Stones guitarist Richards joining Depp on Pirates set: Johnny Depp has persuaded Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards to play a cameo role in the sequels to "Pirates of the Caribbean".
Plenty of other blogs have recently been featuring Crazy J, guitar-playing robotic creation of the Georgia Institute of Technology. I feel it's time to remind you all of some previous guitar-robots that I've listed on this blog, namely GuitarBot (watch the videos of that thing in action - it's quite impressive) and the similarly-named but altogether more scary GTRBOT of Captured by Robots.

The return of Frankie 2I was never happy with this project as it was. The left-handed neck wasn't really working for me and the roller nut I'd installed made the action too high at the head end of the neck. Tonight, I replaced the neck for a more ordinary Stratocaster neck - a Squier Strat neck with 22-fret rosewood fingerbaord. I also removed the tremolo bridge, the springs, etc, and have installed one of these fab Hot Rod hardtail bridges from Custom Shop Parts. It now plays beautifully!
As for the parts that I removed, I may keep them for a future project or else I might have a clear out and sell them on eBay.
