    Problem with pedal power supply

    I've got a Dunlop wah pedal that has a power input jack which holds onto the 9 volt source plug a bit too loosely; it comes out sometimes while playing and the guitar goes silent. Do any of you guys know of a fix that doesn't involve me sending the pedal back? Thanks in advance, Pine

    Tapped tele pickup question

    I have a bridge pickup that has a tapped coil. I'm not sure how to wire it, though. If I wanted to utilize it, should I replace the volume control or the tone control with a push-pull pot? Thanks in advance for your help.

    What is the thinnest hollow or semi hollow body guitar?

    Looking for a very thin yet hollow guitar. I saw a blond one on "Get Back" in George's hands that looked like it was only about 1" thick. I don't think it was the Casino because I saw another shot in John's hands of a thicker blond guitar that I'm pretty sure was the Casino.

    Need help trying to cop Leo Nocentelli's tone

    I do not have an original Starcaster, but I do have a thinline telecaster with 2 CuNiFe wide range pickups like the Starcaster had. I can tell in the middle position that the pickups have some of that chirp that Leo had, but it's not all the way there yet. Do you guys have any suggestions for...

    Big stages

    I have noticed a problem that we as a band encounter: We rehearse in a small basement. When we get to a large stage and spread out, we make mistakes in playing, miss cues, and screw up songs that we considered to be "locked in" . Does anyone else have this problem or know a way to remedy it?

    Any issues with replacing a 3 bolt Micro tilt Tele neck with a 4 bolt neck?

    I have a 72 Thinline Tele Reissue, but don't like the 7.25" radius or the frets. I want to replace the neck with something different. Can I put a 4 bolt neck in there? Also, to give me more purchase options, can I replace a 21 fret neck with a 22 fret neck, as long as the 22nd fret is the...

    Project guitar Leo Nocentelli content

    I have always wanted to cop the tone that Leo used to get in the Meters, but cannot afford an original Starcaster. I don't care for slim necks like the Squier Starcasters have. My thought is to rout out an Epiphone 339 or 335 and install two CuNiFe Wide Range pickups (which I already have) in...

    Sold Eastman T486 barely played

    I got this guitar as part of a very convoluted deal, the guitar store owner is a good friend of mine, and I didn't want to make him give me cash at that time so I got this. It plays great, I've only taken it out of of the case about 10 times or so. Some very light pick marks on the guard, comes...

    Suhr SSCII system question

    I have put 3 new single coil pickups in my Suhr Classic Pro. All three of them are "north top" but they are all 3 wound counterclockwise. I believe the SSCII spec requires them to be wound clockwise. I am still getting a 60Hz hum. Will I be able to get rid of the hum if I switch the leads on the...

    Pickup mounting screws issue

    I got a new set of pickups to load into a Suhr strat type pickguard. The heads of the height adjustment screws, if viewed from the side, has a conical cross section so that when driven in they sit about 1/8" above the plane of the plastic pickguard. Is there a quick and easy way to countersink...

    Anyone ever shimmed a Bigsby B5?

    Did a bunch of searches. I don't mean a shim under the neck, I mean under the Bigsby itself, to reduce the break angle of the strings over the bridge. What material did you use? Is there a commercially available product? I tried a Biggsfix, but that made the angle too shallow, and the strings...

    Question about taking the gloss off a fingerboard

    I have a heavily lacquered fingerboard on a guitar that adds noticeable drag to my fingers when I play. I have some 1000 grit sandpaper that I was going to use on it to try to get a more satin or eggshell finish. My question is, do I sand in the direction of the neck, which is what you would...

    gretsch question

    Last weekend I saw a guy with a blond gretsch guitar, a hollowbody, and it had a color drawing of a bird directly on the body, a little bit under the pickguard. I asked him the model number but forgot it, but I think it had either an "x" or an "s" in it. Do any of you guys know what the model...

    Top 3 strings of Tele are "dead"

    They just don't vibrate as freely as the bottom strings, which sound great. Has a Mastery bridge with a Bigsby, the action is not too low, they just don't ring out as much. Could it be the string tree or the nut? The frets are in decent shape as well.

    Is there any significant difference between SD '59s and SD Antiquities in a Les Paul?

    I have listened on the Seymour Duncan website and I am having a hard time telling the difference. I'm trying to cop a Dickey Betts tone. Which do you guys think does a better job?
