  1. I’ve had a Harmony 8418 for a little while. It was working fine yesterday but today no sound is coming out. I haven’t had any issues before. The fuse looks ok & the speaker wires are connected. The 5y3gt is lighting up and gets warm. The 6v6 doesnt seem to light up but it gets warm. The 6sj7 is enclosed so I can’t see if it lights up but it did get faintly warm. Any suggestions?
  2. Has anyone tried an EHX Ripped Speaker pedal? Thoughts?
  3. thank you. i think that may actually be too thick. i used 2-3 sheets of paper cut into strips and added them to the side closest to the neck.
  4. ok, thank you. i figured it was probably ok, but wanted confirmation.
  5. Do you think this level of tilt in the saddle is a problem? There is a very subtle gap between the saddle and bridge. Also, I like the sound of FWI saddles and the only compensated one I can find is made for Martin guitars, but it seems that Martin uses a slightly thinner saddle dimension - about a difference of the thickness of a couple sheets of paper. Any recommendations?
  6. no worries. sounds good. duo is just 1/2 supertron & 1/2 filtertron & both of those pickups work on both the treble & bass sides
  7. this guitar would be more similar to es-125 shape. for the godin kingpin the p90 sits on top of the body. does the es-125 have hole in the body for a pickup?
  8. already did this. could only take a tiny bit off because ring is already almost flush with screws on bottom of pickup. no hole in body for pickup. it sits on top of body.
  9. thanks. just tried it & sounds much better.
  10. ....also note that in the JazzGuitar post above they refer to the bridge pickup; for this pickup one could sand the spacer to lower the pickup, but doing this on the neck pickup doesn't really work because the spacer is almost flush with the screws on the bottom of the p90
  11. pickup housing sits just slightly below the neck. if you're not doing easy finger style playing and do some serious strumming you get intense attack because the strings are too close and if you want to adjust the pole pieces to tweek the tone the strings will hit the pole pieces. i've always had the bridge height high but haven't played it much because of this. check out this post which also addresses the issue http://www.jazzguitar.be/forum/guitar-amps-gizmos/12875-just-got-godin-5th-ave-kingpin-cw.html
  12. I have a godin kingpin guitar with a single p90 in the neck position (sits on top of the body). It fits the guitar but it's way to close to the strings. Anyone know of a shorter p90 that would give some more space between the pickup and the strings? Maybe a jazzmaster-style pickup - i saw a video on youtube that i can't find now, but someone running into the same issue on a different hollowbody and made a 4k wind jazzmaster-style pickup that fit (had fixed magnets under each string instead of pole pieces)
  13. i'll start another thread to see if anybody knows of a shorter replacement for a p90, but if anyone has any input on cutting into the godin i'd appreciate it. will this compromise the guitar structurally? will the acoustic and amplified tone change much because of the hole?
  14. no. found some posts that their service is horrendous and they don't even have a phone number listed so i didn't bother, so i figured i'd replace it with another pickup - potentially a shorter p90 if possible, or look into cutting
  15. thanks. there is only one pickup in the guitar so interaction with another pickup not an issue. it's hollowbody so the wire will just fall inside the body & not be pinched. pickup is a duotron — gonna try the rails under bass strings & pole piece section under treble strings
