    Picked up the Mesa PowerHouse Attenuator....

    It’s been years since I had one, it was a THD Hotplate. This one seems better from how I remember the THD, does exactly what I need it to do.

    To Bush or not to Bush....

    (Feel free to talk me out of it) The 53/57 is now “correct“ from ball end to string wind, except for the stud bushings, in her now is inch long RetroSpec bushings. But when I got the 50s studs, they came with the original 1 1/4 bushings, I planned on leaving them out, but they keep whispering...

    WTB- 8.4K and up 50s or 60s PAF

    Looking for a nice HOT screamer of a PAF for a bridge pickup. Long mag, short mag, as long as it cooks. I figure if someone has a few laying around, they might probably be here.

    How much is “just in our heads” ?

    The new conversion came with repro Klusons on, and originals in the case, put the 53 Klusons back on, and it just sounds better. Cant be.

    Straightening bent Klusons

    I’ve a set of 53 Klusons, ones a little bent, two are really bent. Whats a decent method to unbend, preferably without taking the tips off, if possible.

    Locking Grovers.

    How do you guys like em? I usually use the Gotoh Magnums, but they don’t come in nickel, so I’m thinking about the Grovers. Is it me, or do they stick out farther from the ears of the headstock than regular Milk Bottles?

    Making the 2018 R9 “mine”....

    Went with Wolfetone vintage white butyrate Timberwolf bridge/Marshallhead neck. Swapped the steel wheels to brass. Put on an early 60s wired ABR, it’s chrome, but it’s not glaringly different from the nickel tail. I’m still flirting with the idea of Grovers.

    One that got away....

    A few months ago, I was perusing the Internet at 2am in bed, while my wife was asleep. I stumbled on a Pat# purple wire that read 9.1k, I scooped it up in my shopping cart, and then hesitated, decided against it, and went to bed. Next morning, I woke up and said “F-it! I’m buying it!”. It was...

    All Hog Customs...

    I’ve a 2002 all mahogany Custom, it is DARK sounding, the darkest sounding Les Paul I’ve ever owned. Now 2002 is long before aluminum tailpieces and steel studs were on Historics, ya think it’s worth putting em on?

    2018 ABR Posts are....

    ...non magnetic stainless steel? I’m sorry, I’m so outta the loop on current Historics.

    How come nobody makes a “correct” ABR?

    I mean with all the aftermarket stuff, you‘d think it’s something that would be available. The Faber is closer tone wise, but still far off the mark.
