    I dumped the Bigsby and got a chinese model. did that to both my epis, the lp and the sheraton. they fit. they work perfectly. I'm happy! And cheap.. as little as 30.00 for the short ones.

    Safe Or...?

    I'm trying to decide what amp to build into this old radio. I was going with a Plexi Single Ended... but it has so many knobs. and only 6 watts. so maybe an 18 watt EL84 marshall style or a fender 6V6GT type.

    my newest toy...

    Mojotone has great kits, good support is there, too! Here's the thing... the tweed special from the guys at wattkins forums is a tweed deluxe messed with over several years. I can plug my lp into this thing and turn it on ten with the low end covered. I thought it was magic with my strat, too...

    the double toggle is series/parallel/single coil. It's unfinished as I intended to add more with push/push pots.. and maybe a kill switch. I got this on sale so I went at it.. the pups are one GFS and one Kent Armstrong. I tried a lot of gibsons and some others but these were what I kept. I...

    LOST AND FOUND..

    Before my stupid assed heart attack, and other complications.. someone sent me an amp to modify. I can't figure out who.. no notes, no return label, no email... zip. I don't wanna rip this guy off... even though he's never contacted me since then, I'm pretty sure he'd want the amp. I remember...

    It's chinese. I sold the bigsby I had on it and bought two of the chinese types. one is gold, on my sheraton II. I love 'em.. the only problem was the spring was quite long. so I had to cut it with a dremel cutting wheel. zip zip and I was happier than a Jewish mother at a briss.

    It's chinese! I had a real bigsby on my les paul and I just give this a try. I sold the bigsby and bought another chinese bigsby for my sheraton, same guitar as in the avatar. They work great. I do have the roller bridges on both. I think they were like 30.00 on wish... both over a year now...

I've added NFB on a switch since I took this pic. and of course power jewel and standby. 12" Eminence Cannibis Rex. All in a used Raven RG60 cabinet. Bases on the 5E3...

    All who buy a guitar just for a nice neck, pick ups and electronics (not name brand) please post.

    I've been very happy with my 91 sheraton. but... I also tried a harley benton 12 string this year.. and I tried a firefly 338. both of with I play a lot. They play fast and smooth and sound very good..much better than their price tags indicate. Of course, I had to change the pickguards on both...

    Current Production 12AY7 Tubes?

    I recently built this 1974X type not clone.. (top amp) and I tried my old GE 12AY7.. and it really really did the job. I then tried a new JJ 12AY7 and it was also a definite improvement. Not quite as nice, I don't think, as that GE.. it was smoother somehow I can't describe better. I would...
