  1. Not to hurt your feelings but I'd say move the decimal point one place to the left and you should be in the ballpark
  2. Another mod is to take the middle pickup off the switch and give it it’s own volume control. You can rewire the switch for series and parallel wiring with the P 90s and bring in the middle pickup anytime. Or just use a 3 way switch for Nashville wiring
  3. I've had blend pots on 2 different Telecasters and found them to be tone suckers. I have a "blend pot " on my Strat for the bridge humbucker blending single and dual coils.,this uses a regular pot.
  4. I’m mildly intrigued by this project. I like the fret markers better than the silly PRS birds anyway. Don’t mind the lightning bolt either. I’ll be following. Thanks for posting
  5. Thanks for the info, I would be interested in knowing more
  6. What is it you are trying to do?

    Thanks for the suggestion my phone is a little too smart. I opened a new tab, typed T and it was already suggesting the amp for me. I’d give one of those amps a try when life returns to something resembling normal
  8. I ran into the same thing the first time I wired a switch

    After literally decades of looking I pulled the trigger and bought an acoustic bass. I know they aren’t loud enough acoustically which is why I never bought one. Saturday MF had them for the stupid deal of the day at $169 . That was it I had to have one It’s a Dean EAB satin finish .. spruce top mahogany neck and body . Something called balsamo for the fretboard it’s a 34 inch scale and like 50 inches overall I like the satin finish on the neck and the build quality seems decent . The strings are D’Addario phos bronze so the sound is a little bright but useable. Playing with a pick it has a piano like sound unplugged. Haven’t done much with an amp yet. I know these things get no love but for the price I’m happy
  14. A different thought on the weight of a guitar is that it can be too light. I once went to GC intending to come home with an Ibanez AF55.. I even brought along my own amp . The big turnoff was the guitar felt like it was made of balsa wood. Eventually I did buy an Ibanez AF75 which just feels more substantial than the AF55. The tailpiece is big part of the difference for sure. I just like the way it feels
  15. Well at least you’re generating traffic
  16. Thanks, Will do I've looked at these for years so it's about time
  17. Musicians Friend Stupid Deal of the Day Dean acoustic bass guitar $169 https://www.musiciansfriend.com/bass/dean-eab-acoustic-electric-bass/519943000091000 If it's playable it has to be worth it. If not I can send it right back
  18. Thot something was wrong when I saw the ads. I only occasionally check in these days and this is one more discouragement
  19. Hey, great to see you stopping by the old hangout. I actually followed the build thread with great anticipation. The results justified the anticipation. I hear that choir “ahhh” when I look at it
  20. According to Seymour Duncan ,if the pickup has non adjustable poles you need better pickups.
  21. Nice rustic look. I really like thinlines. Play it in good health
  22. Looks good, how about more info on the body. What kind of wood and finish?
  23. I was doing something similar with E.C.’s “I Can’t Stand It”
