    AA763 Nightmare

    Thank you to everyone for the help! Got it up and running this weekend after a full re-cap and replacing the out of spec resistors. I'm super excited to set up the three Bandmasters and give them all a go!

    Yes I am measuring AC.

    AA763 Nightmare

    I understand why people say this, I do. But for me, I never buy something like this without the intention of tinkering with it. I leave it up to you guys to preserve history. I’m going to be dragging this thing on the road, so it’s going to get abused anyway.

    AA763 Nightmare

    Nothing supremely invasive or irreversible. Tremolo cut push-pull, three prong cable, recap, and moving the tremolo to both channels. Nothing that can’t be undone.

    AA763 Nightmare

    So, would you have a suggestion as to why I’m getting 179 volts between a single side of the heater and ground? Just so I know which repair (new ground connections, new electrolytic caps, new anode lode resistors) actually fixed it.

    AA763 Nightmare

    I recently purchased three 60's Bandmasters from a local vintage guitar shop. Two AB763, one AA763. I've been in the process of doing some of @robrob 's wonderful mods to each of them along with a Quad Reverb I bought. All are done except one. I've opened up the last Bandmaster (the AA763) and...

    Sticky TS-10 footswitch

    Good to know. Sadly, I don't think I can use that as I don't think I'll be able to get to where it needs to be in that manner.

    Sticky TS-10 footswitch

    Hello lads. Got a question for everyone out there. I have a pair of Ibanez TS-10 pedals on my workbench. One, simple enough, had a loose joint on the power supply plug. The other, has a sticky footswitch. Not the actual internal switch, but the plastic latch that triggers the internal switch...

    Looking for a good layout and schematic for a 100+ watt tube bass amp

    Hello! Thanks to this wonderful forum, over the last two years, I've been able to enter the amp building community. I've finished about eight builds now, and, with each one, I've gotten better and better. The other day I picked up a Super Twin/Studio Bass chassis for next to nothing. No...

    DIY Neck Shaving?

    Exactly. I'm not going in on a bass worth anything. When I first started refinishing things, I didn't start with my SG, I started on a cheap import. Same thing here.

    DIY Neck Shaving?

    Let me be clear, this bass, brand new, cost me less than $200. It's not worth much after all the other modifications we've done over the years.

    DIY Neck Shaving?

    I just like to get multiple opinions before I undertake an endeavor. I've considered using the rasp and file method or just going the extremely slow but arguably more precise route of simply sanding. I just want to know what everyone else has done.

    DIY Neck Shaving?

    Hope this is the right place to post this. Our bassist has a set neck Thunderbird clone that has a crazy fat neck on it. The closest I've ever seen to being literally half a baseball bat. How would one go about shaving it down? I consider myself fairly competent in these areas, but I tend not to...

    Building an Attenuator/Loadbox with line out (Please check my work.)

    Thanks to everyone for looking over my first design here. I'll definitely be trying some of these other ones as well. I'm happy to say, it works!
