I‘m thinking of soldering a new harness for my Thinline (singlecoils) and wonder which cap I should use (Orange drop or maybe the new Jupiter x...
I‘ve read at TAD that the CTS vintage audio taper pots (250k) don‘t need a treble bleed? Can anyone confirm? Thanks!
No need finishing the roasted maple neck- burnish the wood from 180-2000 and enjoy the smoothness. Seal it with bored linseed oil for protection....
Thanks. Emerson recommend this for their wiring…I guess I‘ll have to order one to see
Length should be ok.
I‘ve done the same procedure with an Emerson kit before, no probs. Mojotone says no of course, they‘ve got their reasons I...
do you guys think I can shorten the pot distance of this Mojotone prewired kit by bending the bus wire to fit the shorter Thinline pot...
It‘s all about the pickup quality.
I love my neckpickups because they‘re top quality. Handwound by David Barfuss. They‘re clear yet warm,...

Great, thanks a lot!!!
By the way:
I‘ve tried an oil stain that dilutes perfectly in Tru Oil- no problems, but the effect is too weak. I‘ll give...
Why aren’t 8 coats enough?
Thanks for all your input. I‘ve finished a lot of stuff with TO so far and pretty happy with it. This time I was hoping for a bit more amberish...
Oil is just one of TO‘s ingredients, ~11% if I‘m right. You don‘t think the ~ 50% paint thinners inside TO will dilute the stain? Dunno if „stain“...
I‘ve found a concentrated stain that is soluble in denatured alcohol, works in nitro lacquer too. I think I‘ll give it a try
I‘ll try a different dye…or leave it as it is. ;)
Thanks. You mean this?
You‘ve tried yourself?
I know. I‘d like a bit more amber.
~ 8 coats, not polished yet. Open pore finish. I‘m happy with the finish so far but I was hoping for...
