    Shipping rosewood FB guitar from US to Canada - what am I looking at?

    If I ship a Tele I build with a rosewood fretboard over the boarder to a buyer in Canada, what do I have to do? I know CITES has grown and changed and I'm not familiar with the process. I think it no longer matters if the FB is Indian or Brazilian, but I'm not confident in my knowledge of...

    I'm just starting off a project analyzing and comparing some different speakers and I thought you guys might enjoy some of my early results.... This is white noise: This is pink noise, but I haven't had a chance to make a fancy overlay out of it like the other.... ...and here is a more...

    Amp tech in the Las Vegas area (or SLC)?

    I've got an opportunity to buy an amp at a more than fair price, which reflects the fact that it needs a little love from a pro. It's a got some hum at idle with nothing plugged in and all the knobs down, with new tubes and clean power. I'd rather not poke around in this one and if I resell it...

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

    I'm short a few of these for a rig I'm rebuilding. The T1281 is the G12H-30 55Hz, Heavy Magnet, Bass Cone version Greenback. I think the date range is 1965-1972 but there might be some debate on that and I won't claim to be the final authority on it. If you have any you are willing to part...

    WTB / WTT - Blackburn for Kalamazoo

    I had to kick my XF1 habit at least a decade ago. My XF2 substitutions had to stop shortly after. SEDs and original Svets kept me hooked for a while but, even those are now out of my range. For power tubes, I've had to reluctantly convert to modern production. My bass clarity and full lower mids...

    Royal Amps?

    Anyone have one? Is the real-life feel legit? Better to DIY with real vintage? I'm more interested in the Hiwatt than the Plexi. I've already got a Plexi that runs KT88s (and it's epic!).

    Seen the new DiMarzio magnet-free 80's T-Top yet? :shock: :facepalm: :Ohno: :hmm: I like how the "designer" re-used the DiMarzio cloth tape on the T-Top bobbins. Classy move. :thumb:

    Greeny Burst Pickups - My Thoughts....

    Undoubtedly, there is much interest and much speculation about the Peter Green “Greeny” Burst pickups. Just like most people who claim to actually know some truth about that guitar, I've never once had it in my hands, much less been inside it or the pickups to know any facts about it. One...

    All About Rough Cast & "Polished" AlNiCo Magnets

    This comes up fairly regularly so I thought I'd just put together a comprehensive post, outlining some of what I've learned through my experiences and experiments with different foundries and magnets. Rough cast guitar magnets and “polished” guitar magnets are made the same way (at a given...

    Happy Independence Day!

    Happy Independence Day, you old glorious nation, you! May your Boston harbor always taste a little like tea and the ring of your liberty bell sustain longer than a long tenon Burst in the hands of Kossoff.

    Been spending lots of time on bass, lately.

    ...generally Texas rigs and topwater baits, bank fishing in big lakes. Sometimes finesse fishing with senkos and trickworms on weightless rigs. What did you think? I was all thumbs? These are just little guys. I've seen kids pull double digit lunkers out of this same lake...

    Anyone have experience with a vehicle shipping service?

    I'm moving in a few weeks and considering having my truck delivered, rather than driving it. I've got expensive snow tires on it I don't want to chew up and it's more built for slow romps on trails than distance highway driving. Plus, it frees me up to drive the moving truck and take only one...

    Telefy your Strat - New TeleStratster set!
