    Bill Lawrence 5-Way Telecaster Mod Question on 5th Position

    How big is your tone cap? If it is too big it will cut all frequencies. The series cap in position 5 will block your dmm from reading ohms, this is normal.

    Should I chamber my baritone tele?

    I just got an Agile chiral parity. Says its under 6 lbs. Chambering after the fact will likely be a mess. It also won't remove as much weight as you think.

    Gretsch guitars...tell me about them

    Some of the new pickups are a bit different than the classic Gretsch stuff. The blacktop broadtrons for example are more like a PAF crossed with a Filtertron. I think they are capable of some great tones, like a really clear version of a PAF.

    Most Versitile Pickup Configuration

    A well voiced set of tone controls is your best friend. With HH, I like a PTB setup. The difference between single coil and humbucker tones is not as wide as we tend to think. Just look at Redd's playing above. You do have to select your tone caps carefully, but it can be done.

    Boring Song Sundays

    I say show up...... and sing. Those old hymns were most likely written for voices. Immerse yourself in the text, and the scriptures they come from, and you may develop a new appreciation for them. They may be boring to you, but they are sure to be somebody's favorites. Find them and find out...

    What's a decent cheap-ish guitar with decent Filtertron-style pickups?

    I have a Gretsch g5220 and i can tell you that the broadtrons do not sound like filtertrons. They sound good, but more like a good Paf. I just got some gfs trons, and they sound great. 3 different winds and colors. They also have adaptor rings and pickguards. I bought the classic, and they...

    Does this look like a bias adjustment pot?

    A trimpot that small in a circuit like that is called a 'fusible link'. It looks to be hooked up as an adjustable bias, but just pray your output tubes don't ever pull any grid current.

    The hardest part of sitting in "as a guest" with a church band?

    I have come to the realization that most Church bands are not that good. And it's usually because they don't know how to be good. Sometimes a little careful direction from a knowledgeable person can make a big difference.

    The hardest part of sitting in "as a guest" with a church band?

    I would always start with the assumption that any changes to be made need to be made slowly. People don't change overnight. I always like to show up ready and willing to work with whoever is there. Be willing to be a team player, and most of all be sure you are speaking the truth in love.

    NFB pot releasing light & smoke

    You might find that a switch works better in that position. You already have very little feedback in that amp. I would solder tack in a 1M pot, with the 100k still in place, and see if you like the results. You might find that the difference between a little fb and no fb is quite subtle.

    NFB pot releasing light & smoke

    Your circuit needs to go from 100k ohms to infinite, not to zero.

    NGD... it seems I've gone to the dark side.

    I'm really not a metal guy either. I do a lot of classic rock, blues, zydeco, country, soul, etc. I just want to rattle the pews in church.

    NGD... it seems I've gone to the dark side.

    Someone had .017 to .060 strings on it. Probably why you could do pull- ups on the strings the action was so high. I'll probably do a ptb type tone control on it to keep the mud in check.

    Wife and I are looking for a New Church and Worship Band to join... but I have some concerns.

    Goldilocks.... i didn't mean to hijack your thread. I do hope you find a good group to join. Finding a new church is harder than finding a new spouse. BTW... i have had that song you posted stuck in my head ever since. I like the podcast too.

    Waves of Grace Church Jam.

    I love making music with my family. My wife sings and plays keys, my sons play bass, drums, and guitar. I will keep doing it as long as i am able. I will praise God with every breath until i can no longer draw breath.

    First try for DC heater supply - voltage too high

    I have used 7812s for a simple, cheap, and stable dc supply for heaters in the past. It works great. Rivera style.

    Wife and I are looking for a New Church and Worship Band to join... but I have some concerns.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I always looked at it as being 'all things to all people'. Not sure where we will land, but i have never lost my connection to God. There's a great big harvest to be reaped and I'm gonna keep working.

    Wife and I are looking for a New Church and Worship Band to join... but I have some concerns.

    I just recently left my worship leading position. We just got a new pastor, and on day 1 the legalism started. I was told that my rock/blues/jazz/soul/zydeco/urban gospel/country/pop/klesmer/reggae worship music does not belong in church. After 27 years playing in worship bands, I have heard...

    EPIPHONE LES PAULS

    +1 on the Epi Ultra. I picked up one for 300 bucks used, in great condition. With a new set of pickups, it is a great LP for 6lbs-12oz. I too have had to find some lighter guitars to deal with my back issues (I am still recovering from my 4th stenosis in the last 5 years). I built a...
