    thanks a ton for the offer to test-drive the little Yamaha at your place. I just checked and saw I can play both (the C and the regular) at Just-Music and I will most likely just do that if i find the time to go there. I may just pick one up if I like it. But again, thanks for you help!

      Have fun down there!

    The subject of the paranormal no longer interests me, other than as a study in the odd things that people sometimes believe.

    One could call me closed minded, but I consider myself to be quite open minded, and having looked at both sides, made the decision that makes the most sense to me.

      Nothing wrong with that. Once in a while I'll read a book like that, but these days I'm usually either reading about canoes or about physics or philosophy. I burned out on the weird stuff. Lately, I'm into fiction with James Fenimoore Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales. I'm reading them in order of Natty Bumppo's life and about to start, "The Pathfinder".

    I've experienced a near death experience, an "out of body" experience, and one episode of Deja Vu myself.

    Strange as these events were, I have since realized that they were simply delusional episodes brought on by drugs and/or temporary lack of oxygen to the brain, and nothing more.
    1. Steerforth
      I've had episodes that I'm sure stemmed from insults to the brain caused by dumb stuff that I did. But I've had a couple that make me wonder, too. Take a look at "Consciousness Beyond Life" by Dr. Pim van Lommel, M.D. He presents some findings with documented cases of people knowing things that they could not have known without actually having been out of their bodies and such. It's pretty interesting.

    Thanks for the links to the book, but I was hoping for evidence, rather than more claims.

    Take care!

      Well. if you get time, it's worth a read. Food for thought at least.

    Hi Bender, was wondering if you had any of the HB Te 80 scratchplate sets left? Any idea of shipping to the UK if so?

    Thanks so much for your guidance on the Output Transformer for the Vox.....These are only about $31, and I am sure I can figure it out. My goal is to get more bass out of this bad boy. I like the sound, the crispness of the treble (minus the C6 and C20) and certainly the volume.

    In going for bass, is that what you would recommend?

    Thanks, Dave
    1. ICTRock
      there's only so much you can do here, the entire object of the top boost circuit was to add treble. fixing the input differences between this amp and a regular top boost is a good start, removing c20 makes it even more accurate. removing c6 kind of makes up for not having the cut control. better tubes, better output transformer, and better speaker (highly efficient ceramic) are great choices.

    Hi there, I saw one of your (from 2013) where you modded a Affinity Tele with a Bigsby-style trem. You did the bubba mod on the stock bridge and used the old saddle holes to let the string to through, did it give you any intonation issues?

    Anyway, thank you so much and congratulation for the amazing job on your mod back on 2013!
