    My son and I are wiring up his jazzcaster, and we are using the attached diagram. I assumed this layout was shown from the back of the switch plate, but the tabs on our switch are opposite the diagram. Now I’m wondering if this diagram is shown from the front of the switch plate. We have it...

    How can I use a Crown PA amp for bass guitar?

    So I need a real cheap bass setup for some potential jamming with some friends. I have a bass speaker in a cabinet, a Crown amp, and a Fender Deluxe Jazz bass. I assume to make this work, I need some kind of a preamp to go between the bass and the amp. This is a garage jam, so volume will be...

    Anyone here using one of those Gimbal phone holders for video?

I've been flip flopping on giving it a try for a while, but I'm just not sure I understand how I play the files after I download them. I assume if I import...

    Do You Like Horseradish?

    My family is out tonight, so I'm a bachelor for supper. I grabbed a quick sandwich and thought I would catch up on TDPRI while I ate (we have a no tv or device rule at family meals). I was eating my roast beef and horseradish sandwich, and I suddenly wondered how many people like horseradish...

    The fret ends on my challenge build are just a little sharper than I care for. I have the Stewmac fret end bevel file, and those stainless steel fret board protector from Stewmac.

    Please explain the term floating baffle as it applies to Tweed cabinets

    Is the baffle on a tweed cabinet screwed to the front face or bolted loose? If it's screwed, I don't understand why it's called a floating baffle. I'm getting ready to build a tweed cabinet, and want to make sure I get this floating baffle thing correct. Also, what thickness of birch plywood...

    5F2a build. I'm looking for advice on speakers cabinet size and mods

    I picked up a 5F2a kit from Mojo on cyber Monday. I ordered it with no speaker, cabinet or tubes. I have a tube stash, so that isn't an issue. Now the question is what speaker, and what cabinet. I've been researching the "big box" Princeton from the late 50's, and I am leaning that way. If my...

    Got to see ZZ Top with Blackberry Smoke over the weekend

    I didn't know much about Blackberry Smoke prior to the show. I watched a couple YouTube videos the night before the show so I had an idea what I was in for. They did a great job overall. The lead singer and guitar player Charlie Starr seems to be the band. He danced around, sang, and played some...

    New guitar day

    Here it is. Good grief, I'm treading water on my challenge build, and I have the nerve to think about another build. I grabbed this mahogany at the wood store Saturday. I'm thinking about trying to clone Keith Richards "Dice" Les Paul Jr. double cut. I've never done any relicing, but I...

    I saw the Stones Saturday in Kansas City

    I don't want to spoil it for anyone planning to go, so I won't reveal any set list details. I will say it was a master class in straight up rock n roll. It was my first time seeing the Stones, and I left a bigger fan than I was coming in. They killed it! They were tight as a drum, and very...
