    String to string volume w/ Lace Gold's....

    Lately I've noticed a drop in my high E output, across all three pups... swapped out the string saddle, no change. New nut about 6 months ago; action high enough to play slide and finger style. Thoughts? Thanks all....

    Framus / L6S pup question....

    Decades ago I was given a Framus electric, two pups, solid covers (no exposed polepieces), potted. I was able to get a schem/ wiring diagram from Bill Lawrence....and he referenced in an article somewhere about trying this out on the L6S... three conductors and a shield from each, feeding a 6...

    Repair, or replace?

    Opinions, please. 1965 Jazzmaster bridge pup. What does rewinding the original pup do to the value of the guitar, (vs installing a Lollar, or some other quality replacement...), and including the original in the sale? Thanks....

    EH B9 thoughts?

    Happy Thanksgiving all....I recently found this pedal, I know it's been around for a bit, and have watched two or three video reviews. I have NOT seen much in the way of LEAD playing, only chording...does anyone have any experience with it as relates to the bending of notes, and sustain, as in...

    So, heat...

    5e3 build, a little bigger cab (5e5 pro), and after the build, the burn in. Chassis (Weber chrome, from years ago), after running 4 hours, very nearly too hot to hold your fingertips on for more than a few moments. Thoughts?

    Click track help...

    A friend of mine has a duo, which plays to a pre-recorded drum track. The "stick count" that precedes each song is audible to the audience through the PA, and he would prefer it was not. It's part of the recording, so he can't cut it. Does a circuit exist (that might be simply a resistor in...

    Truss rod troubles...

    Evening folks, a question, please...my son picked up an Indonesian- built tele, the "Designed and Backed By Fender" labeled one...used, maple neck. The neck had a bad bow, which was corrected by a truss rod adjustment. Trouble is, it holds for a few days, and then the bow is back. Bad rod? Or am...

    Alembic f-2b

    Thinking of building one for a friend, and it seems to get the components into a single space rack mount, Alembic used a very small power transformer and a voltage doubler arrangement. If I DON'T have a size limitation, does anyone see any reason not to use just an off the shelf P/T (with...

    Ever played a show and felt...nothing?

    I just had the chance to play a blues fest in Ohio, nice site, major headliners each night. A friend called and asked me to play a bit, and we wound up onstage as an opener. It really was fun, but...I walked off at the end of our set feeling like...I had missed something. Just me?

    Using both output jacks...

    Forgive a beginner's question, but the Yamaha emx212 board I'm using has a 1/4" and a speakon for each output bay. To use it to drive foh and monitors, I need to connect the pair of mains to one side, and the monitors to the other. The problem is that the foh cabs I have only have a single 1/4"...

    Any thoughts about Eastwood guitars?

    I've looked at the ads for years, just not in the GAS mode, but I picked up a used Strormbird this weekend. Non-reverse Firebird-style Basswood body, maple set neck w/ rosewood board, the pair of P90's were replaced by the previous owner with a pair of mini-humbuckers...I moved the upper strap...

    SRV/MTV Riverboat show...

    Just in case I missed it, has the video of the Fab T-Birds opening for SRV on one of the New Orleans's riverboats ever been released? I saw it when MTV released it back in the day, but is it available now? Muchos gracias....

    AB763 Lite build...

    Starting a single channel ab763 deluxe lite build this week, vmtb, no t or v. Chassis is an 80's Peavey keyboard amp, with the same depth/ front angle, and the length was ok with a bit cut off. Cheap, but pine, Fender cab and road case from the net. I'm thinking either a single 12", or, given...

    Direct Box question...

    Never had need till now, and just a general glance at a large online retailer shows pricing ranging from $19.95 to several hundreds. For a simple way to get the acoustic guitar into the PA, why the huge range in cost? Is there really a difference between a $20 di and a $100 one? I just need a...

    Les Paul Headstock Repair Advice-

    Good morning all- my son was given an 80's Les Paul, which, at one time, had the headstock broken off. Worse, the previous owner tried to repair it himself, using what he says was an epoxy. The headstock is literally being held on by the binding at this point. He has asked everyone in our area...

    Re-capping a Silver face Twin...

    ...and I'm having trouble finding filter caps. The usual sources have the usual brands, rated at 500 vdc, but the original are 525, and with the higher wall voltages today, I'm a little concerned. So, what are you using, and where are you buying them? Thanks-
