you kinda don't realise it until the day, which makes it hard to go anywhere :lol: plus i probably exaggerated a bit, it's more than 5 days in a year, and often it's unbearably humid even when the weather is cr@p :lol: ... we've actually had pretty good weather so far this year, this is the second heat-wavey kind of spell. But the humidity makes it unbearable. I actually think it's worse than england in that respect, even when I've been in england in heatwaves much hotter than it ever is here, it's been more bearable than here. :lol:

Yeah, humidity's a big problem in London as well - especially on the Tube, which is absolute torture from May to September (and isn't very pleasant the rest of the year either).  I grew up near the coast in South Wales and don't remember humidity ever being a problem..... although I course I wasn't a moany old git then.

People always go on about some hot countries having a "dry" heat which allegedly isn't so bad.  But I'm not about to find out.   :lol:

:lol:

yeah, if you ask me the humidity here is worse than london. Bear in mind, that's only from the ~3 weeks i've been in London. But it's never that hot here without being unbearably humid.

Looking good- especially the bulbous bit.
I'm sorry, I realise I'm a little late here, but I've never been quite sure which bit is the 'bulbous bit'... Is it the top horn?

got to love the bulbous bit.. roo does!

Here I go, resurrecting this thread again...

Just coming back to the neck-heaviness issue, I've been wondering if it's more down to the trussrod or the actual neck profile?  There's quite a lot more wood in a '59 Roundback than in a Standard Thin. 

I was just looking on the Warmoth forum and apparently the dual-action rod only weighs 1.6 oz more than the vintage rod.  That's not a lot really, especially since it's distributed along the full length of the neck.


(Yes, I am trying to decide between a Vintage Modern and Warmoth Pro neck!  :wink: )

It's probably a combination of the two things Phil.  The neck was certainly noticeably heavier than its replacement.....
