    My Trad ProV woke!

    My GC Trad Pro-V has the little dip switches in the control cavity. With these one can switch out coil tap for coil split, reassign high filters and “transient response,” etc. One by one I turned on all five while playing and hearing. Woke the guitar up pretty nicely, and turned it into the...

    Whats wrong with Gibson P90?

    I prefer the modern Gibson P-90 to aftermarket versions I’ve experienced. But in sets I like them to humbuck. Eli’s version usually does, Gibsons don’t unless you get inside them and change wires, reverse magnets etc. Nobody got time fo’ dat!

    Individual replacement tuners

    Oh. The ones I bought are not “vintage” vintage. They’re the modern size with threaded inserts, not press in. They look vintage. But fit Grover holes. Bought them at a GC because out here in the provinces you jump on it wherever you can when it’s hanging on a peg in front of you at a store it...

    Are the 'Custom Buckers' in new R9's a good pick up?

    Had Custombuckers in my CS ‘64 SG RI. I like Burstbuckers quite a bit. They were good. I kinda found out I like AlnicoV pickups, like Burstbucker Pro’s, etc. Snappier and present (in your face). Had those in a Studio LP that beat up my other guitars and bullied them.

    Individual replacement tuners

    You’ll need a mom&pop shop with a willing tech and a parts drawer. Pretty rare. A whole set is $89. Ask me how I know.

    The Leo Fender clean amp myth

    I like Fender amps! Loved the tweeds. Now I like the “blackface sound.” Want clean? Seventies Ampeg, especially with Altecs or JBL’s (but get a tailgate lift).

    Cupcake? Heresy? Pony? 4 stacks of plexi?

    Bridge radius on compound necks

    The idea behind compound radius is that the shape is derived from a conical fretboard. So to get the bridge right, it seems to me it should be even flatter, as if the cone shape continued. It’s a projection, like maps.

    Traditional Pro I question

    Today I did indeed swap out the tuners on my Classic (without adding any holes). Immediately changed them back! I had forgotten my vow about leaving stuff as-is: if it was alright in the store when I bought it, changing stuff will disrupt the the vibe and cause wrong notes!:slash:
