This unit is from 1969. I've had it since 1980 , it cost me only $ 79.00, has the original expression pedal and I have to replace the power switch and the new switch arrived today .

When I assemble or buy a new guitar, I do the neck alignment check, the weight check, neck dive check and sting height check.
The last thing I check is look for harmonic nodes between the bridge and neck.
If you do a rapid hammer on pull off flutter on all the strings while lightly touching...
Now, I don't have to lug around four amp heads.
My DigiTech 2112 SGS, has recreations of my Marshall JCM 800, VHT Pitbull, Carvin V3, Carvin X-100 B, Mesa Boogie Mark 3 / 5, Randall Warhead or any amp .... The Crate Power Blocks are set up to be like old Hiwatt heads at 150 watts, in stereo...
Saturday, I received a Crate Power Block from Reverb.
I took my four Laney stacks in stereo, each two stacks running off a Power Block.
I was amazed at the loudness and with a BBE 882 Sonic Maximizer and a Hush Noise Reduction unit through the effects loops .... It was amazing.

I have a 16.9k ohms pickup on my 2007 Epi LPC and recently installed the original bridge pickup that came with my LPC, installed it in the neck position , that is rated at 14.20k ohms.
The sound was a little muddy, even after installing a 15mf capacitor and lowering the pickup.
A friend told...
Is the nut of my 2007 Epiphone Les Paul Custom made of plastic or graphite ?
Years ago, I had some Tusq nuts put on my 1974 Gibson LPC and my 1971 Gibson Flying V and my Epiphone LPC projected ( still does) notes, sustains and punches just as much as my Gibson's.
Back in the 1980's, I was a traveling touring musician and I was in need of a Rockman style headphone style amp.
I was in Massachusetts and I went into the Daddy's Used Music store , it was a great North Eastern music chain store.
I asked the gentleman behind the counter if he had any headphone...
A local electronics store went out of business ( sad ) , I managed to get some Orange Drop capacitors at 0.01 mf, 15 mf, 33mf and 47 mf
Some are rated to 100 volts to 500 volts.
Will the 100 volts rated caps sound different from the 500 volt caps ?
I've been watching videos on how to refret guitars on YouTube. I am about to order the tools from Steward- MacDonald to do the job. I practiced on an old cheap neck I had laying around and it was a breeze after watching the videos.

I spent the last week moving into a new home.
Seven years ago, I had to give up my music room for my 8 year old Daughter.
We now have a 6 bedroom house, both Daughters have their own room and now I have my music room again !!!!
All I have to do is grab one of my guitars off their stands, fire...
I replaced the gold covered pickups off my 2007 EPI LPC , a year ago and it's rated at 14.20k ohms. It's a good sounding pickup, but it didn't have the Eq factor I wanted.
I'm thinking of putting it in another guitar ( made of alder ) and removing the gold cover off it.
Have any of you removed...
