I removed the finish off my Baja body. The poly finish was thinner than I expected, so it reduced only about 100g. It rings so much better after though. I'm thinking about removing my another Baja body.
Some of you might find this video interesting.
They think the stock BD2 is completely useless, buried in the mix as soon as you step on it, at 9V but find it useful as a fuzz at 4V, and sound good as a drive pedal at 18V.
If I could start from the begging of my learning, I'd definitely learn scales immediately. Learning scales doesn't mean you learn patterns on the fretboard though. For me it's how to harmonize notes within a scale, understand the relationship between chords and melodies, and being able to hear...
I used to own one but never noticed if the headstock was angled. I miss that neck though, if only the radius was 7.25" or 9.5"... It's kinda weird that 12" on Gibson is fine but 12" on a Fender neck is no for me.
Sorry to derail the thread.
I don't know anything about the pedal, but I love vibrato effects. I never use it as a weird noise making machine though. Just use it as a very subtle effect when you play some chordal stuff with clean or a slight gain. I actually like the Univibe's vibrato mode more than the chorus mode.
Hmmm, really? The EJ Strat uses staggered tuners and IIRC, its headstock is a bit thinner so that the angle from the nut becomes steeper, thus no string tree, but I never heard the angled headstock thing.
Thanks guys. Oh, so they are still doing the edge treatment on some of them. It's good to know. Apparently, a QC issue then. I'll keep trying to find another neck similar to my Baja's.
A couple of weeks ago, I asked a seller who was selling a 2015 Baja, assuming the neck had nice fat round...
So, here's a question to you Vintera owners. Are your Vintera neck's fretboard edges sharp or "slightly" rounded (I mean not like the rolled edges on relic guitars)?
I just want to make sure if MIM completely stopped this little nice treatment or not. I've had three Baja Teles (two 50s and one...
Well, I didn't watch the full videos but I noticed immediately that the 2nd video is not in Japan, but in China or Taiwan, so I assume this channel is by Chinese or Taiwanese as well.
And, other comments about "Japanese thing" for people outside is true and just fabricated silly stuff. No...
Soft V feels thin compared to fat C or U if depth is the same. And, what Fender calls soft V varies A TON. There are degrees of V-ness and they call them all soft V. Also, they make nut width 41mm - 43mm for the same model. I'm trying to find another Baja neck similar to the size of mine for 2...
I just bought a mint 50s road worn tele yesterday. I'm apparently not a fan of the tex-mex pups. Fortunately the neck is nice and chunky enough (still not as chunky as my Baja's though), so I think I'll just use the neck for my project w/ a stripped Baja body, then sell other parts.
Up until Mike Volts took over at Memphis factory in 2013, they had really terrible QC. At the time I'm pretty sure there are many people misunderstood their use of "Memphis Custom" naming and thought they were made at Custom Shop and better than the Nashville USA though. The only reason why...
I trust what techs say.
It's just a handy tool. I don't use it with my amps when I power it up, but I'd use it on others because they'd upset if I didn't.
And tbh, I wasn't following the rule; warming up tubes, blah blah, even before I learned the correct info on the net. 😅
