It's true, Popeye...I'm busted.
I confess...I said that a theoretical person who did an imagined thing would be a "doofus".
It was a terrible thing, and I am fully chastised and contrite.
Let's get on with business.
AT is a driver tube...like for your reverb circuit.
They can be used in V1 and have lower gain than a 12AX7, but there are structural differences that make it better for a driver.
The right driver tube can do glorious things for your verb.
As you know, the nut height is adjustable.
When you fret a note on the 3rd fret, the string should clear the 2nd fret by the tiniest amount possible...like an angstrom;)
You might not be able to get every string exact because you're not adjusting the slots individually.
The lightning bar is...
Truss rod adjustment is always first.
Your preferred gauge of strings brought up to tension (in tune).
Fret a note at the 1st fret (use a capo as a 3rd hand) and another where the neck joins the body...this is the effective length of the truss rod.
Find the fret midway between the 2 and check...
I still don't have much extra time on my hands, but I do feel like I need to do some things to fill the voids from things I really miss...LIKE FREAKIN' GIGS!!!... ahem...anyway...I've been wanting to electrify this one for awhile and finally got to it.

I was never warned or otherwise contacted.
I think I offended a sponsor who sells cans of magic snake oil mojo to unsuspecting dentists for too much money.
Anyway...I wish I could get this photo thing worked out.
I didn't think my crappy phone would take such high...
Hey, y'all...I'm back from banishment with something fun.
This one came up for sale locally and, for some reason, I just couldn't stop thinking about it...I normally wouldn't have given it much consideration, but...I don't know...it SPOKE to me.
The seller brought it to my place so I could check...
Are you one of the guys who runs this place?
I was a member in pretty damn good standing.
I think I pissed off some snake oil salesman who happened to be a sponsor...but I don't know.
I was cut off with no contact or conversation.
I didn't know if I was banned or not.
When I tried to make a...
Caffeine and resentment interfering with your reading comprehension, Matt?
Here...I'll walk you through it.
I supported the poster's decision to save the mangled old removed frets because I, too, know that there are people out there (said doofuses) who would care about said pieces of mangled...
