    Best 31 cents I ever spent

    I have now played 3 gigs and a couple "drive-by" sit-in performances with my latest parts caster. Joe Barden pickups wired to a 500k push-pull switch pot and HooP wiring. I have found the HooP setting to be incredibly useful in "dialing-in" a tone to fit well with other instruments. Using the...

    Never saw one of those in person before...

    2 weeks ago, I dropped in on a local blues jam night. As I was hitting the stage, I stepped over a pedal used by another player. An original Klon Centaur - interesting.

    Speaker output question

    I usually connect an 8 ohm cab to the speaker output jack on my Sundown Artist 50. For a huge outdoor gig next week, I plan to use a 4 ohm 2 x 12 cabinet. The Sundown has a switching jack for an extension speaker, so a 4 ohm tap on the OT is switched in when that jack is used. Any preference...

    2 Wiring questions for the experts

    1) Anyone have parts source ideas for extending pickup leads other than the solder & tape method. Molex or bayonet connectors? 2) I'm finishing up a rat rod with some "attitude" mods. I want to add a kill switch and a "buzz" switch. I thought the "buzz" would be easy, but I'm missing...

    Does your axe ever get the gig for you?

    Ever since I showed up at a blues jam last year with my Pre-CBS Precision Bass, I've gotten a lot of fill-in work which is accompanied by a request for the Fender. Nobody seems to specify amp, clothing or even specifics on playing, but everybody asks for the P-Bass. It's not the most ergonomic...

    < $4 nut file set

    At Lowes hardware, you can find an orifice cleaner for propane torches. Various stainless steel round files that work great for finish depth adjustments of nut slots. Probably great for saddles too. Looks like this Ken

    New forum member here. Just picked up a 1-piece swamp ash Warmoth Tele body at the Ohio Guitar Show and plan on finding parts to complete the project. I've been playing for a long time and avoided Telecasters since my first "good" guitar was a '57 Les Paul Junior TV model, and all the Teles I...
