    Blues jr question

    I did a very affordable "Blackface mod" and put the C.Rex in mine...every time I bring to jam or small gig, at least one person offers to buy it from me for waaay more than I spent. No s**t...it's weird! My wife and I have an ongoing joke about it now.

    Robben Ford & Little Walter Amps

    Ford sounds like Ford regardless. I've seen him many times...Boogie, Deluxe Rev, Twin, Evil Twin, Super Rev, Dumble...maybe others. He sounded the same every time...AMAZING!

    2012 ES-339 - yay or nay?

    I really liked mine BUT...be aware...if you like to play very high up on the neck, the space between the body horn and next is very tight. There were certain things that I had to play around cuz my hand wouldn't fit. Other than I...loved it.

    Tele Wiring...bad pot?

    Hey All, Wiring a Tele, nothing fancy...3-way....033...that's it. Sounds great...but...volume control does nothing. It's just sitting there. Give it a spin and...zip...full volume only. Here's the anomaly that may be diagnostic (to a smart person...not to me)...the jack hot is supposed to go...

    Strat Bushing Help Please

    That is the issue...1/4 ID...these Gotohs have a post diameter bigger than that. I went ahead and shimmed the included bushings. Came out fine. It's just aggravating that it's such a PITA to find a part that must be a common need.

    Strat volume pot

    Short answer...yes...you can. I'd definitely not use a cheap Alpha, but if you have another CTS or Bourns lying around of the value you want...yup...use it. I agree...keep stuff out of landfills whenever possible...cheap or not!

    Strat Bushing Help Please

    I am installing Gotoh vintage style tuners on a HWY Strat neck with stock Fender Pings. The Gotoh bushings...too small for the peg holes. I tried a set of conversion bushings...too big. I have no issues reaming, but...ID is too small for the Gotoh posts. So...other than shimming the Gotoh...

    TonePros Klusons: Which bushings for 2010 335?

    I prefer the look and more open tone...and yes...I can hear it. Have plenty of guitars with both types and others...I prefer Klusons on Gibsons. Anyway...thanks for the bushing advice. Maybe I'll get them from a place that takes returns. They aren't expensive...maybe just get a bunch.

    New Ken Talve release...Henderson/Landau fans

    I love Ken's playing and writing, and his last release, "Out of the Blue" is badass! His new one, "Bad Barista" is too. Steve Hunt and Chad Wackerman are awesome on it as well. If you dig Scott Henderson, Mike Landau, and Alan...you will probably love this!

    Reverb sellers who ignore offers through the 24 hour limit...

    I haven't read all 22 pages of this...I've had lowball offers from folks who will say that they understand that the offer is low, but it's what they have (I've done that myself). I'm cool with it, and I've even sold low to a few when I could afford it. What I don't dig (this is more common on...

    How many of you long time guitarists still eff up a string change on occasion?

    If you count almost always as "occasionally," then yup. I have a spacial/sequential learning disability, so...I'm used to it. Ironically, it's why I can't sight read. I don't like quitting, so I've always had to adapt to situations. My improvisational mind is pretty ok cuz of that (or I'm...
