Happy Birthday, JonPatrickHyde!

Hey, everybody! It's officially @JonPatrickHyde's birthday!!!

Jon, I know you've been a little busy lately, but you were one of my first friends on Vingle, so what kind of person would I be if I didn't wish you a happy birthday?! Thank you so much for forever changing my opinion about cats and sharing all of your cool projects on here. I hope you take your bike out today for a birthday lap of victory. You deserve it!

Here is a bass guitar made for you by a black metal clown!!!

Let's wish Jon a happy birthday!!!

OMG! THANK YOU SO MUCH! This is so awesome! I'm sorry about being absent lately! I'm still getting settled in from my move... I crushed my foot the other day... so no bike riding. and in the mean time I've been building three guitars... a vintage 50 year old Fender Stratocaster and two 1980s Kramer guitars (one is a 5150 EVH and I'm doing the stripped paint job myself). Cats are great... and I just got my official Nikon Pro credentials. so in all its I'm great. I'll be posting a bunch of guitar build stuff and some new photo tutorials soon. Again, thanks so much for this awesome card and for the awesome wishes!

I'm very fortunate to have learned guitar build and tech support from one of the greatest guitar builders in modern history. I play guitar - and I feel that the instrument itself is a tool. So let's look at it this way... a Race car driver typically knows every bolt in their car and many are hands on in the maintenance of their car so musicians who don't know how to maintain their instruments are a mystery to me. I love working on guitars and only started building them a couple of years ago. I'm getting closer and closer to buying my own shop tools and making then from the ground up. It's all so fascinating to me - and the end result is something that you can make music with.

That vintage Strat already sounds beautiful. I can't wait to see the pictures!!! Also.. BOOOOO about the foot. Do you know how long it's going to take to get all healed up, or are you playing it by ear?
