    High E Falling Off Board Up Near Body

    The neck pocket is tight (already tried that). The nut is fine. The string only falls off higher up towards body. I was thinking relocate bridge - only because it’s a Strat.

    We have tried a zillion different 10” & 12” speakers in our old BFPR. For low volume clean playing we liked an old Jensen P12P in there, but for all around playing we liked a Tone Tubby 40/40 ceramic. That’s what in there now.

    Best wood grain finish color?

    If you don’t mind a little extra work, I highly recommend first staining with an almost black (Jacobean etc), then sanding that off (it will remain in the grain), then doing some sort of light brown). That way the grain really pops. But if you’re gonna use tung oil or something like that you...

    Vintage Jensen p12p info needed

    The P12P was my go-to speaker for years. I’ve only got one left. It’s on top in my 2x12 tweed Bassman. I like them better than the P12N. I wouldn’t be afraid to run two in a bandmaster.

    Looking for a bright glassy, low output “50’s wind” Strat pickup Klein 59’?

    I have Klein 59s in neck & bridge of my RW board Strat, Klein 57 in middle. They are all awesome, but think the Klein 57 may be my fave Strat PU ever. Wouldn’t describe any of them as ‘glassy.’ Woody is prob a better description. Haven’t tried the 58, maybe I need too!

    Blackface Piggyback Amps...anyone own all of them?

    I’ve owned them all. Liked the Bandmaster better than Tremolux, but loved & kept the BF Tremo cab. I also loved the BF Showman, but it was a clean machine. Big piano sound bass notes. In fact my keys guy played an old first gen Fender Rhodes thru it that came from Chrissy McVie.

    Boss Blues Driver or Tube screamer?

    In case it hasn’t already been said enough - TS9 & 808 are totally diff beasts. Love my 808 clone til death do us part, but I’ve never bonded with a l TS9. But I use my 808 for warm hair, not SRV tone. Also a real BB circuit is bright & cutting, which can be very useful in a much diff way than...

    Another dirt/boost order thread

    I like the dirt with best ‘tone’ last and a clean boost after everything as a true clean boost. Whatever sounds best for you tho.

    Yeah, but underwound A3s are heavenly! My P90s have less output than my Teles….

    Yellowstone revisited.

    OK like most of these series it takes a while for the actors to inhabit their characters and bring the thing to life. I do believe that started to happen in episode four of 1883. Tim McGraw is quite the actor!

    Can you get a Tele to sound like a Strat?

    The Strat will also play different (less string tension) if you set it up with a floating trem.
