    I would like to share with you a little something I had going on since few months: The makeover of a Danelectro DC59 Modified I've completed yesterday.

    Upgrades on 2016 R8

    Hello Folks, I've purchased a 2016 R8 in faded Tobacco finish in February this year. Since I wasn't really inspired by the standard electronics I decided to commit for few upgrades, similarly to what I already done on my ebony 335. Below you can find the R8 HGND thread...

    NGD - R8 Faded Tobacco

    Yesterday evening I payed a visit to my favourite guitar store looking for a cheap telecaster to keep as a backup to my recently acquired 335.

    Danelectro DC59 Hardware replacement (Gotoh VS Grover)

    Hi Folks, I've a very sweet Danelectro DC59 that I love to play for its twangy and bright sound. The only problem with it, is that the hardware (bridge and machine heads) is just plain rubbish. The bridge is made of a el cheapo alloy that wears out in tiny shavings every time you try...

    Adjusting a Danelectro DC59M bridge

    Hi all, I've recently purchased a Danelectro DC59 Modified, which has a wraparound adjustable bridge/tailpiece. The guitar itself has a great sound, but the damn bridge seems rubbish to me. First of all it's sitting in quite a steep route, and every time you want to change the strings, you...

    Entry level resonator

    Hi fellow guitar players :), long story short I'm in the market for a guitar capable to play even without being connected to an amp. Since I'm not that much into simple acoustic guitar sound I was thinking about buying a three cones resophonic guitar (which should sport the bluesy vintage...

    Hi Folks, I'm a pretty modest guitar player myself, but since I'm getting comfortable with my actual pedalboard setup I just want to start experimenting with a delay. I would like a pedal with a warm vintage sound but still simple and easy to control and therefore with just few knobs to mess...

    Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive and clean control

    Hi fellow musicians, I'm the proud owner of a voodoo lab sparkle drive pedal and although I absolutely love its overdriven tone I can't really figure out how the clean control works. Probably I've got terrible ears, but to me, raising the clean just sounds like lowering the gain and therefore...

    Bridge pickup volume pot problem

    Hi guys, I've a problem with my '10 LP standard plus honeyburst that I purchased at the end of may. Last night, while I was playing at very low volume, I noticed that the bridge volume pot was not affecting the volume at all, contrary to the neck one that was very touch-responsive. I don't...
