    What are your absolute essentials?

    These days just a bluesbreaker type drive, a strobe tuner and an amp with onboard spring reverb. The variety comes from switching guitars with different pickup and wood combos.

    huge frets and tone?

    nickel frets shouldn't really impact the tone regardless of their size. jumbo stainless frets on the other hand will definitely add a slight metallic clang

    Your pedal choice for sonic sweetening / always on / “more”

    Sarno Black Box is literally always on. Mythical Overdrive is always on like 90% of the time.

    Neck size/carve - how flexible are you?

    Back of the neck carve isn't that material of a spec. A bit overrated, much like nut width. Fret size, string spacing at the bridge and overall board radius i have found to have the most impact on whether a guitar feels good to play or not.

    Kinman pickups

    FWIW I'm ordering pickups and harnesses for two guitars directly right now and have had a great experience so far. Joe has followed up with several questions and clearly seems to want to get the order right. Nothing but helpful and friendly. I was told two weeks from order so I'll try and...

    Best $200 you've ever spent on gear

    Bought a used Jule-modded v1 Night train head for $200 even. Thing is incredible. New the souped up Mythical Overdrive is just under $200. Also incredible, especially together with the Vox.

    Partscasters vs branded

    I’m building my first partscaster. It’s a Fender MIM Mahogany strat with a swimming pool route and a 6 screw trem. Came stock with 3 humbuckers wired to a 5 way switch like a standard strat. So far, I’ve replaced the neck with a warmoth neck and locking tuners, replaced the neck and bridge...

    Re-amping and amp/cab impedance mismatch

    Recently picked up a Jule-modded Night Train 15w v1, which sounds great on its own, but even better into my 100w Fryette Power Station to a Glaswerks 112TH cab with a EVM-12L clone. Thing is, considerable A-B testing so far has led me to believe that the Vox sounds better using the 16ohm tap...

    New Fender line: American Professional II

    I hate those 2 point trems with the narrow gibson style spacing. It's getting harder and harder to find fenders with the comfy vintage spacing that made them uniquely feel like a fender in the first place.

    Rewiring 4th position on a Strat to N/M series instead of parallel

    Anybody have a wiring diagram on how to do this? Would I have to replace or install any parts if I'm fine losing the n/m parallel sound? Id rather have a beefy neck humbucker-ish lead tone (but don't want to get rid of my single coil straight neck and middle tones) than the 4th position quack...
