    GRETCH COUNTRY GENTLEMAN VS? Electromatic Models ,

    After a month with my Gretsch Tri-Five, I feel the MIK Electromatic line is better than the Squier/Fender relationship. I played an early 60’s Double Anniversary along with a 1973 Country Gentleman, both long term in bands, and my Tri-Five feels better than both, and IMO, sounds better. My old...

    Pickguard Static

    Place a piece of aluminum foil such as Reynolds Wrap under the guard extending from (and a bit of the corner anchored under) the control plate to about the neck pickup. It doesn't have to touch the neck pup. This has solved the issue for me.

    Doghouse strings- anyone have tips for changing them?

    A pencil for lubricating, do them one at a time (to prevent the sound post from falling), and time.

    Classic ‘50 vs. American Performer, is it worth it?

    Is the "made in the USA' factor that it was made by Fender? If so, just remember that a MIM is made in a Fender factory.

    Danelectro 3011 ('58-'62) - Neck Pocket Adjustment?

    …not really sure what you have going on there. I didn’t have anything (mesh) sandwiched between the neck and body. My only issue after taking the neck off, then putting it back on, was the screws threading into the body before threading into the neck causing a gap between the neck and body...

    Danelectro 3011 ('58-'62) - Neck Pocket Adjustment?

    Maybe bore the screw holes in the body just a slight bit bigger to prevent the screws from threading into the body holes? I had to do that to my Silvertone 1419. Below is my rescue guitar before and after. Got it free from a friend. It was on its way to the dump.

    The dark side

    So….this forum enticed me to try out the Broadcaster blend/dark wiring. It was kind of cool, but not for me. I ended up switching back to the standard circuit on my 50s Classic Series with CS 51 Nocasters. It seemed the bright was too bright, and the dark was too dark. I love the middle ground...
