    Strat pickups I describe,you suggest,please

    Thats just it,like my original post said,I want to get as close to the stock original pickups as I can,so you say that a VV heavy blues II which is a alnico II magnet is about equal to the stock hot overwound alnico 5 magnet?Or should I go for the virtual solo?Sounds like one is a hair under...

    New Fender American standard strat tone controls question

    Thats the thing,BOTH tones work in neck and bridge.So I took it back to G center and their tech opened it up and a wire had exposed wire showing and it was touching a pot or something,so he clipped it at the exposed part and resoldered it.Now it works as its supposed to!!They charged Fender for it.

    I asked a serious question.The more responses the better.Why are you responding and typing and not jamming your guitar.

    Storing Gibson Les paul guitar upside down in its case

    Well I talked to the top tech in the area and they said that storing a guitar upside down is not ideal but wont hurt the instrument.The most important thing when storing a guitar is heat and humidity.

    Storing Gibson Les paul guitar upside down in its case

    Do you know what I mean,Instead of sitting up normally with the end pin closest to the ground,turn it upside down.If the shoulders are resting and supported by the inside of the case why would it be bad?
