    New Eagles

    So is Vince taking Felder's guitar parts AND Frey's vocal parts? He's certainly capable. Who is now Eagles Inc? There were three, two voted the other one out, now there is one. Is Henley now the sole dictator of this mighty corporation?

    Isn't that about the cost of a 20' cable these days?

    New Eagles

    With Glenn gone maybe they could get Felder back?? Not that Stuart isn't a great player, he is, but it's a shame they're paying him to be somebody else while the original is languishing.

    How in the world does one play this guitar?

    You set it on your left thigh and jam the pointy end into your right thigh...but the point needs to be a good bit sharper to get a really good grip. To borrow another thread's title - just because you can doesn't mean you should...

    Just because we can, doesn’t mean we should. Car related.

    First-world whining. Life isn't supposed to be easy. If you don't like going to work just say so.

    AO 50’s, Mo’ Better Photos

    Get it in tune, make sure it's right, then in true Kluson fashion bend the shaft until it's in line with the others.

    Yellowstone revisited.

    Yeah, I was expecting pictures of hot spots in the meadows where falling snow instantly turns to steam surrounded by 30-foot drifts and such. Imagine my chagrin...

    I think I may be a goner.

    Has Gibson actually made a good management decision? How could such a thing happen? Are they playing the repented monster just to draw the customer base back into the fold, only to spring some new horror once they've got us? Like - Robotuners on EVERY Epiphone to clear their inventory and settle...

    Casino pickup swap...can it be done this way?

    Looks like we're both happy!

    Casino pickup swap...can it be done this way?

    Yes, but you said it almost defiantly...or apologetically. As if there are factions opposed to it who you half-expect to react negatively. Noobs. Purists. Self-admitted non-soldering klutzes. I say poo-poo on them - let them burn their fingers, dining-room tables and precious nitro finishes- I...

    Casino pickup swap...can it be done this way?

    Why wouldn't it be OK if its done neatly?

    Wiring help please - separate vol and tone bypasses

    Rev. B - Nope! You still have the resistive element from B to ground; it still functions as a volume pot. You must use the other half of the DPDT switch to lift the #3 terminal from ground.

    Did Hendrix record guitar parts twice ?

    Generally you get chorus when one side modulates slightly against the other, like if one side runs a little faster or slower. If they remain stationary relative to each other you'll get some comb filtering where some frequencies cancel, others boost, as in a frozen flange. If the two sides are...

    Did Hendrix record guitar parts twice ?

    I'd tend to record a rhythm track, pan it hard to one side, copy it hard to the other side and experiment with the delay to get the right fatness, often the delay itself wasn't perceptable. Not just rhythm guitars either, sometimes almost everything.

    First Parts caster help

    First you mount the neck & bridge plate and string up the 2 E's to make sure it all lines up (absolutely necessary if its a Guitar Fetish body; should probably always be done first no matter the brand or if it's new or used). Line the pickguard edges up with the neck pocket, also making sure its...

    Case repair question

    Good suggestions. If you have a glue gun around the house try that. The glue needs to stay flexible on both porous & non-porous materials.

    Slightly baffled by Eric Johnson

    He's a BOSS, and he can do whatever he wants whether I totally love every song or not. I tend to think of the songs that I don't care for as my failure rather than his. Same goes for Michael Hedges and many others.

    OT Placement Headphone Trick

    Dear OP - DO NOT DO ANY OF THE THINGS YOU WROTE ABOUT!!!!!!! None of it makes any sense, first of all, and second you will blow yourself and all your equipment and possibly your house sky high. You're not ready yet. Just play your guitar, get good, and get somebody who knows what they're doing...

    This was harder that I thought it was going to be

    My guess is high or low frets? Strings weren't packaged in sequential order? Low battery in tuner?
