    Really having trouble thinking of a PAF set to get for a les Paul.

    He doesnt want any help.. He does what he does on his own terms, and has been highly successful. Hes been winding 59 PAF clones since 1971. Tom was the 1st to start doing this. Billy Giibbons, Gary Moore, and Peter Frampton Albert King, Bo Diddly also helped Tom with the design, balance of the...

    Really having trouble thinking of a PAF set to get for a les Paul.

    Toms a 1 man operation, and makes his own bobbins, stamps out his own pickups covers, electroplates them himself. Only thing not done by Tom is, he doesnt make the magnets, or the wire. He hand polishes the covers. Tom also doesnt take prepayments, or do expedited service for more money.

    Really having trouble thinking of a PAF set to get for a les Paul.

    $550USD last time I checked, and I hear the wait time is down to 6 months. I waited 20 months on mine as Tom was sick and almost died. I got mine in 2014, and bought 2 sets. 1 set I still have in the boxes. They cost about the same as Throbak. Throbak would be my second choice. Either the SLE...

    Vegan runner asks neighbors to close windows when cooking meat with 'offensive' odor

    While I eat meat, I cant stand the smell of Sausage frying. If I smell it cooking, I get ill, and gag. I love the smell of steak cooking, especially with lots of garlic. But sausage make me violently ill for some reason.

ZERO PORK as it can cause Pancreatitis in dog. Very low fat Pork Loin is good, but you have to get the best low fat cut of it. It...

    Another PAF recommendation thread.

    Tom Holmes was probably the first person to try and crack the PAF code, though Tom is only trying to reproduce a 59 PAF spec. Not a 58, or 60 ect. He started in 1971. He was also George Gruhns electronics repairman for over 20 years, and has probably taken more PAFs apart, than anyone alive...

    Which tube brand?

    Ive still got the orgiinal preamp tubes that came in my 69 Dual Showman Rvb. I had the amp completely gone over, and modded to Blackface/ODS, and though I did put NOS Sylvania 6L6GCs back in, he told me to leave the preamp tubes alone. They must have 20,000 hours on them. Power Tubes probably...

    Which tube brand? Many don't cost much more than a modern tube. He also offers Noise/Microphonics test on a single ended Class A amp they use to test microphone tubes, and other critical applications where you want very quiet tubes. I have all my tubes tested that I buy from him, and have...

    Friday Meltdown..... Lets talk string gauge

    I use .010-.013-.015-.026-.032-.038 on both Strat, and LP, and have used this gauge since 1971. I tried .012-.056, and quickly chewed up my frets, and didn't really notice anything positive, except I could hit the strings harder. I don't use the 10-38 because I have weak fingers. Hendrix, and...

    Strings with less tension for bends

    10-38 Boomers. Can also sub an .009 for the 1st. Hendrix used 10-38s, and often subbed the .010 for a .009 in the studio. 10-13-15-26-32-38. Fender also makes them, and calls them the Voodoo Chile set, or some nonsense. They used to be called Fender Traditional 150's. Or the Billy Gibbons set...
