    Splitting Firewood Without A Block

    I'm going to a cabin next week. I have a bunch of wood in my garage to bring for the fire. Some needs to be split but I don't have a block to split it on. Can I just do it on the ground, or what's the best way to go about this?

    Another Outboard Reverb Tank Question

    Where does the "drip" come from? I've played tanks with more drip and tanks with less. Is that a tube thing or the type of reverb unit in the tank?

    Reverb Tank Question

    Hey All- I've had a growing fascination with reverb tanks lately but don't know that much about them. Question: What would affect the tone/sound/output of a reverb tank more, switching tubes or changing internal reverb units? Thanks in advance for any input.

    Look and feel of reverse headstock from player's perspective

    This is mine, I chose to have the reverse headstock due to string length issues when re-stringing. The Bigsby gives you less real estate past the nut and tuners

    Anyone Keep Their Guitars In The Case?

    So the wall hanging thread got me thinking, I usually only have one or two guitars out on a floor stand but the majority of time they stay in the case. One of the reasons is that I feel like the strings will decay much faster if left out due to dirt n dust in the air. Does anyone else keep them...

    Loosening strings while flying?

    I've seen it said around here several times that you should loosen your strings if taking your guitar on an airplane. What is the logic behind this? I haven't flown with a guitar in over 10 years but there was a period of about a year that I was doing it pretty regularly. I never loosened my...

    Filtertrons in Hollowbodies (like a Gretsch) vs Cabs

    Good Morning Y'all- About a year and a half ago I bought a Cabronita style from an independent builder. I got it with TV Jones Classics and I love the tone of it, not complaining about that. It just doesn't seem to have the same tone as a Gretsch. Maybe it's the hollowbodiness of the Gretsch...

    Question for those who fix their own cables

    How hard is it to learn to do this? I can't imagine that there are too many variable about why a cable goes bad. Is it usually a bad solder joint? I end up buying about 2-3 new cables a year, which isn't a lot, but I just feel bad when I have to throw one away because of something that can...

    What Else Do You Collect?

    After reading the GAS thread a thought occured to me this morning: I have a lot of hockey jerseys. I've always been a sports fan, and always enjoyed the aeshtetic aspect of it. Hockey is my favorite sport, and I think hockey jerseys are the best type of uniform in sports. Nice color schemes...

    Hey All- Last night I was at band practice and I blew a fuse in my Princeton Reverb. My question is, do fuses just blow sometimes, or is this an indicator that something else might be a problem? Thanks in advance for any input....

    Reverb Tank Questions

    Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but: I've been looking into buying an outboard reverb tank. I've been looking at Fender, but I see that there are others made by other companies. How do the ones from other companies compare? Are they all pretty similar, or is Fender a better...

    Bigsby Creaking

    Hey All- Not sure if this is the right place to post this. I have a Bigsby on my one and only Tele. It creaked a little when I first got it but I figured it was just "settling in" or something. Over the last year and a half, the creaking has gotten worse to the point that I almost can't use...

    Too Many Eric Johnsons....

    So we all know about Eric Johnson the guitar player, right? (If you don't, go check him out). I used to date a girl whose brother was Eric Johnson. Also, I was watching a show last night and on the ending credits a member of the staff was named Eric Johnson. I know that I've seen or met a...

    Legitimate Reason for Reverse Headstock?

    I've heard some people say that having a longer distance between the nut and low-E tuning peg affects the sound, perhaps tightens up the bass a little bit. Is this true, or is there any other legit reason for having a reverse headstock, or is this similar to the rosewood vs maple debate...

    Filtertrons for Surf?

    Hey All- Does anyone here use filtertron style pickups for surf music? Even if you don't play surf music, do these pickups give off a convincing surf tone? I've been interested in the Cabronitas lately, but I've only had a chance to play one once. Liked what I heard, but I'd like to get...

    Gretsch VS Cabronita

    Hello All- I was just wondering if someone that has experience with both Gretsch guitars and Cabronitas would mind comparing the two from a sound perspective? I know they use similar style (or the same) pickups, I'm just curious about the sound difference between a plank of wood body (tele)...

    What do you use to carry your pedalboard?

    Hey all- It's been on my list for a while to build my own pedal board. Nothing huge, maybe for about 6 pedals. My question is, what do you all carry yours in? I was looking at laptop bags because of the shoulder strap. That or some other type of shoulder bag. Anyone have any suggestions...

    Versatility of TV Jones

    Hello- I've been getting more and more interested in TV Jones pickups. I was just wondering, for anyone who has them, how is their versatility? I've heard clips and can hear that they're a little more "jangly" but how does this hold up in a band setting, specifically for styles such as blues...
