    So, what amp, pedal, etc do you hear in the guitar in this song?

    I hear lots of reverb and a Strat. What's generating the clipping tone? Amp? Pedal? Any other examples?

    P-90 sized pickups that lean to more Strat/Tele tones

    I'm looking for less mid-rangy, lower output P-90 sized pickups that lean toward Strat/Tele tones for a guitar routed for P-90s. Do you have any recommendations? Thank you. :)

    What tweed to build?

    My daughter has been taking lessons on my acoustic, and we have a second electric in route for her to play, too. She wants to build an amp and has shown an interest in taking things apart and building them for several years. I've got experience building amps, and so I don't need a kit. I tend...

    What's going to have less tension?

    What's going to have less tension? 1. Nines on a Tele tuned to 440 pitch? 2. Or, tens on a Tele tuned down 1/2 step? My fingers would like to know! Thanks. :)

    What pedal for tweed?

    I want a pedal to dirty up a tweed circuit. To just kinda push it into that bluesy, edgey response you get when you hit the strings harder. Any suggestion? And thank you in advance! :)

    Fret Dress & Set Up -- Asheville, NC

    My WW10 Tele is 9 years old and could use a fret dress. And I would like to consider installing compensated brass saddles so it'll intonate better, too. Do you have any recommendations for a fret dress, saddle installation, and set up? I'm willing to travel but would rather not ship the...

    What's your opinion of the value of this old Gibson?

    What's your opinion of a fair price for this guitar - a 1962 SG? The Bigsby is not original. The tuners are Sperzels from a while back. The pickups are not original but the original P-90s are included. The neck has a repaired, ugly crack at the heel but it is stable. The guitar has a partial...

    Well, It's Time to Build Another Amp -- Tremolux 5E9-A!!

    After chewing on this for nearly two years and gathering some parts, it's time to take the plunge and build another amp! Please join me... I've decided on a Tremolux 5E9-A for no particular reason other than I want one. I procured a surplus chassis from Mike Clark a while back, and it is...

    Played a Fender "Modern Player" Thinline Today

    I kinda liked it. If its representative of what's coming out of China, then I think guitars from there are getting better. The only thing I saw was that the fret ends were a bit rough but did not stick out. It was light, resonant, and the pickups sounded good. And to give you an idea of where...

    Which Tweed Tremolux to Build?

    I'm gonna build a tweed Tremolux, but I'm open to opinions on the 5E9-A verses the 5G9. It appears that the 5E9-A has is cathode-biased, has the paraphase invertor, and uses a cathode vary tremolo. The 5G9 has non-adjustable fixed bias (although I'd make it adjustable), has the long-tail...

    Cool, just won tweed Tremolux chassis off eBay from Mike...

    I was at Mike Clark's shop last October (he was helping me with my homemade brown Deluxe build), and I saw that he had a tweed Tremolux chassis on the shelf. I decided then and there that would be my next build. :aok Fast forward 3.5 months... I'm browsing eBay and see *that* chassis for sale...

    I'm not a pedal guy, but...

    Here's my problem. I sell every pedal I buy. I've owned the damn OCD pedal three times now. But I always go back to straight guitar-into-amp because I don't like to lose the immediacy that straight-in gives you... BUT I think I want another pedal. :bonk What would you recommend for my...

    Wood amp chassis?

    I'm thinking about building an amp, but I can't find an aftermarket chassis that fits it. I thought about building one out of wood and using brass plates here and there for grounding. What do you think? Anybody try it? I suppose that I would loose the shielding that a metal box provides.

    What's an October 1980 Deluxe Reverb Worth?
