    Show me your Lotuses

    I bought 2 Lotus guitars back in the early 90's. One was a Silverburst LP with Dimarzio HB's(PAF - Super Distortion combo). The other was a Red V that someone butchered and was a sweet deal at 20 dollars, I got the neck for a build I was working on and still have the 2 HB's that sound...

    14-year-old wants practice amp. What's good? Yamaha THR vs. Boss Dual Cube vs. what else?

    All the Boss/Roland Cube amps are great and have headphone jacks. Checking the local pawnshops can be great.

    Pickguard on or off!

    Some just look better without and yours is one of them. A clear guard would be nice.

    Another Unpopular Opinion

    Never cared for them, even when I was out of it.

    single pickup guitar: pickup location !

    My opinion is that a pickup in the middle position with a volume and tone, can easily mimic a neck position or bridge position sound and better than a neck alone or bridge alone pickup trying to mimic other positions.

    That was really good.

    Tesla cancels the CyberTruck!

    My thoughts exactly, looked like something from a 70's TV Sci-Fi.

    Duncan 1/4 Pound Pick-ups

    I bought the quarter pound pbass pickups and had to dip them in wax to tame them enough for decent usage. Guess they are all un - potted.

    3-D printed full neck pocket shims - viable solution?

    Thanks, good to know.

    3-D printed full neck pocket shims - viable solution?

    Only thing with this is I can't cut any shim under 1 degree.

    3-D printed full neck pocket shims - viable solution?

    I like the full pocket wedge approach as compared to a piece of cardboard, but the SM price adds up with shipping cost for a couple wood wafers. I cut my own now on my miter saw.

    Middle pickup alone has no hum

    That was my reaction too when I stumbled across the aluminum and no noise.:lol:

    Yes, spend all your money on guitars so you have nothing left.😆

    Because they were made for the semi-hollow body instead of the solid body. Jazzy tone.

    Wolfgang Van Halen likes them, he has a 3 color burst one and a natural finish one. I don't care for the funky headstock, I like the Strat shape on the old ones.
