  1. Happy holidays to all!! I've got GAS for one of these tobacco burst single pup, single cutaway, & there are several variations. Is there any one particular runs that stands out as a more solid build than the others? I see one with the olde style Gibson logo, one that has LP100 inked onto the h'stock, another that says LP Junior, & yet another with a big JUNIOR on the truss cover. For about 900 bills in looking at at a 2018, LP Junior on the stock, blank truss cover, & all else standard.... Any tips or trends on these different builds? Many thanks in advance. >>> >>>40 yrs ago I had & gigged with both, a '54 Jr. & a '59 Special,,, I had,, but no longer do & I want something now... having a 2 pup Special would be nice, but I also used to have a 90's reissue one, & it didn't feel right.... I like the way THIS one looks,,,, G.A.S.
  2. Greeting all,, Can ya'll set me straight & confirm the proper configuration: BLENDERS go clockwise from NL>>HIGH>>ZERO RES.? TONE NL's go clockwise from HIGH RES.>>LOW RES.>>NL? Thanks in advance & a happy & healthy New Year to all~
  3. Hi all,, what the skinny on the close comparisons all the different U.K. models; G12H30/55hz, G12H30/75hz, the G12M 20w, & the EVH tribute speaker, allegedly the same as the G12M,,, My amp are mostly 15-20w boutiquee types, except for my Mesa DC3 & Egnater Rebel30 combos... my 1995 tweed 1x12 Budda TwinMaster has a V30, which I'll probably leave, as it's one LOUD amp, & probably capable of blowing something... I don't like anything overall bright, & I like the speaker compression, & mellow & detailed... Thoughts from all you trusted ears & opinions? Many thanks in advance & be well~
  4. Hi all~ I need to replace the SPDT sliders, & I picked these up, and wanted to know how to wire up the new ones. Hopefully the pics show you what you need to know. They're simple on/off switches. How do I check for continuity? Thanks in advance.
  5. Yeah, not enough relief,,, it's not terrible, & I'm not buzzing out too bad, but just curious to know if there's any way of getting some upward motion? What does that bolt exactly do, pull on the truss? Anyway I have some new 50mm E to e saddles coming cuz the ones it came with are closer to 52mm, & everything's not seated perfectly. Thanks for the cautionary advise. Kenny
  6. G'evnin' all~ Lotsa folks have trust issues, but I have a truss issue,, nothing too serious or something a shim couldn't remedy, BUT I want to get a touch more bow to the neck. This is a '71 Harmony Marquis, (strangely similar to the then future Fender Lead) and that piece resting on top, is the bolt that screws on to that exposed truss,and as you turn it clockwise is definitely the wrong way, & I'm out of any room to create just a touch of some bow. So, before I get really daring and get the vice grips out to try to nudge the truss, my gut tells me to turn it counterclockwise, but I can do everything but necks & frets, other than a slight truss adjust on my Breedlove 12 strings,,,, So, before I take on this task, which direction would I turn that exposed truss, again, to add an ever so slight bow? Anything else I should attempt to try to get me to the same place? Many that in advance, stay safe & be well all~ Kenny
  7. G'day all & hoping all are well~ I need two of these switches, as the ones in this Harmony Marquis are scratchy & intermittent, even after a good cleaning. FWIW, the screw holes are 29/30 mm apart. Many thanks in advance to all, & stay safe~
  8. Laney L5 Studio w/USB ops.... Thread starterzozoe29 Start dateA moment ago Tags None Showing 20 Hi all,, I've owned several Laneys in years past, & the L5T112 combos or heads I've had were heaven, great low volume OD & great reverb,,, But just really want to know how well the USB direct out sounds when going right into the console... Is it a faithful representation, w/o any graininess or fuzz, & I could expect a solid signal for late nite tracking? Thanks in advance & be well all!!
