    I think I figured out my EJ Strat issue

    Hi all, Just an observation. Been struggling with the EJ Stratocaster and I think I know why. I find that my EJ Strat is on the dark side, I mean compared to my ‘52 Tele and American Strat. Am starting to think it is because of the speakers he uses. I have an Eminence EJ1250, alnico. It is a...

    Does hz Current difference affect my amp in any way?

    Hi Bebopbrain, Thanks. Will be traveling soon. The destination country has 50hz. I would now consider bringing one of my amps there since my Fender is 230v at 50hz and the country I am going to is Vietnam. Same exact ratings. Now out of curiosity, if my amp had a requirement of 230v at 60hz...

    Does hz Current difference affect my amp in any way?

    Hi all, Just a quick question. I just noticed that my Bassman has a power input requirement of 230v at 50hz. The country where I am at provides 220v at 60hz. Is there a problem with the differences in current? Thanks in advance!

    Bassman jumpered compression and headroom question

    Hey Ballynally2, I have tried both 5751 and 12ay7. Have NOS Sylvania 5751. The 12ay7 I didn’t care for but the 5751’s were nice. But I still preferred the 12ax7. Happy with the Tungsol 12ax7 in v1

    Pickups replacement questions

    Hi, Just curious, an in general question. When pickups for a Strat are replaced, are the pickup wires normally cut to a desired or ideal length or are they usually not cut and just installed? Do replacing pots and controls matter too? Or just replacing pickups is fine? Thanks. Loren

    Eric Johnson first Strat series vs Virginia

    I have the first generation EJ Strat (2006) and love the guitar. I've added a treble bleed circuit, and most recently a Callahan bridge, as the high E was getting to close to the edge of the fret board. The Callahan bridge made a big difference. Really like it ( although not cheap by bridge...

    Maybe you can add a shimmy and see if that helps?

    Eric Johnson first Strat series vs Virginia

    Hi Sloppychops, I noticed the nut was low for me. Another thing that I noticed with my EJ, it had a lot of bass. Being decked, having a lot of bass, I had mine set up to floating to minimize the bass side. Only using 3 springs now. To my ears, it worked. Less bass, more mids. Another benefit...

    Good point. Maybe why I switched back to non noiseless. Maybe I should have gone Kinman.
