  • Hi,I'm not expert, but I've been in your shoes with an older computer before. In your case, you're far better off building a new computer from scratch.If you want to keep your current rig, you'll need to change out your motherboard/cpu/ram and probably power supply. For better performance, you'll probably want a newer/bigger/faster hard drive (I recommend a solid state drive, or at least a 7200 rpm hard drive). You'll probably need a new PSU to power a more powerful graphics card (several gigabites). With all this, the only thing that you have stock is your case--which would probably be better replaced, since cases gave gotten much better than 10 years ago.If you really wanted to keep as much things stock as possible, I'd recommend only using your hard drive and porting it to a new sy…

If you want to be relatively less spendy, try buying a used PC off craigslist with parts from the last few years.Good luck!

  • Ah, I didn't mean to be harsh. Sorry.Fair enough, regarding the neck angle portion.If you've never used a handstruck rasp, you don't know what you're missing out. I have a Shinto rasp too...it's a good starter tool for rough removal. If you ever get a chance to try an Auriou, Lioger, Gramercy (or Pechar) rasp--do so! If you're around SF, you're welcome to try mine.

    A few comments:1. I don't think "Greatest... Ever" should really be used in your title (just a personal thing). I known many "greatest"-- Michihiro Matsuda, greatest luthier; Dr. Carl Misch, greatest dental implant surgeon/prosthedontist, etc, etc...none of these guys call themselves "greatest." IMHO, only hacks are full of themselves.2. Excellent instructible on the build process3. Some things to would have been nice to see: shielding; setting action via neck angle.4. All in all, a pretty nice job on the build and guitar.5. You may want to splurge and get a hand-struck rasp. Uno Pechar makes my favorites.
