Okay, we aren't allowed do COVID threads. But my 3rd wife went to a family 40th birthday party in London and they all caught it.
We have separate bedrooms and we socially distance as far away from each other as possible.
Me not get it!
I don't think I stand a chance of catching Monkey Pox, phew!
I received a CV Tele the day before I went on holiday. Now I'm back I'm trying to set the guitar up with Gotoh 'in tune' compensated saddles.
It's taken me a couple of hours trying to get the intonation to an acceptable setup but bass E is being a pain. The rest is okay.
Is this normal as I...
Decided I'll try an Indonesian Squier after being satisfied with the QC ofan Ind' Revstar. I don't have a Tele'.
Checked guitar for any defects and all looks okay...
There's no contouring so I was kinda expecting she would weigh more than my Strat', sure was thinking 8 1/2 lbs
Visited my nearest guitar store a couple of months ago to get a replacement chorus pedal. They had a some demonstrator Revstars in there... had to try the Std 02t and 20, couldn't help myself.
Haven't had a 24.75 scale mahogany maple cap guitar with that type of bridge before. Les Pauls have...
Been playing around with these little guys and find them quite entertaining... small things satisfy small minds and all that lols
But seriously, if space is at a premium, you have small feet and have a small budget. These only cost a little over £20 GBP each and they do a job.
The knobs are...
Well new second hand GD
I've gone full circle, I started out on one of these;
Was browsing Market place and this little guitar was only 5 miles away and looking for a new home.
The only 'damage' is a little scrap on edge
No fret wear, Mum and Dad said they bought for daughter and she...
This is the last one... those famous last words.
The box looks like a jewelry box. A loop is a ring, I suppose.
Got a tuner inside.
Took me 10 minutes to work out the one button operation thing, ended up overdubbing overdubbing dross, but I got there
I was after a wah that could do a sweep clean without being too bright.
The rich switch fits the bill... so far
Add some distortion or go-to dirt channel, then the vintage selection cuts thru nicely
That Badass led is unnecessary, I can hear it when engaged, like with...
WARNING: CONTAINS MINT GREEN SCRATCH PLATE CONTENT!
I've gone full circle, from SSS to HSS back to SSS.
This time I'm rollin' with alnico II
This is how they measure up from the end of the wires;
Neck and Middle are sharing tone 1 and Bridge has tone 2, Sprague...
Ok I get it, cheaper components mean less longevity.
But they can sound terrific, near damn 6x less expensive than the real deal they are based on.
My question is?
I'm using rechargeable batteries instead of sag/swell transient mains adapters, so the cheap pedals should last longer?
Somebody help me!
In the early days of me playing guitar I felt I needed and bought lots of pedals.
But after spending X amount of cash on pedals I realized all I needed is an half descent valve amp, or two. That would be cheaper than the pedals that I purchased (that's a jest, almost)
