    JJ EL844?

    Hi all,,, although their output is probably less than their EL84 counterparts, but can they handle the voltage of an AC30, or a Boogie DC3? Thanks
  2. Thanks friends. I finally got a reply back from Guitarelectronics.com, who said they would accommodate my needs at no extra cost, & their prices are good!! Be well~
  3. Hi all,,, where can a guy get a few of these either in 300k to 350k, +/-10% max, short 1/4" shaft, split & knurled, or not, only if I really need to...,,,.forget Mouser! Linear & Audio! Thanks & be well~
  4. Thanks Mack, it's actually funny, & don't let my urgency for quick & reliable info slow you down,,, we all can use a little levity,,, btw, it's an Oster~~πŸ€”
  5. Thnx, Gardo~ This is my main Strat that has seen more pickguard swaps in the last 40 yrs than you could imagine. The middle p/u is a beast of a Dimarzio SDS1, but I sits low & works well,,, but notice the tone I never really use on the end, & the middle knob is the 'Blender Pot', with a lefty knob that goes from 10 to 0 since as you go clockwise & the pot is out of circuit!!
  6. Yeah, I need a 5mm. Funny, when I went to HD to use their displays to see where my whammy comfortably screwed into, & the 5mm was missing!!,,,but the 10-32 was too small, 6mm too big, and i bought a 5mm bolt which fit perfectly on the guitar. Thanks!!
  7. DADDYMACK, yer funny, & maybe knowledgeable on guitar electronics, but you're not helpful or entertaining.... & it would better serve the room for you to stick to the script, & thanks for your lack of assistance.
  8. Can I simply use a regular pot as a blender knob? Thanks all & be well!
  9. Thanks for the info, guys. It's off to home depot! FYI, I have one of those threading devices, & I was able cut a 6mm down to 5mm w/no issues. Normally I wouldn't take such 'measures', but it was an older thick, & almost straight that I simply loved. peace & be well~
  10. Hi all, I just got this guitar for a steal, an 80's E Series MIJ Strat Squier. My 6mm bars are too big, another unknown width one is too small. What to do, what to get? Preferably a shorter Gilmour-style bar. Be safe & stay well~~ πŸ•‰
  11. You're a bad penguin, a very bad penguin!! Great stuff, & be well~ πŸ•‰
  12. Cool, MRBROWN,, could you kindly & easily trace this out for me or direct me to a good schematic? Thanks
  13. Hi all,, I understand there's lots of variables, but typically, do you get better quack using the North or South coils of your bridge HB, in conjunction with rwrp SC middle? And same for which coil would better quack opposite the neck SC, if I had that option? Thanks & stay well~~ πŸ•‰
  14. Hiya,,, Owning 2 Fernandes Sustainers, hopefully I can help. First, when you insert your cable into the guitar, is there an indicator light anywhere, on the rear circuit cover, o the front? If not, get a fresh battery that you know works, and if you don't have effect pedal-like battery connects that you can't screw up, make sure you insert it the right way. On both my guitars, with the Sustainer toggle off(down), all of your pups should work normally, whether you have a 3 or a 5 way, a make sure things are normal. When you switch on the Sustainer, the bridge pup should be on all the time along w/the Sustainer. You mean when you have the neck pup on, you get regular p/u sound and no sustaining? Does your neck pup have to Sustainer coil as well as a regular pup coil? One of mine as a Sustainer only neck, while my other one has dual purpose coils. The Sustainer neck up on the red guitar doesn't work & the great folks s Fernandes told me I definitely need a new board!! Did it ever work properly? & who owned it before you? Kenny πŸ•‰
  15. Hi all & hoping most of you are well,,, I've been to Schaller's site, where their 'foolproof' instructions are tailored for a typical 3-knob setup, while my need is to how to translate the final outputs coming off the switch to my 1Vol-1Tone setup. And of course I tried to contact them via email, forgiving the difference in time zones, it's been more than a week. Thank you for your attention.
