    Any know what will replace the American Original series?

    Define "significantly" The Corona signature models are mostly $2k to about $2300... a few are higher, but the American Original is/was $100 more than the Clapton, and $50 more than the Yngwie and SRV models.

    Help with pickup wiring

    Capo the first fret to hold tension between the nut and tuners and prevent the strings from unwinding. Not an issue with locking tuners.

    Yep... You're talking to a guy who had 5 toggle switches on a Hondo Model H1 with a single humbucker and a Strat single coil. All I ever used was the straight humbucker. Same as any other time I added switchable options. Only thing I use is the Baja Tele switching options, and on a Strat, I...

    Katana 100 for 200 bux?

    100 has an effects loop that the 50 lacks... not sure about the older model. But be sure to carefully check it out. These modern (old) amps are effectively not repairable.

    G&L might have an issue with that.

    Any know what will replace the American Original series?

    They still are behind inflation. American Pro is around $1600 In 1978, my Strat was $600 Allowing for inflation, that's currently Les Paul prices. American Pro is a bargain.

    Ya, the Classic is the lower end Standard. Uncovered pickups (some prefer them), and it has coil tap push/pull pots... something I really didn't want. But it's still the same quality build, just lacks the figured top. It's funny because a few years ago, the "Classic" was more than the...

    Any know what will replace the American Original series?

    That would be easy enough... all they would have to do is simply not require him to use Fender amps on stage.

    Silly Question - anybody ever made a P90 humbucker?

    Ahh... So actually larger than standard humbuckers.

    Safety in unpacking a new nitro guitar…?

    I opened my Gibson R4 the moment it came in the front door. It shipped from Sweetwater to SoCal. Just make sure you don't have cold AC blowing on it when you open it and it'll be fine. Main concern is large temperature swings like leaving a nice warm club and carrying it out to the truck when...

    Difficulty measuring neck radius

    Those of us who have been playing for 40 years didn't even know these tools existed when we learned. We had a screwdriver, allen wrenches, and our ears and fingers. Some of us had feeler gauges in the garage, but we didn't have the internet to tell us what numbers we should be looking at. So we...

    Silly Question - anybody ever made a P90 humbucker?

    Gibson stacked them. Mojotone laid the coils on their sides like the Holy Grails

    Reverb Red Flag?

    Those can be unreliable, and unpredictable. I provide traffic video to the cops all the time. A lot of times, the suspect will duck into a parking lot... cops will check and either the business has horrible cameras, they're offline... or the owner/manager is being a "woke" d-bag and won't help...

    Reverb Red Flag?

    I drove a total of 400 for a $600 rifle. 200 miles round trip for the sale, then 200 miles 10 days later to pick it up. I couldn't talk the seller into meeting me halfway.

    Reverb Red Flag?

    Nope, there are no fees for the buyer, same as with Paypal. Sellers try to get buyers to use PPFF to avoid the Paypal fees and buyers stupidly do it, leaving them with no protection if the seller is less than trustworthy... which includes at least two sellers on this forum. Buyer might be...

    Reverb Red Flag?

    Not sure how my local PD would feel about someone hauling in an SVT......

    Any electricians on this forum?

    ##/3 conductor refers to a 4-conductor cable. The grounding conductor is not included in the count, so 6/3 (or 8/3) would be appropriate for a 240v appliance with a 120v "brain box". Ask for #6/4 and you'll get some funny looks ;)

    Reverb Red Flag?

    Did he message you about the cash offer through the Reverb messaging system? If so, do not engage. Reverb bots will detect it and restrict/block both accounts. But beyond that... It's the 15th, he probably gets paid on the 26th and intends to drive out the next weekend.... which happens to be...

    Typical electric stove is going to need a 50a circuit, which needs #6.

    1980's Kramer Focus Classic

    My DMZ was a little later than that one, with uncovered double-creme pickups and the multiple laminations on the body and the stop-tail bridge Did yours have wooden inlays on the back of the neck, or was it solid aluminum? Mine was inlayed. This isn't mine, but it's the same model.

    1980's Kramer Focus Classic

    They really did produce some nice guitars through the years. I had a DMZ-2000 "tuning fork", and later a Focus-4000 Rhoad's V. Still have the V.. need to dig it out for better pictures.

    Is this real?

    It's a real fake. No... it is not a Fender product.

    What's wrong with this wiring?

    It's there... it loops down under the axle against the pickguard.
