  1. I kind of like the shape of this Fender acoustic headstock .
  2. Can’t offer any help but that really sux Was it insured?
  3. Could you use soap bar P-90’s ?
  4. Seems so simple, it makes me wonder why they’re not made that way. Is there a down side. I’ll have to try this on my 335 clone when I get a chance.
  5. Looks like a great project. Keep us posted We need a good project to follow
  6. Thanks The top is a maple veneer over what I think is alder, I wish it was a maple cap. The mini is meatier than a standard single coil which I like. I have other teles with SC pickups so this gives a different tone option. By the way, welcome back it’s been a while since you stopped by.
  7. That’s really what hooked me. When I saw it I had to have it . A case of lust at first sight.
  8. It’s a pretty one and arrived well set up needing only tuning; The fret worrk was great. it seems like there was some sort of coating or something in the jack,after a shot of contact claner it sounded much better. The neck had an unfinished feel that some people pefer. I don't so I treated it with Orange Glo . This not only enhanced the grain but gives that smooth feel i like.The neck feels pretty good now and the nut is wider than some of the Squiers but I would prefer a little more thickness . The beauty of playing is with both pickups. The bridge is not as twangy as others but blends well with the mini. It does not have full size pots but I wouldn't notice if I didn't look. I don't completely understand the wiring. The neck seems to have the in wires gronded and the grounds on the switch. I do know that hum has never been a problem. It is not a Custom Shop and does not have the same quality feel of one , it's more like some of the Fenders that ae also made in Indonesia. I don't think it's a printed paper veneer because the grain pattern does change when I turn it in the light. I wanted a thinline with a neck mini and there are not many out there. Overall I like it quite a bit especially for the money
  9. Vintage Brand thinline with e fresh set of D’’Addario 11’s . Straight into a solid state Princeton Chorus using the clean channel. EQed on 10 straight across to give a slight drive ,the reverb is at about 2 . The volume is plenty loud on 1. I needed to wrap the low E to the top of the peg to lessen the break angle. I know they make staggered tuners but prefer the vintage slotted style.
  10. I did try putting something on YouTube once just to see if I could do it. Using a USB cable from a Mustang amp into a laptop running Audacity didn't exactly give good sound
  11. I don't do sound cloud or any thing like that, sorry
  12. I had a chance to create a preset of my own today. It is capable of some cool sound.
  13. it worked perfety. The master volume dosen't effect the line out . This allowed me to cut back the master and adjust to the PA sound then bring up the master again so to a level i could hear as we played. The amp is a fun toy at home too .Not exactly the same as my "real amp" though. But maybe i need more time to dial it in
  14. It must be a fairly mild climate go you. The house here gets very dry over the winter when the heat is on. We use a heat pump which is a dry heat. It may go to 30 percent so I add humidity
  15. Thanks it really is ideal for its purpose..
  16. Yes they are cheap plastic housings..
  17. JHS pedals did a video saying that many boutique pedal builders actually get their chips from Beheringer
  18. I talked to an old friend the other day who has had some struggles in life. He told me he’s just been playing acoustic these days . I t seems his amp died and he’s been unable to replace it. I’m planning a trip up his way in a few weeks to pass this amp along to him so he can get his Strat out again.
  19. I got the Mustang LT 50 today and it should be just what I need. There are plenty of sound options, the one I’m currently checking out is an acoustic simulator. It’s a good starting point while I create something of my own. Here is something I really like , while the line out is affected by the gain and volume adjustments it is not affected by the master volume. This allows me to balance the amp speaker and the central monitor to heat what’s really going out. To me this is very useful and of the best features . Thanks for all of the discussions . By the way there are some great sounds for home use like Chaicago Blue and Rock-a-Billy . Oh yeah
  20. I always loved that song and this is an excellent cover
  21. The cable is Fender. Plugged straight into the amp it sounds as good as my Mogami Either way I had no use for the gig bag , only hard casas
  22. Free is good All they gave me was a free gig bag when I bought a Mexican Strat Traded the gig bag for a couple Beheringer pedals and some cables I use one of the cables every day. The pedals are on the shelf
  23. Mustang is also becoming a sub brand of amps
