  1. Again, mission accomplished when as per your many suggests, I loosened the neck bolts, applying as much pressure to the very topside of the neck, cautiously pushing it towards the high 'e' side, & with my socked foot wrapped around the left horn, I was able to nudge a satisfactory 1mm or so (before & after pictured above), & tighten at least one upper bolt, & VOILA!! New bone nut & gold mini Grovers coming in a few days, & this crazy Cocobolo is done, & spectacular, in firm & fashion!!
    Thnx all~

    G'day~ This is my 1st adventure with installing a single H'bucker & splitting it via a P/P.  Looking at these pics & pot, am I NOT to bend back a tab and ground it to the casing (like it shows in the SD shot?), & simply connect the appropriate wires to C2, C3, & ground & out & be done?  Thnx 


    Like the 3rd pic?  Thnx

    Did it work for you?

    Oh, yes!!!

    Well,, ya'll rock, & you saved me from a task I was hesitant to attack from the git-go,,,,
    Loosening the neck, I was able to squeeze at least 1mm of sideways tilt, & as you can see, it's close enuff for comfort,,,, Get a gander of that nut!!! That'll get me banned, huh?!?! & there's the before a after neck shots
    So, all in all, I'll be all in for just a simple nut job....  VOILA!! Again, thnx....

    peace ॐ

    Looking at your guitar the neck needs to be moved to the right (treble side) it's not inline .You have the low E string off the fret board near the body. This is the problem with your guitar!


    Oh,, now I get what you were saying,,, I thought you meant the entire neck needs to shift over, but to nudge judge the headstock end to the right!! Thnx

    Don't you mean to the left, bass side, as you're looking at the front? 

  6. Hey #49,, NO, I do not own nor do I have access to a drill press.  Moving the assembly back only 2mm will get my saddles off the back wall, but the intonation as it sits now is 99.998% on, & certainly close enuff for RnR, but I'm cursed by my pursuit for perfection,,,, If I didn't need to make the lateral correction, I wouldn't mess with going back at all. Here's another shot:


  7. Hi all~ OK,, Being the person that has learned to do pretty much everything myself, I'm pondering whether or not to tackle the task of moving this here bridge 2mm to the side & 2mm back. It's a wonderful freshman attempt project guitar that I acquired, & even before I received it, I could tell from the photos that something was sligtly off....

    So what's the best way to pull this thing off w/o wrecking it beyond beauty, then wishing I had let my 'guy' do it??

    Thanks all~


  8. Hi all,,, I'm seeking some kind of 'general wellness' conditioner for my Purple Heart fretboard....

    I don't know if there's one oil that's pretty much good for all woods, & some that aren't. 

    Thanks in advance, Kenny

    1) The Volume makes a giant leap up right out of the gates, & by the time you reach 2 or 3, the amp is quickly on its way to full tilt...
    2)The tone has a great sweep going only, but between 7 & 10, there's a giant leap, & it would be great to make better use it's taper.

    I s'pose it's the same issus that plagues both controls...

    Many thanks!!

  10. Hi all~ As I prepare to replace the piece of "you know what' input jack on my Pro Jr., now a Tonedog Pro Sr., I see shunting & nob,,, why and when would I desire or need the shunting type jack for my purpose??


  11. Hmmm, so it IS normal!?? I've heard of 50's & 60's wiring that differ in this fashion, but it's too hot today,,, Very cool info,,, Any simple link to the Schematic for independent controls, or both, so I can match my setup?  Hey, it's 95 in the shade down here, so yes, a lazy sod i am,,, thnx in advance folks🕉🎶

  12. Good morning all~ Forgive me as it's been a while since I've owned a LP or similar with a standard 2 p/u, 2-Vol,, 2-Tone setup,,, BUT when you're in the middle position and you fully back off the volume of either p/u, is it normal to loose all volume? It's a Dean Hardtail that has had the original p/u's replaced with some X2N clones that sound fine, but I sense that something is amiss... As an aside, the 10.3K Neck p/u is overpowering the 16.6K Bridge, regardless of how much i compensate the p/u heights,,,??....
    thnx in advance!!Screenshot_20210829-100230_Gallery.thumb.jpg.c767a428ecd25e6c2b90e9833ad6b25f.jpg

  13. hiya all,, well G.A.S. has struck again, & I played this super nice, small Dead HD, that had a huge Gibson style velour on the back, & the p/u's had replaced with Dimarzio X2N', a surprisingly, they offered up a great sound in all 3 positions,,, & oh yeah, it weighed a ton... There were no markings or stickers on the back of the headstock telling the country of origin,,, FWIW, ALL of the similar models I've seen online have no volute, & are all marked Korean or Japan....

    I'm curious to know what ya'll think,,, I'm certainly no snob to non-USA guitars, as I own 2 Epiphones, one Nighthawk Deluxe made Indonesia, and the other a Jared James Nichols LP Custom that I believe are from China,,, & boy,,,  they sound & play better than any Gibson I've tried in the past 30 yrs.,,, So, any more info out there?? Thnx a million~ Did I mention the BIG-ass volute on the back?!


  14. Just after posting, i came across more than I wanted to...

    I need better saddle height for a better break point,,, so I'll just need to measure then compare, then pray...

    thnx guys,,, Back to to your Nintendo games.....😏👽
