    All Hog Customs...

    My old all 'hog LP is a bit dark, still fiddling with pickup heights to see if I can brighten it up a bit. I usually think "hogwash" when people start attributing huge tonal changes to minor construction or materials differences (like fingerboard woods, or short tenons), but this will be the...

    Older SD '59 worth repairing?

    I came in to suggest sending it to @cooljuk, he has repaired and wound a few pickups for me, always fast, reliable and affordable. Seems he has it covered!

    The Best Steely Dan Guitar Solos (besides Peg)

    Love me some Skunk, but I don't think he would have "fit" as a soloist on the Dan's later releases where they got more jazzier. And I always thought that Becker was a better soloist than some of the hired guns they would cycle through..

    Obsidian wire harnesses - anyone heard of/used them? Thoughts?

    No, from swapping pickups too much! Overtime, the little tabs on the top of the push in parts become worn away, so getting them to pop open and closed is harder. I did go through a few months of rotating the rear pickup frequently, so it wore down pretty quickly. They also seem to loose their...

    Obsidian wire harnesses - anyone heard of/used them? Thoughts?

    I have one of their "systems" in my SSH Strat for a while now... It is simple to use and install, making pickup swaps easy enough. However, I agree with James @cooljuk. Over time, the push in receptacles tend to wear down, making a solid, reliable contact harder and harder to obtain. I have...
