      Hi, Thanks for offering your help.
      Here it is, two RCA cables from my Hi-Fi stereo receiver go to the soundcard's left and right mono outputs, the soundcard is connected to the PC via USB, and whatever I do, the DAW (Audacity) can't see my headphones, plugged into the soundcard or the receiver. just started a conversation about this, sorry for posting here

      Greetings Simon, just a quick note to see how you are doing; I've been AFK due to other commitments but hope you're home from hospital and recovery is going well. Take care - SG

        Thank you. You're a very talented artist. I'll just be glad to get through the rest of the songs though. After that, I'll move on.

      Hi Simon. Saw your post in the "first strat" thread, where you say you played bass in a band called Monochrome Set. I'm listening to it now and really enjoying. Is this the track you play bass on?

      Hey Simon, Lon here. If you're interested in the Warmoth neck make me an offer. I spent 10 years in Europe so I know how dear everything is over there.

      Can't wait to see some pictures of that 335. I picked up a used Warren Haynes a few months back.

      Season's Greetings! :-D

      In a post from this year you say you have a "...wiring diagram that gives you most of the traditional Strat combinations, plus most of the useful Brian May combinations – but without messing up the traditional Strat control layout"

      I would be very interested in this. I like Strats and am currently putting one together BUT I don't really need a clone! So I got hold of a set of TriSonics(goodness knows how I am gonna find/modify the PickGuard!). I don't really like the strat mid pup on its own (but maybe I would if it was a TriSonic..?) & so am not too reluctant in losing it and I notice that Brian May himself does not love ALL the selections his Red Special offers so I am searching for a layout that would be easy to use in a not too modify Strat scratchplate.

      I think this would be easy enough as I quite like push/pull pots & rotary switches and when ya consider that a few positions on Brian's guitar are repeated AND single pickup selections don't actually need a phase switch then there must already be a simplified wiring diagram out here but I can't seem to find one!

      I can wire up guitars well with a diagram or, with patience(!), a schematic but I'm not too good at inventing them from scratch! I don't mind having no tone controls at all, by the way;-)

      Thank You for your time!

      Thank you Simoncroft for the reply. It was suggested to place my question on the proper board Pre-CBS. I have an appraisal from Gruhan in Nashville but it dates back to 2001. I can post some pics but don't know how to yet. Take care, dick

    Still playing. Still learning!

    The older I get, the less controls I seem to need on an amp. (But plug-ins on my DAW...)
