    Running a Vox AC15c1 with an unbalanced PI tube

    Picked up a used Vox AC15c1 for a great price. The amp still had the stock Chinese tubes, and they were on the way out. Ordered a JJ tube kit for my Vox from Tubedepot, but none of the 12ax7 were marked as the balanced tube. If I plug in a unbalanced 12ax7 for the phase inverter, could that...

    Katana info

    1) Yes, I would say its a good price. 2) Yes and no. While the Katana is a good sounding amp, it does not sound tube for me. It can get close, but it never got 100% there for me. 3) For what the Katana is, its a great amp. Loud enough to play a band setting, power rating knob makes it useful...

    Bootstrap Pickups

    I actually love the PV65's. A huge improvement over the stock AVRI 62 Reissue pickups. they can be on the bright size depending on the amp, but nothing turning the tone knob down to 7 or 8 can't fix.

    Bootstrap Pickups

    Thanks for your opinion. I ordered myself some Lake Surfers. I have a set of PV65 pickups in my AVRI Jazzmaster and I love them, but i wanted to see if there was something a little different out there. the Bootstraps seem to be what i was looking for.

    Anyone tried Bootstrap’s Lake Surfer pickups?

    I’m looking to upgrade a Squier VM Jazzmaster I picked up on the cheap. I was going to go with Fender Pure Vintage 65 pickups, but the Bootstrap JM pickups have piqued my interest. Anyone have any opinions on these pickups?

    Minwax Gloss Lacquer over Milk Paint.

    Do you think putting a thin layer of shellac , like Sconnie suggested would prevent that problem?

    Minwax Gloss Lacquer over Milk Paint.

    Just painted a body with Folkart Milk paint. Waiting for it to dry for a week, and then I was going to top coat it with minwax gloss lacquer. Can anyone one tell me if I will have compatibility problems? Also, will gloss over the matte milk paint work, or am I wasting my time?

    Building a guitar with P90 routes. After thinking about it, I decided I wanted to go with mini humbuckers. Most from the well know brands are out of my price range. Anybody had experience with import mini hums that go for around $100 a set?

    Need to get myself out of a bind. Staining a basswood body.

    What was the mix you were using to get it on the wood? They sell Jacquard dye at a place by my work, but they suggest mixing with hot water for fabric. How do I get it to work with wood?

    Need to get myself out of a bind. Staining a basswood body.

    Unfortunately, Spraying paint is not an option. Sucks, cause those 2 colors would be perfect.
