    Leslie pickups and guitars are made by a forumite whose handle is "Mouse", the same that started this very thread.

    PM him if you wanna know more.

    HTH,

    Hey Amigo, neck is just PAF wind as yours and bridge is hotter PAF with more turns provided by slightly thinner wire but within PAF tolerance (.006 mm versus .0063 mm wire) alnico 5 and german made 15E steel poles, grunt.
    We decided not to go with 43AWG 15kohm because owner likes to play a lot in low tunings so that lows can be still pronounced nicely on stage. Lotsa metal guys find Paf alike winds to do the job perfectly for them, even without wax potting, since they mostly rely on the amp and buzz pedals seems to be out of fashion ...
    when metal guys started to use tube screamers to boost the solos you know it's turnaround.

    Little more Zepp fun with 3 gals.
    zoom h2, fender blues junior
    first part is somewhat cleanish setting to see the nature of guitars and pickups, volume and tone at max.
    second part is distorted setting, no pedals, bit of lighter strumming at the end of riff shows dynamics while tone and volume stays at max.

    just bunch of old leaky caps and resistors ...:D
    this would be ...oh it is..tweed bassman circuit done with early jtm45 style paxoline board. i need to wind some transformers for it...three of them actually, output transformer would combine 4k and 6.6k loads to mimic both bassman and jtm45 offset, since the circuit is the same. something like radiospares output transformer, anyways marshall failed right load for tubes and invented new sound :D if there was anybody who can read tubedata sheet ..it says 6.6k for cathode bias and 4k for fixed bias. they missed it again when they firstly reintroduced kt66 tubes because people at radiospares told them it's okay :D and finally they got it right with drake output transformer at 8k load.
    people think that circuit has got too much bass, but again without right load who can tell lol. marshall reintroduced thing again but now with wrong choke :D people seems to waste money thinking there is some better caps and resistors to improve things but the amp is sounding too compressed and dull with 20 Henry choke. now i'm going to get it right :laugh2: and poor me i'm going tu build everything from ground zero.
