    Small amp to cover jazz to classic rock...

    I just gigged my quilter superblock us. Into a 1x12 Jensen c12k... It nailed Kenny burrells late 50s tone on the 57 mode. Looking forward to opening it up for some rock n roll surf tones on the 61/65 .

    B+G bender tricks; what else can a G bender do?

    Yes, I use both G n B benders on the Hipshot. both set up to bend a tone. as far as tricks, I’d suggest you look at your CAGED chords and finger them taking into account where you are bending to/from.

    I'm thinking about getting a solar watch

    Yes. I have 2 solar watches A citizen eco drive and a g shock. Both work great with 6+ year of use. No battery or pressure testing costs that in the past were half the value of the watch.

    String through conversion on a Bigsby

    Read my recent post on the matter of pulling the pins and drilling thru. All went well until the drill bit broke in the barrel. I got it sorted but it looks a bit rough.

    Bigsby - pins out, drill thru…doh!

    Thx for your replys update, swapped the bored B5 onto another tele. works fine, no tuning issues, there’s enough string distance between the barrel and bridge to correct the alignment. i agree it looks rough but theres no sharps. proof will be in the playing.
