also use a dremel and the sandpaper tool thingy for them for the larger frets.

    Edit: Here is the site I got some of the info for what I was doing. Project Guitar :: How to Scallop a guitar neck

    picked up [PROTOTYPE] for the PS3 a couple days ago.

    i am very impressed with this game, plays a bit like a spiderman game in terms of the freedom of movement in a large city. you get to jump and glide from place to place, and no drop, no matter how high can kill you - as a matter of fact, dropping from very high places results in an amazingly satisfying impact that can result in nearby cars and people being bounced up off of the rippling pavement.
    the sense of power in the main character is fantastic, body weaponry is nicely rendered and there are a nice variety of upgrades and combos. the mechanic of consuming others for thier memories, skills, health and physical apperance is also really nice - if a bit brutal.

    technically, the game is solid, i see very little pop up, there are an amazing number of people and cars on the streets at any given time with no slow down. models for people and cars could be a bit more varied, but it's not too annoying. sounds and the soundtrack are very nice, as is the voice acting. the whole game has a nice dark feel to it. there is some of the standard collection mechanic, though the collectables give you hints or experience, and it doesn't take you too far out of the game.

    Thanks for the review eric. I've been looking into the game because I keep hearing really good things about it from friends. I try not to go by critic reviews too much.
    The next game I'm going to pick up is either going to be Prototype or inFamous. Maybe both, if I can plan my finances right.

    i asked one of the guys at a used store here about the two games, and they said both prototype and infamous were good, but the guy said if he could only buy one, he'd go with prototype. POTM also gave it a good review.
    i'm definitely considering infamous too, but when i saw target had prototype for only 50 bucks rather than 60, it helped make up my mind for me.

    Playing Fallout 3 when I'm not programming, playing it for the pc so got a ton of mods such as one called RTS, which allows you to create and run/manage your own town.

    I picked up another copy of Rainbow Six: Vegas the other day. I was nickin' to play it so I scored a used copy for $15.

    This game rocks, as do most of the R6/Ghost Recon series games.

    I picked up Bionic Commando and Metal Gear Solid 4 for the PS3 last week. MGS4 was only $30 brand new and BC was only $20 brand new. BC hasn't been selling really well so I figured it would be a fun game worth the twenty bucks.

    My big complaint for BC was the lack of freedom, because it wants you to believe you have a lot of it; being able to swing everywhere. However a lot of times you'll run into a "radiated" area which will kill you. I would have been much happier if they would have just put up an invisible wall to show you the game boundaries. My point for that is because you can't save at any point in the game, you have to get to a checkpoint. Other than that it is pretty fun, a lot of trophies to go and collect also. I still think it was worth the $20 and I haven't even played online yet. I think the multiplayer LAN would be fun though

    MGS4 is just plain great. I wanted the price to drop before I picked it up since I just got my PS3 this past January. It's a fantastic game and I recommend it to anyone out there.

    Other than those and the occasional beat-down in Socom Confrontation, that's what I've been playing lately.

    yeah MGS4 is the best game I have ever played hints why I choose this username. But It cost to much to get my PS3 fixed so Im thinking of just buying a new one.
