What's under the hood there regarding your electronics? I think I see an oil drum and a Pentium processor?
Eric Clapton Mid-Boost and a TBX pot
Roger that. I had not seen a Clapton mid-boost from the inside. There's more to it than I imagined.
It is like a gain pedal built in the guitar with a 25db boost
Next I plan to add these
I'd like to put some of those into a 3 bolt Tele to use as a travel guitar. Off the course of this thread, but it would be really handy to loosen the strings, remove the three neck screws, and fold the neck over the body and throw it in a small gym bag.
Hey if they improved the tone - even better!
i had a 60s japanese mosrite copy that was really really bad in the screw department.I had these laying around and rather than dowel & drill I gave em a razz.
tone change?hmm maybe more sustain?
The backplate changes tone? I didn't know that. My OCD wouldn't let me play them without the backplate tho
What is an OCD? And BTW, there is a thread on the "Tonefreaks" portion of this forum where actual players are denying that tonewood and the manner of string contact therewith makes a difference in amplified tone!!! Help me by cheking it out and commenting.
And what is this Clapton mid booster? What does it do? Where can it be bought? how much?
If nothing else, it's like an acoustic panel that vibrates sympatheticly with the guitar and the trem springs. Also you can hear the trem springs vibrating more with it off. It's an obvious difference acoustically, IMO.
Some people think that doesn't mean anything once you crank the amp up. I'm in the camp that thinks if it makes an acoustic difference, that will transfer to the pickups, at least a little. Pickups are all a bit microphonic. Just tap on them and listen. Your finger isn't ferrous.
Stick tubing inside the springs to stop the reverb vibrations. Helps with sustain as the strings ring longer
Sand your neck pocket and the bottom of neck before using these .It creates a virtual one piece Body /neck connection better than glued in (as the glue acts like a casket barrier.) These torque very hard.

I have been using this method and havs 0 tuning issues.I am very pleased let me tell you !!!
Ya, man. I've been following that method since the first time I tried it without fail. Ya gotta use good strings too, but once they are stretched and settled in just like that - rock solid tuning!
I have found pure nickel strings and heavy gauge thicken up the tone.
i've got those in mine... i have an 84 mij squier, so the truss rod adjustment is on the heel of the neck. and the wood bolts were a little loose, causing the neck to shift and get a little crooked.. put these in, and now the neck is so snug, i'm not sure i can even get it off again.. it's kinda ridiculous how tight i had to screw these down, but no more neck wobble..
so I don't get this string tying . The guy says you should do no more than 3 rounds.
I do only 1 round going straight to the hole is that good or bad.
I removed the back plate on mine.It made a small difference in tone.String changes are much easier now!
Hmmm..how bout this EARVANA NUT !!!
