    G&L Legacy - help please!

    Thanks for all your help. The seller and I are going to chat tomorrow and come up with a solution. He is the original owner so I think we just have a badly fitted guitar.

    G&L Legacy - help please!

    The neck has no overhang and I believe only the older Legacy models were three bolt. I wonder if the body could be a Tribute body. I do have the guitar’s certificate and everything seems to match. So when the neck was shimmed 0.02” it caused the low E string to intonate so that it’s saddle was...

    G&L Legacy - help please!

    OK...sorry for the delay...little spare time. - Removed shims - Lowered the bridge pivot posts all the way then raised them a quarter turn each just to back them off from the felt washers a bit - Adjusted saddle heights about 2.5 full turns across the board as a starting point...height looks...

    G&L Legacy - help please!

    Yes, definitely understand what correct intonation should look like, which is why I noted the position of the saddles. I've never seen a guitar intonate like this before. And I did put on a new set of strings. No Micro-tilt adjustment on this guitar. I guess I've gotten lucky and always had...

    G&L Legacy - help please!

    Yes, it does. Seems legit to me.

    G&L Legacy - help please!

    Ok - First off, I got rid of the noise. Someone had put copper shielding tape on the backside of the pickguard, soldered a wire to it and that wire was wrapped around one of the pickup selector screws. I just removed the wire and that did the trick. First thing I did was cut two playing cards...

    G&L Legacy - help please!

    It is at 2/16...it was at 3/16”. Do you agree that playing cards make good shims? What have you used? If it were a bad connection, wouldn’t the noise be consistent and not correlate with the volume of the string? The quieter you pick, the quieter the noise is...and vice versa. I have not...

    G&L Legacy - help please!

    Originally the bridge height was set to 3/16”, but G&L said that was an older spec, and that this one should be at 2/16” (at 3/16” the height of the action was ridiculous). I understand what shimming the neck pocket will do, but I don’t like the idea. From what I understand the necks and...

    G&L Legacy - help please!

    I recently purchased a 2011 USA Legacy in mint condition. I want to love this guitar but there are some issues. I’ve already spent some time on the G&L forum but am getting little traction because the site just isn’t that busy (also I posted in the correct forum instead of the “general” forum...

    Gotten myself into an overdrive pickle...

    Good posts. I plugged into the Marvel 3 for just a sec this morning at a very low volume and holy smokes...this thing is awesome and definitely has a sound none of the other pedals can duplicate. I can't wait to delve more into it. One if get coolest things about it is that it has a lot if...

    First Marshall (DSL40C)

    I personally have not had good luck with greenbacks in an open back 112 cab...have you? They just sounded flubby when I tried them. Now, in a closed-back cab they are great!

    Gotten myself into an overdrive pickle...

    And I bet this is an all-too-common phenomenon here on TGP. I'll cut right to the lesson: it's probably better to be satisfied with what's already working "well enough" than to burden oneself with the anxiety of finding "the perfect tone" (which doesn't exist...lol). The ridiculous amount of...

    Strange "Whine" from Bogner Ecstasy Blue Pedal??

    Battery worked fine...no whine. Still not the quietest pedal ever but not too bad. Strangest thing...I swapped to a different plug with the One Spot and no whine either.

    Strange "Whine" from Bogner Ecstasy Blue Pedal??

    Oh that's terrific. That is something I never expected to hear regarding Bogner. But I guess one should never buy into the self-projected image of a company (marketing). I'll contact them to see what they say. Maybe I'll get lucky and they'll help. Can't help but think that the seller...

    Strange "Whine" from Bogner Ecstasy Blue Pedal??

    I just got a used Ecstasy Blue pedal in the mail. Physically it's in excellent condition. I've already found a couple of great sounds in it too. But, when I switch to the variac mode, it introduces a significant high-pitched whine or squeal to the signal that is not present in any other mode...

    Tell me more about the Mojo Hand Rook.

    Hi...I know this is a late post here, but I just brought this pedal home. Picked up one in near mint condition from a nice music store in NOVA. Anyway, I don't find the Rook side of the Royale to get "well over" unity gain. Running into a fairly clean amp with the toggle in the upper...

    How does the Boost side of the Rook Royale Compare to the Exotic EP Booster?

    Both are based off the Echoplex preamp, and I have been interested in the RR for awhile now. However, I just borrowed my fiend's Xotic EP booster and LOVE what it does to my dirty channel. Does the RR boost side sound nearly identical to the Xotic??

    Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail Delay on the Way

    It breaks up very quickly, which I like, as such I recommend putting both delays in the loop…why would it's placement in the loop preclude it from taking residence on the board??

    What sounds you using that nobody else is using?

    I would tell you but then I'd have to kill you.

    What can the Whammy V do that the Pitchfork can't?

    In the end the Pitchfork will cost more when paired with an expression pedal, but the fact that you CAN blend the dry signal in is a winner for me. Does the Whammy still win? I think I pretty much only care about octaves and non-blended whammy stuff. But you never know what you'll be into...

    What's in expression pedal?

    Why should I pay $80-120+ for an expression pedal when the Moog is $40+?? Oh…heh heh…also, can I mod my L6 exp to RST? They come ST.

    If not Timeline then what delay?

    WHAT are you looking for in a delay? To me, the E2D is worth the price of admission even if you only use straight delay sounds. The regular delay with no modulation, filtering, etc just sounds freakin GREAT! A couple buddies of mine have Flashbacks and my E2D laughs in their faces!

    Help me decide between two used Teles

    Yeah they are both CL finds…quite a distance from each other or I would just would have tested them both out in person without posting. But I suppose I will take this advice and go treasure hunting. :D

    Why can't Marshal just build what we want? A Class 15

    Couldn't have said it better myself. Except I prefer orange clean on the JVM. ;)
