    Just worked on the neck pocket a bit. Still needs more attention. Put in two treble bleeds as the 1 meg volume pots were pretty useless under 8.

    Nice neat solder job, but if I was you, I'd change out those old, undependable, gooey wax caps with some nice new shiny orange plastic ones! :eek: :cool: They have fresher farads anyway.

    Well Rick,
    I have to fess up, those Russian Greenies were for you and Helmut. Along with the runs of cloth covered wire! I knew I'd catch heat!

    The original schematic said .02 and I had these .022s in my used cap jar so they found a new home and are doing a fine job. The big winners however are the treble bleeds. They just make the whole volume sweep usable. A great invention!

    Man, do they sound sweet! I'm really impressed by the clarity in clean mode, and the overtones are really nice with the gain cranked up a bit. I'm definitely making one of these for my Telemaster!

    Very nice. You obviously changed out those old, worn-out commie-rat caps for some nice new orange plastic, umm . . . Well, Chicom caps.

    Well Rick,
    You can have green commie PIOs or orange commie polypropylene film/ foil. Which do your electrons prefer? For me, green went with Shoreline Gold better than orange so the sonic fashionistas have spoken.

    I didn't want to say anything but since you prompt me ..I think they swallow too much of the reverb. Can you do another clip with reverb? :lol:
