    What have you bought guitar-related in the past 48 hrs?

    I would use 1Meg pots on wide range humbuckers. Having said that, I am probably not the best person to ask as I put 1Meg pots on everything. I feel 1Meg pots bring out the full sound of all passive pickups. But you should try both to see what you prefer.

    Amp gets transformer rewind, still has same problem!! (Rant)

    Your tech sounds suspect if he thinks a power transformer will be damaged by selecting the incorrect primary configuration. Subsequent circuitry perhaps yes. The transformer, no. Get a second opinion.

    Radio Frequency Interference

    I live next to a cell tower as well. What you are hearing is the amplifier circuit demodulating the cellular signal to an audio level frequency. Power conditioning and other tricks with the power supply are useless. You can mitigate some of this by making sure the amp chassis creates a full...

    Who do you like for pedal boards?

    I have a pedaltrain with a soft case I run off of eneloop rechargeable AA batteries. It is durable light and fairly inexpensive.

    Talk me into vintage 6 saddle bridges, or out of 3 barrel ones

    Why go backwards? Block style bridges intonate much better then the three saddle, more mechanically stable then the vintage six barrel saddle, and have a noticeably clearer tone then either in my experience. Having said that, if you want the classic clankey, twangy, slightly out of tune on...
