Try http://tinyurl.com/ to make extremely long links manageable.

Or you could just use the alternate form for posting URLs in the help tips when you mouse over the URL button in the message editing form.

<left bracket>url=http://whatever<right bracket>URL text<left bracket>/url<right bracket>

<rant>
It's a little more work for you but it keeps everybody else from having to scroll message texts on a logical screen much wider than the physical screen.

You're not the only one Very Happy

I prefer natural finishes to opaque. I like the natural finishes on the Teles in your first link. The grain on the Strat in the second link has been artificially enhanced way too much, IMO.

BTW, I voted for Mary Kaye because I really want to do one myself. Rolling Eyes

Yep, I am with you Ryan. Actually I was am the other vote in the poll for it. I have nothing against a nostalgic burst or a MK finish either but a blueburst would be a cool look and a killer change from the norms we usually turn out here.

I wouldn't mind, except that I don't know of any. Laughing

The closest thing to what I mean is those sparkly Tele bodies on ebay.



Really, instead of CAR and LPB I was thinking more like the Duplicolor Metal Specks red and blue. It's sort of a waste of a nice ash body, but hey.