  16. Good day all,,, I just received my switches, & though Schaller gives foolproof instructions on their site, I need to know how to wire the MEGA E & E+ switches for master Volume + master Tone,,,2 knobs. Thanks very much in advance & be well~~
  17. "Vv⁰Thnx for the tips. I'm probably going to guy it, going with a Schaller MEGASWITCH E, giving you the N&B instead of the middle by itself, and all other positions still the same. Be well~
  18. Hmmm,,,,Hope you're all doing well,,,, Check this out,,, I picked up this 80's Strat E-series, wonderful creme, & when plugged it in 1,3,& 5 were fine, hum & all, but 2 & 4 were out of phase & HUM in #2,,,, Okay, so I opened it up,, all the whites were to hot, blacks to ground, so I anyway swapped the wires on the middle pup & now they're all in phase, got my quack back, but now 4 is humming,,, do I have to live the rest of my life with hum in 2 or 4?? I'm cursed,,,, hopefully these pics will get us somewhere...FWIW, the B/M/N measure 4.7/5.97/4.81, respectively. It looks like a 'set', but isn't the bridge p/u usually the hottest?
  19. Gardo & Keith Holland got me.. like I said very good deal, nice guitar, & not a big deal if were to skip it.... Just curious~
  20. Hey there again~ Take a look at the photo & let me know if this is doable, having a 'real' guitar guy make room for a 22nd fret on this neck? I'm a stickler for having that extra 1/2 note, but the guitar is local, cheap, and a good platform for my pickguards I'm slapping together. To my naked eye, it looks like there's enough room, especially not needing to be ultra concerned about intonation,,,if you're up that high, not a whole lot matters... Thanks for the ops!!
  21. Hi all & hope yer all well & staying in tune!! I'm ready to take another plunge, this time looking at something much more vintage, w/perhaps a little twist... It's either the SD Antq II Surfers,,, the Antq Texas Hots,,, or if there's anything noteworthy from Fender,,, or anything exceptionally vintage sounding in the Noiseless category. Noise may very be an issue as though I don't play loud, my higher gain Boogie & Egnater love 60hz hum, let you know it!! I like SD p/u's!! I have plenty of 'boutiquee power' on hand, so I want the best quack in the 2&4 positions, bluesy in the neck, clear & distinctly Fender in the bridge, & a middle that again, makes a great 2/4 sound. If another brand jumps out at and is not muy expensivo!! It WAS suggested that I go w/the Surfers, or their Classic Stack + if noise is a concern.Thanks all & be smart, stay safe!!!
  22. Thanks Grant & Daddy,,, sorry for the longwindedness, but thanks for indulging & giving me the expected thumbs up!! Be well~
  23. Thanks for all your help, but each picture I posted, clearly has the exact coil combos described, along with my scribbling saying which Mega switch allegedly performs each task. I don't need all the same 3 switches, and i don't think I mentioned anything about series & parallel. Wherever I wrote 'ALT', I want to know if a simple toggle could be added to swap the N & S coils anywhere there's the HB and a SC,,, AND if too complicated & requires anything more than the prescribed Mega Switch, I'll just rewire accordingly when I get the urge. Looks like 2 of my guards can use the MEGA E, & the HS guard requiring the E+ Switch. Sorry if I made it sound more complicated than it is, but it isn't & I thought I provided the perfect pictures. Thanks again all!! Kenny
  24. Hi guys,, I haven't bought anything yet, and all of my switching needs are pictured above,, 7 pics ~ Three different pickguards, an SSS, HS, & a HSS. WHICH is the best SuperSwitch out there that would 100% cover each of my needs above. Thnx
  25. Ok GARDO & everyone else~~~ First pic is a Standard SSS guard, but using the MEGA E, or some friendly facsimile, offering a diff. #3 sound, w/the B+N,,,, Next up(blue page & 2 others) is a simple HS guard, I call my RR mod, with 5 unique settings, but with the MEGA E+ & 2 alt. schems showing the N&S coils reversed for diff. quackability! 1V & 1T,,, Last 3 pics are my HSS guard, with ONE Volume & ONE Tone, & tone affecting only the Bridge p/u, which I already have on auto-tap, BUT with the MEGA E, offering swappable N&S coils in positions 2 & 3 (schematics circled), and I want to maintain my 1V/1T setup. So, what to get,,,Schaller E & E+, a Fender Superswitch, some other quality Superswitch facsimile, and is there one switch that does all of the above? Thanks all & be well~~ πŸ•‰
