A few years ago, when my Tele started crackling and popping, someone here suggested rubbing a dryer anti-static sheet over my strings. It worked then, and I remembered it when the Tele started crackling again today.

Just an example of the great practical advice I've gotten on this forum. So cheers to allow of you who have taken the time to give me tips. I've been on here nine years,and I can't remember ever being steered wrong.
