    Gretsch mini humbucker question

    I had a pro jet with those pickups years ago. P90s drop right in and they make covers for gibson mini hums that fit p90 routes as well. I wouldn’t go to the trouble to custom fit something to those covers. You could probably fit filtertons as well but might have to get creative with mounting.

    Bands or artists that say who they are in a song.

    I wonder if this one counts since it’s a cover of Donovans song? :)

    Who was the first guitarist to put a humbucker in a Strat?

    Wayne has been mentioned a few times. He did in 1967. https://amp.theguardian.com/books/2018/aug/06/the-hard-stuff-dope-crime-mc5-wayne-kramer-memoir-review

    Recommend me a new bridge for my Bigsby Telecaster

    That is a jaguar bridge but they are all interchangeable. Mustangs have fat saddles without individual height screws that people like better than those as it’s more mass & less fiddly. I do like your bridge since you can adjust string spacing. I have the same one on a mustang that I modded to...

    Does anybody know what happened to Lovepedal?

    Well this is the danger when a company mixes the person(ality) and the business. There are people here that mailed in pedals to be repaired and have been ghosted and they absolutely should have an answer or be returned regardless of personal woes. You can’t have it both ways.

    Same riff, 4 different distortion boxes. You be the judge.

    I also liked 2 the least and wasn’t surprised it was the ZW! My favorite od pedal is the mxr gtod which is the same as the ZW on a different internal dip switch setting. I tried it on the ZW side and did not like at all. If you take yours apart and drop the board you’ll see the switch at top...

    If Brazilian fretboards were cheaper and more readily available- would you prefer it over....

    Yep! I recently got a 1960 Silvertone with a nice looking Brazilian board and bridge saddle. This should end the argument that there was something special or exotic about it at the time as silvertones and danelectros were made of the cheapest possible components.

    How many screws should a bolt-on neck attachment use?

    Lots of supro/valco/national resoglass guitars were 1 bolt. They look like 2 with the silver covers but iirc the other is neck tilt. I had the jb hutto/jack white resoglass years ago and it was 1 bolt. My silvertone is 2 bolt. Never an issue.

    Early 70s Sg Special, help needed

    I have that exact guitar ~73 Sg special. Those are minihums with plastic covers - not tarbacks. Mine were extremely weak and shrill. Both measured in 5k range. Dumped them on ebay and put in a pair of hotter a5 budget replacements from ebay. Sounds amazing. Don’t bother changing pots/caps unless...

    And its over... Kiesel - an in-depth look at build quality (* pics added * ) - MFG response

    Understandable that the order would be non-returnable but surely you have a warranty issue with the truss rod & tuner issues. What did Kiesel say when you contacted them about correcting?

    Cramps Tribute LP

    A lot of their songs were covers or riff rip-offs. (I’m saying this as a huge fan.) There was a comp out years ago called Songs the Cramps Taught Us that is really great for reference. They stole way more than zepplin lol-but in a totally unique way.

    Late 1987 - Early 1990 Bill Lawrence "the Original" Hb-r/hb-l Pickups: Share Your Experiences

    I had one of these in bridge position of an old sg in the mid nineties. Never loved the tone. Found it harsh and mid scooped. Eventually replaced with a paf clone and there was that smoother creamy vintage tone I was after. Ymmv!

    Advice Needed: Vintage 1969 Fender Strat

    As you are looking at repair techs-if it needs a refret be sure they have worked in vintage fenders before. The frets were pushed in sideways (not pressed down like other brands) and need to be removed by pushing out. If pulled up like normally done you will get major fretboard chipping. Crucial!
