    Budget pickups

    The neck pickup is milder vintage type output and the bridge is very much if not identical to the Seymour Duncan Broadcaster.

    Low watt tube combo suggestions

    Check out a Supro Delta King 12 if you can. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/DeltaK12Twd--supro-delta-king-12-1-by-12-inch-15-watt-tube-combo-amp-tweed-and-black If you want simplicity the Fender Pro Jr is a great choice.

    Who made this blue speaker?

    It looks much like the Mojo British series minus their label. I have two here. Some say either the frame is from Eminence, rest Mojo or the complete speaker.

    Who still uses a 1" 8 track or 2" 16/24 track?

    A friend's studio in Nashville has 24 track tape and 32 track digital. I'll ask on how much usage the 24 gets.

    57 Humbuckers

    The outputs vary on '57s over the years. Pairs with more balanced outputs generally sound better meaning the neck has lower output than the bridge one. Actually the same applies with Burstbuckers.

    If you joined Joe walsh's band

    Just to mess with him would duplicate one of his late 1960s rigs such as '60s Telecaster or SG Junior with 100 watt Marshall Head or Twin Reverb, 4x12 slant cabinet and last but not least an Echoplex. :p

    Do pick ups degrade with age?

    Corrosion build up on the volume and tone pot contact surfaces would be more likely.

    Using the right cap

    You could try a .033 or .039 uf cap and be in between in values but still have a decent usable span on the tone control. Mylar film capacitors are very good and usually very close tolerance or exact value.

    Any way to make series wired brighter?

    Sounds like something circuit wise is not right especially when you mention taking the tone pot out of the circuit. Best to review all that. If you have Heartbreaker Bella Noire pickups those are more vintage and not hot output so don't think if those are an issue. I have 4-ways on 8...

    Best tele pickup for a parts caster.

    One of the best for medium output are the Caviler Nashville Lion bridge and Lion King neck. These balance really well and very versatile for different music styles. https://www.frettech.com/

    How to sound better with cheaps solid amp?for blues style

    If the amp has a mid range control try turning it up all the way.

    Boosted B.B.

    It sounds like BB switched the pickup selector to the neck and bridge one which resulted in a lesser sound output since the N+ B are parallel wound.

    Telecasters and fuzz

    Neil - mainly Gretsch Steven - some Gretsch, Guild Duane Eddy DE-400, either Gibson L-5 or a Super 400(?). 3 pickup Gibson Les Paul Custom Uno Mundo and Questions sound very much like archtop or semi hollow ones. He used an Esquire later with CSNY.

    Do you leave the strap on your guitar in its case?

    I leave them on stored if at home or out to play if.....case or bag isn't going to be around a lot of heat. Straps are mainly 100% cotton except the leather ends. No poly or nylon as those can react with guitar finishes especially in warm to hot areas.

    I seem to remember reading that Terry Kath used a Fender Dual Showman on some Chicago albums

    When I saw him live with CTA in '69 it was a Dual Showman with a SG Standard.
