    I have served 2 full terms as DGT club president and cannot run again...

    Who will run for this office?

    I'm ineligible, being DGT-less.

    What are the requirements to fullfil this office, @BostonGuitar? Perhaps @JoJo would be a honorable successor.

    I read an article over on Buzzfeed that said millennial voters are more interested in progressive metal candidates. It seems they don't really relate enough with the conservative and alt right-handed DGT platform and it's antiquated views on corporate down-tuning.

    I'm sure that's not true. Somebody just tampered with your computer mic.

    Sorry, but that is a lifetime position. The only way out is death.

    Seems like the Vice President is only real choice we have....makes the most sense.

    I heard this was only true while dwelling in the basement. in the wild, the opposite is true.

    Since you did not say "I will not seek, nor will I accept my party's nomination" you are stuck with it. I second your renomination.

    :p

    Too much honour, especially as my DGT - as much as I love her - is heavily modded (pups and electronics). Given that and looking at my record here as an occasional visitor, I would not make a good Vice President...

    DGT pickups out, original potentiometers and wiring completely out.

    Bare Knuckle Abraxas Set in, three new push-pull pots in (individual coil-splits on the volumes and an out-of-phase switch for the bridge pickup on the master tone), on the way also swapped positions of bridge and neck volume potentiometers.
    Finally, experimented a bit with the resistances on the coil splits (adapted to the different DC resistances of the splittable Abraxas pickups) and put a Bare Knuckle PIO tone cap in, while omitting the treble bleed cap in favour of a 50s wiring (also after quite a bit of experimentation, but being an experimental physicist by education, that's quite all right).

    Finally, faux bone tuner buttons switched to chrome ones.

    Now, she's finally perfect for me: funk, folk, blues, classic rock, it's all in there, but in a more well-mannered way than before :cool:

    Thus: no regrets at all for the sacrilege ;)
