    Zeppelin “For Your Life” Live O2 Concert: Pickup Combination?

    Mixing that bridge pickup in gets it spanky and brighter sounding. Crank up a bright amp and keep the guitar controls well away from 10.

    Where did these all go? They were abundant just back in the winter. Everyone's gigging this summer, maybe? lol! Still looking...

    Our riding mower has fallen apart.

    I know I'm old because, not only do I get excited about awesome mowers, but I also get excited about friends getting new awesome mowers. Nothing like the smell of fresh cut grass and the peace of mowing while taking in a great album on headphones.

    My first backpacking adventure.

    Basically, but it could be adapted for different situations. Just four core areas to always cover.

    5 watter tone evaluation... please review!

    I was already thinking about building a 15" AlNiCo cab. I think you pushed me over the edge.

    My first backpacking adventure.

    Awesome. I love camping / hiking / exploring! I saw one of your photos and it looks fantastic. Always have: Bright Sharp Medical Deadly Here's a cool YT camping channel. It's not the most professional or very survival / bushcraft oriented for the hardcore, but you might like it because...

    Need some Greenback love, here! ...kinda casually keeping my eyes out for a pair of 60's JBL D120Fs, as well.

    WTB / WTT Pulsonic Cone T1281 / T1534 Celestion / Rola Speakers

    I came real close to one yesterday. At the last minute, the seller disclosed that the underside of the surround was trashed. What a heartbreaker! So, ya, still looking.

    T tops

    The one with the cover off and the magnet shown is an AlNiCo magnet (almost certainly A5), and I'm assuming that's the earlier patent number decal pickup. The covered one, it's a little hard to tell. Sometimes, it's obvious when the baseplate is mounted really deep or really shallow inside the...

    T tops

    If I remember right, and you might remember better, there was a typical late 60's / early 70's thick short A5 which had a much bigger, clearer, fuller and crisper sound that replaced the typical "late 70's / Shaw" era thinner, weaker and less defined short A5?

    T tops

    Unfortunately, the DCR figures don't indicate anything about the sound. If the one with lower reading DCR has a ceramic magnet in it, it will be twice as loud. If you show me clear photos of these, from all sides, but mostly the underside, even with the covers on, I can probably tell you about...

    T tops

    If you have a 1980 T-Top it could sound ENTIRELY different from a late 60's / early 70's T-Top. Gibson started using ceramic magnets, taller slugs, longer screws, and taller spacers in 1979. In that case, there would be little similarity between the two pickups, other than the bobbins with T's...