  9. Hi all,,, Everything else on the market is 52, 54+mm, & I need 2", 50mm, & can't find them anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Be well all~
  10. Hi all,, I need 50mm, 2", center E to center e spaced Strat style steel saddles for this short scale guitar, & narrow than most E to e necks. Having trouble & could use a few leads. Thanks in advance & be well~ Kenny
  11. Hi all & hope all are well~ For my one & only Squier DIY, which I though I was hot stuff outfitting it with brass block & saddles,, but those are the lessons we learn when we DIY,, the gtr is great plugged in, but acoustically dead,,, but now am going all black steel with a Wilkinson SB513 from the Gotoh factory, everything I need & (no need to piece it together) pictured below,,, so, keeping it real simple, πŸ‘orπŸ‘Ž Thanks to advance~ Be well! πŸ•‰
  12. Yeah, great story, & somewhere in between my best buds & his brother's knack for a good 'story', lies the truth. I just sent Sean an email, since Yoko doesn't pick up!!πŸ€” Will advise,,, thnks
  13. Okay, so here's the alleged story: My life-long buddy of 65 yrs & counting, had an older brother whose mother-in-law had been a housekeeper at the Dakota in NYC, w/Yoko Ono being one of her clients in & around the mid 80's. This maid was gifted this CORT bass, of course with no documentation, along with a solid state Peavey bass amp, that belonged to the family, but was probably young Sean's, and wasn't getting much use by anybody. My buddy & I are closer than blood, & closer to him than his brother (rip), who's been known to whip up a story or two in his life!!,, Here are all pics that I took of it, & if someone would possibly be so kind as to chime in & shine some light as to the age, model, & quality/value of this CORT bass. Many thanks in advance, be well~ Kenny πŸ•‰πŸŽΆ
  14. Good day & hope all are well~ If you check out my picture, you'll see those 3 dip switches, & the 2 end switches need to be replaced, but my technician can't get in between those 2 green wafers to unsolder the bottoms of the switches, and the wafers don't easily separate. Who locally could I turn to to help tackle this tricky job,,, a jeweler, a blacksmith πŸ€”,,, any thoughts? Thanks so much in advance for your help~ Stay well~ Kenny
  15. Hi all,,, Okay,,,I've found several great mics under $300Any thoughts on these for the soundhole on 12 string, single mixing a 6 string, & possibly some vox?RODE NT2-A & (RM2 clip)AUDIO TECHNICA AT2050 AKG O420CAD M179CAD E300S Again, many thanks.Kenny

  17. Good day all~ After a 10 yr hiatus & liquidation of everything, I'm getting back into it with the Tascam Model 24... So far I have an Equitek E100 for electric guitar, but for recording my custom 12 string acoustic, (& single micing a 6 string on omni), thinking I'd put a larger diaphragm mic capable of an omni pattern on the sound hole, & put the E100 on the neck. Anything exceptional for $200 or less,,, if something sticks out for a little more, I'll live. Thanks all & best of health~
  18. Nice effort, but I think James Calvin Wilsey's rolling over right around now,,, but, that's just me,,, i love that guitar part & sound, & have fortunately & successfully been able to duplicate his tone & feel through an AC30,,, & it is heavenly!! But I applaud your work!! That song is an official 3-chord wonder!!
  19. Actually, you'd want the condenser on the sound hole, & a dynamic on the neck, or condensers on both. I just wanted to know if there's an exceptional all in one stereo mic,,, I tend not to think so.... Thanks
  20. Hi all~ While i know there are probably NO direct drop-ins for tubes, except for the 12**7 family, and that different rectifiers, if acceptable to the circuit, can change the amp's attitude, albeit not greatly, I am curious about the 6SC,SN,SL,SJ7 family. With appropriate design tweaks, which of these octals share the same pinout or are close enough to be rewired, and could be subbed, if any....?? As I'm legally blind, it's often difficult to easily download & investigate these stats, which is why I come to this place, hoping for some quicker results. Again, I don't do mods, & all I'm good for is a 3 prong cord, change out an old resistor or cap, install a fuse receptacle, & change tubes. With the octals, I'd like to know what subs are possible, even w/some rewiring, & what their gain factors are.... Basically, I'm having someone modify some 50/60's mono tube PA amps for guitar use, & was curious to know what tubes that I have in my best collection, can be swapped in for some better gain. Thank you again, Kenny
  21. Hiya all,,, Looking to keep the load light, & need a decent, not very expensive, Stereo mic.... So far, I've only seen the Audio Technica AT822, but I'm not sure if it excels at recording acoustic guitars & vocals, as much as it does for field work? Something that could do well also w/electric guitars (not too loud).... Thanks for amy & all suggestions. Stay safe & be well~
  22. Hi & hope all are well. Now, about that HUMP in the Blender,,, the whole of the effect happens between 8 & 10 on the dial,,, there's no gradual sweep. I thought I had tried a Linear, but I cannot recall, but right now there's audio pots in there. It's not a terrible thing, & it's kinda nice to have the blend just a quick touch away, but how do I get back to a 'normal' sweep? What hump? 😏 thnx all, be well!! Thanks,Kenny πŸ•‰πŸŽΆ
  23. Hi & hope all are well. A quick question,,,, I noticed on all of my pickguard I've been making, positions 2 & 4 sound like you threw a blanket over the speaker. SD Surfers, SD Texas Hots, Little59, anything. 1/3/5 all sound great, but 2/4 loose all the top end & quack. Everything's in phase, & basically cool except for that veil. The only thing these pickguards all share in common, is a Blender Pot. I have a master Vol., Master Tone, & the blender. Before I start operating on everything, what the heck could it be? My volume pots are already 300k, but does the value of the single tone control pot matter? And/or does the Blender value matter? Thanks,Kenny πŸ•‰πŸŽΆ
