    Seeking advice: 50’s wiring or Modern wiring?

    I have 4 LP's wired with modern for bridge and 50's for the neck. The tone pot is actually very interactive with the volume pot with 50's wiring. I like the versatility of this set up.. Good luck.

    Your Worst Concert Ever

    Bonnie raitt, jackson browne, and not keb mo. The musicians themselves were good, but all they did (Raitt and brown) is stress for people to go and vote. they played american folk music and after every song put down whoever was the republican running for president then. When people go to a...

    2016 Traditional 50's neck profile

    I am heading up Lay's Saturday I will ask them. I am dropping off my 78 Deluxe for a re-fret. They did my 80 Standard 2 years ago and it's amazing. I thinned necks years ago when I was a tech, but nothing as expensive as this. I don't want to compromise neck integrity or create stabilization...

    2016 Traditional 50's neck profile

    I really like my 16 Trad but just haven't bonded with the larger 50's style neck. My 2 Norlin era's and 19 Classic all feel relatively the same. My question is can the neck profile be changed to a 60's profile without compromising the neck stability since it is a mahogany neck ?

    Vineham pickups 6070's

    I have purchased a couple of sets of humbuckers (SV59's and 6070's) and I also have a Whisky burner. The 6070's are a great sounding pickup Craig does a great job on his pups. If anyone looking for a t-top type/paf type humbucker can't go wrong there ! I also have a Sweet V 59 set in my...

    61 zebra magnet change..

    I really like the 61 zebra pups in my 19 Classic, but there was a slight ice picky tone to bridge pickup. I swapped in a alnico II magnet into the bridge 61 and nice change kept the overall tone of the pickup but did rid it of the ice picky frequency i was hoping to cure. Anyone ever try any...

    NGD 2019 Classic Honey Burst is very nice !

    Since I recently got back into the band scene playing a couple times a month the bug for new guitars has bitten me. in 2016 I bought a new Traditional and really like that guitar, then I saw a open box return 2017 SG at MF so it fell into the cart, nice guitars. This week I saw a honey burst...

    cabinet versatility

    I am looking for a bit of versatility and some gear options, for larger rooms I like to run a 4x12 cab.Recently I have been thinking of carrying 2 2x12 cabs in our trailer both wired in series so each cab was 16 ohms. If running both and the amp changed to 8 ohm will two cabs in series matter?

    57 classic +

    I bought a used / never installed 57 classic plus zebra from a seller on ebay. I metered the pup and it reads a bit higher than my other 57 c+. My original is in the guitar (2016 traditional) and I know with the pot will read a bit lower than without it reads 7.8 with a 3 ft cable and pot all...
