  1. Well everything is shut down so I got a chance to put that switch in .

    what I want is neck bucker ,bridge bucker and both together. The other 2 positions weren’t that important so I went 

    1 bridge bucker 

    2 bridge single, neck single parallel 

    3 bridge bucker ,neck bucker 

    4 bridge single ,neck bucker 

    5 neck bucker

    4 has kind of a Strat middle sound I like

    If I get bored I can always move a couple more wires

  2. I have a VS15R  I use in the basement, it's an OK little amp . It has the Black and Gold  speaker and a tiny spring reverb . I actually used it in church for a while before I went to acoustic.   Picked it up at a yard sale with a cheap guitar for like $35. Cleaned up the guitar added a new set of strings and made a couple bucks,so the amp is basically a freeby.


  3. I’ve been relying on college radio stations to find something new. They have a very eclectic mix that I listen to while driving. Drawback is that when I hear something I like I need to remember the time and track it down on their playlist 

  4. Nice, glad you found what you wanted. 
    You mentioned the strings are not right over some of the poles. It’s hard to see on the pic but is the string spacing on the neck even? Looks like it could be a little closer on the low E side but could just be camera angle. You may be able to shift the neck a little if it’s not even and that might help out a little bit with pickup spacing. Overall though if it sounds good just play it.

    go here.


    scroll down to the section " 2 Humbuckers W/ 5-Way Rotary Switch"



    Took me a while to figure things out . The switch was a bit of a puzzle it’s self . The link you posted helped me a lot . Now I understand how everything works and it’s actually quite simple. Now one of these days I can actually wire it up

    Thanks again

    Thanks for the welcome. :D


    I drop by occasionally, but I'm playing a lot less these days and guitar tends to take a back seat. Play acoustic slide in a gospel blues band mostly now, speed having diminished and the hands not really being strong enough to seriously keep up these days.

    Sounds like my kind of music 👍🏼
