    Man, I'm sorry to hear about that Herb. Glad you're feeling better! That is a damn fine looking guitar. I don't know anything about the greasbucket wiring. Could you give me a little more info, or a link? Thanks!

    So what's next on your agenda :p

    Hey Craig thanks :) , goggle Fender grease bucket tone circuit and you should get a bunch of hits , but in short it is a .01 and a .02 cap and a 4.7 k 1/4 w resistor wired up in my example to the 250k tone pot , I used a 500k volume pot . It is suppose to enable you to roll off the treble with no increase in bass , look for the Fender single pup grease bucket wiring diagram , that's what I went by. While I like the result so far I can't compare it to anything I have right now so I can't say if its hoopla or not , it does seem that the tone knob has a bit more noticable swing or use , but could just be me.
    Hmmmm , next on the agenda , you know , I have no idea , but I'll come up with something :D

    Lap Steel (of some sort :D)
    Balalaika - Hey, a triangle!
    Shamisen
    Cigar-box guitar

    Getting seduced by the dark side eh? :lol:. Yeh, every few years I get to thinking I have to have me one, then when I get it, I play it a few days, then it sits until I sell it :lol:. I really love the strat body, but can't seem to deal with the layout :rolleyes:
    What's even more funny, I don't currently have a strat and just sold my tele, BUT, I have a Squier strat I fully converted into a tele layout (play it a lot), and the only thing I have with a strat layout, doesn't remotely look like a strat (has a big cursive B on the headstock and a pawlonia body :lol:). Those, and "Old Blue"(which has a strat body BTW but has a bridge humbucker and strat neckpup) I play all the time, the others, not so much. Hopefully my upcoming Esquire-ish build, with it's pine body will get much love :D

    I can really understand that ;)


    As it should be! :lol:

    I am just catching up on all of your build threads, when I noticed the Lyme Disease thing. I hope the drugs have taken affect, and killed the dratted bugger. My wife & I have a friend who moved here from Vancouver, BC and she was diagnosed with MS, but it never got worse. So she researched and determined it was long resident Lyme's Disease, and she is on a regimen of antibiotics and the pains and weakness have subsided. She probably had it for 20 years. I hope you DO heal fast and completely. And of course, all of your builds are to die for, but don't.

    Power Supply

    What type of power cord are you using for the build. I recently bought a sidewinder off of eBay. It didn't have the power cord though. I figured it would be easy to find a replacement. I have tried several barrel tipped adapter cords. None work. Do you know the model power cord I need? Thanks

    For this winder with the sewing machine motor I used a regular extension cord and cut off the female end and wired up direct to the motor , if you have a Mark Wendt Sidewinder you are going to need a transformer to plug in , what are you looking for , you ask what I used for this build which is not compatable with the Sidewinder , take a picture and post it of your winder , I do also have a Sidewinder and will check the power transformer if that's what you need.
