    Finishing Prep - Tele Neck Pocket

    I've done a couple teles and always had the same problem you're describing with the chipping. I just cut it back a little bit so it isn't so thin and round it over so it doesn't have a square edge. The tele knockoff I have does not have a really thin section, they have cut it back a little bit...

    (Acoustic) Is this a multi-piece top?

    I think the solid-top question is a fair question. The guitar manufacturers don't really specify what they mean by that. So even if it is a bookmatched top, it is still solid in the sense that it isn't a plywood top. It is all solid wood, even though it is two pieces. For the sake of...

    The brand spanking new Fender Mustang GTX100

    I thought the cleans were decent in that video but the overdrive/distortion options were not good. Very solid state sounding to me.

    Replacing tuners on made in Korea Squier II Strat

    Hi everyone, I was given a Squier II Strat from a friend of mine a couple of years ago. The tuning keys were old and slipping, effectively making the guitar unplayable. I've been really into U2 lately and started thinking about this guitar so I ran the serial number, looks like it was made in...

    Mysterious Tweaker 15 Noise

    Oh for sure...definitely not trying to blow up the amp!:wow:

    Your Effects Pedalboard !!! Pics !!!

    Under normal circumstances I completely agree. But since using the unshielded wires, my setup has been the quietest it’s ever been. And the lights in my house usually cause some kind of him through the amp. I don’t get it but I’m not complaining. I did have a noisy amp issue a couple days ago...

    Mysterious Tweaker 15 Noise

    So the weird thing is, when I was swapping out tubes and was still having the noise issue, I had everything unplugged from the amp except the speaker cable. I was still getting noise, so it couldn't have been the guitar, pedalboard, or cables. I guess it could have been the speaker cable...

    New Pedalboard Build -- Update: Complete

    I like the idea and was initially planning on making a cover for it because I hate cleaning dust out of pedals! I've been looking at the design trying to figure out how I can do it. Might need to make a version 2. There are a few things I don't love about this design already...wish I had cut...

    Your Effects Pedalboard !!! Pics !!!

    The latest pedal layout: Made the board a little too short and couldn't fit everything I wanted on there. Realistically, I could pull a couple units off, but I like having so many options available! I suppose I'll just have to make a wider board...if anyone is interested in buying this one...

    Mysterious Tweaker 15 Noise

    No worries. The noise problem seems to have disappeared. When it shows up again I will swap in the new preamp tube and see what happens. I wouldn't consider the amp high gain so hopefully most preamp tubes will be quiet enough.

    Mysterious Tweaker 15 Noise

    Update...I realized I didn't try pulling V1 and powering everything on. The noise does go away when I turn on the amp without V1. Not sure what this proves, other than the noise could be coming from the preamp? EDIT: Ok, getting weirder. I also forgot to check if it was in my pedalboard, so...

    Mysterious Tweaker 15 Noise

    Hey guys, I noticed a somewhat prominent hissing noise when I turned my Egnater Tweaker 15 today. I turned the volume on the guitar all the way down and still get the hissing so I am assuming it is an amp issue, likely one of the tubes. I forget what I am running for power tubes (which is...

    New Pedalboard Build -- Update: Complete

    Thanks! I will update when the Velcro shows up. I also picked up a donner tap delay to make some more room. It felt wrong to pull off a couple pedals for some reason ;)
