    Stuck neck

    New guitar, the neck does not want to budge. Heel adjustment of truss rod. I tried backing the screws out some and hitting as hard as I dared as to not damage the threads with a 1 1/2 lb lixie hammer. Nothing What do you guys do in a case like this? Bob

    NGD, but not for long

    I am sorry to say it’s going back to SW. Nothing wrong with the guitar, it just isn’t me. I am by no means a shredder. I am replacing it with a 50s Gold Top Epi

    I hadn’t turned my Deluxe Reverb on since I got a 68 Princeton a few weeks ago. I had the chance to swap for this bad boy the other day. The fat 50s sound absolutely glorious thru this. Everything else does well too. :-)

    Sticky neck

    My new Strat has a heel truss rod. Wanted to adjust it and the neck does not want to come out of the body. I did rap on the loosened screws harder than I would have liked, no movement at all. What is the next step without doing any damage? Bob

    Where do you guys buy your tubes?

    I have a Princeton Reverb that I want to replace the tubes in. I really don't want to pay Fender prices. Bob

    Picked this up the other day. Figured it would be a good place to put the Seth Lover pups I have into. Time will tell :)

    Player Plus pups

    Is it my imagination, or are the pups in the Strat somewhat dark?

    Stopped by my regular shop and this was hanging as a new trade in. 2021 build date, plastic on pickups, plastic on the pick guard, in a new hardshell case. Not a mark on it. I do need to get the story on it though. Needless to say it resides at my house now. :-)

    Fret end burrs

    If I had a beater guitar I would not have to ask. There are some burrs I would like to smoothen out. How much damage, if any, would running some fine paper up and down the edge of the fingerboard? Pao Ferro so there is no poly to worry about. Bob

    NGD again

    Stopped by my local shop yesterday and looked into the tech’s room to say hello, and oooh what’s that? “We just took it in on a trade.” 2020 limited edition Mim. Fat 50s in it and a roasted maple neck. Ah, ok, I’ll take it. 2 Strats in 2 days. First world issues :) Bob

    I had one of these a few years ago and can’t remember why I got rid if it. This one showed up locally used and the rest is history. Bob

    Couldn’t pass it up. Comes with Seymore Duncan 59s and JBs. This thing will down right scream, if you want it to. I’m liking it. Bob
